Good morning UND! Looking real nice outside with a high of 78!
I know everyone is stressed out about school, work, life well…. I have a little advice for you. I believe there is a force in life where if you sit back, take your time, let things happen – everything will fall in place. 🙂
Also, take some time off to relax and catch a movie. The movie of the week (drum roll please)***** from director Ron Howard “Rush” Set against the sexy and glamorous golden age of Formula 1 Racing, this film portrays the exhilarating true story of two of the greatest rivals the world has ever witnessed: Handsome English playboy Hunt and his methodical, brilliant opponent, Lauda. Taking us into their lives on and off the track, “Rush” follows the two drivers as they push themselves to the breaking point of physical and psychological endurance, where there is no shortcut to victory and no margin for error.
Have a great day everybody-

Good morning UND! Looking at another nice day a high of 60. The movie of the week “Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2.” This will be a great movie to see on the big screen, a good story – and the special effects and colors will truly be a sight to see.
A message for your work out routines: “Dont argue with the body, because that’s an argument you can’t win.”
Happy Belated Cheeseburger Day!
National Cheeseburger Day
When : Always September 18th
National Cheeseburger Day was yesterday – DId you get one? Top off America’s favorite sandwich, with a piece of cheese.
The food industry makes it a point to celebrate a wide variety of foods. We believe the Cheeseburger certainly earns a special day.
Have a cheesy day everybody!
Good morning UND! Looking like a nice today with a high of 67. The movie of the week, “The Family” – A mafia boss and his family are relocated to a sleepy town in France under the witness protection program after snitching … need I say more. DVD of the week “The Ice Man” – A true story from the 60’s, a normal dad lives a hidden life as a hit man, in the early 80’s he was arrested for killing 100 men. Crazy story. UND Sports talk – two thumbs up to the UND football team – they gave SD a real run for their money. I met a friend for the game as he opened the door I jumped back surprised I said, “what did you do to yourself?”
“I PAINTED MY FACE.”
” I see that but why?”
“YOU KNOW SUPPORT THE TEAM”
“Well you can’t walk around like that…”
“because its insane!”
It may be insane, but thanks to the UND Sports fans out there that go the extra mile. Have a nice day everybody.
Quick question: who hasn’t eaten at Little Bangkok in East Grand Forks? If you live in the Grand Cities, my guess is that everyone has experienced the taste-bud party that is Little Bangkok’s food. Six lucky guests were able to cook with Little Bangkok and Drunken Noodle owner, Som, at Culinary Corner. Not only did they learn tricks of the trade, participants were sent home with leftovers and ingredients to make the dishes at home! Participants were also able to help Som create four delicious dishes: Coconut Soup, Pad Thai, Green Curry, and Vegetable Medley. I was able to snap a quick picture of the Vegetable Medley dish before I devoured it! One thing I took away from the Explore Grand Forks class was that fish sauce makes everything, I mean everything, better. Look for Explore Grand Forks classes returning next year, don’t miss out! #IeatHealthyUND
