Logomania Do's and Don'ts

The Logomania column I write for students learning English often allows me to indulge a hobby: chasing up the history of common words and phrases in English. And sometimes it forces me to relearn my grammar too! This weeks column Do’s and Don’ts had me digging into "do's and don't's" and "dos and don'ts"

As far as Scoop and Au are concerned, there are only a handful of do's and don'ts:

Do feed the cats nice things like chicken every day.
Do cuddle and stroke cats whenever they demand it.
Do refresh the water bowls twice a day - and the run the taps when they ask.
Don't hog the sofa when a cat clearly needs to nap.
Don't pet dog friends!

And talking of dogs: there will be a Pet Adoption Programme by SPCA on 17 March 2007 at Bandar Utama. You can check info here http://doggie.fotopages.com/?source=30

Life with pets is wonderful, so if you have the time, the home, the money (for food and vet fees) and the inclination for a furry friend, please adopt a homeless pet. You won't regret it!
