Celebrating my life!

Today is an extra special day for me. 19 years ago today I was in a car accident that has forever changed my life. For many years my life was full of severe chronic pain, surgeries, Dr. visits, countless hours of physiotherapy and trying every alternative remedy out there to ease my pain.

But since 1997 this has been a day to celebrate new life. I have been pain-free since then and able to work and live a normal life again. I thank God everyday for a pain-free body and the new life He has given me.

So to celebrate this weekend, I went golfing with my brother and the Zach cousins yesterday. We had an awesome time... just too bad that we all forgot cameras! Today, I celebrated with my wife and kids, and my brother and his family walking through the Othello Tunnels near Hope, BC.

The Theater is now open....

The Theater is finally finished. Everything worked out really well, and it looks just like I imagined it. We've watched several movies in there already. The boys' favourites to watch are Cars and Toy Story. The best surround sound/bass so far was on Master and Commander during the Pirate battles and canon explosions. Now Sarah doesn't hesitate to stay up late to stamp because I am busy watching cool HD shows/movies in 7.1 surround sound. Sports are awesome on the big screen. I'm pre-selling tickets for the Superbowl and Grey Cup. (kidding!)

Still in construction phase, but the end is in sight.

Construction Pics

Here are some construction pics of my theater room. The room is 12 X 20. Platform is 6' deep and 1' high, which is just right for the second row recliners. It could have actually been 7' deep, so I'm glad I didn't make it any smaller. The speaker wire is all ducted in which leads to the sound room in the back right corner, under the stairwell. The room is fully insulated with R-26 which is working quite well (except for big explosions - those shake the house!) Special thanks to my Father-in-law for all his help and expertise.

Theater Room

For all those who are curious about my theater, here's a couple pics. I will put a slideshow on later.

More to come!

A brush with the man who put GM racing on the map!...... Ron Fellows was THERE!

Here's the hat that I won and then got Ron to sign it.
This is the first signature car in Corvette history. Only 399 built. Only 33 coming to Canada.
