The ladies at the UCC church nearby need a lesson on when to use quotes and when to leave them alone. There have been quite a few interesting quotes on the announcement board ever since the church got one. (When the BIC in town also got an announcement board, I was afraid they'd get quote-happy people to update it, but not that I've noticed so far.)

Punctuation & grammar - it's not just for school!
