Natasha’s Visit

As you know from my last post I have recently had the opportunity to reconnect with my daughter.  I am happy to report that she came to visit this weekend and it was a very special time.  I had no idea how happy this would make me, but it was a wonderful thing to be

My Daughter

Brief update, but had to share! This past week, something wonderful happened. Something that I have been looking forward to and kind of expecting for awhile. My daughter reached out to me and wants to visit. She saw on one of the social media websites that she has a  we brother and wants to visit

First Road Trip

The fourth of July holiday week has come and gone and that marks the successful completion of our first road trip with Spencer. We went to Maine to visit family and 600 miles is a long ways for a child’s first trip, but I must say it was not nearly as bad as I thought


Little advice for all the parents out there, don’t let your babies get dehydrated. It sneaks up on you really quick and needs to be addressed as soon as possible. It just happened to us and it was a pretty scary experience. We ended up in the emergency room and Spencer had to be admitted

Herman’s Blog

Welcome to my blog.  For those of you who don’t know the Herman 101, I was born in Pennsylvania and grew up in southern Virginia.  After high school I attended Virginia Tech for a short but sweet time.  I then developed an interest to serve my country and decided to enter the Navy.  I remained there for 11 years and although I am not sure I would do it again, I must say I did learn alot and experience and it was good for me.  After completing my service, I moved to Maryland and started working at a biotech company (Human Genome Sciences).

Me and My GSXR 1000

I still work there because it is the best job I have ever had.  I married a wonderful woman in 2007 who, even though struggles to remember our anniversary, makes me extremely happy.  I think she loves me almost as much as I love her.  We both own motorcycles, a shared hobby which I thoroughly enjoy.  As you can see, I have started blogging, with the assistance of the afore mentioned lovely wife.
