Why don't we have cool names for places like they do over there? What is a Druid's Heath, anyway?

Never a bad time to climb... unless the weather is really horrible, and then you climb inside!

A Druid is sort-of a woodland Cleric / Priest.
A Heath is a Prairie ( of sorts )

Druids Heath is a candy bar made from nature-y stuff.

Apo'strophe abu'se i's vexing. You'd think people would leave them off more than put them where they aren't suppo'sed to be. For the mo'st part, they're only u'sed for po's'se's'sion and contraction's. Why 'so many 'supposedly educated people put them after every other plural word i's idiotic.

I am joining the Apostrophe Protection Society.

However, this part does make sense:

Quote:
He pointed to the prohibitive cost of changing all signs to reintroduce the apostrophe and added that dropping the apostrophe would help emergency services who rely on computerised databases and satellite navigation to find addresses quicker.

It just makes me cringe when I see them used incorrectly.

If you ain't with us, then it's just bad news.
