Uninsured, self-insured, small business owner, confused about healthcare (um, yes, me too)? This talk might be useful.
Join Dr. Chad Krisel, Integrative Family Medicine of Asheville, for a discussion on the role of insurance in the United States health care system. How to best make use of it in an often times confusing system will be carefully attended to. We will talk of the important place that the direct medical care business model, of which Integrative Family Medicine is a variant of, will have for the future of primary and urgent care.
How all of this will affect the bottom line for us as individuals, employees, and small business owners will be discussed.
Where: Mojo Coworking at 60 North Market Street, Asheville, NC 28801
When: December 11, 2012 3:30pm

Think Milkman, but with produce, cheese, eggs, fish! Aye!
Now that we are all thinking about food this week, and gratitude, and farmers markets are closed for the season, have any of you tried Mother Earth Produce?
They deliver: organic produce (lots from 20 or so local farms), Roots hummus, Wild Salmon Company salmon (wha? yes, yes they do), Copper Pot and Wooden Spoon pickles and other sour yumminess, Balsam Gardens meats and eggs, Ashe County cheese TO YOUR FRONT DOOR in Western North or South Carolina!
Post a comment for a special discount code if you want to try them out–I gotcha! And, yes, they are in line with the cost of organic offerings at the local groceries. It’s really one of the things I’m so grateful for right now.

Listen to jazz, eat, drink and be merry while you support neighbors in need. Hosted by Mountain Housing Opportunities, The Housewarming Party benefits MHO’s Affordable Housing + Emergency Home Repair programs that serve underprivileged families in Buncombe County. Heavy hors d’oeuvres, beverages from The Merry Wine Market and New Belgium Brewery, and entertainment from the Butch Quisto Jazz Quartet comprise this charitable evening. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. on Friday, November 30. Tickets cost $55 per person, $100 per couple. For more, visit www.mtnhousing.org or call (828) 254-4030.
IF YOU CAN’T ATTEND (you can still help)–this is clever!
Throughout the holiday season and during the event, an online gift registry lets you donate housewarming gifts, including: as little as $2.50 for a roof shingle and up to as much as you like for appliances, furnaces, and more, that go directly to those in need. It’s just like a wedding registry, and can fit any budget—if we all give a little, it can go a long way. So, if you can’t make it to this event, please consider a donation of any amount here—there is no amount too small.

Asheville-based band Zansa and friends have organized West African nights held every Thursday in November (except Thanksgiving) at Bobo Gallery. Start time is 8 p.m. and the evening includes West African drumming and dancing by a variety of folks. Toward the end of the month, they hope to offer West African dinner as well.
The first one is tomorrow night, November 1. Check them out!
“Zansa” is a street word from the Ivory Coast meaning “a blend” and newly-formed Asheville-based electric West African ensemble Zansa (featuring members of Afromotive) is just that. The group mixes modern and traditional styles, African and American sounds, folk and Afropop, rock and reggae. Adama Dembele, a 33rd-generation djembe player from the Ivory Coast leads the group.
