TO:  Daily Variety, The Hollywood Reporter, The New York Times, Entertainment Tonight, RadarOnline.com, SplashNews.com, Popeater.com, AFI, NYU(Film School) and AMPAS:

FROM:  Renee Ashley Baker

I, RENEE ASHLEY BAKER,  will not be doing any motion picture projects with Talia Shire, Carmine Coppola, Sophia Coppola, Francis Ford Coppola, nor Nicolas Cage.   Having said that–I will now tell you a story—as follows:  

YEARS AGO, I came to meet someone (a WOMAN) who talked incessantly about a very famous person (A  HISTORICAL FIGURE) whom she said she felt a strong “connection” to.    She–“this WOMAN”– talked also about herself and about how she was “connected to”   (related to)  a very famouos showbusiness family (The Coppolas).    This WOMAN continued to talk telling me something even more astonishing:  That she — and her children–had been involved in a landmark State Supreme Court Case in a state located in the southern part of the United States.    A court case  that involved what they used to  call “race relations”.    A  court case that would –even now–astonish the world.   I do NOT know whether this WOMAN  actually is a relative of the Coppola family–I do believe (after recently watching “Godfather I”  and  “Godfather III”  on television)  that Sophia Coppola should portray “this WOMAN”  in a motion picture.    That Sophia Coppola should also write and direct this motion picture.    Although I wish to have NO  involvement with the project–Sophia  Coppola should title the motion picture “HOW THE  HUMMINGBIRD FLIES”. . . . 

  Strange as it seems 

  Frozen in time 

  Both a yes and a no

  Both the truth and a lie

  Strange as it seems

  An astonishment to the eyes 

  Frozen in mid-air 

 Is how the Hummingbird flies….

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

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.

“SOLDIER’S DAUGHTER”
BY
RENEE ASHLEY BAKER

I, Renee Ashey Baker, am a “soldier’s daughter”…. I, Renee Ashley Baker, am an Army Brat (and an Air Force Brat)…. My father–Mr. Ashley–was an Army soldier and was awarded “good conduct medals”. (My father–Mr. Ashley–served in the Korean War). My mother–Mrs. Ashley–was a “soldier’s wife” and my mother–Mrs. Ashley–was a “soldier’s mother” (as my brother “James” served 20 years in the U.S. Air Force during which time he did “secret work” for the U.S. Secret Service)….. I, Renee Ashley Baker, fondly remember many childhood days spent on U.S. Military bases. I, Renee Ashley BAker, remember being on Scott Air Force Base (in St. Louis Missouri) attending “air shows” (on holidays) and going “grocery shopping” at the “PX” (every weekend). I, Renee Ashley Baker, remember happy teenage days “recreating” on Lowry Air Force Base (in Denver, Colorado) at the on base ‘bowling alley’ and at the on base ‘movie theatre’. I, Renee Ashley Baker (as an adult–as a young woman) worked on U.S. Military bases. I, Renee Ashley Baker, was employed at the U.S. Air Force Finance Center (located on old Smith Road in Denver). I, Renee Ashley Baker, was also emplyed at the old Veteran’s Hospital as a GS-2 and later got promoted to a GS-3….(I was a clerk-typist)…I, Renee Ashley Baker, am now and always will be proud to have come from a “military family”.

NOW BELOW….SOURCES OF SUPPORT FOR SOLDERS AND FOR VETERANS….

Blue Star Help: From Ollie and Donald Moran

I. MAIL DAY
Soldier’s helper Ollie, says, “The soldiers on deploy, especially in Afghanistan, look forward to “mail day”. So–why not show our soldiers how much we appreciate them fighting for our “Freedom” ? Why not send a soldier a greeting card? A “greeting card” will bring a smile to a soldier’s face on mail day”.

(Renee Ashley Baker’s Aside: “Hey public school teachers–why not have your student’s make “greeting cards’ on Veterans’ Day and send them to our soldiers overseas? Call it “CFS Day”. That is “Card’s For Soldier’s Day”….)

II. WHAT ELSE DO SOLDIERS NEED?
Soldier’s helper Ollie says there are many other things that soldiers over seas need. A “care package” containing one or more of the following items would really help:
1. Boot Socks (made of Alpaca wool)
2. Crystal Lite drink packets or Disney drink packets (they help bottle field water taste better)
3. Snacks Like: Nabisco 100 Calorie Packets or 8-20 Mini Coockie Packs
4. Spices (Great way for kids to help as they can take $1 from their piggy bank and buy a ‘spice’ ath the Safeway or Albertson’s Supermarket)
5. DVD’s (Movies
6. Video Games
