1 & 2.  Nancy Rogers and Shirley Slack discuss with Elaine their emergency responses in the first night of the Wild Fire Storm Disaster that desroyed whole neighborhoods in the city of Santa Rosa  and large rural areas in the county in a matter of hours whipped by near hurricane level winds carrying smoke, ash and ambers.  Nancy Rogers and Elaine live across each other as neighbors in a Northwest Santa Rosa, 2 1/2 miles south from the Coffey Park neighborhood razed by the Tubbs Fire.They recount how they learn of the fire, and attempts to ascertain their safety and gather emergency items like flashlights, candles and radios that are battery powered.  The normal electricity powered lives would be discontinued for 5 days, along with down cell phone towers for hampered internet connections.  Shirley Slack, Nancy’s cousin, recounts how she was able to evacuate guests at the Sandman Hotel by the freeway, during the fire threat in that area of town east of our neighborhood by a couple of miles.  Of course, they all report on how they made these decisions and how next time they would be better prepared.


3. Dr. Ed Bauman talks about some of the dangers to our health because of this Wild Fire that destroyed homes, business buildings, crops and forests. He shares with us some nutritional tips to help our liver and lungs, including his recipe for a tasty tonic beverage to protect the mucous membranes, lungs and nerves from toxic smoke.

Blended Respiratory Remedy
2 oz aloe gel or juice
2 Tbs flax, hemp or chia seeds (can be whole or ground seeds)
2 Tbs fresh basil, thyme or mint or 1 Tbs of the dried herbs
2 Tbs maple syrup, honey or pitted dates
1 whole lemon
1 quart water, coconut water, herb or green tea

It’s still good even if you can’t get all of the listed ingredients.
