I am pleased that at long last I am recognised by a comment in this paper.
This comes on top of a phone call to me today from a local firm thanking me for proof-reading a long document for them.
I must check whether my hat still fits (:o)

I forgot to say that this paper is written by people who call themselves journalists and I thought that the correct use of grammar and being able to spell correctly ought to have been part of their job description.
