Winston Churchill and the Golden Toilet costing 5 million dollars

I always associated Winston Churchill with his cigar and most of his photos that float around the Net are with him smoking a cigar with a Homburg hat..

Little did I know he was using a Golden Toilet – just cannot believe it. An 18 carrot gold toilet costing around 5 million dollars.

And this came to light when it was reported that the golden toilet installed in the Beinheim Palace where he was born has been stolen. The thief apparently has been caught  It is also reported that knocking that toilet off has damaged the building.

All this got me interested to know more about that palace the only building that has that name which does not belong to royalty.

The information on this palace is fascinating  You can read about it here

I have been writing for various sites some of which have disappeared.  I have several interests including writing, photography, gardening, reaching out, cooking.  I have a blog which needs a bit of revamping and when I get some time I will go there and do justice.

I love people and have been responsible for getting together several groups such as class mates, seniors, orphaned kids and family
