FUN October News... Valerie Weaver, John Maleno, Nick Scott, Sr.

Greetings World!

Extreme Makeover. We are quickly approaching Erie's debut on EMHE (date is a well-kept secret). Keeping it real- the cynical among us may be tempted to reduce the good will of many to star-struck opportunism. I can't read souls, but what I have witnessed behind the scenes, particularly on the board by the likes of John Maleno and Nick Scott, far surpasses what most know, or will ever know.

While the outpouring of generosity made her dream home possible... the heart of it is serving underprivileged children-- did you know she feeds 20-30 kids every day? Her organization could use your financial support... every cent will go toward the children. Please go to her new site! With your donation of any amount we're giving away our Season II DVD - which captures Clara's amazing story, and was an inspiration for ABC's selection of Clara.

We're passionate about capturing an organization/company's personality and showcasing it through excellent video to the world! Here are some recent examples:

Erie Playhouse. Recently we produced a short promo for Erie Playhouse - "It's Magical!" Check it out at

Valerie Weaver is well known to Erie as the "frugal fashionista." She contacted me this week and in 24 hours we established her domain, built a basic site, and produced a video - all in time for her big event this weekend (! Check it out at

Amish Buggy. Keep your eyes peeled for the fun commercial we developed for The Amish Buggy, corresponding to their Amish Autumn Sale which runs from October 9 - 18. Check it out HERE.

Everyone's life says something.
Don't miss it!

Tune in to the City. You'll get hooked!

Song II - Birds

FIRST SONG/POST 2 MONTHS AGO: So, I'm digging through my massive CD collection (Remember those? From the "olden days"?)... and I come across a recording of original songs from over 10 years ago... before six children, when I actually had time to write poetry, work on guitar and piano, set it to music... any way, for humility sake, here's track #6 (Love Comes In) from the CD appropriately entitled: The First and The Last - if you're interested... written when my wife and I began dating.

SECOND SONG/POST: Here's the follow-up. It's been a few months since I posted the above, so I'm just adding to that post a second song from the CD. Here in Erie, Pa. we have the beauty of water... and this large piece of land called Presque Isle... 13 mile "isle" of beaches and forest preserve. Ten years ago I brought my camera and went to one of the lighthouses... it was late fall-turning winter. I was absolutely enraptured by a multitude of birds soaring on the wind... it was quite magestic, and inspired this guitar instrumental, simply called Birds (CLICK HERE).
