Season’s Greetings, Happy Holidays and Merry Christmas

Often times you hear the phrase, “well, it goes without saying that we…blah, blah, blah”. Let me assure you that it most certainly does not go without saying around here.

From all of us at FBC to all of you who have sent messages of support, compassion, offers of help, donations, new Patreon accounts, tweets, Facebook posts and emails…It has been emotionally overwhelming and incredibly humbling. I feel like George Bailey at the old FBC Building and Loan! You may feel like Sean Bratches is the Henry F. Potter of the story but I tend to think he’s more the Clarence Odbody AS2 in this Wonderful Story. He probably likes a mulled wine, heavy on the cinnamon and light on the cloves for all I know.

The best gift I’ve received in a long time has been your support, your patronage and your kind donations. My wife asked me what I wanted for Christmas and I said nothing, I got all I wanted from the FBC community. I meant that, you all are the very best.

Given the need to change in 2018 and the desire to improve what we do, I’ve spent some time reading reviews of F1 podcasts/websites and I know there are other terrific casts out there and if we make it on anyone’s radar, it’s usually not without its criticism but that comes with the territory. The fact is, all of you who make up this community are what matters and it is your opinions I care most about.

You know that old notion that you get negative news far more frequently than any positive news? It’s been true. Many of the emails and other comments I get are negative or critical and that’s fine, I take them in the spirit they are intended but this recent spate of overwhelming positivity has swept the negatives out to sea. It has been astounding! Just when you think no one is listening and few actually like what you do, you get a phalanx of support from a community, to be perfectly honest, I wasn’t completely aware of, that exists. Messages from all over the world. From the farthest reaches.

Again, thank you and please have a safe and wonderful holiday season.
