    I saw 3 mistakes in 1 book I'm reading

    'Ivy gave me a wide birth.' this made me giggle

    'Appologize' yes it is American so I can deal with the z but the pp?

    There was another but I can't think of it right now

    Just popping back to this thread after quite a while to report that at a Mantra Hotel in Melbourne recently, I picked up the breakfast menu (the one you hang on your door knob for room service delivery), and read that I could order 'Eggs Anyway'.

    As in, 'well, there's nothing good on this breakfast menu, so I guess I'll just order eggs anyway'? Brilliant!

    In another thread "you have to way up what's best for you and your children"
    My gosh I hope that is sleep deprivation or some sort of brain fart with that poster
