Kitchen Remodel – ‘planning’ and demo

It all began with what we thought would be the poor mans route to remodeling a kitchen.  Living with our 20 year old terra cotta tile floor and equally as old yellow oak cabinets that we would paint white with the Rust-Oleum Cabinet Transformations paint, DIY concrete counter tops, and a new island that would house our oven and cooktop (moved from their existing spots to make room for more dining area.)

Building A Custom Age Screen Modal

One of my current projects requires age screening to me COPPA and CARU laws.  These laws say children (under the age of 13) should not see content that is not age screened (twitter content, facebook content, tumblr, etc.), so I needed a way to hide the content for young eyes.

Requirements for the age screen are:

  • User must enter age
  • Must load prior to content becoming accessible
  • A cookie needs to be used to keep kiddo’s from just clicking the back button

The project is running on wordpress using a customized Reverie Framework, so I figured I could use the built in reveal component included in Foundation.

May not be MJ, but I can dribble with jQuery

As a budding web dev I’m constantly amazed with what folks out there do.  One of my latest projects has brought me to include some little animations or movements to help liven things up a little.  One of the little animations I wanted involves a bouncing basketball.  While I know it’s not much and possibly dirty code, I’m proud.

Uses jQuery and jQuery Easing.

Eye of the Storm

Life is easily one of the most rewarding and fulfilling journeys I can think of.  It is equally just as difficult, as I can attest to; with 10 years of bouncing between doctors and health issues, financial troubles, ridiculous amounts of slander and lost friends by Christians and non, you name it, I feel like I’ve (and by ‘I’ve’ I mean my family) been through it.  After dealing with these facts of life for so long, one tends to become dull to all emotions, relationships, blessings and failures.  I began telling myself, “this is my lot in life, God won’t give me more than I can handle, and I just need to clench my jaw and get ready for the next blow.”  And because I told myself this is what I’ve been given, I need to have the strength to handle it on my own.
