I only looked at the home page and found two errors that are very common and drive me nuts. " Hey all you Escape owner's and wannabe's..." Why people add apostrophes to plurals is beyond me.

Dave "You da Man!" My brother's main goal on the trip to pick up the trailer is our visit to the Goosenecks since I emailed him a copy of your great photo

Grammer, punctuation and spelling don't drive me nuts so much as do failure to employe long-winded thought separation's by paragraph. At least no one's been shouting at us with all caps.

I follow Analytical Grammar/Grammar Planet on facebook. They are always referring to the never ending signs that have an apostrophe s where it's simply a plural. Speaking of it's there's a place on the Escape website with an it's which should be its.

No if only the kids in sixth grade would learn it correctly, but then I wonder how well the teachers know their (there, they're) grammar

Back to Dave's photo, congrats for getting on the Escape homepage. Alf will be disappointed that his white and gold combo photo is now history.

Speaking of teachers, my grade seven teacher at Garfield Elementary in Maywood, Ill. taught our class that there were eleven provinces in Canada.

I didn't even notice spelling or grammatical errors... I've given up on those.

On the other hand, the non-working trailer model pages are a real business problem, which I hope has been reported to Escape staff. Not only are the tabs broken, but the brochure links just lead back to the same model page.

Curiosity is killing me... what was the 11th province supposed to be? Labrador (incorrectly separate from Newfoundland)? One of the territories (but then what about the other one)?

I opened just the image in a separate browser tab, and it is not distorted... so the problem is in the web page, not the image file which is loaded on the server.

The image is also quite large, and free of any overlaid text, so follow that link and open just image if you want to see David's very nice photo.

If you look really closely you can see Mary waving in the bedroom window...oh wait, no, she was asleep

It really is a fabulous photo......love it! I make so many errors myself I don't really have the right to speak up, but it does curl my toes when people insist on using "utilize" instead of use...... or something like this " I'll have 3 metres of this fabrication ..instead of just fabric.........

Definitely a great picture, worthy of being seen over and over again, even with stretched out grammar lessons.

Myron, we were just in Edgewood, that's where our friend who passed away lived. Don't suppose you have any involvement with the Masons there? He was active in them among many other things.

I don't recall. I never was a good student.
