    ... and most likely full propane tanks, that what triggered my comment about the neighbor :)

    It fits right in with that un capped oxygen bottle too! Ignorance is either BLISS, or the mother of invention... Is that nylon sling nailed into that beam as well??? ws

    When we were locked out in 2006, a picture showed up of a scab they hired. they had a 6 foot ladder on the top of a dodge minivan, a guy standing on the top rung reaching up to the MB (access point on aerial telephone cable) The vehicle was on an incline. This is something we would have been dismissed for. Perfectly accetable in replacement workers (scab).
