Not my type

There's something you should know about TypingService.org

They're not very good at what they do.


For example, if I wanted them to carry out some retyping, I don't think I'd ask them for any additianal editing.

And, although it's very nice to be complemented, I'd much prefer free proofreading.


They're right about one thing though. My dollar does deserve high quality.

That's why I'll be using someone else.

By the way, I thought I'd visit the Meet Our Team page but I didn't meet anyone there.

Just a load of copy obviously written entirely for SEO purposes.

Oh, and this.


Yep. Pretty avarage typing.

Rambling sentence

We need to put a stop to this type of hunting.


And by that I mean a full stop.

30 is the new 20

If only Nottingham City Council employees had 20/20 vision.

They may have spotted a certain issue when they were putting up these road signs at the bottom of Middledale Road in Carlton.

Punch the baby

As Hillary Clinton announces her campaign to become the Democratic Party's 2016 nominee for President, her public relations people reveal her darker side.


Many anti-abortionists believe this is actually close to the truth.

Me? I think she's probably misspoken again.

Sale sale

The Sainsbury's store in Sale is having a sale.

Well, not so much of a sale, actually.

But there's no denying the original price has been completely slashed.

Predict-ive text Part 2

We've had a similar one before from Predict.

Prefer this by text?


I don't actually care how you send it. I just want to be able to read it.

Harder than ever

The Large Hadron Collider has been out of the news for a couple of years while it's been shut down and upgraded.

But now it's back with double its previous capacity.

And with it, the same old headlines from BBC News which, clearly, hasn't matched the upgrade to its spell-check system.

Signs of more activity

Palo Alto High School (Paly to its friends, apparently) was clearly not happy with the replacement parking sign which we talked about last week.

I said at the time that I thought it represented a bit of a cop-out showing, as it did, the letters A.P. instead of Assistant Principal or, in reality, Assisant Principal.

So, they've replaced the replacement with yet another sign with the full, corrected, title.


Or should I say signs?

Because there were, apparently, no less than three incorrect signs originally, followed by another three signs to replace the first three. And now a further three to replace those.

What? Does it really take three signs to show one parking space? Just how big is the Assistant Principal's car?

Clearly not as big as the AP's ego.

Counting the cost

Here in the UK we're in the middle of an election campaign during which no photo opportunities are missed or wasted.

Since, as political commentator Paul Begala once said, 'Politics is show business for ugly people', the results of such opportunities can be pretty horrific.

Few are in Hillary Clinton's league, however, when it comes to photographic gaffes.

Signs of activity

We're going back to Palo Alto, CA today. More specifically, we're joining Jon C in the car park of the rather prestigious Palo Alto High School.

There's been a bit of a ruckus over the sign for the Assistant Principal's parking space.

Surprisingly, the sign was up for a week or so before the error was noticed by someone. It's not clear whether that person was a member of the English teaching staff.

I have to say though that the replacement sign represents a bit of a cop out.
