but it's always been hard to find Tie Dye shirts in larger sizes so a while back I got a wild hair and decided to start making my own Tie Dye Trucker Shirts. But after one night of dying (no pun intended) My wife Terrie stepped in and saved me from myself and made some pretty awesome shirts. Mine were O.k. But I had to face the fact that Terries Tie Dye shirts (and some dresses she made) just look awesome.
The Shirt above Terrie made for me and we call it the "Dream Catcher"
My original plan was based around those orange and red safety shirts that a lot of places are requiring us to wear these days Heres a batch Le Artist Terrie made.
anyone that would like a Tie Dye Trucker Safety Shirt hand made by Terrie click Here and Stay tuned for whatever we think of next!!!

Standing in line at the truckstop I noticed a guy buying one of those cheap keychain tools they sell for impulse spenders. I told him "I've never had any luck with those lasting long enough to make them worth the money." He laughed and said "I had my last one for over a year." Turns out he's one of the mechanics that works at the shop next door. That was enough for me I told the lady at the counter I wanted one too. Turns out the mechanic got the last one. I remembered the name of the company though. They're called Swiss Tech. While ordering myself one thought I'd post a link to Amazon where I bought mine.
Eat flaxseed Driver, Improve memory, get omega 3's, fiber, and May help fight your neurapathy too!!!
Flaxseed is high in the Omega 3 Alphja-Lipoic Acid in fact it is by far the best plant based source of ALA. According to Webmd at www.webmd.com "Alpha-lipoic acid is used for diabetes and nerve-related symptoms of diabetes including burning, pain, and numbness in the legs and arms. High doses of alpha-lipoic acid are approved in Germany for the treatment of these symptoms." Not only is flaxseed high in omega 3's but it is also full of soluble fiber something that helps our bodies lower cholesterol.
Back in the 80's there was this super smart guy that did a study and found flax seed oil helped with depression. I found this at www.healthy.net "Dr. Donald O. Rudin, Director of the Department of Molecular Biology at Eastern Pennsylvania Psychiatric Institute found that within two hours, patients who had various mental disorders experienced improved mood and their depression lifted with flax seed oil."
So, In the morning I've been grinding up a couple tablespoons of Bobs Red Mill flaxseed and adding it to my granola or sometimes I just put it in a little bowl with some milk and eat it straight. It has a nutty flavor and reminds me of the wheatgerm my great grandma Rosa Cooper used to give me when I was a wee lad. Make sure you grind the seeds up first using a coffee grinder though, otherwise most of them will pass through withought giving the nutritious goodness locked inside!!!
