This is the same site that used to be at www.rreini.com and eventually may be there again, if things work out. Some links may not be fully functional yet; those will be corrected in due course.
New (October 16, 2011): nothing really new except some new travelogues
Who am I? I'm Roger Reini, a man who's spent some 40-odd years on this Earth, mostly in Texas (where I grew up) and Michigan (where I currently live).
Where I grew up:
League City, Texas -- not far from NASA's Johnson
THE BAHÁ'Í FAITH
The Bahá'í Faith has been an important part of my life since mid-1993, when I first began to study it. I've been a Bahá'í since March 1994. There are many things that attracted me to the Faith. For one thing, it makes so much sense. It speaks so eloquently to the needs of today. For another... well, perhaps you should read about it yourself. After all, independent investigation of the truth is a key principle of the Faith. Feel free to check out the links listed on the upper left of the page. Be sure to look at my pilgrimage journal as well; I visited the Holy Land in December 2007 and prayed at the sacred Shrines of Bahá'u'lláh and the Báb.
I took piano lessons when I was young, but my main musical instrument, and my true love, is the guitar. I started playing in 1976, right around the time I discovered the group that Paul McCartney belonged to before Wings, a somewhat obscure group from Liverpool known as the Beatles :) . I have several guitars -- an acoustic 12-string, an acoustic bass, a Les Paul Jr. clone (the first electric guitar I ever owned, a birthday present from Mom & Dad) -- but the guitars I like the most are my Rickenbackers.

OTHER ENTERTAINMENT INTERESTS
I've been an admirer of Tracey Ullman and her work for many years -- since March 24, 1984, to be exact. To see why, take a look at my site TTO: Totally Tracey Online.
I also enjoy The Simpsons (which spun out of The Tracey Ullman Show) and Star Trek in all its forms, as well as Doctor Who and its spinoffs (Torchwood, The Sarah Jane Adventures).
I have been licensed as a radio amateur since January 2006 (my callsign is KD8CSE) and am a member of the Ford Amateur Radio League. Here's the start of my page devoted to my radio activities.
