Easter: Shout Out To Tinsley plus Easter/Passover Recipes Below(I’m moving to New York)

March 30, 2010

When I, Renee Ashley Baker, was a little girl (at Easter) I always had two things: An Easter Basket (complete with white bunny) and a handbag to match the pretty dress my mother would buy for me from Stix Baer & Fuller or Famous Barr in St. Louis, Missiouri. (By the way Tinsley did you know that the wife of one of the founders of Standard Oil used to volunteer in the new born infant ward at Barnes Hospital in St. Louis Missouri? (Barnes Hospital in St. Louis Missouri is where I, Renee Ashley Baker, was born). And Tinsley did you know that Topper’s family attended college at DU/University of Denver? (DU is where I, Renee Ashley Baker, attended college). Anyway–Tinsley–I’d like you–to design a handbag especially for me. I want the handbag to be a lunch/dinner/high tea handbag. I want the handbag to be:
(a) Clutch size.
(b) In pink or white.
(c) Hand painted or silk screened with two figurines–a Chinese man and a Chinese woman.
(d) Have a long gold chain to hang over my shoulder….)

THANKS….P.S. I, Renee Ashley Baker, will reside in New York City (and in Monaco Monte Carlo where I will headquarter my charitable foundation: Special Olympics 2….)

plus….Happy Easter….

RENEE PERFUME BY CHANEL?

I, Renee AshleyBaker, am a woman who loves fragrance. So much so that I want to produce and market my own fragrance. I’ll call it “Renee #9 by Chanel” or “Renee Perfume by Chanel” …(Of course I’ll be talking in greater detail with Chanel about this). Anyway–there is nothing like wafting into a room and leaving a scent flowing behind you. (The looks on peoples faces when I enter a room wearing a fragrance can only be described as ‘delightful). Below are some websites for women who just have to wear a “fragrance”. And Below is the only fragrance for a woman to wear—“Chanel”….

Travel: Jet Set or Jet Blue (Pampering, Planning, and Photographing)

December 2, 2009

globetrotter-luggage

Renee Ashley’s Red ‘Globetrotter’ Travel Case

PAMPERING:
It is inevitable that you’ll get stuck in an airport somewhere, sometime, so why not relax while you’re waiting?

Get Pampered: At Detroit Metro Airport, you can get a facial, a massage, and a shower in McNamara terminal.

Listen to Chopin: Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport has a pianist to serenade irritable would-be passengers.

Tee Off: At Dallas/Ft. Worth International Airport, you can play 36 holes of golf on airport property–if you’ve got the time.

Up Your Culture Quotient: Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport has spent millions on its world-class art collection.

Sample the Chardonnay: At Baltimore/Washington International, a wine bar serves flights of wine during delays.

PLANNING:
Fly Early In The Day. At airports scheduled to capacity, any delay in the morning means there will be at least that much of delay for every flight thereafter.

Depart A Day In Advance. For crucial trips, such as a business meeting or a wedding.

Check the Delay Statistic For your flight: For how often that flight is more than 15 minutes late on a scale of 1 to 9 (the lower the number, the more often it’s late)–before you book your tickets. Airlines are required by law to give you the stat if you ask for it: many post it on their websites. If the number is 5 or below and time is of the essence, consider another flight.

Sign Up for the registered traveler program. At (tsa.gov/approach/rt/travelers.shtm)to take some of the pain out of the preflight experience. Travelers who pass a voluntary background check can use special lanes to whisk through security at nearly 20 U.S. airports, including in Denver, Oakland, Orlando, and San Francisco.

Make A Call– If you get to the gate and the airline says you’ve lost your seat: Contact the ‘Coalition for an Airline Passangers’ Bill of Rights’ at 877-359-3776. Kate Hanni, the group’s founder, says stranded passengers have told her that seats were suddenly found for them when they called CAPBOR from the airport and let airline personnel know they’d done so. If your flight is canceled, the group’s volunteer staff will help you book hotels, research your flight status, offer alternative routes, help with car rental, and relay weather information.

Understand Your Options: When you’re stuck on the ground for hours after boarding, there’s a reason. “If the airlines lock the doors, the don’t have to provide refunds, credits, lodgling, and food expenses” says Paul Hudson, executive director of the Aviation Consumer Action Project. You can circulate a petition demanding to be let off the plane and take it to the cockpit. An airline can’t hold people against their will unless there is a safety reason, and the Captain has the authority to let people off. If the situation worsens, call the police or a local TV or radio station from your cell phone. CAPBOR hotline volunteers can also put you in touch with the media.

Join The Fight: To enact an Airline Passengers’ Bill of Rights federal legislation that would mandate, among other things. that passengers be allowed to deplane when they are held on the tarmac for more than three hours as well as require airlines to provide delayed passengers with food, water, sanitary facilities, and medical attention. Know, however, that the major U.S. carriers are dead set against the bill, arguing that cockpit crews should make these calls. For more information on the Passenger’s Bill visit: http://www.flyersrights.com

PHOTOGRAPHING:

Want To Load your holiday pictures onto one website and have them ‘magically appear’ on every website you have? Then try: Posterous.com, Friendfeed.com, Tripit.com,

GET 29:
Did you know that in 1929 the city of St. Louis hired Archie League, the country’s first air traffic controller? He uses two signal flags to direct planes. Red means hold; black-and-white means go.
