Hi,

Just 10 days before June is over, I hope it'll be here as expected. It's been too long.

hi everyone, I'm new member and I'm looking these conversations writing some where ? I want to fallow them, because i can't catch up , maybe I couldn't see them. If there is no  i can listen again. (sorry about my english , I hope I could explain what I want) thanks for everything, very very good website, I'm sure I'll improve my english here.

Hi hattie,
