Had x rays resulting in no serious signs of any old guy stuff. Finally the doctor told me not to take any more Lipitor. After about two months all of my joint and fatigue symptoms had gone away. IT WAS THE DAMNED LIPITOR!!!

Seems that what I was experiencing was all side-effects of Lipitor.

Stay away from that stuff.
I was taking Lipitor a few years ago and kept feeling sudden sharp pains. It would be in one shoulder for a minute or so and then stop. Then it would happen somewhere else. Each time, I thought it was symptoms of a heart attack.

I told my friend about it and she asked if I was taking Lipitor. She told me to quit taking it. After that everything was fine.

All of the cholesterol drugs I know of will have sever side effects, no way will I take them again. I take an aspirin everyday which does as much good as that garbage and no side effects.

If the incoming line in to your house is an old galvanized line, it is likely the cause. They get plugged up all the time.

Do a google on pros and cons of Lipitor, it will open your eyes. I refuse to take it, chances are your doctor will argue that the benefits out weight the side effects, do the reading you will see that it does not.

Hi Syd...did you survive that torrential rain we had this afternoon? We got pounded here for hours.

Managed to get some more of the plumbing done today.

When I was installing the vessel sink in the ensuite, the drain - quite naturally - went right through the middle of the drawer in the antique vanity.

So, in order to keep the drawer useful, meaning making it openable, I took a notch out of the back of the drawer and added some pieces of cedar alongside the cut to stiffen it back up again.

Also added some extension lines for the laundry tub - yet to be purchased - in the utility room.

The vessel sink is now installed. The drain got hooked up this afternoon with the usual amount of fuss and bother.

I had to devise some sort of mount for the faucet, as it is the type which would normally mount flush with the surface. But as the sink itself is raised nearly 7", the faucet needed the same treatment.

I found one piece of Zebrawood which just fit the bill to make a suitable stand. It doesn't have any finish on it yet, so I hope to get started on that tomorrow.

Now THAT right there is one helluva good idea. All of the vessel-sinks I've been involved in have always just deleted the the possibility of a drawer in that location and have resorted to just a drawer-front as is typical of any other (in cabinet) sink. Good one Keith!

I don't want to turn this thread into another episode of "The Doctors" but if this helps someone then so-be-it.

At first when I complained of being stiff and lacking mobility and range my doctor passed it off as; "You're not getting any younger Bud". But something just didn't ring-home with me. I was in too good of shape overall and all of his xrays and blood tests weren't coming up with anything other than lining his pockets. I don't understand why - if he knew of the side effects - he didn't hit on the real problem sooner. Just keep in mind...doctors receive kick-backs from pharmaceutical companies for prescribing their drugs. I'm sure "ongoing maintenance drugs" are a big winner for those guys. There are websites that list doctors taking kickbacks from drug companies. How unethical can they get?

I must have been moaning and groaning (a lot) and didn't realize it until my wife began to criticize me for my "bad acting". Hell I wasn't acting, I was hurtin'. I tried to explain to her that I didn't know how I got "so old so fast". She just didn't get it. I feel great now, just waiting for the other shoe to drop.

The only other thing I had to make sure of was that the supply lines were kept well back. Remember that I don't have the hot/cold lines buried in the wall here, they were added after the fact.

Not the best pic, but you get the idea.
