Pearl Roundabout

Those of you who pop by to visit me, know that I live in Bahrain and also know that it has been in the news recently. Things have been a bit fraught with protests focusing on the landmark, locally known as the Pearl Roundabout. Or as the world media called it 'Pearl Square'

However the Pearl Roundabout is no more. Sorry the 'after' photo isn't that clear but it was taken as I passed by on the highway yesterday.

What Spellchecker did they use!!!!!

Got a pack of laminating pouches at work and couldn't believe the warning on the side of the pack. I know my grammer isn't always perfect but all I could do was shake my head in disbelieve!!!!!
