We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
Amazon has TP bundled with coffee and laughter is good.
Slidin' a Biden at least once a day is optimum.
Keto with almost vegan is good for regularity.
Grains are highly overrated but one size never fits all.
The FDA food pyramid is the sure fire way to destroy your health but that is a feature and not a bug to the controllers.

I have had a problem with constipation my entire life. Now with an enlarged prostrate it is even worse. My solution is I eat 1/2 cup of All Bran Buds every morning. It is 61% of the daily recommended fiber. It works and it is a normal bathroom result, that is I don't suddenly have diarrhea or go more than normal I simply have a bowel movement once a day or so without having to worry about it anymore.
Talking about a job with great benefits; When I was 25 and married with children we somehow got conned into attending one of those sales pitches in someone's home and the lady giving the pitch was quite well built. After the pitch she talked to us, my wife and I, and wanted me to become a "fitter" for bras she sold. Yes! I'm not kidding. The job was to assist the lady as she took off her blouse and bra and help her fit and adjust and try on the new bra. Yeah I was a little taken back and my wife was giving me the stink eye and I told the lady I had no experience doing such a thing and it would be awkward and wouldn't the women resent a man doing this. To which she replied that she would train me, yes meaning I would fit her bra until I could do it comfortably and professionally, and that no a lot of women preferred a male to a female. It was at this point my wife cut my bra fitting career short and we excused ourselves and went home. True story!
I've been crapping like a king for years, simply by taking one dose of sugar-free Metamucil every day. Works like a charm, and once a day is the fiber dose, not the laxative dose. In addition, it helps with your cholesterol count.
