". . . vanity of vanities; all is vanity" -Ecclesiates 1:2 (KJV)

One does have to have a certain amount of vanity to make up one of these things. I've been studying home pages since I started writing this. Many fall into one of two categories: glorified electronic resumes, or electronic personal ads. This is meant to be neither.

This is intended to mostly be a professional homepage. I will tell you about some neat astronomical research I have been doing. And a few personal items.

I have recently returned to the LA area after a 22 year exile. For various reasons, I love LA.

The best links I have found have been obtained by checking out other sites' Hot (or Cool) Links. In that spirit, here are some links I have found to be interesting.

More as I figure out how HTML works. And get time to work on it. Yeah, right.
