LOL  that is too funny.  If you join any group there is usually a post that says "Welcome introduce yourself"  and there is a place you can go that has "help desk - ask questions - tips - and abreviations"  If you click on this it will show you all of the common abreviations that are used on CM.  (I will try to add the shortcut here but not sure if it will work)

P.S.   DH  means  Darling Husband
