THE ERMA FOUNDATION (TEF)

(Universal/MCA/DreamWorks and Warner Bros/Interscope will not be sitting on the “Board” of The Erma Foundation….(Universal/MCA has “organized crime” back and Warner Bros/Interscope has “the Crips”)….Click on the Lady’s photo below to visit The Erma Foundation website…

The LADY Behind The Soldier was my Mother–the beautiful Mrs. A/B– aka Erma (pictured above wearing “gold”!)…It was she (my Mother) who “signed papers” so that my brother (James) could enlist in the Military at age 17. My brother [JAMES] spent 25 years in the U.S. Air Force…. (My brother James also was friends with a “real” DuPont, he did “special work” for the U.S. Secret Service and he ran a “department” for the city of New York).

The above photos were taken in Germany (I believe) inside the “barracks” and in front of an “EMBASSY” or a “CONSULATE”….

(My brother James grew up in St. Louis Missouri…Meaning that–my brother (James) started “Kindergarten” in St. Louis Missouri and St. Louis Missouri is where he my brother (James) enlisted in the U.S. Air Force)

St Louis Missouri

Below are some things for MEN who are “retired from the military”. Below are some things my brother “JAMES” liked….

Neff closet

1. A TAILORED WARDROBE
My brother James was a “shoe horse”. He always, always wore “expensive” shoes. The Neff wardrobe (above) has a “sophisticated functionality” (notice the elegant leather trim on the shelves ?).

and….

rocking chair from furniturehomedesign

2. A ROCKING CHAIR
My brother James had a “Brentwood Rocker”. This “rocking chair” is both a rocker and a “sculpture”. It is for the MAN who has everything.

and….

Bang Olufsen Beo Sound

3. A SUPERIOR STEREO SYSTEM
My brother James “loved” his music (but he hated “rap music”). Above is the cool looking “Beo Sound by Bang & Olufsen”. It is for that “real cool cat!”…..

and….

Canvas Pop wall art

4. A PHOTOGRAPH
My brother James loved his cameras (His German Leica and his Pentax). My brother James loved to “take pictures”. CanvasPop turns personal photos into beautiful canvas art pieces.

and….

Gladiator Garage Compactor

5. A GLADIATOR
My brother James was a Gladiator (aka a Soldier who fought in Viet Nam). The Gladiator Garage Compactor condenses the amount of recycled material you’ll have to sit curbside each week.

and…..

Phillip Jeffries Kitty Hawk Aviator Wall Tile

6. A HOME SWEET HOME
My brother James loved his home (two “white lions” stood guard at the front steps of my brother James’ house). If you need wall covering, for say a “home office”, try Phillip Jeffries “Aviator” wall coverings (shown above is “Kitty Hawk Copper” and shown below is the “USS Kitty Hawk” ON TAKE OFF!).

USS Kitty Hawk

and….

Q Ball Connection by Atmosphere

7. THE PLANET
My brother James was a MAN who got to “see the world”. He got to, as they say, “travel the world over”. Above is the “Q-Ball Connection by Atmosphere”. It is an illuminated globe that shows international phone and internet codes for every country. (sold at DWR.com)

Judge clip art

RE: ROBIN THICKE
I’ve been “verbally harassed” “verbally bothered” (by some Denver “bums”) about Robin Thick. Who the HELL is Robin Thicke? I’ve never purchased any of his “songs” and now–I will not be doing so. In my opinion Robin Thick is a “thief and a sissy”. I now realize that there is a “group of bums” around who are “extorting” for the “married to’s” (aka the “nobodys” married to Brittany Spears or married to whomever). If Robin Thicke isn’t “man” enough to “do his own work” then he must be made–by the courts–to LEAVE ALONE the work of “The Legends”. (I want the Federal Judges to make Robin Thick get his “poor hands” off of Marvin Gaye’s work !!!).

FOR    IRELAND….

              Back in the mid- 1980’s  I was planning  some type of production–I can’t remember now what it was –probably a video or a “short short film”–and I ran an ad in the Denver newspaper for actors.   So –this young man answers my ad.   He  showed up at my house–he was blonde,  blue eyed and wearing his hair like the lead singer from the English rock band  “A Flock of Seagulls”.   (Who at the time were very ‘hot’ ).    I asked this young  ‘actor’   if he’d ever acted in anything before–he was honest–and told me he hadn’t but that  he had just come from an audition with a Director he had never heard of.   Some guy,  he said,  who had produced a movie in Denver called “The Return of the Secaucus Seven”.   So–that was my introduction to the wonderful John Sayles–who later–directed one of my favorite movies “The Secret of Roan Innish”.  And now–this morning– I see on TV one of my new ‘favorite’ actors talking about another film set in Ireland–with a mystical, magical  story line—another “Silkie” story from the Emerald Isle.    So–SHOUT OUT to Colin Farrell –your new movie “Ondine”   looked –shall I say–“enchanting”?….               (I, Renee Ashley Baker, am  considering writing Colin Farrell into my motion picture story line.  A motion picture that I might have produced–if–it is produced at Paramount, 20th Century or The Weinstein Company.  The title?    “The Story of  ABLE “.    Casting?  How about Colin Farrell and Charlize Theron?….)

QUIZ: 

GUESS   WHO  HAS  KNOWN  RENEE  ASHLEY  BAKER’S  FAMILY  SINCE  RENEE ASHLEY  BAKER  WAS  AN   INFANT? 

 

 

 (scroll down for answer)

 

 

BACK STORY:    The story, as it was told to me, goes as follows:  Tina Turner and her sister were at a St. Louis night club one night (Tina’s sister long had had aspirations of being a singer).  Anyway, the crowd in the night club began clammoring for Tina’s sister to ‘get up on the stage and sing’.  She WOULDN’T.    So–Tina stood up and said, “I’ll sing”.    Tina then  jumped up on the stage and began singing.    IKE was in the audience….           Soon after — Ike got a record contract with ‘Sun Records’ and the rest, as they say, is history….

BACK STORY TO THE BACK STORY:  Years later, in the early 1980’s  I, Renee Ashley Baker, did a face to face INTERVIEW with Tina  Turner at the old ‘Turn of the Century’ night club (in southeast Denver).    REMEMBER  TINA?    You offered me a safety pin when I tore the ___that I was wearing.  (I had taken my camera to ‘get some photos’ of  Tina.    I was doing my ‘squat down thing’–when — well–  needless to say — I DON’T do that  squat down thing  anymore!      I now stand to take all photos)…. Anyway, to continue —  TINA TURNER  was a ‘teenager’ in St. Louis when my family (my mother and my father)  knew her.    TINA’S   sister never became a singer–she instead went on to take a job with the U.S. Military  (Department of Defense) –the  aerospace industry–in California.    TINA  TURNER,  as we all know—is still beltin em out for  CAPITOL  EMI records and is still living in the  ‘south of France’  with her German boyfriend/producer. . . .

“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)

HISTORY: BELATED VETERAN’S DAY

November 26, 2008

  

VETERAN: NOW  KNOWN…. 

                                       tomb-of-the-unknown-soldier

                              Renee’s Unkown Soldier

The “Unknown Serviceman” of Vietnam was  buried on May 28, 1984.  In  June 1998 his body was disinterred  and DNA-testing  technology was  used  to identify  him as First Lt. Michael Blassie,  an Air Force Pilot  from St. Louis Missouri. It is possible  that present DNA Technology  will prevent there  from ever   being   another “unknown” burried in the tomb.

The inscription  carved  on the “Tomb of  the Unknown” is:

                    Here  Rests 

                In Honored  Glory

                An  America  Soldier
