I missed that as I was busy watching the annual worm racing competition.

Never ceases to amaze me how they train those worms to keep in their lanes.

After I left the navy, I applied to Trinity House, to become a Lightjhouse keeper....  but they turned me down because of my hobbies....

Re: British Submarine Racing Championships.

Talking of eggs when we used to buy most eggs from farms, home grown surplus, or our own chickens we used to get quite a high number of double yolkers, even some trebles.

But now buying them from supermarkets, whether "free range" or not I can't remember the last time we even had a double.

I wonder why? Unhappy chickens, been bred out, or strict food control. My moneys on not enough real food greens & bugs.

Re: British Submarine Racing Championships.

Double or triple-yolkers come from young hens on their first firing of aft torpedoes, and because they're desirable, the double yolkers are separated out at the sorting factory from the regular eggs and sold as "premium" produce, so, you can get them, but, they're "top shelf" eggs at a higher price...
