Hello EnglishBob, nice to hear you're 'regular' not such a big deal for you at 58, but as you near 70 you'll find it's a nice thing and gives you something to brag about when you meet other guys for morning coffee to discuss the sports pages in the day's paper.

Here in Canada a fiber product, Metamucil, is called "the old people's friend," unless you're over 95 that is and then pneumonia is generally considered, "the old people's friend."

Congratulations on your regular status.
