Brill idea for runnerbeans

BB, I agree, a spirit level is a friend for life, BUT, I was going to paint a mural (which is what I do ) in the US Virgin Islands, arrived on a tiny plane with my client who was clutching my big spirit level wrapped in bubblewrap, the very severe customs lady said 'What is that?' and all of us Brits said, 'It's a spirit level'. She looked a bit concerned and waived us through. I later learnt that in the US they call it a level. I think she thought that we were going to do seances around this thing.

Mine have flowered 2 years running, and so have neighbour's, I don't know anything about them, I assumed that they were like tulips and popped up year after year; mine have multiplied also.

It may be an ornamental vine i.e. it does not produce useful fruit? Photo would help.
