MacARTHUR'S PARK ( Brand New Lyrics)
Look to left field and outside the box for this one - Remember that long, dramatic and classic song by the great songwriter, Jimmy Webb, from the 60's, called MacArthur's Park? Well I think most people will agree that the tune is GREAT but the lyrics are... well... at the very least, hard to make sense of. So I'm writing new lyrics.

The answer to, and winner (if any) for, our last contest question of:
Architecture question this time. This world class hotel built a tricycle garage. Name it and tell me why it did that.
The Plaza Hotel in NYC. They did it to celebrate their most important young guest, Kay Thompson's character and enfant terrible, "Eloise"

Now on to a new Q.: Win a…Continue
