Hergert Numbers in the Bahamas

The summer vacation season continues with yet another Hergert Numbers appearance. This time RVC math professor Diane Koenig is seen with her shirt on Disney's private island in the Bahamas.

She also sent me pictures of her twins in their shirts from the same vacation. Since this blog only allows one picture per post, I've added them to the slideshow.

The Latest in Hergert Numbers Paraphernalia

That's right! It's the first in an extremely limited supply of Hergert Numbers bobblehead dolls. There are actually only two in existence. I got one for Mrs. Hergertnumbers for her birthday and another one for myself. I got them through Bobbleheads.com in Atlanta, but when they shipped they came from China via Anchorage. I was wondering why the email messages with photos to approve at various stages in the bobbleheads' development were always sent at 2:00 in the morning. Amazingly, it took only about four days in transit from halfway around the world.

I'm not sure where Mrs. Hergertnumbers will keep hers, but you can bet that mine will be on display at RVC once school is in session in the fall. If you're in the neighborhood, stop by for a visit and make my head bobble!

Four score and seven years ago...

Who's that with Honest Abe? It's none other than Tony Paris who teaches math at Carl Sandburg College in Galesburg, IL. If you think this is somewhere in the Land of Lincoln, think again! Tony took his Hergert Numbers shirt on vacation to the Gettysburg National Military Park. That's the second HN sighting in Pennsylvania in the last couple weeks. The word is bound to be spreading!

BTW, this was not the "item" I alluded to in my previous post. That's still coming on Friday.

Hergert Numbers iPod!

It's really hard to take a decent picture of such a shiny surface, but if you look closely at the engraving you'll see the world's first Hergert Numbers iPod. Apple came out with a deal last week for college teachers or students where you could get a $200 rebate if you bought an iPod Touch and a computer at the same time. The idea is that the rebate is equal to the cost of the cheapest iPod Touch, so that would be free. I chose to go for a slightly bigger one, but it's still a great deal and I was going to get a new laptop this summer anyway.

Stay tuned - there's an even better Hergert Numbers item coming at the end of next week.
