Oh, Dilsia--it wasn't painful. smile--It was habit, formed by my being a mother and correcting my children as they grew up, and then working in an ESL program. But I don't like to correct people unless I'm asked. You not only asked, but you went and took some classes. Except when you get upset and hurried, your written English is perfect, and if I read it now I would nevet know that English isn't your native language. Even after taking Spanish for several years, I woldn't be able to write it, and certainly not to speak it, anywhere near as well as you do English. smile Cindy (BTW, I've decided to drop the "R" since the other Cindy doesn't seem to post that much and hopefully she won't receive criticisms. Lissi's real name, I think, is also Cindy, but she was kind enough to use a nickname, which is so much prettier, I think, so we woldn't be confused. smile Cindy --- "Dilsia A.
