    Spell Check!!! I used to be really good at

    spelling, that was before blackberry, smart phones and androids. But now I spell everything wrong on purpose jus because I know Spell Check would sort it all out for me. You should have seen this post without all the corrections. Haha

    i can spell really well, i just make so many typos that sometimes people do not believe me.  there are a few words that flummox me to spell, but by and large it is just finger errors that get me.

    I am good with numbers and bad with letters. I was not always like this tho. In grade school I came in either first or second in all the school spelling bees.They always included grades 1 thru 5. Usually it came down to me and my older sister.

    Spelling Bees
