These photos are taken near the cruise ship docks in Nassau, Bahamas. One shows an open splice in a bush about 3 foot high. The others show open runs of wires feeding holiday lights wrapped around the trunks of palm trees.

I wonder if this survived the rains and winds of Huricane Frances?

There's the answer for my old Boss,
cable does grow on trees!.
Jim, in the second pic, I can see a plug sticking up in the air, on the left side of the tree trunk, tell me, this isn't one of the many splices in this wiring.

Trumpy, that plug is plug/receptacle combination on the end of a string of christmas lights. The miniture lights are wrapped around the trunk, about 12" below the plug.
