Nine Emperor Gods Festival 8 - 17 October
« on: October 07, 2018, 03:29:04 PM »
Mrs TT has just gone out to buy the vegetables for this festival.  I seem to have been volunteered to take part.  No meat or alcohol 8 - 17 October. I did try and argue that the alcohol part could be relaxed, but to no avail.  No doubt, I will emerge morally and spiritually stronger at the end.
