Its the former English teacher in me , but I get really fed up with the confusion a lot of posters on WH make between "you're", meaning you are, and "your", meaning belonging to you.
So here's an easy way of remembering......


"The difference between feeling your nuts, and feeling you're nuts"

put it like that and you'll never forget!

Is there an easy way of remembering when to use its and it's...lol and their and there as another example..or to and too
My English teacher told me that I'd never pass the 'H' grade exam and he certainly didn't give us any easy ways of remembering when where and how to use or not to use the apostrophe.[he wisny much good at helping with spelling either!!]

Kind regards

it's the grumpy old bloke in you. I had a cv came through on email the other day and the covering letter was in text speak with a preponderance of unnecessary punctuation. I believe it's called progress.
