Could someone please tell what GARF is?

I feel some what dumb here, but I see it used all the time by other posters.

I think there could be a book for all of them with exception perhaps of Marie, who although beautiful and interesting really didn't live enough of a life to fill a whole book, and didn't have the ability to write endlessly about her, like Anastasia. Anastasia had a real personality and also a afterlife ( Anna Anderson) so you can really write about her. Olga and Tatiana were the oldest daughters of the Tsar and thus lived more of a life that can be written about, one way or the other, and there is much you can say on their personalities and times. Of course, these would probably have to be photo biographies, but that would be good because photography was a essential part of their life, and they live on in their photos. I think that there is certainly enough information for this, but it is true there might be much of a market.

Anybody have any opinions :) I love this topic so I would like to hear them. It is dull that I am the last post to this subject. :(
