There's not much I splurge on but I'd like to keep saving money to buy my dream car. I am a car guy.

There is so much to do at Golden Ears Park in Maple Ridge, including barbecuing, camping, canoeing, and boating. There's a beautiful lake and the views are spectacular.

"Om"...when I need peace, relaxation, or calm.

A movie you would highly recommend?
The Pursuit of Happyness.
