Did my eyes deceive me? I was in Tesco this morning and noticed that the Penicuik Adervertiser's headline (in great big muckle letters) said something about "Revamed Sainsbury's".

I remember a couple of years ago when a proof copy one of our publications came back from the printers and I pored over it. There were a couple of very minor errors but nothing much to worry about. I passed it up to my boss and he came back to point out that the word "Statistics" (in big letters) on the front page had been miss-spelt Embarassed

Sorry to pour cold water, Admin, but there ain't no such thing as the Penicuik Advertiser; what you saw was 'The Advertiser', previously known as 'The Midlothian Advertiser'.
Also I think you've missed a second typo. I haven't seen it but I think they managed to get 'Sainsbury's' wrong as well. That'll make them popular.

It does seem like strange wording.

However this isn't strange - I really like these smilies, Anona, and I wanted to say Happy Christmas to everyone.

santa Indeed it is a jolly time of year Smile However, I'll be glad when I go on holiday a week on Friday. My boss has been on leave looking after his wife who had to have an operation. In that time I have had to put the finishing touches to two publications with a third due a week on Tuesday. Also, there was a big meeting that we hold once in a blue moon and I had to record and write up the minutes. Phew! Anyway, my boss is back I've managed to get Monday off so that the pressies can be wrapped up Very Happy rendeer A Merry Christmas to you, Anona and everyone else when it comes santa drunken cheers
