    Hey @Hodge, found out the other day, while we were away, the wooden horizontal beam on the power pole out the front of house snapped and all the power lines came down across our nature strip, driveway and from the house to the street. Bloke up the road rang Powercor, they didn't know anything about it & asked him to stay there until someone came. An hour later, someone came. Took them 10 hours to put it all back in place.
    Powercor haven't spoken to us about it. Thing is, we spend a fair bit of time out there gardening, we would have been killed had someone been there.

    I mowed under it today, I'd a been stuffed if it fell down again today.

    The lines end at our house, so they were flat down along the ground for at least 150 metres, including across the end of a street. Really makes me wonder if they DO check these things.

    Hey mate! Sounds like the wooden termination (end of line) low voltage cross-arm snapped...( like the one pictured? ) And brought the wires down to the deck.
    They are meant to be inspected at certain intervals. But sometimes the best structurally sound looking ones, snap the quickest with a bit of wind, a jolt, or something nudges a pole...

    Yeah, that's it's exactly what is is. The poles carry an additional two cross arms, which I'm told are high voltage, 3 phase I guess.

    I'd been looking at that thing for years & thinking, one day that'll bust & it did. Why do they use wood on the end beam??

    DJI Mavic Pro. No idea of the damage yet as I can't get it retrieved until Wednesday. It didn't crash to the ground so I am hoping it is not much more than props.

    After dealing with all the floggs on market place, most from a non English background we moved it on as is.

    Someone wanted me to bring it to them in Geelong about 60km away. I told them that I'll get a few mates over and we'll push it there but not today as it too hot and will take a few days. Another wanted to know why the front bar was a little different in colour, I suggested that I get it painted and then the paint man will deliver it to you. They both agreed.

    He found a car which is on hold till tomorrow afternoon, but he's finding it a little hard and overwhelming to get a personal loan. Think we will buy it for him and when he gets approved he'll just pay us back. He's happy to get a loan as he wants to build a credit history (to buy a house). I think that he's apprenticeship wage and only 6 months into full time work is why he's getting knocked back. He's waiting on one with a balloon payment at the end of the loan which he may be eligible for. If he's still having trouble, we will look at been guarantor for him.

    Poor kid can't seem to get a break

    Read in the local rag, that the driver of one of the vehicles in the fatal crash at Mt Richmond had drugs in his system. FFS!!

    Bloody hell what a waste Craig, how very sad. Sometimes you feel like it's a bloody gamble.

    Just this morning, there was a guy stopped at a stop sign, half a car length over the lines on the road. Usually not a problem. But then a delivery guy with a trolley walked into the centre of the road, then a log truck appeared, then a car decided to turn right in front of the guy at the Stop sign. The whole bloody situation went from safe to a potential disaster in about 1.5 seconds.

    I am annoyed that I did not become a professional tennis player. With those credentials I would be classed as an ESSENTIAL FUKN SERVICES WORKER in Victoria by DAN AND HIS CLOWNS.

    Angry that I didn't invest in cryptocurrency a few years ago. I did look into it but thought, nah that's not going anywhere.

    I did take the plunge and I'll seen my money double in less than a week. Imagine if I bought those 5 bitcoins for $200 each back then.. oh well better late than never..
