    They are very good with hand controls. Just give them more than 2 days notice. Hertz uses the 90 degree hand control. I think National does as well. Avis uses the pull-push. Be aware of two problems...

    We are in agreement. I read what you wrote and acknowledged it. Did you miss this part I wrote? -> "Every time I've had blood work done... [sodium] is either inside the normal range or better."

    Your RO system may be making you sick

    We all know that we're supposed to drink lots of water. I installed an RO system so that I would always have a supply of high quality water to be well hydrated. I found the opposite to be true. I...
