Happy 🇺🇸Fourth of July 2024

Happy 🇺🇸Fourth of July 2024 A Gift 💝 of Light From Jeanine 🕯️  I like to create videos for you guys for the holidays. We have Thanksgiving, Christmas, Valentine’s Day and Fourth of July videos on our Website/Facebook Page/Linked In/Youtube Channels and ideally, I would like to update or change them every year. So this year I have something new made especially for you. I have combined some video I took of our local Big Bear fireworks show over the lake, which is quite spectacular, with some artwork and cool materials from InShot where I create my videos. This wonderful app offers quite a selection from intros and outros through transitions, blank screen options and great graphics. I have only recently begun to add some of these to my own videos. Because this video is for celebrating Fourth of July, I used magic light for my video guiding light theme. Then chose some of the light graphic options, including fireworks and also selected “Happy Birthday” adding a“USA” sticker. You will just have to watch to understand how that works. It’s cool. Over the live fireworks section I filmed beginning around the middle of the video, I have added some text. These words play as in a musical book over the fireworks display. “As we celebrate Independence Day, remember how blessed we are to live in the USA 🇺🇸 She is indeed the “Land of the free and the home of the brave“ No matter what conflict or trouble is going on in our country, we work it out together eventually. I have lived in other countries but find that there is no place like home. And we have an incredible country to call home here in the USA. “Born In the USA “ So, “Crown thy good with brotherhood” Peace! ☮️ Love! ❤️ Freedom! 🇺🇸 Have a safe fun filled Fourth and if you have dogs, please make sure that they are somewhere comfortable so as not to be as upset by the loud and distressing sound of exploding fireworks.

Tomato 🍅 Transplant Time⏳

Tomato 🍅 Transplant Time⏳

Tomato 🍅 Transplant Time⏳ WITH J9 Before I begin to attempt a description of this video, which apparently is requisite for your social media platforms, I must acknowledge the wonderful music behind my video. The song is “Everything‘s OK“ by Wendy Marcini. Thank you all! Now begins the interesting (to me) part of this description. On the first draft of this video, I realized when scrutinizing for glitches and errors that I had misspelled Ms Marcini’s name in the credit section. The correct spelling of a name is so important to me having been born with the name HLAVKA, which is misspelled 99.9% of the time. So when I mistakenly typed Martini I realize that I had to go back into editing the video and correct it. But here is the wonderful strange magical thing about some mistakes. They are not really mistakes at all. They are teachers. They are an opportunty to do something better. So I tweaked my draft and I think I’m happy with sharing and posting this final video. Unless I change it again. Oh you want the description not the digression? Well, you are going to be watching me transplant a baby tomato plant into a larger pot. If that sounds boring, you don’t know Music Mama Jeanine Comedy will always find me. Next I have to add to this description hashtags, which are requisite for social media platforms, I think the first # will be#Gardening Then #Whatever #Comedy #Goofy #Tomatoes #OldLadies #fun #YouTube #BigBearLake #HowNotToDoStuff FYI Our company Mother’s Heartlight Music is donating 100% of any profits from Jeanine’s videos (Seen On YouTube/Facebook/Social Media) To Diabetes Research Institute Foundation Join our community by subscribing and following us on social media: LINKS YouTube https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCMvTKi7Bi0I8xoWpBMbCNBQ YOU TUBE KIDS CHANNEL https://youtube.com/@musicmamasmoviesforkids?feature=shared Twitter https://www.tiktok.com/@j9musicmom?is_from_webapp=1&sender_device=pc TikTok https://www.tiktok.com/@jeaninemarie53?is_from_webapp=1&sender_device=pc LINKEDIN www.linkedin.com/in/jeanine-michaels-651aba236 CONTACT Website: www.jeaninemichaels.com

Love The One You’re With

“Love The One You’re With” A Video Slideshow For Meghan And Everyone Else I miss my beautiful daughter every single day ever since she left this earth. I dedicate everything I do everyday to her memory and you will see her influence in my work. You could not have a better muse. So you may have seen some of these photos previously in my work, but each time each one has a special place. Meg taught me about love and I try to put love into everything I do. This video is made with love. And some help from Macs “Slideshow” Don’t ask me how I did it having never done it before, because it involved several devices: The camera on an iPhone, iPad for backup and B Roll and a computer screen playing with just the right lighting, sound and angle for filming. Next the options: Memory Video Or Slideshow? This is only my third slideshow experience so I have not yet explored all of the choices which include: Ken Burns, origami, reflections, sliding panels, vintage prints, classic, or magazine! Oh my! I will simply have to try them all. You may want to be careful with the choices you make from your photos for a slideshow. After discovering that if you add videos, the music goes away, the sound from those videos plays, and it is not as aesthetically pleasing as using photos only. Because of this lesson, I created an entire album called “photos for slideshows“ and filled it with photos having a concurrent theme. Hence this video slideshow tribute is themed love ❤️ and is a gentle reminder to love the one you are with. We never know how long we have with anyone so just love them. My late father, who introduced me to computers, and especially McIntosh versus the evil Empire, would most likely be very proud of his daughter and her increasing proficiency since first introduced to the computer and didn’t know how to turn it on. Hey Dad! I can turn it on now! In the years since you have been gone there have been amazing advances in technology and Computers 🖥️ I think of your days at Caltech and then working for JPL and Aerospace. You told me the size of those early computer screens took up an entire wall of a room. Now you can hold one in your hand.🖐️ PS I have terrible arthritis in my hands now! Did you have a dictation as a function when you were here? Today, June 2024, you can speak into the microphone after pressing dictation and it writes the text for you. A nice option when you have arthritis. And that is all before changing and adding the music. I use the auto didactic method of learning editing. I would like to take this opportunity to thank the musicians Sleeping Vines for the joyful music “Stay With Us’ Meggie, you are with us!

Evergreen With Jeanine

Evergreen With Jeanine

Evergreen With Jeanine Description: The song is Evergreen The vocal performance is from Jeanine. The magic orchestra is courtesy of magician technician Charles Laurence. This is a family love story set to music. No excuses, but just to let you know, I am no Barbra Streisand. When the magnificent Barbra Streisand recorded her version of her song, she brought her magnificent voice to a professional studio with top-of-the-line recording equipment and a staff of professionals. When I recorded my version 33 years ago, I had two little babies and the recording occurred in the backyard at my brother-in-law‘s wedding and the recording equipment was sorely lacking and nobody helped me! Where is your sound engineer when you need him? Or her. So I won’t apologize for any flat notes you may hear or for stylistic choices that nowadays I might make differently. But my voice has changed over the years and too many night as a whiskey bar singer. When I sang this song as a gift to my new sister-in-law, I was accompanied on electric piano by Steve Binder. However, the sound of that piano was not good. I had forgotten about this song over the years until my wizard friend and studio producer Charles Laurence found it in some old DVDs I gave him to work on. He took that audio and created an MP3 with a complete orchestra behind the vocal. It was magic! And perhaps I should not disclose this fact and let you think that I performed at Carnegie Hall with an orchestra. But because I will be sharing this on LinkedIn there may be interested parties who might like to hire Mr. Laurence to do the same thing for them then I must disclose the information in the description. Now that I had the music, it was time for some visuals to make a new cool video. Because it is a love song and it is personal to me, I am including video and photos of my own loved ones. I think you know these guys because they have appeared in my videos before. However this is new, it is a bit different and I hope you enjoy it.
