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!

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
