I always use TQ.

The last time that I had to move my website, I promised myself that next time I would get my own domain name! Well, that time has arrived. Here is the new (and hopefully last!) address for my abbreviations list: Homeschool Abbreviations with Links.


Please update your booksmarks/links and visit the new page so that it will move up in the searches to where the old page was.
