    That looks like you're getting serious! Pliers and a manual, the start of many a big rebuild...

    The pliers were used to hold the manual open in the breeze. They're metric anyway, so no good on the Landy.

    They're a bit rough around the edges, but in this case you can take that as a compliment, well done.

    Does my heart good to see a bunch of kids in outdoor mode looking out instead of looking down at a faarking screen.:*sip*:thumb

    Weed spraying is a spring time job.

    A bit later had to reverse out of a spot and on lock too soon, dropped the front right into a wombat hole. I jumped ship, it was teetering :eekers

    Both back wheels were off the ground and the front right was hanging, with a bit of its trailing edge in contact with the edge of the hole. I managed to reverse it out standing at the side :bow

    As I rode off, I remembered I should have taken a pic or three, so you'll just have to take my word for it, it was close :knary

    Its a quandary, gets in the way of the hose reel for starters, and of course 'it'll never happen to me' :hmmmmm

    I do a bit of bee keeping. This is the second swarm I've collected this week. A small, easy one at my daughters place. I got one on Monday, 4m up a silky oak tree at my sisters place, about 20 litres of bees, a real big one.

    The one I got on Monday, two photos an hour apart. I spilled a few thousand of them, once they realise where the queen is they just march right on in, it's like a living stream.

    Didn't go quite as planned as she came home on a flatbed. Still having fuel issues. But damn it was nice while it lasted. Got her booked in with someone who knows what he's doing (hopefully). Have to get it sorted soon as I handed in my resignation last week and will be retired next month. Time to play.

    Got a second Ecoheat system installed last week. Got a 3 panel setup back in April and it works well, so went for a 2 panel this time as we'd run out of roof space for another 3 panel. Cheap to run, works well, and fits in with our heavily insulated passive solar design house. Recommended; http://www.ecoheataustralia.com.au
