A-ha! I have found my trademark name for a weekly post on linking back to the community! Let me explain where the name comes from: I was in the auto racing industry for a few years (open wheel) and of course you can imagine that not only did I like driving, I was also a fan of the sport. There was a video series called "Lap of the Gods" which consisted of footage of top Formula 1 drivers taken from on-board of some of the most famous racetracks in the world. See below for a sample on-board video (although not an F1 car, and not part of the "Lap of the Gods" series).
Anyways, here we go through a "Lap of the Blogs":
The Canadian Capitalist reviews a survey that found people don’t like free money.
The Million Dollar Journey provides a plentiful resource on The Smith Manoeuvre.
The Quest for Four Pillars hosted the Carnival of Personal Finance (Canadian Edition!).
Jonathan Chevreau uncovers a great resource for fixed income investors.
Thicken My Wallet cover the ins and outs of the VISA IPO.
Thicken My Wallet also hosted a guest review of a really, really good book on RRSPs. :)
Larry McDonald explains why he hasn’t yet weighed in on the proposed Tax Free Savings Account.
I’ll stop there for now and in addition leave you with a sample of an on-board video. This particular video is of a "hill-climb" (or a time trial up a hill). Take a peak – it’s pretty cool!
