    Mine was Billy Thorpe, 1963. Wagged school to go and see them. He went to he US a few years later and did pretty well. He died a few years ago at 60, pretty fit, just died. Some fancy guitar work here. <iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/WrHoEx7cpDM" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe> I think Chuck was in jail then. I did this once, only it was me in a Star Model Ford and a Mark VII Jag. No cops. Ford's didn't handle too well but they went faster, I got there first. 8) <iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/zov8kEFjja4" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

    Those guys are crims and run most of the drugs and illegal guns here, and some seem to think they're invincible but they're slowly killing each other off. Quicker the better for everyone. Strange how we can't get an extradition treaty with Lebanon, it was just do it and hop on a plane back home for a while but since Isis and Syria they've cracked down on that a bit.

    Wow four days, I hope the hospital rates are a bit less than here. Infection is very bad news, dust is a real problem I've heard, be careful. Glad it went well, best of luck for next week.

    If I was there I'd take all the box you could give me, it's great firewood and selling for about $200 a ton in Sydney and a bit more here if you can get it. I'm in Armidale. Got my battery charged but it's been pouring rain all day so no stump job this weekend. Couldn't jump start it because it was in the garage and couldn't get the truck close enough, won't happen again now I'm getting organised.

    I'm not sure about tomorrow, it's raining here as well. Had a couple of stumps to do, went to put the grinder on the trailer, flat battery.:X Went into town and bought a charger so should be right for the morning but forecast is heavy rain and it's a Saturday afternoon only job at the hospital. Wood Collector, I forget your name if I ever knew it. That Grey Box Psyllid sure killed some trees, pity most are in low income areas. Saw a lot of big dead ones a while back that were way out of their price range, lucky they take a long time to rot.

    Anyone having trouble embedding videos now? I've done it hundreds of times but they seem to just be too big now, and I haven't done anything. It could be this laptop but I'm sure I've embedded them here before on it. Can't seem to find an embedded video since you fixed the other problems Evan. <div style="position:relative;height:0;padding-bottom:75.0%"><iframe src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/hRX6hSGeZs4?ecver=2" width="480" height="360" frameborder="0" style="position:absolute;width:100%;height:100%;left:0" allowfullscreen></iframe></div>

    Another hedge day, last one. Did a tree for her 32 years ago at another house, she's in a townhouse now. They never forget a tidy job.

    Ran out of work so resorted to the dreaded hedges I've been putting off.:shaking: Five hours today on a Murraya hedge at a townhouse complex, down to 2' & six hours yesterday on one to 10'. Not sure what was worse, bending over on flat concrete or up and down a step ladder. Both better than the one on Friday, 10' Murraya and Photinia. I swear I'm never going back there every year but they are good payers. The things I have to do these days.

    $5.99 and postage would be around $8 to me. Then to you I'd have to check. See how you go, probably a lot cheaper from the US but if you get stuck I can get them. Edit. $46 economy or $65 express. About the same as US to here, sure hurts when you can't get it local.

    "Dense beyond the ability to understand." A guy I knew once was complaining about his neighbors not speaking to him, guess it had nothing to do with him leaving his V8 with extractors idling under their bedroom window at 5.30am for twenty minutes every morning while he had a shower. Then a big half mile trip to work.

    Ex cop/handyman from the local pub under priced me on a job a couple of years ago. He hired a polesaw to do it and ended up dropping it in the pool.:laughing6: Think he got away with it though.
