Note:   These last two classes have taken extra time to develop, so we appreciate you being patient and checking back to see when they are coming.  We will get them up as soon as we can, but we don’t want to jeopardize  the quality of the class.  We take pride in each of these classes, so that you will have original material, just as if you were in a live learning situation.
