A Lap Of The Blogs

If you are new to WhereDoesAllMyMoneyGo.com you should know that most Fridays I run a post called “A Lap Of The Blogs” in which I link to some articles of interest I’ve read in the past week. I also include a weekly “racing video” because my former life was in the auto racing industry… Enjoy!

Stay tuned next week as there is going to be a big announcement after Labour Day. Any guesses?

I’m on about day 10 of the detox diet and it hasn’t been too bad to stick to, but it sure does take some will power. I’ve dropped about 4 pounds so far, but the real benefit has been that my energy levels are up and my blood sugar is held fairly constant throughout the day which probably explains why I don’t get that afternoon drowsy spell anymore. Cutting out all dairy and processed foods has also led to a complete lack of bloating, which feels better than I thought it would. Or perhaps I didn’t realize how bloated I was! :) Only 50… more… days…

Episode 13 of the WhereDoesAllMyMoneyGo.com Internet Radio Show

The WDAMMG Internet Radio Show is an audio reproduction of what I’ve written about on the blog – it’s for those who may appreciate keeping up with content while doing other things (like working out, on the commute to work, etc.) Currently, we are now at over 1,700 subscribers. Episode 13 was just published and should show up in iTunes shortly (subscribe to the podcast here). Don’t have iTunes? You can listen to it here too.

From Around The Blogosphere

Ellen Roseman: Mortgage paid off? Ask for a reduction in home insurance.

Big Cajun Man: Why he’ll never get a vasectomy at 50% off. Or something like that…

Michael James on Money: When to start taking CPP?

Money Smarts Blog: A new direction for the blog and a book published by the author!

Canadian Capitalist: …has some fun with numbers only the way a personal finance blogger (and the readers) would appreciate. :)

Rob Carrick: You don’t have to be a millionaire to take this advice…

This Week’s Racing Video

This week’s video is off-topic, but well worth sharing. It’s actually a series of bloopers from a fishing show. They are so outlandish that it makes me wonder if they were all staged, but apparently this is a real show and these are real bloopers. This video was voted as one of the funniest videos on the internet – and the more you watch it, the more you appreciate it! Enjoy! (Click here to view if reading by email)
