Lake Anna Veterinary Hospital
Dr. Daniel Slovis has brought to our community a much needed state-of-the-art animal veterinary hospital - right here in Mineral, VA! Lake Anna Veterinary Hospital, located at 11012 Kentucky Springs Road, officially opened its doors on April 11, 2011. Since then, Dr. Slovis has added two additional veterinarians to handle the volume of happy pet owners parading into Lake Anna Veterinary Hospital, Dr. William Holcomb and Dr. Rebecca Pocock. We are all very fortunate to have these great doctors and staff at this wonderful facility in our area.
As soon as you walk through the front door of the Lake Anna Veterinary Hospital, you know this is no ordinary veterinary hospital. The spacious and sparkling reception area greets you with welcoming seats and even a freshly-made cup of coffee, if you like. A friendly staff member immediately greets you and efficiently completes any necessary paperwork to expedite your pet’s care. The Lake Anna Veterinary Hospital mission statement is, “To Cultivate a loyal and growing clientele by utilizing advanced technology and compassionate care for you and your pet.”

The "Manager's Specials"
This is the kind of thing that seems to happen most often to others but not me. So, you can imagine how surprised I was to pull into the parking lot and actually find a parking space close to the front of the grocery store (note: I know I have written about grocery stores previously, but this is different). I was on a mission. I had a short list of items enumerated in the text message from Cathy. There was clear hurriedness to my pace. I quickly pulled my items off the shelves and deposited them into the cart (I almost called the cart a buggy because carts are called buggies where I was raised). The last item on my list was milk – ½ gallon of skim milk. When I got to the dairy case and opened the door I noticed an unusual label on some of the jugs of milk. The label read “Manager’s Special”. But it was the price that caught me off guard – $.25. That’s right, 25 cents for a half gallon of milk. I immediately looked for the expiration date expecting it to be that day but it wasn’t. The expiration date was 5 days later. I must confess that in my skepticism I almost put it back on the shelf but I did not. It must be a trick, but it wasn’t. This half gallon of skim milk was almost free. I admit that I was not fully convinced that it was “special” until I twisted off the cap and did a taste test. It was fresh. I was surprised and grateful for this “Manager’s Special”.

A BOOK REVIEW OF FOOD RULES, BY MICHAEL POLLAN
Are you confused about low-fat, low-carb, vegan, vegetarian, paleo, food-combining, blood-type diets, etc.? Our confusion is financially profitable for the “Food Industrial Complex” because that distracts us from eating real foods and provides opportunity to market to us all manner of specially designed foods supposed to make us healthier.
Food Rules, an Eater’s Manual, a number one New York Times best seller, is a timely manifesto for real food in contrast to “edible substances that resemble food.”
Michael Pollan is a journalist who has written many books about food and food production, many from a scientific perspective. He has taken many principles common to these “diets” which appear to be in conflict with each other and condensed them into a concise, clever, simple, practical presentation of recommendations for eating, also gleaning from the folk wisdom of our grandmothers that is consistent with modern science. This is a small, (140 page, almost pocket-size), easy to read presentation of 64 “rules.”
