  1. Microsoft Word doesn’t like it when I use apostrophes. It doesn’t like it when I don’t. I can’t win. I like apostrophes – as long as they are used properly. Maybe life would be easier without them. Their use is certainly in decline. Pity: I think they raise us above the cave man. Lot of cave men where I work. Wouldn’t know an apostrophe if it kicked them in the bollocks. Is this a lament? I suspect so.
