Those quotes do not look like the standard double quote. I copied your code into Visual Studio, and it immediately complained about those quotes. I replaced them with a standard double quote, and it worked fine.

It looks like you are using the wrong character for your quotes around rocks! Did you just cut and paste from the task instructions?

Happy coding,

Thanx Guys,

Can't believe this was holding me back. Many thanx.
