Following is the press release I sent out concerning my prediction of the Gandalf's fire, which I warned them about the preceding spring. There were many potentials for disaster, and fire was but one of them. A lot of astrological work would have been necessary to find several possible disaster times and analyze each one of them to hone down the potentials of that particular time. I told them all of this, and I offered to work with them for free to prevent it, yet they refused to accept my help. Here is the article:

Happy Day News Services

A Frostburg astrologer and feng shui consultant, who calls himself "Erik the Vermilion", gave two reports to the employees of Gandalf's Pub last spring, 2003. Both of these reports were reportedly shown to the management of Gandalf's. Both of the Gandalf's reports warned of danger to the Gandalf's property, specifically there was warning of a danger from fire. Erik the Vermilion said that he offered to work with Gandalf's for free to track the stellar influences for the future, and thus to prevent the disaster, but that his offer was not taken seriously.

Here are quotations from Erik the Vermilion's feng shui report about Gandalf's:
"The Kitchen: For those who ... work in the kitchen, the a sha (killing) room, according to the invisible energy there."

"There is some danger...from stirring up the sha-qi by so much activity there."

"To make this room to be auspicious, the door would have to be moved, and the ceiling would have to be made even."

"Curing the negativity in the kitchen - the best way would be to relocate the door. Unfortunately, this would probably entail changing the entire layout of the areas surrounding the kitchen on the main-street side of it, as well as rearranging all of the furniture therein."

The following quotation is about a particular area of the kitchen: "This is the area holding the rearward part of the working tables. It occupies perhaps two thirds of the kitchen. It is an inauspicious area....It conduces to the lives of those who spend much time in the area. For them, extraordinary caution is advised, and of its denizens has already been made homeless by a fire."

"Examples of the Fulfillment of these Foretellings: Case 2: Two of the cooks and one of the regular patrons were rendered homeless by a fire in their abode. The fire was contained in the bedroom of the cook who spent the most time in the back area of the kitchen [Gandalf's kitchen -- this was the area giving danger from fire], and the other two victims were driven out of their house by the loss of heating caused by the fire, if I am not mistaken. The cook, in whose room the fire took place, was born with a birth's star that is exhausted by Gandalf's. You can see him often being exhausted there, he often has the exhausted look, while the workers in the kitchen, who may have different birth-stars, bedroom door directions, karma, and so on, do not usually look to be so exhausted as does he.

"The particular area of the kitchen in which he spends most of his time while working contains the warning: `extraordinary caution is advised'

"The yearly stars at the door of Gandalf's and at the door of the bar, where the said cook also spends much time, are stars that "Ke" (Chinese="kill") the cook's birth's star. The yearly star at the door of the game-room is the most hazardous star, that can cause any manner of misfortune.

"The other cook, who was victim to the fire, was born the same year as was the primary victim, and, so, his birth's star is the same, and that increases his vulnerability. I did not learn the birth's year of the third victim, prior to the production deadline of this lovely booklet, and, so cannot say what his year's star might be."

The following quotations show the positive side of Erik the Vermilion's feng shui report:
"Case 3: The combination of stars at the main doors of Gandalf's, and also specifically affecting the restaurant and the barroom, are the stars of scholarship, literary success, and creativity. To any Frostburger, it shouldn't need to be said that by far the bulk of the scholars, successful writers, and creative people of Frostburg foregather in Gandalf's."

"Case 4: My birth's star is the star of writing and documents. According to the list of effects for Gandalf's as a whole, for the restaurant, and for the barroom, the denizens of those places will write more, if the indication is confirmed by other considerations. My birth's star is a confirmation. I haven't written much for several years, but now that I have been spending lot time in those places, I have written numerous horoscope reports, and also this booklet."

So much for the feng shui report. Now let's look at the astrology report:

"Steps must be taken - ...steps will have to be taken to prevent a disaster involving Gandalf' that you will know for what to be alert..., I shall give some information.

"Who Will be Involved - It appears to me that it will involve all the people who work at Gandalf's....Unreliable people without discipline and order, excited about a nuisance, and rebelling against corruption I will expect to be involved. Elders and youngers are both likely involved."

"What Will be Affected - It would affect the property or building of Gandalf's, and...its condition...; any speculative enterprise going on at that time; any political involvement, the reputation, credit, and power of Gandalf's; any social doings that are related to the professional affairs of Gandalf's would also be affected; relationships with other organizations. Insurance or taxes may be concerned."

"What Might Happen...

"Concern over finances and budget. Difficulty over budget....
"Malfunction [the furnace malfunctioning was the cause of the fire]
"Increased inharmonious interaction with those in Gandalf's domestic environment....Shared suffering. Disruption...of the group.
"Public relations, bad publicity, private affairs coming to public notice.
"Legal involvement.
"Fatigue, sickness, lack of vitality....
"Public disgrace, fall from power, discredit.
"Lack of trade, opportunity, or security; failure,....Inhibited development. Compelled by circumstances to be modest and simple.
"Danger of...bereavement.
"Probable loss of property
"Changes unfortunate. Test and trial.
"Mysterious circumstance. Occult experiences [these reports]."

Erik the Vermilion said in his report, "I have wished to help folks to prevent disasters in their lives, using astrology, which I can do....

"Before I go into the foretelling and prevention for Gandalf's, let me tell to you two cases' histories.

"The first one I told a mother to watch out for the safety of her baby on a particular day [it was in a particular two-hour period]. I told her [two weeks] in advance. When the day came, she had forgotten about the warning, and the Daddy caused the baby to fall on her head from a car's seat [onto the pavement] while she was being laden into the car. Had the Mommie remembered the day, she could have been watching the baby more carefully, or even asked the Daddy to be more careful with her.

"Another example is a horse-breeder in Romney, West Virginia. He was to be wedded, and, so, for his wedding present I gave to him a disaster prevention phase two. [Phase one deals with habits and lifestyle, based upon the person's birth's chart. Phase two considers the timing of the danger.] The nearest time of danger was on his wedding day. I was not invited to the wedding, so I gave the gift to a mutual friend, whom I knew would see the groom the night before the wedding, so that he could read the report, and be more careful the next day. The courier did not give the document to the groom, and so, he was not forewarned. After drinking liberally, he was asked to mount one of his horses with his tuxedo, to be videotaped. The girth was loose, and he fell off of the horse and had to be hospitalized. Had he been forewarned, he could have drunken less, and been more careful in adjusting his tack."

Erik the Vermilion has declared that, due to the immense amount of time it takes to prepare these reports, and the lack of being taken seriously, henceforward he will do them only for paying customers. The URL of his website is Erik is the author of two feng shui booklets, "Feng Shui of Western Maryland" and "Feng Shui for House Hunters", both available through him.

Here is the commentary of one of the kitchen workers who read the above press release:

Erik, i have read your report and it is remarkable.
Much of it is so true, and I do remember that you warned of trouble a long time ago
and that people were mad at you for it.

I also bought a copy of that report at the time and tonight i'll look at it again.
Well, I'd like to buy a feng shui report sometime in the coming months.
what are the rates?
wait maybe they're on the site.
talk to you soon.
