His office manager will proofread everything. Ok, but seriously, welcome to the forum! My spelling was horrible in high school, it's passable now. Learn all you can, when you can and you'll be fine.

I recall you mentioned you had an accident that affects your typing. What type of device are you using to post to CT?

Heh. What I meant was if you are using a smart phone you can use the Swype feature to type, rather than one letter at a time. You only need to be close and the program can figure out what word you want to type.
