Working in a Nucular Power station in S A, When the maintanance crew shorted out the safety circuit that racks the 1200amp automated breaker to do a planned maintenance, when they racked the breaker in they left the safety circuit disconnected and left a shifting spanner across 2 of the bus bars and these automated breakers rack themselves in 3 times before they disconnect, not much left of the room by the time it racked out for the 3rd and final time, great days

Was at the BBC for a few months down at White City. Access to some of the studio`s was available and I remember watching Paul Weller performing `Town called malice` and thinking hmmm I`m getting paid fot this.You would not believe how shabby the Top of the Pops set was! Also saw the MOTD boys and the AB FAB girls about the place and watched a few acts on Jools, yes we did some graft,too !

Wiring lights in bell tower of church at about 21:00 during winter, had to walk up 2 flights of creaky stairs to get to lights and about 20 mins into job i heard footsteps coming up stairs so i thought caretaker or somebody else had come to see me, but when i looked down nobody there and i also noticed that i could see if any cars were in car park but there were none and church was a way out in country, continued working thinking i had imagined it and the i heard footsteps again and a door creaking so i packed up tools (well i think i did) and made a run for it and i swear i could feel someone following me!!! nearly wrung clutch out of car taking off.
