Default Please explain F1, F2, F3...

Could someone please explain F1, F2, F3 and so on to me.

My understanding is that one variety is crossed with another variety and those seeds are F1: but F2 is where I am confused. Is it F1 crossed with a third variety, or is it F1 pollinating itself?
A nice simple explanation in layman's terms would be most helpful. And a thorough one please because my memory isn't so good so I may need to refer back to this thread many times.
Thank you to those who's decades of knowledge is passed on to us, that we may pass it on to the next generation.
