    P.S. I plan to print it out and keep it with me while I post for future reference!

    Hi Jamie, I seldom use abbreviations, but these are some of the more common. Others will fill you in on the ones they know.

    Shalom, Shirl

    Hi! I'm glad you found this site. It has been a life-saver for me. I don't get to visit very often, but when I do, I can spend HOURS here!!

    As to your question about abbreviations used here, MemoryLane did a post on 6/3/03 called "List of Abbreviations-Guinness would be Proud". I printed it & pull it out whenever I'm here so I know what everyone's talking about! If you do a search on abbreviations, you will find this post. It is one of the most extensive ones that I have found. MemoryLane did an excellent job!
