Reflecting on his first ‘100 days’ in office, President Donald Trump stated that he thought that “the job would be easier”…?

“I miss my privacy and freedom”.  A sentiment often expressed by all US Presidents in the modern age who find themselves in the security bubble of the White House. The President also said he missed being able to take the wheel.

Seriously? Posh Public Bathroom Pops Up in NYC, complete with Classical Music, Local Art and Fresh Flowers.

In a park amid skyscrapers, a gem has emerged: A free-of-charge, air-conditioned public bathroom, inspired by visits to the city’s priciest hotels, is open to everyone. The rest room, costing nearly $300,000, comes complete with freshly delivered flowers, imported tiles, classical music and artwork.

The one-of –a –kind bathroom is housed in a building behind the New York Public Library in Manhattan.  Attendants with mops keep everything clean from 7 a.m. until midnight during the warm months and until 10 p.m. the rest of the year. By park rules, no tips are allowed.  Note: With the improvement of the park, the number of visitors has increased. And so has the wait. On the women’s side, the wait could be as long as 20 minutes.  https://goo.gl/PBVGLm
