    Yes, I am, but I have no particular favourite- the best one is the one that is most suitable for the current context for me.

    Welcome to the forum.

    Note my corrections above. You must learn to spell "interest" and its variants.

    I don't have favourite idioms or sayings although "Practice makes perfect" is an apt one for this forum.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    I like this one:

    I'd rather have a bottle in front o' me than a frontal lobotomy.

    Practice starting every sentence with a capital letter and ending every sentence with a single punctuation mark.

    Yes, VERY important. If it doesn't start with a capital and end with a punctuation mark, it's not a sentence!

    I don't know if you were trying to be funny by posting a sentence with no capital letter or punctuation mark specifically to agree with a post saying that it's not a sentence without those two things, but that seems like a real waste of your time (and ours).

    In addition, if you agree with something another poster says, simply click on the "Like" button which appears in the bottom left-hand corner of their post.
