I just looked up
Citizens Advice Bureau
- no apostrophe?!

And the spellcheck thinks
That Echinacea, the herb,
Should always be capped.

Crap. And I meant to check this very thing and forgot before sending off an important piece of information.

Curse them for being ungramatical.

Heh, well yeah, if they're going to ignore the rules of grammar they can't complain when people correct them :)

What you're in need of
Is the card index, in Bliss
It's the oracle.

I have no card index
No Bliss; I've been reduced to
Collins and Google :(

Sorry this is not a Haiku. :) I find it SO annoying when people forget or leave out apostrophes. Another example is Companies House.

Well, Companies House is OK, I'd have thought, as Companies is adjectival there. But Citizens Advice Bureau, hmmm, I am trying really hard to see Citizens Advice as an adjectival phrase, but it's DIFFICULT.
