My last name is Calandra and live with my parents. I am making new return address lables. Should the first line be The Calandra's or The Calandras?
If the word (the family name) is being used as a plural (which it seems to be in this case) then please don't use an apostrophe. Say "The Calandras" on labels, signs or whatever. Otherwise you will annoy sticklers like me.

I got 8/10
A. The 70's was a great decade for music.Doing it without the apostrophe is fairly new, and I can't fault anybody (me, for example) for using the first one (A).
B. The 70s' was a great decade for music.
C. The 70s was a great decade for music.
(I was spot on with the rest.)
