I am diligent on striping meta data on images.. but google is getting better, and still caches things. The tracking the other way is also interesting… not had any visits from Perth, Tel Aviv or Moncton before, IP’s browsers, search engines…

Good that you're across it, some people are totally unaware that some of the images they put up are searchable, hence the friendly warning.

I prefer a shower, I worry with a tub/shower there is somebody with a big knife hiding behind the curtain.

I think you're staying in the wrong sort of hotel.

I do love it when people give me an excuse to post video clips. The bellboy has constantly been reminded to deliver a newspaper to the guest's room.

I just make sure to keep looking on the other side of the curtain.

I haven't had a bath since I moved to the USA. The houses in our price bracket have small bath tubs (small by UK standard so not suitable for a US adult).

Our master suite has a walk in shower unit, which is also great for getting the dogs in (no need to break your back lifting a 110lb dog into a bathtub).

I do miss relaxing in a bathtub.

How about a tin bath and watering can on the front area of the trailer or does that only apply to certain Southern states?

I don’t know about southern states, but when he visited the Soviet Union, Donald Trump just sat on the bed, and no watering can was required.

The answer I get most often when I ask people if they're satisfied with a tub shower or prefer a stand alone shower is "Who the hell are you and how did you get in here?"

I had imagined, perhaps wrongly, that the shower would be delivered with him lying down.

Please do not turn this into yet another political thread. Please use the existing thread in TIO. Thank you.

We have one of these (stock photo from Wayfair used) at the lake. No shower curtain issues. But it’s only good for 3 months a year.

Anyone have a walk-in bathtub ? Just how effective are they in not leaking water?
