    Yes, but it's still not clear. Could you help me please?
    Please follow the rules of written English:

    - Start every sentence with a capital letter.
    - Always capitalise the word "I".
    - End every sentence with a single punctuation mark.
    - Do not put a space before a comma, full stop, question mark or exclamation mark.
    - Always put a space after a comma, full stop, question mark or exclamation mark.

    Check your spellings before you post.
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.
