The tiles about to go on the roof of the second to last unit at the Ernest Rutherford Retirement Home in Stoke.
Originally planned and on the drawing board for 64 units 4 years ago, this picture shows the roof being finished on Unit 111. Unit 112 was the final one.
What can you say, in these fiscally difficult times, Ryman had an absolute stunner of a winner on their hands here!

Only saw the land based activity but, after seeing this ex Russian Mil Mi-8MTV-1 helicopter making numerous trips outbound with mini excavators and bobcats I had a deja vu feeling?
It reminded me of the same thing that happened a few years ago and suspected it may have been another ship like last time requiring its cargo leveled. After all, at this time of year it was hardly going to be a DOC contract?
Considering this machine and another smaller personnel carrier one, both headed in the direction of Open Sea, I suspected it wasn't erecting a mobile phone tower either.
And sure enough, thats exactly what it was the media are reporting, in fact its exactly the same ship as last time!

Very expensive looking camera, or is it 2 of them, mounted on the front of this Squirrel 300/350 chopper.
Going by the look of the 4 of them inspecting the map, their destination was......?
Could what Vin Diesel be talking about here, have something to do with it?
Does the name Riddoch ring a bell here?
