That looks beautiful! I'm with Ian, they can take their time if this is what we are getting!

If this is the quality of work to expect, I can't wait to see what they have planned for the old Halifax Club.

There is a lot of rock down there...

I sure hope part of their plan includes a method of extracting the mini excavator from the hole once they're done!

I am increasingly convinced that KeithP has a folder on his computer labelled "Crap I said that some people laughed at one time" (mostly involving a D-8, KillerStairs, and Queen Judith) and periodically just continues to paste them into the threads for lack of something constructive to say. We've heard it Keith, Cat D-8. Har-har. Move on.

It has gotten to the point where I will read this thread, see a comment from someone, think "Cue a Cat D-8 sneer from Keith", and then scroll down and sure enough it is there! yawn.

I still laugh, it's still funny; it's also funny how long the wait is for these things to move along; those Moes, what a hoot.

Often it is subtle, but if you are paying attention you will get it. I often disagree with his opinions, but it doesn't mean I don't respect where they are coming from.

Keep in mind that this project is clearly progressing in a direction that irks Keith right to the core, yet he keeps his sense of humour and plays along with it.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but that's how I see it.

I find more and more in internet forums that when people don't agree with somebody's opinions they now tend to step it up to the level of personal attacks that are never appropriate or called for. I guess it's the "new normal"...

Now, back to the bickering and mud slinging...

I love reading Keith Ps stuff. He's the Donald Trump of SSP. Always making a scene. And i know in his heart, when he walks by the new library, he is proud of it though he will never admit.
