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…

Filming wraps up this Saturday for the pilot of a TV show in development with the W Network. It’s been a wild experience, and I’ve really enjoyed working with the crew. The next stage is to see if the network likes it and will order up a series. I’ll keep you posted, and wish us luck in the mean time! :)

From Around The Blogosphere

Canadian Capitalist is celebrating five years of blogging with a great giveaway of $100 gift cards to retailers of your choice! Five years is quite a milestone. My blog is only 2.5 years old, or 50% of CC’s blog. BUT consider this: when CC’s blog turns 10, my blog will be 7.5 years old, or 75%… so I’m catching him, and I may pass him eventually. :P

This Week’s Racing Video

When men were men… a tribute to the Group B rally cars. Back then, almost as fast as F1 cars, even though they were on gravel. Mind-boggling stuff. Enjoy!
