A forgotten gem.

The Barber Roselea Senior Center is part of the Columbus Department of Recreation and Parks. The building has always intrigued me as I'd catch glimpses of it from Croswell Rd. I finally decided to walk down and take a look. It's a very interesting building. I'd say it's a mix of 1930s and 1950s.

Even the side entrance is interesting

I couldn't find anything online about it's history. It's not clear if it was purpose built for the parks system or if it served a purpose before.

This is an interesting desk at a neighborhood thrift shop. The extra legs provide stability, an additional visual element and don't affect the leveling of the table because they don't contact the floor.

This is another non-furniture related post. This weekend marks the fifth anniversary of my graduation from Ohio University's MBA program. August 20th and 22nd have never been the same since. Congratulations to me and to every OU MBA past and present.

The problem with upgrading legacy hardware is that the new paint doesn't help the doors stay on.

The backlight went out on the Toshiba Satellite 1130-S155 that I've been working on. Looks like this'll be a VGA or S-Video out machine from now on.
