Why are some of the pictures on your site missing?

They aren’t missing, you just can’t see them. I’m sorry… The picture’s you’re not seeing are linked in from another site, such as Amazon.com. To view them, you will need to disable blocking for this site (scrapdeli.com) in your ad blocker. I don’t inundate you with advertising. I only show images of products that are specifically related to the article you are viewing. I’m not doing it to get rich, but whatever income I might derive goes directly to supporting the site.

What are those letter codes in some of the posts all about?

They are common internet abbreviations. They are often also used in cell phone text messages. For example, DH stands for Dear Husband, MIL stands for Mother-In Law, and DD1 stands for Darling Daughter number one, who would be the oldest daughter.
