my grammar could hit the target from that distance

The revolution has begun. No longer will we put up with dodgy speeling, misplaced apostrophes' or improper; punctuation? P.S. pointing out bad grammar in postings is banned. To justify this I'm applying a form of grammatical 'absolute privilege', as the public interest in publishing mistakes far outweighs the cost to the public of making further mistakes. Call me a hypocrite if you will, but it works in Westminster.

Neon ridiculous

It seems to be much easier to find apostrophes in the wrong place (or not there at all), than it is to find spelling mistakes and the like. I heard a rumour that somewhere around Albany Road there's a sign saying "Chef wanted: apple within" or something similar. Twenty I-Spy points for a photo of that one.

#10 St Mary's Street (or is it St. Mary Street?), Cardiff. You'd think if you were making something in neon you might get it right.

According to the Oxford Companion to the English language, all these uses of the apostrophe are standard:


with letters
dot your i's and cross your t's

do's and don'ts


family names
the Jones's
