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…

    Formula one begins in a few weeks! Thanks for the mention (oh and I got your RRSP book out of the Ottawa Public Library for an RRSP update) :-)

    Thanks for the link. I watched the show the other night – I guess Trahair bumped you? :)

    I rather enjoyed watching it – Amanda and Kevin are pretty entertaining.

    I was lucky enough to attend the F1 race in Shanghai in October 2008, seated outside of turn one complex. Definitely a great experience. That video gets across much better than television just HOW LOUD the cars truly are. And yet it still falls far short.

    The sound volume these cars produce when they are barely moving is impressive. My last time to an F1 race, I forgot ear plugs on qualifying day. It was tiring sticking my fingers in my ears for hours. Thanks for the mention.

    Thanks for link. It seems Canadian hockey teams are like stocks: they may have their downtimes but they usually make a comeback at some point.
