A Lap Of The Blogs

Well it’s Friday again, and that means its time for the weekly edition of Lap Of The Blogs. I hope everyone has been enjoying the weekly racing videos. I’ll get right to it as I forgot my battery charger at the office and the battery in my laptop is on it’s last legs! :)

From Around The Blogosphere

In case you missed it, Part 1 of the conversation between Thicken My Wallet and myself on Investing in Bear Markets is here. 

The Canadian Capitalist had a very valuable post on a website (a free website) that allows you to opt out of a whole slate of telemarketing lists that will NOT be covered by the new Do Not Call Registry which is supposed to come in to effect later this year. Check out CC’s post on iOptOut.ca.

Frugal Trader from the Million Dollar Journey has some great back to basics advice on how to get started down the road on your own million dollar journey. 

Michael James On Money has a great post on efficient market theory and his interpretation of it’s validity

Tim from Canadian Dream: Free at 45 is very much on his way to early retirement and is sharing some confessions of a personal finance blogger. 

Jonathan Chevreau has a follow up on last weeks writings on mutual fund fees with this piece.

Ellen Roseman discusses The Perils of the 40 Year Mortgage. 

This Week’s Racing Video

Rally car drivers are amongst the craziest (and most skilled) drivers on the planet. This video is a compilation of some WRC Rally Cars (highest form of rally racing) making some big jumps during the course of competition. In case you didn’t know: there are no practice runs in a rally. The driver and co-driver can do a very slow speed reconnaissance run and that’s it. Yeah, these guys are crazy!

    Wow! Where is that Rally race held? I’ve never seen anything like that in California.

    Hi Jagdu – I believe every clip is from WRC rallies from all over the world. WRC – World Rally Championship. To my knowledge they still don’t have a WRC rally in the States, I think the closest one is in Mexico.

    Just do a google search on WRC rally and you’ll find tonnes of info.
