    Aaargh!! Now you're just messing with me.

    Easiest grammar rule I ever learnt: mentally replace "its" with "it is". If your sentence still makes sense, use an apostrophe. If it doesn't, don't.

    The malaise has now spread to advertising agencies.

    With all the Draconian new laws for residential rental LLs, perhaps AirBnB would be better? To avoid any hassle in Hawke's Bay, consult Be My Hostess. Want a great looking concrete swimming pool in Hawke's Bay? Designer Pools will do the job for you!
