ABOUT VETS UNEMPLOYMENT

Unemployment Stats Among Vets ARE ALARMING:

Since 9/11 unemployment among Veterans stands at 9.5 percent (compared with a national average of 8.2 percent). Among youonger Vets the problem is even more dire: Those 24 and younger have an unemployment rate of 29 percent. Kevin Schmiegel, vp of U.S. Chamber of Commerce (and a Veteran of 20 years in the Marine Corps) endorses the new Hire Our Heroes Campaign (which, so far has received 156,000 pledges to hire)….To keep the numbers moving the right direction, the Chamber will host 400 job fairs for Veterans around the Country; and in a first, 60 of those events will be held on Military Bases.

**The above paragraphs were taken from “Man On A Mission” by Bill Hewitt, Parade Magazine, August 19, 2012).

FYI: My sister — Miss M–is a Military Wife ….A wife of a retired U.S. Air Force Sgt. Miss M and her husband lived all over the world (both on and off Base) . On this Blog are photos of Miss M’s beautiful home and photos of the beautiful Miss M being pulled through the streets of Hong Kong like an Empress (in the early 1960’s) by a Rickshaw boy….I, Renee Ashley Baker, am doing this Veterans Day Page for Miss M, for my Mother–also a Military Wife–for my Brother James also U.S. Air Force –and for My Father–Mr. Ashley—A SOLDIER in the U.S. ARMY….. )

(“Sorry NitWit Romney”…..)

AND….

I LOVE….AND….I LOVE….AND….

“I Love New York” says, Renee Ashley Baker

PARK AVENUE PARTY by SLIM AARONS….

and what about WASHINGTON DC ?

Yes, I Renee Ashley Baker, plan to be the “Hostess With The Mostess” in Washington DC. I, Renee Ashley Baker will give FABULOUS “cocktail parties, in my Washington DC apartment….

Buy at Tiffany & Co “The Cornelia Lunch Box”.

(Hopefully, I, Renee Ashley Baker, will be designing a crocodile handbag “The Irmigard” for Tiffany & Co which will sell for $3,000-$9,000….)

and

and

and

what about “THE MZ ZONE” ?

IDEA 2 FOR MARK ZUCKERBERG (aka the “MZ Zone”)

Those of you who read my “Facebook Page” know that I, Renee Ashley Baker, posted an “idea” for Mark Zuckerberg (in hopes of getting 500,000 shares of “FB stock”). Now, I have another “idea” for Mr. Mark Zuckerberg (IDEA #2) wherby I, Renee Ashley Baker, would give Mark Zuckerberg “Facebook rights” to my “Newspaper Syndicated Podcast”. I, Renee Ashley Baker, would give Mark Zuckerberg these rights for the 500,000 shares of “Facebook Stock”…..(Mr. Zuckerberg has added many apps and entertainments to Facebook aka “Angry Birds” and “Zynga” and “Instagram”…. Perhaps– my “Syndicated Podcast” would be “entertaining enough” to get Facebook users OFF OF THEIR MOBILES and back to their Facebook’s pages where they can view my “entertaining” OMG-type “podcast”…..)

AND…..AND….AND…..

ABOUT…..

HURRICANE SANDY….BEFORE, DURING, AND AFTER….

IDEA 3 (for Disaster Preparedness)

Renee Ashley Baker’s idea for “Disaster Preparedness”?

How about having a “list” of “Disaster Helpers” who will “swing into action” in a catastrophe such as Hurricane Sandy? Meaning helicopter companies and pilots, airplane charter companies and pilots, and manufacturing companies (blankets, apparel, and other needed items–especially FOOD). Volunteers in States (other than the “catastrophe state”) would begin dialing the above “manufacturing” companies and arranging for “delivery” of “needed items”. This–all “Volunteer Disaster Bank” would work “outside of” but possibly “in tandem with” FEMA…..Of course, the “helicopter, airplane charter and manufacturing companies” would be able to “write these donations off their income taxes”….

——————————————————————————————-
AND…I HAVE TO KEEP SAYING IT BUT…..

MY ANSWER IS “STILL NO” TO DENVER’S D-LIST COWTOWN FILM INDUSTRY…..AND “NO” TO MELANIE, NO TO COLUMBIA, NO TO GEFFEN, NO TO JULIA ROBERTS, NO TO ANGELINA JOLIE AND STILL NO TO MADONNA. NO TO BOOKS, NO TO UNIVERSAL , NO TO WARNER BROS …..NO TO ALL OTHERS I, RENEE ASHLEY BAKER, PREVIOUSLY SAID “NO” TO….

I, RENEE ASHLEY BAKER, WILL BE MOVING TO WASHINGTON DC FOR A YEAR…..THEN, ON TO FRANCE (TO HOPEFULLY, WORK FOR THE WERTHEIMERS AND “ERMA FRENCH PERFUME AND DESIGN”….)

Press Release/For Immediate Release: Christmas Songwriting Contest

November 30, 2009

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

POPULAR BLOG HOSTS NATIONAL SONGWRITING CONTEST

Attention Songwriters: Enter Your Original ‘Christmas Song’ and Win Exposure!

You have heard these words haven’t you: “Chestnuts roasting on an open fire–Jack Frost nipping at your nose–Yuletide carols being sung by a choir–and folks dressed up like Eskimos” (It is Mel Torme’s “The Christmas Song”). Or–what about: “Have a Holly Jolly Christmas–It’s The Best Time Of The Year” (These words written by Actor/Folk Singer Burl Ives). Or — what about 13 year old Jimmy Boyd saying, “I saw Mommy kissing Santa Clause underneath the misseltoe last night” (Three weeks after Jimmy Boyd’s song was released it was No. 1 on the Billboard Charts, selling 2 million records in fewer than 10 weeks!).

“It is indeed the songwriter who makes the musical world go round” says Renee Ashey Baker. “Without the songwriter, Daryl Hall and John Oates would have been without words or music to their unforgettably enjoyable Christmas video ‘Jingle Bell, Jingle Bell, Jingle Bell Rock’. Right?”

Renee Ashley Baker (a Blogger/Photographer) is hosting this first national “Original Christmas Song’ songwriting contest because (a) She wants to help undiscoverd songwriters and (b) She wants to help undiscovered songwriters….

Renee says, “All of my favorite songwriters are, of course, the brilliant ones like Cole Porter, The Bergmans, Neil Diamond, Barry Manilow, Daryl Hall, Dolly Parton etc etc etc….”

The winners of the “Original Christmas Song Songwriting Contest” will be selected by Renee Ashley Baker. All songs entered will remain the property of the songwriter/copyright holder. There is No entry fee. There is also No cash prize, No promise of publishng, and No recording contract offered. However, Renee has a popular Blog (“About Renee Ashley Baker On WordPress”) that is filled with 40 years of ‘rock music and pop music’. And–who knows when some web surfing ‘talent agent’ might click onto (and enjoy) Renee’s eclectic blogosphere meandersings….

How To Enter?
1. Open a MySpace account if you don’t already have one(You must be at least 17 years of age).
