By the way, today, I ran into one of the words from the list I posted in March and I remembered what it meant!
Also by the way, I used to keep a card file of words. Then when I entered the computer age I wrote a program to test me on random words I entered into the database. Now, you have to go out of your way to be able to run any programs you write yourself. (One of my pet peeves, Chuck). So my old BASIC program is worthless.
Maybe I'll try to find the old card file and bring it up to date. Sometimes low-tech is JUST FINE.
