If you want to correctly use "its" vs. "it's" (you didn't), remember that "it's" means "it is," and "its" means "belonging to it."

    ..."it's" means "it is"...

    So "It's been raining all day" means "It is been raining all day"? ;)

      Good point. In this case, "it's" is a contraction of "it has".

    So you looked at the almost totally unpunctuated OP and that was what caught your (you're? yore? Eeyore?) eye? I guess it could have been worse; at least there were capitals (capitols?) at the beginnings of teh sentences.     sigh

      Word is The.
