Oh, how could I resist the chance to write as a "hardened 
internetter"?  If I get there first, it'll only be as I happened to 
check the mail minutes after you sent this (and Becca's at choir 
practice so I get the computer for once.  HAH!)

LOL is "laughing out loud".  ROFL (or is that ROTFL??) is "rolling on 
the floor laughing".

"Yours ignorantly" makes me think of Daddy Long Legs :)
