Herbs that Improve the Quality of Your Life

Naturally, Herbs have provided us with life-affirming benefits that we can all enjoy. The wide variety of Herbs available today makes deciding difficult. It seems as if a new herb is popping up every season; how to choose? Let's look at a few historically important Herbs to learn what might be of benefit to us.

Herb Score

One well known and influential Herb played for the Cleveland Indians, a city famous for herbs used in public restaurants and home cooking. Mr. Score pitched well in his rookie season, setting a strikeout record that stood for almost 30 years in Major League baseball. Unfortunately, Herb was struck in the face by a line drive off an opposing hitter's bat. He recovered to pitch effectively again; an inspiration to us all.

Herb Jones

Herb Jones played forward for the Cincinnati Bearcats, leading them to the NCAA Final Four in 1992. Mr Jones typified the in-your-face intense effort than coach Bob Huggins demanded of all his players. Although he was only 6' 2", rather short for a major college forward, Jones, played with a focus and drive that re-established the Bearcat program as a school to be taken seriously in the future. This Herb inspired all of us to acheive to our highest level and ignore our critics.

Herbie the Love Bug

Nothing typifies the come-from-behind underdog style that we all love to root for more completely than Herbie the Love Bug. This tenacious little franchise cruised into our hearts in 1963 as a simple white Volkswagen beetle with a heart as large as his gas tank. Plucky Herbie went on to become an entire franchise; movies, lunch boxes, safety helmets, and YouTube videos extol the exploits of Herbie and his retinue.

Herb Alpert & The Tijuana Brass

Ever heard of A&M records? Herb Alpert is the "A". Together with his skills (skillz?) as a trumpet player, showman, and band leader, Mr. Alpert founded one of the most successful recording companies in history.

Herbert Hoover

A great president who built a huge dam in Colorado, Herbert Hoover typified the never-say-die attitude of the Republican party in the 1900s.
