A Lancashire hotch potch
In July The Rossendale free Press found out about the magic of autocorrect when its page seven lead about flooding appeared both in print and online with a stream of bizarre pseudonyms replacing village names.
It looks like the spellcheck system found Lancashire place names like Rawtenstall, Crawshawbooth, Bacup and Ramsbottom a little too difficult to deal with...
...so it inserted more computer-friendly words like Ratchets, Crushability, Barcus and Ramsgate.

Peterborough exhibition ‘The Big Picture’ tells the tales of the lives of people with Down Syndrome.
But this spectacular work from local photographer Terry Harris is much more than a story only of Peterborough.
Since launching the project a year ago snapshots telling the life of people with Down Syndrome across the world have flooded in, from everywhere from America and Australia to Puerto Rico, Uganda and South Korea.
Visitors to the three-month exhibition at Peterborough Garden Park will see a multitude of faces of those people, playing, smiling and laughing, from across the globe.
Hanging on the walls are colourful mosaics, created from thousands of messages and news snippets about Down Syndrome.
And elsewhere are photographs of the many celebrities who lending their support: actors, musicians, athletes and footballers, each holding a picture of the little girl who symbolises the exhibition.
Terry and wife Karen have a little girl called Lucy, who was born in 2007 with Down Syndrome, but they are determined not to let the exhibition ruin her life.
A little bundle of joy, Lucy and her friends and family, along with other families and well wishers, attended the official opening ceremony which was performed by Peterborough Mayor Cllr George Simons on Thursday - World Down Syndrome Day.
Exhibiting a mistake
So why is there
a fall in sales?
The main types of mistakes:

OAKHAM Bypass could be thrown into jeopardy after the Government this week ordered a public inquiry.
The inquiry is expected to cost Rutland County Council between 150,000 and 300,000 – but this could be just the tip of the iceberg.
With inflation costs on road building running at 10 per cent a year, even a three month delay on the 10m bypass would cost 250,000.
If the issue takes a long time to resolve, Rutland County Council's leader this week told the Rutland Mercury he may be forced to decide whether the project was still 'affordable'
Phil Trow, Rutland's director of environmental services, issued a brief statement on Wednesday saying a letter had been received from the Secretary of State for Transport confirming there was going to be a
inquiry into the plans for Oakham Bypass.
He said: "We are in the process of looking through copies of the objections that were received to the plans.
"In the meantime we've started preparation for the inquiry and are confident of a positive outcome for Oakham."
In January more than 1,000 people filed through the doors of Victoria Hall to attend an exhibition on the bypass.
Feedback seemed positive, although there were objections from some residents in Egleton.
But soon afterwards four residents from the Foxfields estate off Burley Park Way launched a campaign demanding a public inquiry into the bypass
They leafleted hundreds of homes, urging people to write to the Government with objections.
When the Rutland Mercury contacted one of the organisers yesterday for a reaction to the public inquiry, he said they were unwilling to comment.
October 2011: Organisers of Democracy Week asked youngsters at Queensgate Shopping Centre, at schools and elsewhere in the city about their political knowledge.
One hundred young people aged 13 to 19 were asked:
*Who is the UK’s Prime Minister? 90 per cent correct
*Who is the USA’s President? 9 per cent correct
*Can you name one of Peterborough’s MPs at the Houses of Parliament? 17 per cent correct
*Can you name one of your local Ward Councillors?
5 per cent correct
*Which councillor is the leader of Peterborough City Council?
8 per cent correct
*How much do you trust politicians, out of 100 per cent? Average: 35 per cent

News from social media
Two-thirds of people trust what they read in their local paper, according to a new research study.
A survey of more than 2,000 UK adults found 67 pc of them trusted what they read in their local paper, compared to 35pc for their regional radio station.
This contrasted with less than one-fifth of people trusting what they read on Facebook.
