I wish! This Russian is too well fed to chase mice. And it's arrogant enough to do contentious things, like sleep on my computer.

Have a look at the bottom of any thread when viewing.
There is a button called "Abbreviations" click it and all will be reveled.

Hope this helps.

I'm stupid too. There's never the SWMBO(or something similar) in there. What does that stand for?(It's OK,i've got one and she never looks at the forum) Bob.

Just a technical point here fellow members!! SWMBO certainly stands for She Who Must Be Obeyed & is usualy used by Queenslanders who are ruled by their wives

However.............. Should you live in NSW where REAL men rule the roost, the abbreviation is SWMBI, standing for She Who Must Be ignored. Just a detail I know, but an important one. LOL
