  1. Five of your sentences are punctuated correctly. :-)

    However, please look again at sentences 2, 5, and 7.

  2. 1. change didi to did
    2. the second comma should be a semicolon to avoid a run-on sentence.
    3. & 4. = OK
    5. Goerge should be George but the third comma should be a semicolon, for the same reason as above.
    6. is OK
    7. not the colon: but semicolon ;
    8. good
