See you around!

I have retired!  I will be taking the site down or possibly re-purposing the domain.  If you need to find me, I am on FB & Twitter actively.  I do have an Instagram account, but I rarely use it.  Email works too- just use my first name, Herman, immediately followed by my last name, at mac.com

I’ll help you with the review guide.

It’s been my honor and privilege to meet you and work with you this semester. With apologies to Bad Company and Spock:

Reach for the sky, but don’t forget to churn up the ground.  “Live long and prosper.”
