    Hey all you Michigan folks thanks for the help , makes me feel good since I am from Michigan. I lived there for 40 plus years and I soo miss it, in fact all of my family that moved here to this hot humid state are bailing on me and moving back------ just because they can! I will be here in Arkansas with just my husband and we will be all alone and I am scared to death of that. I would so love to come back but DH says he will NOT go back to the land of snow and ice. I thank you all so for the definitions and please keep them coming. trudy

    I think all the acronyms started when people started text-messaging on their cell phones. Seems it's too cumbersome to spell things out on such a tiny screen with such tiny buttons.

    Also, many people don't know how to touch-type, so the fewer words they have to peck out, the better.

    Me, I still get mad when people can't spell out "through", and write "thru" instead. But I'm old fashioned I guess.


    (edited to correct grammar - another old fashioned concept)
