Thank you for taking the time to contact us with your queries or comments




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).

Important:

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 rogersreference.com


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!

Sincerely,
Roger signing off

Curiously Common Words
DEVIL
You know the usual meaning(s), I'm sure - 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.

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....

2017, August

Slow recuperation allows time for reflection about many things, especially life's brevity and one's goals.

In fact, a few months back, and given the technological trends in the last ten years, I decided a major change was needed to make my work and offerings here more accessible.

Well, as a first step, I've decided to convert the main homonym & homophone dictionary into a mobile app for cell phones and tablets. With the help of my partner and wife, Sherry, I'm hoping to have that job done by end 2018. If I'm lucky enough, I'll then convert all other products here to the same mobile format, thus eventually dispensing with all ebook and printed versions.

I figure that will be easier all round for those interested. And, I'll continue to comment on progress here.
