This is the bridge that I go over to get to work each day. The crane driver is apparently ok. Looks like I shall have to go to the pub tonight and wait until it is all cleared. What a shame. $5 jugs at the local pub for ANYTHING on tap!

This is the second version of the bridge ...a big ship crashed into the previous bridge in 1975 and brought it down. Locals are a little bit paraniod now and the bridge is closed when ever a ship goes through it.

...there is a maintanence walkway that is suspended under the bridge, that is what you see in the picture. In order to move it to the next section of the bridge it has to be disconnected and moved by crane (I suspect next time they will use a bigger crane!)

Reminds me of a propeller change out that went bad. The commanding officer (of the submarine) was in a hurry, so he insisted the base use their 10-ton crane to move a 27,000 pound prop. Well, splunk! Then they had to wait for the 100 ton floating crane to pickup the original crane and prop. Fortunately, no one got hurt other than some bumps.

Well, went to pub at 4pm. Paid full price for an hour. 5pm came, $5 jugs of hoegarden, duvel, James Squire Pale Ale, Moo Brew Pale Ale, Bees Neez.
The blokes that I were with normally just drink BMC (Cascade Draught) and I attempted to educate them! I bought the beers and told them to try them. They ended up buying BMC. ...you can take the horse to water...

6pm came and $6 jugs. Pool playing ability reached a peak.
7pm came and $7 jugs. Went home. Had tea. Went to bed a happy man.

Dibby, color me uneducated but how big (volume) is a jug and what is your dollar worth (compared to US)? just trying to get an idea of value.

1 jug is 1 litre
...or 2.82 x 12oz bottles

AU$5 = US$4.21

Would be like getting a 12oz bottle for $1.49
