Sorry I'm so late in replying to Marge's post.  (I've been busy doing Master 
Gardener volunteer hours.)  My attitude toward the whole thing is, "I drive 
on the highway."  I came to feel that way after I got an untreatable cancer 8 
year after getting radiation therapy to cure my breast cancer.  It's now been 
15 years since the first surgery and 8 years since the second.  I suppose 
either could return, but (and this is my point) I drive on the highway 
everyday and probably stand a greater chance of dying there.  I don't 
unnecessarily endanger my life, but I am sure as the devil not going to waste 
a minute of it being afraid of something I can't do anything about in the 
first place!

BTW, I paid $1.61+ for regular gas on Friday.
