Thanks to all that responded.  Yes...I need to look into pre-generating 
all of the random numbers that may be needed.  It will not be trivial in 
the case of this particular application I am implementing, but is 
absolutely worth considering.

Robert Kern's response was more along the lines of what I was trying to 
convey though.  Does that particular bit of code require optimization?
