If you want, Lori, I could post your pic there and see what the semp experts have to say...

That would be excellent, Cohan!  Thank you very much.  Should I e-mail you the photos posted here or is it possible to copy them from (or link to) this site?

I finally go this linked over to the Semp forum; the responses agreed most likely Jovibarba globifera hirta (also called Sempervivum globiferum hirtum or J hirta);
Though it was noted that growing conditions could result in notable variation, and a close-up of a rosette showing leaf detail would be helpful...

Thanks very much, Cohan.  It's a bit hard to get a focused close-up in the twilight this evening but these show the bristly edges to the leaves.  I can get better photos tomorrow night or on the weekend.  I don't have any photos of the flowers at all (not that it was asked for).
