Hi everyone, may I join in the Christmas wishes and for those who don't celebrate Christmas, Happy Holidays (bah humbug).

Apologies for my absence and thanks to those who have contacted me privately, but I haven't been terribly well although I am roughly now back to where I was in early November. The big game changer for me was losing a close friend of 25 years, very suddenly, to brain cancer. Aged just 50, one day she was there, the next she was gone. I am surrounded by people who are receiving palliative care, and as such, only too often we lose someone we have known for months if not years and so I could be forgiven for thinking that I am inured to this kind of thing, however, nothing could be further than the truth and it shocked me more than I care to admit.

I am mindful of the fact that Randy recently had far more to deal with and his dignity and fortitude has given me some strength, but I confess the experience has cut the legs from under me to the point when one begins to question the whole purpose of our somewhat meagre existence.

Anyway enough of this. Best wishes to all my many GT40's friends and I hope 2018 brings you peace and happiness.

It won't happen on it's own though, you're going to have to dig in and help make it happen yourselves.

Be nice to each other :thumbsup:

Merry Christmas to all, and glad to hear you're kicking Keith. You're recent experiences give pause to be sure. It is, of course, unfortunate that some element of pain and suffering is simply part of the human condition. I do believe that our faith gives us the ability to face it with grace, dignity and humility, and you clearly exemplify that my friend. Peace be with you.

Merry Christmas everyone.
Be good to people, give them a hand up, but not a hand out, hold you loved ones close and enjoy this time of years when families come together
