[Sidefx-houdini-list] random UV transform

Hello all,

I have a grid that is made up of various sized rectangles ( just  
dissolved a handful of edges to make that).

I then made the points unique so the grid could deconstruct and the  
rectangles could fly off in different direction.

I also need a texture map to run across the grid so it appears as a  
solid image when the grid is together.
Easy enough with a UV texture and appropriate material applied.

However, I need to randomize the scale of the UV's sightly from  
primitive to primitive so the textured image
appears to be magnified somewhat differently from rectangle to  

I have been trying to use some random expressions in the UV  
transform's scale parameters multiplied by $PR,
but I seem to be getting a uniform transform across the entire  
grid ... not slight variations from primitive to primitive
as I expected.

Am I just looking at the wrong SOP??? or maybe I should be think  
about a different approach to writing this random expression??

Any other thoughts on how I might slightly randomize the UV scale  
from primitive to primitive across a grid with unique points??
