Hey Edward,

Take a look at the final bracket of your code. Hope that helps!

It looks like the final brace is facing the wrong way. It 's another open brace ( { ), but it should be a closing brace instead ( } ).

yes Bummer! There was an error with your code: syntaxError: parse error

YES, I see that now thanks.

well crap! still syntax error.

I got it! thanks you guys. I had an extra curly bracket in the code . Took it out and it worked.
