I wanted to take this opportunity to thank everyone who donated to the TAW Syria Fund Drive. In the end, we raised over $5,000 to help preserve Syrian heritage sites and support Syrian refugees. You guys definitely came through, and I really appreciate it. Big TAW thanks go out to all the following donors (in no particular order):Patricia Matson (in Memory of Lloyd and Tina Elkins) Parker NewcombKevin McFaddenAimee PoppTerry DillonRichie WalkerAntti RasinenGeorgi PetrovGnanadeep KolliparaJohan TorneRita MathisJulie JonesTravis AndersonMatthew SmithJoseph CiglianoPaul and Meg StrongMichele DanaGary JonesSteven DiamondJulius (Jay) BennettBrenda BuxtonColby StearnsNed MastroBrent MallinckrodtMatthew BrauerGreg StrasburgRyan MurphyChristophe MandyBenjamin AmyBriauna DodsonMark SimmsRichard BurgessJan Willem van Dalen Radu-Iulian CostinBrian CollinsJulienne TracyDarren HartJared MageeHeather Jacobsen Jonathan BergdollNorman Casagrande Jed JoyceFranz RiveraMark WebsterBart NadeauSteven MalonePeter McIntyreAlan BarkerAndrew WrenBryant FairleyCarl ThorenChristopher HaysDavid WallaceDennis WhiteJason RosecastJeff EdelbrockJohn HolmesKeith BinnsKyle ParkerNatacha TracyPaul RossSam CummingScott BraytonWim HanceGregory Estey Gil ElgezI also need to mention that a lot of you have donated enough to get a prize, but haven’t given me your contact information, or let me know which prize you want. If you donated enough to get one of the prizes, please make sure you e-mail me at with your donation receipt, contact information, and letting me know which gift you want. You’ve already earned it, now I just need to get it to you!And now some logistics. The past few months were mostly about getting the Fund Drive up and running, and the past few weeks I’ve been overseas on a project. The end result is that I’m way behind in drafting new episodes for the series. In fact, before I write any more, I need to do more research. And before I do more research, I need to get the Fund Drive gifts prepared and shipped out to all the donors - which I’m hoping to do by the end of July, but may roll into early August, so please be patient! And I think you all know where this conversation is going. Yes, the end result is that it will likely be September before Bloodline picks up with the story of the Roman-Jewish War. It sucks, but there it is - and I wanted to give you advanced notice so you don’t think I dropped off the face of the earth. In the meantime, I’ll still be keeping in touch with listeners on Facebook and Twitter, so make sure you’re following me there. And if you want an update on when your prize is coming, you’re welcome to e-mail me at the meantime, thanks for helping out with the TAW Syria Fund Drive, and thanks again for listening!Scott C. . .
