Welcome to February, 2015!
This year has certainly come in with a "bang!" With all the world-wide crises, weather disasters (luckily not here in Central Virginia) and all the other events that occurred in January, I could use a calm February!
February is known as "Black History Month" and "American Heart Month", among others. And, we really do "kick-off" February this year. As we all know, the Super Bowl - and its accompanying commercials - will be played on Sunday, February 1st. On February 2nd, Groundhog Day will foretell the rest of winter, we celebrate Presidents Day on February 16th, Mardi Gras on the 17th, Ash Wednesday on the 18th and Chinese New Year on the 19th!
Don't forget your special someone on Valentine's Day on Saturday, February 14th! Have a great month and we'll see you back here in March!

Sponsor Spotlight - Sabor A Mexico Restaurant
Much to the delight of local residents of Louisa, especially those in Mineral, we have a wonderful new Mexican restaurant right in the heart of Mineral! For those who haven't discovered the rapidly-spreading secret, Sabor A Mexico is a taste treat not to be missed!
A family owned and operated business, local residents Olga and Jesus Lopez, along with daughter Diana, are serving up the best Mexican food around. Period. No more need to drive to the Town of Louisa to enjoy delicious, quality Mexican food!
Well, it's still COLD outside, no surprise there! But, here in Central Virginia we have some nice 50 degree days even in February, so no need to hibernate! There is plenty going on in our area this month. It's a great time to catch up on that mandatory Boater Safety class before the season starts!
If you are more in the mood to stay inside, you have your choice of many different options to stay busy. We have many concerts, classes and even Arena Racing to keep you busy! Check out our Community Calendar frequently for updates and enjoy the month!

This Mother Gets It
I begin this article with four disclaimers: 1) this month’s article is unashamedly borrowed. In my reading I sometimes come across an article or story, an excerpt, a book review or maybe a testimony that in my estimation is so good it begs to be shared; 2) Admittedly I am probably more “old school” than I care to admit (not that there is anything wrong with “old school” other than the sound of “old”). Some may think the values expressed in the lines below are out dated or even archaic. However, as you read, consider that the author is a wife and mother in her thirties; 3) I have made some edits that affect the length but not the impact; and, 4) I believe that one of the greatest blessings we have been given in our lifetime is family.

THE DISEASE DELUSION, BY JEFFREY S. BLAND, PH.D.
How could disease be a delusion? Are not diseases real? A disease is an abstract concept that ties all the symptoms and signs together for taxonomy purposes for insurance, and for legal purposes to limit the treatment of these conditions to qualified professionals. It is not a useful concept if it simplistically reduces a very complex process to a single name, when there are myriad manifestations of that “disease” in different people. Diabetes in one person isn’t the same as diabetes in another person. Treatment for one person with heart disease isn’t the best intervention for another person with heart disease. One size does not fit all. A more useful and effective model is needed.
A paradigm shift is now taking place, comparable in magnitude with the discovery of the germ theory and the ensuing historic hygiene and antibiotic era. This is functional medicine.
