RE: Osculating element sets and secular effects

Tom, Ken and Bob,

Thanks for the answers.  I had a notion that "secular" was being used in
the sense of "worldly", but was pretty baffled by "osculating"  ... the
Google links I found talked about it, but I didn't pick up on the origin
of the term.

And thanks to the other guys for the humor also!
