We recently moved to a new house. I'm thinking of upgrading the
bathroom, but cannot decide on the toilet that would look best and yet
have some comfort. These are the ones I'm considering.
Plus, what's easiest to clean? What doesn't look too bad
if maintenance isn't perfect? #6?

That's for sure. My brother had been satisfied with a luxury house
built in the 60's or 70's, but his wife wanted something glamorous, and
even then she remodeled it. My SIL doesn't have the sense G-d gave a
billygoat when it comes to spending money. And she put in every
bathroom some fancy European looking toilet and EVERY time I used it, it
was dirty afterwards. I didn't have diarrhea or anything, but the water
area was tiny, so everything landed on the porcelain and made it dirty.
I otoh have standard Elgin toilets with a big pond in the bottom so
everything lands in the water and after I flush, the toilet is as clean
as when it was new.
If I were in my brother's shoes I would have taken my loss, taken out
the stupid toilets and put in standard ones.
The SIL also added a room to the 2nd floor** in which she put literally
20 pieces of exercise equipment, none of which she ever used. And it
shows. My brother, who has been thin all his life, used 2 or 3 of them
on occasion. But a whole room!!! She does go into business herself
but always loses money.
**At least it sat on a room that already existed on the first floor, but
it still must have cost plenty to add a room, for exercise equipment she
never used. And all one needs is one or two pieces, not 20.
Never makes airline reservations in advance, so she pays full dollar on
I got lucky. My wife won't spend more than a few bucks without checking.
I bet she has maybe $20 to #30 in her wallet and it is the same bill
that have been there for months. She has not had a charge on her credit
card for at least 6 months. I treat her well, she deserves it.
You must be real popular with the ladies ... if that's the only kind
of women you meet , you need to look elsewhere . Or maybe I got the last
good one . Mine doesn't overspend , overdrink , chase around on me , and
she's so frugal the Indian comes out ridin' the buffalo . Plus she's a
good cook and can sew ! I still don't know what she sees in me ...

You're sound like my wife ... frugal and opinionated ! <smiley> I
like my toys too , but tend to buy tools to maintain and repair our
"stuff" . Of course , every once in a while I get a tool just because I
want it , like the anvil I bought recently . I have no "need" to beat on
red hot metal with a hammerbut it sure is fun !
