    I’ve been there 3 times it’s wonderful
    Once there was a service going on so took off our shoes and sat at the back and the instruments were playing the chanting was hypnotic and incense burners smelling lovely

    Hadn’t a clue what was going on but sat there for an hour and thought it was wonderful

    Enjoy your break David

    Happy Father's Day to all it applies to

    Unfortunately I dont have my dad - he passed away in 2011 at the age of 63. He wasnt a well man anyway but it caught up with him. Time doesnt seem to make it easier, in fact I'm wishing he was around to see his great grandchildren. I just hope wherever he is he is having fun and still plane watching and counting the amount of shuttles that are going to the international space station.

    Rest in peace dad :)

    85% dark? So rich that one square’s enough - and after a while all the rest taste like sweet grease - except m&m peanut ones, they have to be hidden
