    I can see where the commas and semicolons belong, but I won't do your work FOR YOU. I will be happy to check your work if you do two things:

    1. Put all the commas and semicolons where you think they belong.

    2. Put capital letters in ALL the right places.

    I do not read text-speak. Too hard on the old eyes.
