OK. Just remember you don't spell as we in the USA.
I really thought you were putting me down for playing the stock market.
I admit, I don't spell the best. I have a spelling dictionary, and a spelling machine. No 2 son had a Huntley City Picnic to sell honey and the machine is lost. On the first year at the picnic, he made $400, the last 3 years only about $100. The economy is way down.
I wish we had a spelling correction on this BB, for bad spellers like me. It is a wonderful BB and great people on it.
As for grammer, I admit I need improvement and I try to watch it. Mike tells me how bad I am, all the time. What a joke, he is talking the cat in English, Spanish, Japaness, Italian and Franch, and the cat acts like she understands it.???
You must remember I am a retired electrian, a dirty construction worker. Some persons, on the BB compared me with the Kennedies. No way. When I was 10, mom and dad split. I worked my way through high school and barely graduated. I was 2nd from the lowest and the lowest became a high school principle. He was lucky, there was money to send him to college. Everyone wanted me to go to college, but I had to work to feed my mother and sisters. My mother cashed my paycheck checks for the first 3 and one half years.
I went to college at night school for over 20 years. It is not the same. My education is really different. I studied what I needed at the time. Everything from knife throwing to welding, real estate management and the stock market. I even took army mail courses on anything they had to offer.
Thank you for the explanation. Keep up the good work. I really enjoy checking in on you every fue days. cya
