    NBR: The Apostrophe

    This is a pretty cool site with helpful tips, not limited to the use of the overly used apostrophe:

    P.S. Look for pages related to Bacon(the above mentions bacon!)!

    Good refresher, CB. Now I am worried that you should change your name to Calvin'sBike. I learned the difference between it's and its on this very forum, thanks to DeWayne Buratti.

    My all time book-length fave for such things is Eats, Shoots & Leaves: The Zero Tolerance Approach to Punctuation by Lynn Truss. Although you might expect anyone with a name like Truss to be fairly hardcore about everything, her book is screamingly funny.* She also writes books for children about punctuation and grammar.


    Your results may vary. If the idea of reading an entertaining book about punctuation seems pleasant, go for it. If not, fuggitadoudit.
