Yeah sods law. The wall near tree down from the one in the pic had a huge bulge and my neighbour encouraged me to batter it as he had to take it down anyway. Quite wierd deliberately hitting a drystone wall.

Went to crane this windblown off a footpath the other day and had to abandon ship because there was a huge Hornets nest on there. Brave man up there from pest control , they were very angry:scared1:

We have an adapted line marker spray gun with a looooong handle welded on. Use cans of wasp nest killer- it really is an instant knockdown, but you'd want to use probably three cans for a big nest...and I'm not sure I'd have the balls around hornets!

Not a today post but were currently in the Netherlands until mid this week. So here's a few pictures of what we've been up to.

Meeting Bob Vermeer was an incredible thing for me, he sits down starts chatting away and I had to do a triple take at his name badge.

I hope you all enjoy and some pictures aren't arb related but more machinery.

Was it their 40th anniversary or something? Wasn't that your first clue that the boss man might be there? 
In Holland it was its 40th year. I expected to see Bob the MD in Emea and a few others from across Europe but for some reason I didn't expect the actual vermeer family members to be there. I call it my naivety moment.
