Hi Toney, smile..because of you, I always keep an eye out for opportunities for our Guyanese buddies. When I saw this, I thought, "Hmm, I wonder if he would be interested?"
So I am glad that you are and I hope all our Guyanese buddies will take the opportunity to participate. You never know, you may win, and, it is a great way to practice for the CXC English exam short story coming up in May 2009.
