I think the followers of this forum will excuse me for posting something that has nothing to do with racing and everything to do with Nostalgia. Every Christmas Eve in Canada for over thirty years the country comes to a standstill to listen to Alan Maitland read "The Shepard" by Frederick Forsyth. I thought I would share it with you:
Thank you for posting this link!
Being from the US, I first heard this story only a few years ago on the CBC while on a long-distance drive to be with the family on Christmas Eve.
It is unusual in the way it is both chilling and moving at the same time, and it really stuck in my mind.
Making the same drive tonight, I was disappointed that I missed it, but here is a link to hear it! Thanks again.

I listened to it a day late - last thing on Christmas Day, unwinding before bed.
