More proof I am a beginner  ...  :(

:)  I spend the better part of 4 hours saying there had to be a way 
to do this with grep but I couldn't get my attempts under 96  ... I 
stopped trying when I began seeing the leader board's very low 
scores and figured grep was not a correct solution path...  I keep 
mumbling REs REs - it must be an RE  :)

Maybe Yanick's "The Joy of Perl Code" is starting to affect me?

	Oh well  :)
