A Lap Of The Blogs

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 sometimes 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. NOTE: you have to visit the actual website to see the embedded video – it may not appear in your email. Just click on the title of the email to see it…

The W Network has just re-launched their website and the pictures they’ve decided to use for me were taken at the height of a nasty cold I had during filming. On top of having a cold, I also had pink eye and the make-up artist had me dousing my eyeballs with some magic eye-ball whitener. Anyways, I’ll always chuckle to myself when I see that picture. And so can you: click here for the pic!

From Around The Blogosphere

Tonight is date night, but Fiona has graciously given me 20 minutes to whip off this week’s lap of the blogs so you’ll have to excuse the lack of commentary on each link:

Larry MacDonald: ETF Screener

Canadian Capitalist: Investing in Stamps, Coins, Comic Books, Baseball Cards and more…

Jonathan Chevreau: Wake-up call for financial advisors catering to the wealthy

The Money Gardener: Manulife cuts its dividend!

Big Cajun Man: I didn’t know I was that far in debt

Michael James on Money: Spending Mind Games

Million Dollar Journey: Getting the best deal on currency exchange

Thicken My Wallet: How to be a better employee

Four Pillars: Extreme Cheap!

This Week’s Racing Video

As you may know, I bought a serious racing kart a few weeks ago and last weekend was the first time I was able to let ‘er rip! I took a short video to show how much faster a 2 stroke kart (like mine) is compared to a 4 stroke kart (and these ones are probably faster than the indoor karts most people would be used to). There is no contest, and it’s a LOT of fun to drive. I’ll work on getting some on-board footage in the next month or two. P.S.: That’s my friend driving. He’s way slower than me. :) lol

  • Four Pillars

    Thanks for the link!

  • Canadian Capitalist

    Thanks Preet. Have a great weekend!

  • Michael James

    Thanks for the mention. The magic eye whitener must have worked well because I couldn’t figure out which eye was the problem.

  • Traciatim

    Wow, 2-stroke? I take you you don’t care about the environment at all?

  • Million Dollar Journey

    Wow, those karts look like a lot of fun! How fast would you say you were going?

    And thanks for the mention!

  • Preet

    @Traciatim – I make responsible environmental choices in other areas, so I’m okay with it. I’d happily switch to an electric kart once they are fast enough, safe enough, and don’t need to be charged every two laps.

    Gotta love photo magic. If you go directly to your profile page and see the larger picture you can kind of tell you were feeling aweful, but the pink eye thing doesn’t really show.

    BTW – really sweet go kart!!!
