On cycling forums, pedal and peddle. It makes me laugh sometimes "I had to peddle really hard to make it to the top". Wow! You can ride a bike up a hill while hard selling lots of things to passers by!

I also saw, at a car boot sale last November, 'Get Your Christma's Decorations Here' Priceless.

Apostrophes - always a source of trouble, and likely to lead to impatient responses it seems. Wink

Here's a little game on the BBC website to test your understanding of apostrophes. At least, I think that's what it does - I lost interest just trying to get to the start of the game, what with all the instructions and explanations of how to play!

No, you've got it all wrong. He's obviously a door-to-door bicycle salesman who got to the top of his profession by sheer hard work. It makes perfect sense... Wink

it'smore a test of understanding their explanation.

I gave up when I shortened "it is not" to "it's not" and it told me I was wrong, should have been "it isn't" Tongue

I thought my nose was bleeding but it'ss not.....

My father told me that only greengrocer's are allowed to use an apostrophe to denote a plural.
