    A little background material, just in case we know each other from years ago and you'd like to contact me. Please feel free!

    I live in Houston, Texas, and am retired from Shell Oil as a Geophysicist. I grew up in Pasadena, Texas, and received my degrees from Rice University, and from the University of Colorado, in Physics.

    I made my Cursillo in 1992. This was a seminal event for me, and I have since served on several Cursillo teams including being the rector for one, and a Kairos team. Part of my response has been to become the FAQ

    I do some programming. I have several perl programs available for free, see the link to the left. My software for generating mailing labels seems to be especially popular.
