Looked out of the window yesterday and there were men floating in the air along the electricity lines. Not a clue what they were doing but you wouldn't get me up there for all the tea in China!

It looks like they are checking the anti-vibration devices, thos dumbell things at each end of a cable run.  On the television I've seen american "wire workers" hanging off the side of a helicopter and earthing the charge with a stick!

Better on Terra firma, the more firma the less terra.

It's very odd to look out and see people apparently floating past in the distance. I used the zoom on the camera for the photo, btw.

Probably not a good time for one of them to say to another "Hey Bob, pass me a spanner..."
