Howdy you all, Happy 4th of July!
This summer is going by fast. Real fast. It seems like only the other day since Summer I started and now it's over. Maybe it was the jet lag from the European trip, that's how my Summer I started.
We had a great time in the Music for Children class Summer I. I am always amazed how much content we are able to cover in this course. Everyone in the class grew so much this summer. They are all going to be great teachers.

I'm the one in the blue suit.
The Herb Report is going great. Many folks have given me positive feedback, so the Herb Report will continue for a long time. Since it only takes a webcam, YouTube and ten minutes, I should be able to keep these going on for a while.
I plan to have guest co-host from time to time. Last week I was able to get a great friend to join me for a cast. You have all seen his work if you have seen the "I'm a Nerd" music video of me playing the song in my Stormtrooper armor. Well, Jim or TK560 made that Stormtrooper armor. Jim has many talents and loves to talk about his TV and movie props he has made over the last few years. This is a great cast for all of those that like to learn about the behind the scenes part of movie making.

Here I am in low light right after the summer rain stopped, making a music video.
It has been raining a lot the past few weeks. So I wrote a song about the rain. I took a lot of photos and made a photo music video. Also, I recorded the song while it was raining out. I hope you all enjoy it.

Herb-a-Grams are cool to get and make.
Making the ad for a Herb-a-Gram was sort of a joke. I didn't think that anyone would want one. Well, I was wrong. Folks love getting them. And I love making them too. If you want one, let me know. As long as I have time, I do a couple a week. It is a great feeling to give someone a little joy in their lives in return for a few minutes of me singing a song.
