Meanwhile a female Remainer appeared on "good morning Britain" tv show naked, to expose the truth as she put it.  You get some really daft Remainers. Hope out admin staff are not thinking of participating in such stunts.

On second thoughts, my stuff is maybe not composite but hard wearing sort of rutted stuff. I mean it has indentations along the surface. Popular for Tavernas decks and does not seem to warp. It was quite expensive material however.

From my experiences, I would agree with Sam about the warping issue.  I used the composite decking for a much smaller project - to make a cover for my well to replace the old rusted (& very heavy) metal one.  After three months in use it was warping and I had to add extra diagonal bracing lengths on the underside.

I know there are two sizes of the decking and I used the thinner one but I have seen a number of places around here that have used the thicker one for fencing and infill on gates - in pretty much all cases there has been warping after a summer or two.  That said, used as decking, they would have much more support / bracing and thus hopefully the warping could be reduced.

Well done, I tried this 2 years ago and lost some 16 kilos, it didn't reverse my T2 but I managed to reduce my meds by 50%. Apparently having had T2 for several  years the weight loss is not as effective and works mostly in recently diagnosed T2. I've slipped a lot since then and put back half the weight but my HbA1c is still better than it was. Originally did Michael Moseley's Blood Sugar Diet and about to do it again. It will never get me down to your level but hopefully will help to stave off some adverse effects.
 Having said that I believe that such quick and significant weight loss can lead to an increased risk of Retinopathy and I was diagnosed with such when I lost my weight which has now progressed to Maculopathy but hopefully keeping my HbA1c low enough will help towards slowing any further progress!

Still glad I lost the weight and improved my blood sugar readings though!

Maggy, Look up, cheer up, speak up and drink up -  only 45 days to a clean Brexit (hopefully) at which time you could sit alongside me and share a wee cocktail with 2 straws in Archaravie?

The joiner place in Perithia obtained  composit decking for me. I don't know where he obtained it but you could ask him as to his source.  As it happened I never used the wood and stored it away. You could take a piece and see what you make of it?

Got latest results today 2 years on. Hba1c 35, liver function back to normal. No drugs since  late 2016. Cheapest approach and for many the most successful. When we do finally move to Corfu we should save a few EUR on medicines.
