The Punctuation Problem

Just a few weeks ago, I was doing my bit to protect the endangered apostrophe, and campaign against its misuse. It’s a saga that goes on and on. Some wonderful examples came to light today. We posted a picture on BBC Radio Berkshire’s Facebook page of a road sign on the Playhatch Road approaching Sonning Bridge. It said “Road Closed Due To It’s Structural Instability”. Grrr! But a sign in a cake shop absolutely appalled Nellie Williams who Facebooked thus: “Fresh Cream Gateaux’s - £4.50”. “This blew my mind,” she said.

    I really enjoyed reading this! I love to listen your show. I lately find many self improvement blogs around, like http://www.openmindedlifepath.com and http://www.pickthebrain.com.. maybe also a nice topic since I think it is great that you can find help on the internet and people can acutally get online help!!
