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…

Work is taking me out to BC for the next week, but while I will be away from home I will have the opportunity to have dinner with Squawkfox who runs a fantastic blog. Check it out here.

    Thanks for the mention, is Mark Webber the Stig?

    I wonder if Yes-men or Yes-women (Yes-people?) are underrated. I know that waitresses who tell me that I made an excellent choice among the types of beer are being insincere, but it sort of feels good anyway. I think the answer is to avoid Yes-men when it comes to anything important. Thanks for the mention.
