RE: OT: bad week- need to play in dirt

I am so proud of you!!!  You'll love the Prius.  The more of us who purchase
"green" vehicles, the more the manufacturers will be forced to see us as a
force to market vehicles that are low/no polluters and encourage lower fuel
consumption at the same time!  Ask Eva about hers.  After having once for
several years, I'm still in love with mine!

Thanks for the kind thoughts.  I am doing much better after spending the 
end of last week outside in the garden and reorganizing my garage, and 
even buying a little garden/tool shed
to put all the miscellaneous tools and fertilizer, etc into. (the guy at 
OSH even delievered to my house when it wouldn't fit into my husbands 
Honda Element!-  I must have looked in desperate need!).
So, if the stupid Sac City police would ever call me back, I might 
actually be able to get my car fixed. In the meantime, I'm on the list 
for a new Prius.
