Re: OT - Maplesyrup - links

Thanks Shirl, A car lift is a cool idea. Certainly could reduce the footprint of some of the large residential garages one sees.


At beachfront properties on the the shores of Lake Ontario there were often similar boat lifts and although they were mostly manually operated they served the purpose of keeping boats safe above the waves from storms.


I can see all sort of uses for such lifts- giving wheelchair access to various levels of tourist spots, double height mini storage buildings etc.




Diagnosed as type 2 in 2005 with an A1c of 9.1

Started with metformin and a low dose of an ARB for blood pressure. Added a sulfonylurea (a med that helps my pancreas produce my own insulin) Also a low dose of Crestor to lower my cholesterol.
After 7 years I could no longer tolerate metformin so am doing my best to keep control with a max dose of the sulfonylurea and lots of walking, some swimming.
