    Long division. Couldn't do it at school, can't do it now :/

    I'm a bit unsure about the use of apostrophes to indicate the possessive.

    Is it Freds bike, or Fred's bike, or Freds' bike?
    I think it's the last one, but I don't know...

    The middle one. You use the last one if the person's name already has an S at the end e.g. Chris' bike.

    Thank you! I'm not about to try and explain long division though...

    OK, so Fred's bike, and Chris' bike. I understand.;)

    You can put Chris's as well, but it's not necessary to do so.

    The middle one indicates the bike belonging to Fred as in, "the bike of Fred"

    The last one indioates the bike belonging to more than one Fred as in, "the bike belonging to the Freds"

    Talking of things you don't know, but should....

    I have a few things I'd like to do learn before I die, a sort of list I keep (mentally) of things I'd like to know or know how to do... does anyone else have anything similar?

    My "to do" list includes
    1. Learn to speak Spanish
    2. Learn to ride a unicycle
    3. Learn to swim using the Butterfly stroke
    4. Learn semaphore
    5. Learn Sign Language
    6. Learn Morse Code

    My most recent thing crossed off my lists was "Learn to do the Rubik's Cube"...

    I've no idea why something ocurrs to me to put on my list, but it's fun crossing them off. ;)

    It's only just really ocurred to me that most of my list is to do with communicating... am I trying to tell myself something ??? :thumbsup:
