    Re: Questions on Grammar and Punctuation!!!

    Welcome to the board, gsmbaloch.

    You need to start a new thread with your own title. Don't simply tag your post onto somebody else's discussion.

    We don't do your homework for you. You're expected to make your own attempts first.

    Re: help with grammar

    I have created a new thread for you, gsmbaloch.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
