Dear Husband ... and I say that affectionately ... most of the time.

DH is one of the more common acronyms, used across the web in various communities like this. I do understand your point though, I find many talking in techie terms using them, and I do sometimes get lost too.

Sorry, and I do know what you mean. Pretty soon, we'll all be talking in a new form of pidgin English. Just heard about the new words added to the Scrabble dictionary ... lolz (laughs), bezzy (best friend) and tuneage (music). Sigh!

Scrabble certainly does allow some strange words. I already had lolz played against me (I play a bunch online), but haven't heard of the other two. Tough to keep track of all these words in me aging brain.

Most of this has been covered well, but I'll just note that ferries and tunnels require that the source of propane be turned off at the tank to reduce the risk of propane leaks (especially dangerous in an enclosed space), while gas stations require that sources of ignition (such as flames) are turned off to reduce the risk of a gasoline explosion. Very different risks resulting in very different requirements.

There is no need to shut off the propane supply at a gas station, unless that's the only way you can get the refrigerator to shut down the propane burner. The refrigerator in my motorhome just requires pushing one button to prevent propane operation, so it's easy to do (and resuming propane operation is just a button push because there is no pilot, so no lighting or auto-relighting); my trailer's old refrigerator would require re-lighting, which is a real pain in the neck.
