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…

My brother is getting married later this month and while looking up flights to Los Angeles online, Fiona discovered that we can save about $500 (less gas to and from for the extra distance) if we fly out of Buffalo instead of Toronto – what more could a personal finance blogger ask for? :) I’ll write about it in more detail in the next few weeks…

This Week’s Racing Video

This is one of my favourite videos. A former F1 driver takes his wife around a racetrack and she goes nuts trying to get him to slow down, which only makes him drive faster. I’m pretty sure he’s deaf in his right ear… :)
