Tennessee egg fight, historic UK theater

 

(1) In a family feud nearly two centuries old, two Appalachian families keep alive their tradition of egg fighting.  The annual Peters Hollow Easter Egg Fight in Stoney Creek, Tennessee, was a way to settle a dispute over which family's chickens laid  harder eggs.  (2) The Watermill Theatre in Berkshire, England, resides in a structure with a three hundred year history.  The wooden building that stands there today has served as a flour mill, a cloth mill, a paper mill, and since the 1960s as a theater for stage productions.
