    That's better.
    I'm not a teacher. I speak American English. I've tutored writing at the University of Southern Maine and have done a good deal of copy editing and writing, occasionally for publication.

    Re: behind

    Cubisto, I have edited three of your most recent posts to enlarge the font to make it readable on all devices. Before posting, please make sure you have used a readable font style and size.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
