Well, That Was Fun!   3 comments

I don't recommend totally changing your hosting setup while you are also trying to do several other things. On the other hand it wasn't exactly my idea.

How-so-ever, I believe we are back.

Thanks for the notes of concern (which I can't reply to yet since I don't have the domain email working again yet).

Freeplay Athletic Training, 5301 Forest Drive Suites B-D: Fall 2017   no comments

Posted at 10:52 pm in closing












I noticed last weekend that there no cars at this 24-Hour fitness center at Four J's Plaza, and decided to take a closer look. It turns out that the center in fact had three of the four units at the plaza (an Allstate office has the other), and all are now for lease though the equipment is not yet gone.

As you can see here, the rightmost unit was originally Ela's European Market & Deli, with a Sprint and quick cash stores to the left. (The insurance office was already there then)

Grr, Watch This Spot!   no comments

Well, I just had a long and expensive conversation with my hosting company, the theme of which was basically, Well, by 'unlimited', we meant, you know, *limited*.

So.. This site will be moving to a dedicated server. It's supposed to go smoothly, but somehow these things never do. Hopefully we will be up on Anniversary Day, but if that door won't open for some period between now and then, that's what's going on.

Lil Mama's House, 440 Percival Road: Fall 2017 (temporary?)   no comments

Posted at 11:35 pm in closing





This local soul food restaurant apparently opened in 2015 and was active at least to June 2017. This stretch of Percival is on my route between home and the new Panera on Forest Drive, and I started wondering about the lack of cars at the place recently. Taking a closer look reveals no closing signage, but there is definitely work going on inside. I don't know if this is in preparation for a new tenant, or is an upfit for this restaurant.

Bojangles, 461 Columbia Avenue: 30 july 2017   no comments

Posted at 12:24 am in closing




While I'm by no means a Bojangles regular, I do like a sausage biscuit every now and then, and they make a decent one.

Judging from this State story, I think the basic issue here was that while this location did a reasonable business, it was in an older building that the chain just did not want to fool with anymore. Although commenter James R noted the quick paint job, it does not appear that there is anything as yet slated to go in here as the real estate sign is still up some 3+ months later.

The LoopNet listing has a nice picture of the Bojangles still in operation.

(Hat tip to commenter ED)
