Dear Internet..

I know I've said this before, I vaguely remember bringing it up, but it was a long time ago and you obviously didn't listen, so...

You don't need to include an apostrophe every time you write a word that ends in 's'! Ok. If it is a plural, as many s ending words are, an apostrophe is unnecessary, and in fact inaccurate. For example the sentence "the dogs were barking" doesn't need one.

So when do you use the apostrophe? Well if you were to write " the dog's barking was loud" then it is appropriate to use one, as it signifies ownership. See? Easy. At least it should be.

Another reason to use the apostrophe is for contractions, ie don't won't isn't etc. I can't think of one that ends in 's' so I don't know if this counts, but you know how to use them now. If you don't then study this please before getting back out there and writing your comments about dragon's and handmaid's because I don't want to see this again. And I have more lessons coming soon so get this one learned, please.

Thank you.

All over again.

I've been somewhat silent of late, going back to the era of forgetting I even have one of these blog things. Truth is, I just don't know what to write, unless I just grumble about stuff, and you know how I do hate to grumble.

What the hell. I need to move again, second time this year, third time in the last year (if you don't count a bunch of mini moves) and the 4th or 5th time in a year and a bit. I'm kind of tired of it.

Haven't done anything wrong this time, or even been accused of it, they're just renovating the building.

Er... know of a place?
