Metamucil Shortage — I Have Switched To Straight Psyllium Husk Powder (Konsyl).

Yes, I know that Metamucil is supposed to be psyllium-based, BUT, I will be honest. They, i.e., Metamucil vs psyllium, FEEL different. Not sure they act the same either! That is crazy.

Dietary fiber & soluble fiber should be dietary fiber & soluble fiber. There should be no apparent difference. But, there seems to be. They feel different as you drink it. NO, it is NOT the sugar. SMILE. I get the ‘SUGAR FREE’ Metamucil. It could be the way Metamucil is ground. I do not know. I did a quick ‘Google’. Nothing jumped out at me.

I first started getting straight — generic — psyllium husk powder from Amazon. Then I saw the Konsyl at Walmart — which is where I have habitually bought my Metamucil for 20-years. So, kind of habit.

Don’t ask me why, BUT I am sure the Konsyl is MORE expensive. That was also the case with psyllium husk powder from Amazon! Does not make sense. Just letting you know.

Well, the way I look at it, the Konsyl is better than nothing. Just wanted to share with you. OK? SMILE.

NOW you may begin to appreciate why I, for one, was SO EXCITED (& animated) by C/2020 F3 (NEOWISE). Our 1st genuine naked-eye comet in 23-years!

It could be another 23 before we get another one — and, I, for one, will not be around for that.

Hopefully, it won’t be that long.

That is the glory of comets. We could discover a new one tonight that proves to be a great. With comets you never know.

I have started doing my own research — putting together an Excel spreadsheet. I am NOT seeing anything that looks promising. I will, of course, keep you posted.

Keep your toes crossed. We need all the luck we can muster,

Anthony Fauci Vindicates My Continuing Reluctance To Eat Out At Restaurants.

WOW. This made me feel better — & vindicated.

We haven’t eaten out at a restaurant since about March 12, 2020. Last time we got takeout was March 22 — somebody’s 14th birthday.

I really MISS eating out & takeout. I miss Chinese. I typically eat Chinese, from a restaurant, twice a month.

This is the longest, by far, I have ever been, in my whole life from eating at a restaurant.

I just don’t get a good feeling.

Glad that the doctor is backing me up.
