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…
Mark your calendars for January 21st from 6pm to 10pm EST if you would like to join Peter Aceto (CEO of ING DIRECT Canada), Matt Hartley (technology reporter with The National Post), and myself for a “Meet and Tweet” at the Darkhorse Espresso Bar in Toronto. It would be great to meet with some readers and seeing as how the event is scheduled for four hours, I’m sure there will be lots of time to chat and discuss lots of topics.

This Week’s Racing Video
I found a few of these slow-motion videos that are just a blast to watch. This one has some great footage of Formula 1 cars, sportscars, rally cars and motorbikes. It’s really neat to see the slip angles of the bikes – just when you thought those guys were nuts as it is… :) Click here if you can’t see the embedded video below.
