Weekend A La Carte (7/2)
I enjoyed a fantastic Canada Day yesterday.

Good times.
Where Those $ Are Going - In honor of Canada, Mint.com shows how Canadian households are spending their money. Surprises: .5% on gambling and almost 20% on transportation.
Spiritual Depression - This video trailer for a new edition of Martyn Lloyd-Jones’ Spiritual Depression is worth watching even if just to hear the Doctor doing what he did so well.
The Anthropogenic Planet - I don’t know what anthropogenic means, but it makes an interesting infographic at any rate. This one shows transportation routes all over the planet.

An Unfinished Progress - This is an interesting article from Bryan Loritts as he reflects on moving from a predominantly black church to a predominately white church and now to one that is multi-ethnic. (HT:JT)
The World’s Luckiest Squirrel - Yes, you read that right. Hopefully he survives with that bit of his tail missing…
