If you are new to WhereDoesAllMyMoneyGo.com, every Friday I run a post called “A Lap Of The Blogs” which provides links to articles I found interesting and think that others may want to read for themselves. I also include some commentary on what’s going on in my personal life and a weekly “racing video” since my former life was in the auto-racing industry. The name “Lap of the Blogs” is in reference to “A Lap Of The Gods” which is an old video series which chronicled on-board footage of the world’s greatest F1 drivers lapping various racetracks from around the world.
In case you missed it, I made an appearance on CTV Newsnet last weekend. You can click here to watch the interview. Other than that, I flew into Calgary this morning and am flying back this evening (I’m writing this as I wait to board the plane home). That’s 8 hours of travel time for what amounted to 6 hours of meetings. Don’t think I could manage this commute everyday, suddenly Ajax to Oakville doesn’t feel so bad! :)

This Week’s Racing Video
A friend sent this to me on facebook: it’s a montage of some great Formula 1 clips with a more artistic slant. I love watching the slow-motion clips of what we refer to as moments that rank high on the “sphincter pucker factor”. Enjoy and have a great weekend everyone!
