Just because everyone does it doesn't make it right ...

I don't usually use this site for ranting, but oh, my pet peeve just about does me in this time of year! I'll make it short....

If you're unsure about how and when to use an apostrophe go here:

apostro.asp

or here:

Love,
The McAustins

or I could have written:
Love from the McAustin's house to yours

BUT NEVER:
Love,
The McAustin's

Happy Grammar Thursday!

Can we have a lesson on commas too? I never know when to use one.

I'm bad about when to use semicolons, so most often I just don't. :) Thanks for the lesson. :)

I'm with you. I am also being very careful here about my punctuation.

Love,
