Hey Joe,

Thanks for your response.

I particularly liked this:

something that David Gardner once said is to invest in a manner that honors your life’s efforts, because your personal capital is a result of the sum of all your hard work over the years and decades of your life.

And so I accept the risk that it is possible to lose some of my capital by investing in the stock market, but I do so in the best way I know how: ...built on a foundation of Foolish principles and the lessons I’ve learned from great investors such as David and Tom Gardner. And so I like the odds that I -- and the hundreds of thousands of Fools like me -- can achieve long-term investment success

Sounds good to me.

I've put in a (modest) limit order on AMZN, and just with doing that, am now paying more attention to it. We shall see what happens.

Best of the Day!
