I think politics is far easier than punctuation! Lets get back on track!
Ps I think a comma is a butterfly! 🤯

Apostrophes and plurals are not related!

If you're talking about things belonging to a plural, then the apostrophe is there just because of the possession - the plural is incidental.

boy
boys
boy's pizza (all to himself)
boy's pizzas (he's hungry!)
boys' pizza (they're sharing it!)
boys' pizzas (a few between them)

Exception to the rule: Acronyms or letters might have apostrophes in plurals, simply because otherwise they might be unclear: -

ADR's or ADRs because ADRS might suggest 1 four letter acronym, where the "S" stands for something other than plural..

4 a's is clearer than 4 as .

Mr T - thanks for letting me get that out!

Bianca. Glad you enjoyed it. However it's as clear as mud to me no matter what those who are experts at this say.

Mind you I can fit a big kitchen in 2 days flat.

...But, Tom, apostrophes are so much smaller and quicker than kitchens!

Seriously, thank Mickey that we can all do different things. Maybe, I could fit a kitchen in 2 years flat?!

I think you might be confusing "no one" and "I"!

I can still remember the four lessons at Primary School in 1978 when we were taught about apostrophes. They make compete and utter sense to me. Just proving they need to be taught, properly, at the right stage of education. Is this still taught in Primary school? I could not however fit a kitchen in ten years. Nor can I work by bloody central heating. See other thread 🙄

Unplug the Hive unit where it goes into the router. Then turn the boiler off and reboot everything.

If the Hive is feeding from WiFi turn the main router off.
