What is unfortunate here, is that, many of the potent and necessary ingredients to a Cancer Cure and Immune System Maintenance that we HU-MANs (click) can utilise at times like this… (click) are not at all suitable for OUR PETS.

Intolerance, allergies, poisons and so forth (click).

The approach for PETS mainly involves Dietary Changes with the judicial addition of a select few…

ANTI-BACTERIAL,.. ANTI-VIRAL,.. NON-CARCINOGENIC and NON-MUTAGENIC ingredients and solutions.

Though there is somewhat CONFLICTING DATA online concerning the proper ones required (click) …

the Shiro+co selection is also based on past experience.

 

A Trio of Trouble for Cancer we hope indeed.

 

 HOW TO RID

 THOSE SLIPPERY CANCER BLUES.

 THE SILVER LINING.

 

  • COLLOIDAL SILVER.

 

  • SLIPPERY ELM.

 

  • BAKING SODA.

 

SILVER... BULLION,.. PRE COLLOIDAL STATE.

SILVER… BULLION,.. PRE COLLOIDAL STATE.

 

ELM... TREE,.. PRE SLIPPERY STATE.

ELM… TREE,.. PRE SLIPPERY STATE.

 

These three are all relatively easy to find in most large health shops and online (click).

With a long and safe usage history (click).

 

  • LIQUID COLLOIDAL SILVER ( 30ppm).

 

  • SLIPPERY ELM POWDER

 

  • BAKING SODA POWDER

 

Basically added to everything the CATS eat and drink and a solution of Silver sprayed around too.

This is via a (boiled) WATER diluted spray-bottle solution, onto his AREAS of concern, bedding, plants, wounds and so forth.

The cats watering-hole containers now contain a similar SILVERY COLLOIDAL something solution alkalised by the BAKING SODA.

Anti-Cancer WATER it seems.

OOPS... WRONG BOOKMARK... WILL SHIRO BE IN DEEP WATER OVER AND UNDER THIS INDEED.?. LEGEND TOO... THOUGH A LIL WET... BEHIND THE EARS IT SEEMS.

TRICK... OR TREAT.?.

TRICK… OR TREAT.?.

For those with an interest,.. a POTENT yet practical periodical though OCCASIONAL only TREAT for pet CATS at a time like this is…

MAPLE SYRUP + BAKING SODA.

The syrup provides the vehicle per se for a ALKALINE shot of natural sweetness that contains valuable cell nutrients in a medium the CANCER cannot access,..

due to ph etc… and thus cancels cancer (click).

The cell continues on… Cancer free it seems.

Sweet indeed.

CATS are venerated within many Cultures.

EGYPT,.. a prime example. So too in JAPAN.

 

SCIENCE too has clawed it’s way into the Modern CAT Culture.

Given the Title of FELIS CATUS,.. of course indeed (click).

 

Examining the past evidence it seems the CAT has LET US adopt it as a PET for some 12000 yrs.+ (click) Recent findings indicate a likely ancestor at this time of the domesticated cat may be the MIDDLE EASTERN WILDCAT,.. FELIS SYLVESTRIS.

Cat domestication appears a side-effect of their purr persistent pursuing of pestilence. Mice and Rats particular quarry.

Seems THE CATS tolerate HU-MANS… ‘cos,.. the rent-free cohorts of rodents and such-like… that accompany us.!?.

By the Cat’s Whisker indeed (click)… are yum in Cat’s tum.

 

Mechanisms of Society provide a continuous FOOD supply, whether vis direct from us or elsewhere AND we tend to discourage wild-cat numbers whilst adding to domestic.

 

So the SCIENCE LEGENDS say…

Shiro too.

 

MORE AND MORE INDEED... THE CAT THAT WAVES.

MORE AND MORE INDEED… THE CAT THAT WAVES.

 

In the days of yore the safe-keeping of property and person was oft of prime importance. There were no sensors, detectors and alarm systems…

‘cept for those attached to one’s body.

 

TEMPLES and such-like were Community Buildings and sites that oft contained many objects and articles of historical and varied provenance and value.

Regularly visited by many of the public and many too of LEGENDARY concern.

 

 THE CAT’s CLAW n WAVE.

GUARDIANS of such locales were kept busy and some attained Fame for such as DEFENSIVE and protective measures, incidents and accidents of various natures.

This CATTY LEGEND retells how lives can interact and even be changed,..

simply with a GREETING…

with just,..

 

A WAVE.

 NO,.. IT’S CAT-GUARD.!.

 THE LEGEND retold.

 

 A WARRIOR APPROACHES…

BAD WEATHER TOO.

There was little in the air at first, that told of the impending change in weather. This day, thus far, was clear and mild.

The country path-ways and surrounds to the nearby GOTOKU-JI TEMPLE were green and busy, each to their appointed tasks and chores it seemed (click).

 

The WARRIOR though, stopped still in his tracks and adjusted his collar.

 

A sharp wind had chilled the neck.

Something,.. somewhere felt off.

SOMETHING CATastrophic HEADED HIS SAMURAI WAY IT SEEMS. WILL HE... GET THE HINT.?. WILL HE GET... THE WAVE.?.

SOMETHING CATastrophic HEADED HIS SAMURAI WAY IT SEEMS. WILL HE… GET THE HINT.?. WILL HE GET… THE WAVE.?.

Like a distant enemy who approaches.

Then, even that fleeting fancy,.. also fled.

 

Putting faith in his senses, the WARRIOR told himself…

 

what it was he had felt- ’twas no danger-

just keep alert… storms maybe in the air ahead indeed.

 

A matter of some urgency called for him to go far and long this day.

He looked around, slowly,..

as if surveying the landscape and trying to impress the images inwardly. The JAPANESE Countryside is oft an awesome NATURE display. Greenery abounds,

with lines of silver shimmer as the light reflects off watery streams and ravines as they wind down the Mountain-side.

 

This WARRIOR had much to be thankful for, as this Land had also now,..

become his to protect.

 

Now,..

A Feudal Lord of EDO JAPAN (click) was his WAY it seems.

Moving on now, a lil more hurriedly,..

as the well-trodden path slowly curved and turned to reveal a large gateway ahead in the distance.

THE TEMPLE.

 

Already on his planned route,.. thus no turning back…

fortune and luck indeed. Shelter and sanctuary too.

 

GOTOKUJI TEMPLE.

 

Timely shelter,..

 

and with the company of renowned Buddhist Priests (click) to boot.

 

BUDDHISM,.. A VISUAL.

BUDDHISM,.. A VISUAL.

 

This Lord and WARRIOR had studied well and long, as had many of his ilk.

Knew and respected the learning skills ( + other..)

and loved too the sharing of knowledge amongst such scholars and soldiers that these Priests were and had been.

 

Renowned and regaled were their Libraries, their Gardens

and the added sublime taste and joy

of Mountain born TEA.

BUDDHIST KNOWLEDGE INDEED.

The wind had indeed changed;

stronger,

both cooler and wetter too.

 

As the first large rain-drops splattered onto path,..

both collar and more..

The sky clouds burst,.. seemingly and maybe matter of factly, right above his head, as the TEMPLE GATES loomed larger in his sight.

Ahead, the TEMPLE darkened,..

 

now misted and nestled in his sight as he head-tilted to angle rain sluices away. The sound of the storm had deepened too now, vibrating menacingly in the skies above.

 

This storm was setting indeed.

The path,.. his path,

quickly turning moist, wet slippery treacherous ground

squelching underfoot.

As not so long before… he-

 

stopped still- and watched.

The WARRIOR smiled and nodded as he looked at the TEMPLE CAT THAT WAVES.

 

Remembering his earlier thoughts,..

and as if in a trance he stepped forward surely and knowingly;

 

as if DESTINY,..

or the CAT, had just tinkled his i-phone…

or the Samurai equiv. thereof.

 

Slightly off-path the CAT WAVED him on…

urging him to weather this weather,..

only from the inside this time.

As the WARRIOR slid to a stop and turned;

under cover at least now,.. the LIGHTNING BOLT STRUCK.

 

Where,..

he originally was and had been.

 

Till a quick-witted… CAT,.. HAD WAVED HIM SAFELY INSIDE.

 

LEGEND IN DEED and in fact.

 

A powerfully raw smell of NATURE filled the WARRIOR’s breath, replacing the oxygen therein. The immense sizzling and sonic sound still echoing,.. 

was all he could hear.

Grimacing briefly as he dwelled a lil’ on the thought of the rather dishonorable and dastardly death event that he had missed by a CAT’s whisker

cos he had noted indeed…

standing still, next to A CAT.!?

His grin took on further knowing and he acted accordingly.

 

Turning at last, face to face,

mano ā mano…?…

 

well… actually;

All we can do is watch…and learn.

We lit this fire in 1962

a Year of the TIGER and Shiro’s birth btw-

and still,..the Town of  CENTRALIA burns.

 

 HOW WE SET

 THIS

 TOWN ON FIRE

 THE LEGEND

 OF CENTRALIA BURNS.

 

How we set this town on fire.

The LEGEND now an integral part of MANKIND’s History with FIRE.

A town–the whole town.

On fire…in ’62.

Still burning…in 2017

sad ?

…tis true.

 FIRED UP…

 

MANKIND’s use of FIRE and it’s inherent ENERGY is obvious.

For Home and Industry.

 

Without it, things would be difficult and different indeed.

Not to mention darker…

!?..ok,

ok i just did mention dat. Oh well…let FIRE light the ways

 THE FIERY ELEMENT…

 

SHIRO’s introduction to FIRE via the MARTIAL ART TRADITION came two ways and on two levels.

Mental & Physical.

Through the concept of ‘ elements ‘ within NINPO/BUDO Philosophy (click) & a ‘ training exercise ‘.

In a FIRE-Pit. In the backyard.

…WE BE HOT TONIGHT FELLOWS…S. ED LOMAX & SHIRO WERE SHARING HOUSE ACCOMODATION WHEREBY THE PROPERTY HAD A BBQ PIT MADE BY PREVIOUS TENANTS ETC…AT AN IMPROMPTU TRAINING SESSION THAT DEVELOPED ONE AFTERNOON and continued into the NIGHT…THE soon lengthened FIRE-PIT TAUGHT US ALL SOME FIERY LESSONS…indeed.                   Singed or not mostly singed though.

 

 INNER AND OUTER FIRE

 

FIRE..; with WATER, EARTH, AIR and VOID are…

both philosophical & practical ‘ elements ‘ of/in NATURE.

In bare and basic terms;

they can each represent a state of mind (in a fiery mood) or a state of being (on fire) =

the ELEMENT OF FIRE.

 

Just depends on the  ‘ nature ‘ of the topic discussed… Philosophical or Practical.

Inner or outer…Fiery stuff indeed.

So too is it then practical,

to practice and train with the ELEMENTS...

in this case–

to move and jump with and thru FIRE in various ways.

 

FIRE’s ENERGY is learnt first-hand…and singe burns heal quick;

though head-hair takes a lil longer it seems.

 

CENTRALIA however, is now more than singed.

 

This FIRE we lit in ’62,…

has consumed much more than just the stuff of it’s DREAMS.

 CENTRALIA BURNS…

 

Burn-offs and back-burns, are a sometimes necessary approach to help lower the Summer Bush-Fire potential. When properly controlled and contained that is.

 

Situated in the US State of PENNSYLVANIA, Columbia County;

the township of Centralia began per se in 1854, a prime Coal Mining site.

A populace of some 2,ooo gradually called this place Home.

 

The Anthracite Coal extracted enabled this town to boom and blossom; for a while. (click)

ANTHRACITE COAL…is Carbon densely packed. This makes it somewhat harder than most other coals and also, harder too to light, in that more oxygen is required to allow combustion. However…if the conditions are right-this Coal burns rather clean and fiercely with little contaminants/pollutants because of it’s high inherent Carbon and thus is capable of great eventual HEAT output for the same reasons… MANKIND has used this element/mineral for a long time.

COAL RESERVES/AMOUNTS IN THE SURROUNDING REGIONS…according to the reference noted above…THERE IS OVER 6 BILLION TONS IN ONE MOUNTAIN RANGE ALONE…not to mention…but i will…and THAT DOES NOT INCLUDE THE ANDES OR ROCKY MOUNTAINS SO… LOTSA COAL THERE IS. IN LOTSA PLACES. HOPEFULLY NOT BURNING ALREADY…LIKE CENTRALIA’s.

tis carving time...

COAL…The Natural processes that formed ANTHRACITIC COAL were of relatively high, yet even temp and pressure. This ‘ compactness ‘ &  ‘ stability ‘ means too…you can ‘ work ‘ it… though perhaps keep away from Shiro’s cigars.

 

THE LEGEND OF–:

 HOW WE SET THIS

 TOWN ON FIRE.

 

In MAY of 1962; a routine burn-off set CENTRALIA alight.

A local sanitation crew were determined to get rid of the town’s potential threats. As the foliage in the selected area withered under their blaze and gaze…

their error of choice shone through too.

Beneath lay the entrance to a disused shaft.

Beneath lay Coal.

Mixing FLAME and COAL in such a way allowed the initial access to large/ample amounts of fresh air/Oxygen which then eventually produced combustion OF THE COAL…AND COAL SEAM and thus…

 

lit a FIRE under the very Foundations of the Town itself.

 

CENTRALIA was now atop a burning mountain sized lump of COAL,

atop and alight indeed…

a LEGEND OF FIRE appears…CENTRALIA burns.

…FIRE PLAY..?

 

The only safe and long-term option, when playing with fire

is to move away.

Or put it out.

 

Burning wherever the Coal seam led and went, livelihood too, soon became problematical. No Canary in the Coal Mine could help now.

Smoke, pollution, sudden flare-ups, pit-hole formations and the propensity for houses to catch fire became the norm.

Several photos herein show the potential for danger and devastation.

Flooding the mine was not a possible option and the several FIRE-FIGHT attempts were simply overwhelmed by their task. As Time and FIRE raged on, the towns people eventually were put out, moved out and away.

The FIRE stayed. ON.

Since 1962.

CENTRALIA,.. soon enough was left to BUrn itself out…one day…someday.

We hope.

Still smolderin’ CENTRALIA…

 

A 2013 Census raincheck indicates some 7 people

still ‘ live ‘ ( +survive…thus far ) in the surrounds of this burning TOWN of FIRE.

 

It appears CENTRALIA’s supporters…are warm-hearted folk indeed…

though their ZIP CODE was unzipped by… hot-headed officialdom long ago it seems (click) .

WELCOME TO CENTRALIA…OR NOT.

 

 THE FIERY LEGEND

 OF CENTRALIA.

 

 CENTRALIA.

On top…a country town. A boom mining town.
