4/26 spin on the Blog Carousel

The Sun's Financial Diary has an article on "Where I Put Our Emergency Money." I do not keep an emergency fund, but for all you smart people that do, please read this article.

Advanced Personal Finance discusses "Money Smart Moves I Do Not Make." This article interested me greatly, only because I drive a very reliable 2001 Toyota RAV4. But I'm extremely interested in buying a Mercedes CLS-500. This will never happen, but the temptation is so incredibly great. I just love cars - this is a curse.

Money, Matter, and More Musings asks "Are Car Manufacturers Compromising on Safety In Favor of Style? The Story of Poor Bumper Design." The answer of course is a resounding yes. But check out the awesome picture of the 1981 Ford Escort!

Five Cent Nickel outlines "The Cost of a Wired World." The proliferation of computers (which are often left on 24/7, unlike your TV) is causing massive increases in electricity consumption. I've heard that you even consume a little electricity by leaving your TV plugged in (discussed here). I am not crazy enough to unplug it after every use.
