Sliding Interior Barn Doors

Image
I want to add some sliding doors to my home.  I am putting some of my favorites on this page for reference.

Here is the basic hardware.

I like these doors, but I would put frosted glass in between the wood slats.  In order for them to match my home I would also paint them white.

Sliding picture frame wall makes it so that you have art on the door when it is open and closed.

If I put in the wood tile floor the doors made like this would really fit in.

Snowmageddon in Albany Georgia

Image
Last night there was a light dusting of snow that fell
on Albany, GA.  The near panic that preceded this icy precipitation down here was so extreme that even fast food restaurants were closing early on Tuesday afternoon.







Fortunately I live in a city that does not have a lot of people and all of the roads are flat.  One of the advantages in living in a less densely populated area is that when there is a weather storm there are less people to panic.  Living in a less densely populated area can also be a disadvantage when it comes to getting services and supplies close by, but this time things worked out OK.
 Today I have the day off because of this light dusting of snow.  I am glad to have a day to work on some home projects.
One of the projects that I worked on last night was I entered a contest to design the next jersey for my cycling group, Bicycling Commuter Cabal.


Looking for another camera.

Looking for a compact digital camera. This is the spot for taking notes. I want a small camera with a decent lens that takes raw images. It must also have manual F-stop and aperture settings.  I take a lot of pictures from my bike like this one.  My Samsung Galaxy Note 3 takes good images, but I want better.

I have an ancient Canon EOS 10D with a Cannon EF 20mm 1:28 lens.  I love taking still life and landscape photos with this camera and super sharp lens.  The dang thing is so heavy that I do not want to ride with it unless I am really on a camera taking picture ride.

The The Fujifilm FinePix F900EXR

This is another possibility.

Generally I have always purchased Canon cameras, but I may have to change.

Goals for 2014

Image
Here are my goals for this year.  These goals are personal goals and are not intended to replace any of my normal goals for being the best that I can be in all of my relationships.  I have found that I can have fun playing a game with my life and setting goals that I want to achieve.  Sometimes I make my goals and sometimes I do not, but I still am inspired to go for my dreams.



I rode 8,000 miles in 2013.  My goal was to ride 6,000 miles.  In 2014 I want to ride 10,000 miles.  I have not ridden 10,000 miles since about the mid 1990's.I will not drink soda with corn syrup this year.  I will not have sugary drinks during my lunch.I will ride my bike at least 5 miles each day.I will frame at least 5 of my pictures.I will sell at least one print of my artwork.
