Please note that, as part of our procedures to kill all SPAM (Unsolicited Bulk Commercial Email), you must enter a code word in the SUBJECT line when you open your email program. By using code words regularly, you'll be helping us, and yourself, to ensure that SPAM is thwarted.

You will find the correct code word to use below (simply copy/paste into the email SUBJECT line).


Failure to enter the code on the SUBJECT line will result
in your email being deleted at our server, unread.

We hope you understand the need for this device, as a means for stopping spammers sending unwanted bulk commercial email....

Thank you for your patience!

Now, to keep things even simpler, there is only one public email address:

ugotmail AT

Copy and paste that to your email program, replace the AT with the usual character for all email addresses, and then use this - LULUAI - as the word in the Subject. That code word can be all upper or lower case, or any mix thereof - it doesn't matter - simply enter it yourself or copy/paste the word into the line.

Add relevant words to the SUBJECT line (if you wish) and then put your message in the BODY of the email and send.

Too easy!

Should you momentarily forget to enter the correct code word, as above, but you hit SEND anyway ... don't worry. Just send your email again with the code word included. Rest assured, no harm done!

And ... if you have a code word filter for your email client, please add it to the Subject line after our code word with at least one space separating them. Otherwise, you'll never get to read our response!

You know the usual meaning(s) - now rest your mouse on it to find out another, not so common, meaning!

Dreams of adventure become reality when, in 1961, nineteen-year-old Roger Burke gets a job in New Guinea as a Cadet Patrol Officer.

Another Fool's Paradise

So ... come with Roger as he tackles the clash of cultures; the harshness and humor of colonial administration; patrolling in country; earthquakes, tropical diseases and other nasties; investigating murders and suicides; and just missing death by a spear in the gut....

AD HOC....

2019, July

The app, Sound Words, has been finalized and tested satisfactorily with a dummy database. Unexpected formatting issues, however, with my original database will require more time to modify before it can be used.

Realistically, those mods should be finished by mid-August or earlier. Thereafter, it will be quick to upload to Google Play and The App Store.

2019, September

Data base modifications have been successfully completed. The app is now being assembled and tested for later upload, hopefully this month. Not long now....

2019, October

Unforunately, delay has occurred because of our need to attend a family member who has been hospitalized during this month; recovery is now in progress, but daily attendance at hospital is necessary. Working as quickly as we can to complete the launch of Sound Words.

2019, December

More delays as a result of continued hospitalization for family member who is seriously ill. All progress on Sound Words is delayed until further notice.
