‘Twas the Night alright!

Hi there, Thanks for popping in. And thank you so much for tuning in to HOCHANDA today, and flying the Clarity flag ! Sooo busy! I guess the Half -Price offer was too good to pass up?

Without even leaving the kitchen, I managed in a very short space of time to get all riled and caught up in the corruption and devious, manipulative behaviour of…
