Lol , I have always wondered why people miss words out on signs. Mention poster, and the grammer goes out the window!
All the best,

Lucky I didn't say anything about that! I was tempted... But then I don't pretend I can spell or grasp the English language! Most foreigners I have met are much more competent than me Something to do with our schools I'm sure.
