Yes but not once they get into double figures.

We have roads signs written in English around here telling drivers to drive on the right, trouble is they have put them on the right hadd side of the road where they dont do a lot of good :oops:
Yes, and the ones I've seen say 'Keep Your Right'. But in the Charente they obviously have an educated English speaker on the council. Appostrophe in the right place. :good: :lol:

There is a Corner's Pub in the local town, neither owned nor frequented by corners.

No, it says Keep Your Right, instead of the correct, Keep to Your Right. No appostrophe was needed or used. :)

I'm confused, why mention an apostrophe :?

Because you put one in your post when you replied to Spardo.

FFS was right, your quote of me above was in reference to the Charente sign in which there was a correctly placed apostrophe. B33jay for some reason misunderstood my reference to LD's post about Picardie. ;)
