Karl Berry has already sensitized me to producing a document at some
point, for something else.  My Mom typically writes Luv on her golf
balls.  So on the farm, in 60 foot tall letters, I have LOVE and AWE
(followed by a puzzle piece).  Demands by an insurance company kept me
from doing a bunch of things over the last 1.25 years, which has
hindered those "writing on the landscape" efforts.  But, I tried to
"typeset" as best I could.  I think the typeface is Computer Modern, but
I don't remember exactly.

Until I can get a picture showing the words on the landscape, I will
not be producing a document.  And it is unlikely that I could present
it at an annual meeting.  It isn't in my budget.

But thanks for the feed back (both of you in this branch).
