    Pro tip: buy a set of “Yaktrax” if you want to be able to walk on ice. They work!

    I had never heard of these....like chains for tires when driving in snow :wink: Might have to spring for a pair...just in case! Thanks!

    Before I bought a pair of boot spikes I navigated the snow/ice hills of my 'hood by clinging to fences and cars. So nice to be able to walk without being in fear of breaking something [while looking like a total fool ]!!

    @ToadstoolBetty That is a lot to deal with. I sympathize. About the cholesterol, yes it can be genetic and there is little to nothing you can do about it in some cases other than take medications to help lower it. My father has high cholesterol, genetic, and he refused to take medication for it until recently. He's very active and eats healthy and he's a thin man but nothing he did worked. I probably have high cholesterol, too, and should get it checked. Like your mom told your in-laws, my dad has told me several times that it's genetic. My mom has high blood pressure and tries to watch her salt intake and she takes medication for it. High cholesterol, high blood pressure, yes very scary...

    I really hope you get your health where you need and want it to be. You seem to very determined...
