Wow and when David and I drove by there some weeks ago I remember mentioning, "boy, they sure have a lot of work to do!" I guess not now...Great perspective here, Stephen! Thank you sir!

All of a sudden I'm interested in another of your buildings, the nicely coloured one down the right hand side of the shot.
The demolition itself is also interesting, in as much as they make an absolute minimum of mess as they go along!
