The Sun King had many ailments during his lifetime consistent with diabetes: suppurating periostitis (1678), dental abscesses (1696), recurring boils, fainting spells, gout, dizziness, hot flushes, and headaches (cephalalgias).–Wikipedia
During WWII, before my father deployed, my parents moved all over the US. This month, my mom is changing address again, 3rd time in 21 months. She rangers on, I long for the stability of the homes she created.
The good stuff in life, free. Well made American desk. Steelcase? Was curbside on the 600 block of North Avenue a few days ago.
Corner of Cedar Hills and Hydraulic Road. The trees in this part of town are disappearing, soon to be replanted along the grand boulevards of Stonefield. I suppose the trees in the Route 29 median are gone for good.
Has the Muse of Architects been communicating on a regular basis with the builders of Stonefield? Will the addition of veneers, nature band-aids, signage, street lights and grifters make it feel more like Charlottesville? While the grifters might not be welcome to loiter and panhandle in the interior of Stonefield they’ll probably be able to set up along the Hydraulic frontage in the public right of way.

Look at it. It has cameras, wheels, it is looking for something. Looking for the trees and where did all the Martian water go? Curiosity has a Twitter Feed.
When will the Big Windowless at Stonefield be activated? Is it a DT mall slayer robot?

History is a matter of perception. It contains our worst assumptions and our truest truths – any time we come in contact with it we are changed. The many gifts of the people of faith who have built up this community in the past have provided a strong foundation for a vital parish of the future.— St. Paul’s Church, Beaufort NC

I asked her not to smile.
Through sensitive selection of signage, appurtenances and plantings this Charlottesville Area Transit bus stop fits comfortably in a rural central Virginia neighborhood.
Preservation Piedmont recently documented the structure, and has been in contact with leaders of the congregation and Charlottesville-Albemarle Regional Airport to try to locate a new owner who will assume the responsibility and expense of removing it from the site. As the parishioners of Pleasant Grove Baptist Church have recently moved to their new facility, the new owner of the historic church would be free to repurpose the historic structure.
The historic Pleasant Grove Baptist Church is a fine example of a rural church type that is fast disappearing from the county’s landscape; the last chance to preserve the structure is running out. If you are interested in helping to save this structure, please contact Preservation Piedmont at email@example.com or contact Bill Pahuta at CHO directly at 434-973-8342 x103.–Preservation Piedmont
