I just placed my order with Duluth Trading Co.

I use to hate ordering cloths online, but as I get older I hate going out shopping for them now, lol...

They seem to have a lot of nice items. Will start with the longtail t-shirts and go from there.

My knees in my pants always wear through. I just bought some Dickies DOUBLE KNEE black pants. YEAH BABY. I use a large moving blanket folded up for kneeling on. When I need to lay down, I unfold it!

Let us know how them Dickie pants work out for you. Knee's wear out fast for me too. Been looking at some different pants too.
Don't care to spend a lot on clothes as they never last forever, unlike a good tool. :)

Guess if a guy pays more for clothes that last longer then it all the same in the end, except you may end up with more comfortable clothes to start with.

I pay $27.00 a week for uniform rental. It's nice not to have to wash them. However that's  $1,400.00 a year. It is a write off.

I am 74 years old and 12 years ago had serious bursitis in my knees, plus other ailments like swollen prostate, and general poor health.
 Then I started taking pro-biotics including Kombucha. After a few months, my health improved and I could kneal without pain.
 I started home brew of Kombucha, costs less the $1 a week. Now my triglicerides and cholesterol are good and I feal pretty good.
 I plan to work till I'm 80.
  You can buy Kombucha at Wegmans or a heath food store, tastes like ginger ale, but it is watered down.
  If anyone want's the brew recipy, just ask.

I credit the Kombucha more as it actually improves functions like the immune system, circulation, uptake of nutrients and reduced cellular aging. Go to web site www.happyherbalist.com
for the recepy. Some comments.
 1) I boil my sugar with the tea to kill germs.
 2) after every re-brew, I clean everything including the culture with vinegar, will not kill the Kombuche bacteria, but everything else.
 3) I only use domestic orange Peco teas as I once had pesticides in an imported tea that destroyed my culture.
 4) I add about 10 tablespoons of vinegar to each brew to kill germs.
 5) If the culture will not turn white after a few days with new,heathy growth, but turns black and smells bad, it is bad,throw everything out and start over.
 6) should be fuuly fermented in 7- 10 days, per Cornell university study, ideal temperature for growth is 80 degrees, I keep a heating pad under my large brewing vessel and keep a cloth on top
     to keep flies out.
 You can buy the tea at Wegmans $ 3.49 a bottle, tastes like ginger ale, but watered down.
 I mix my brew with apple juice as it is rather "strong".
 Per a doctor report, very few people are allergic to Kombucha, but some people cannot ingest an acidic drink.
 It takes two to three months to get dramatic results, like increased energy, improved immune system, lower cholesteral, improved circulation, etc.
 It also improves your sex life!
 More later.

 Update
 The Cornell U study was extensive, they tested over 1000 home brews across the USA
 Chemical analysis confirmed the "normal" organic acid content known to improve the body functions. They also confimed less than
 .4 % alcohol,although if the brew is left in a sealed container at room temperature, it's alcohol content will rise.
 Also, it is MY opinion that as long as you keep the body healthy with good stuff like this you will probably not suffer from serious health
 problems.

No, the capsules are not good, the same as Kombucha tea bags, or any pasteurized thing like "Wonder tea"
 Only the GT's raw, organic Kombucha will do and perhaps the Russian variant "Kvass". The capsules have bacteria in them, but no organic acids.
 Historically, in the fiftees, the FDA tried to ban it claiming it is a drug, buit it isn't, it is a food and not taxed.
 Most doctors do not like it as it cuts into their drug kickbacks, same is true for medical associations, they are in bed with the
 drug industry.

To answer your original question, most of my business is repair. Dealing with appliance sales is not that profitable, hard on the body
and takes more resources.
