i can't spell.  1st down in the spelling bee.  no spell checker.  no writing.

That's because it isn't. No one ever figured out how it should be spelt  :-D

I consider myself a good speller, when spell check knows what I'm trying to spell.   It is those words that spell check can't identify that give me heartburn.  :roll:


I can blow up a spellchecker.......itll tell me to give up it just aint workin no more........haha
To bee or not to bee that is the question I wake up to answer that every morning...
