I am not sure where you saw this.

I saw

Five years ago James Annabell gave his father Toby a beehive he'd bought on Trade Me as a Christmas present.

"A month later we bought 100 more hives and today we have 4000," he said.

So in 1 month he went from 1 hive to 100 hives, and now to 4000 in 5 years.  Impressive

I meant I have grown from 1 to 4 hives .

I was imagining to effort to grow to 4000 

Where are we disagreeing ?

Yep. Age related condition I think. We were brainwashed to think that poor grammar/spelling indicated the end of the known world. 

Not age related in my case. Poor communication skills cause wars.

You may be correct. Oh the joys of the English language

I prefer your version . 

It is a much more logical .

If you read some old english text and you see how spelling and grammer has changed through the ages it is ridiculous to be pedantic about the correctness of modern english .

Languages change. Which is why I don't bridle anymore at confusion between "less" and "fewer"

What is your definition of Thru and Through.

I thought "Thru" was when you intend something but not physical. ie. Not thru lack of trying is not a physical event.

"Through" was when you do something physical.  ie I passed through the door.

Through is English.

 

Thru is informal American.

 

Same meaning however.

If you’re referring to US v English spelling - I take it you subscribe to the Queen’s English rather than the President’s tweets?
