    Not sure if anyone knows of Reading Eggs - an online site for children to learn to read. I just got my subscription renewal email -

    Subject: Your childs subscription is due to expire in 7 days!
    Only thing worse than a misused apostrophe is a missing apostrophe!!! They're meant to be teaching children to read, SURELY that includes punctuation?!
