It is hard to believe that spring is here (literally). With the start of a new season means different fruits and vegetables are in season as well. As far as fruits and vegetables go, spring is considered to be March, April and May. When a fruit or vegetable is in season it means is at its peak of flavor or harvest. Not only will the flavor be optimal the price will be the cheapest. Next time you head out to the grocery store be sure to try some of the following items that are in season right now!
Remember, you can enjoy the taste of any fruit or vegetable year-round by using fresh, frozen, canned, dried, and 100% juice – it all counts!

Good morning UND!
Welcome back students!! Today, we are looking for a high of 32 and a low of 20 with sunny skies looking to wrap up the month of March.
There is no better way to end march then by going to a movie! What is the movie this week you may ask? Noah. In a world ravaged by human sin, Noah is given a divine mission: to build an Ark to save creation from the coming flood. Starring Russel Crowe, and Emma Watson, this great story will keep your eyes wide open all 2 hours and 00 min.
Now for another epic tale from Stories of Suspense. This week Stories of Suspense brings you “The Unwashed hands”.
Last week a buddy and I went out to eat. When we got to the restaurant, the hostess showed us to our table, and just as we sat down my friend stood up and walked right to the restroom. A few minutes go by, and he came back to the table and asked the server “that sign in the bathroom, ‘Must Wash Hands’ that’s just for the employees right?” The server stared, squinted his eyes, and paused and said “Technically yeah”. My buddy responds “oh good” as he grabs some bread with his bare hands and asked so innocently, “Do you want some?” “I screamed, No…..!”
have a great day everybody
On Wednesday, March 19th, anti-tobacco activists everywhere will be acknowledging the annual “Kick Butts Day.” Kick Butts Day is a day focused on standing up and speaking out against both tobacco use and the tobacco industry. All across the world, people will be holding all kinds of different anti-tobacco related events. The primary goal of most of these events is to encourage current tobacco users to quit using tobacco for good.
The benefits of quitting tobacco use are numerous, and it is important to investigate the options out there for helping you quit if you choose. Here at UND, there are plenty of resources. At the Health and Wellness Hub, located in the Memorial Union, users will find “Quit Kits” available. Users can also check out Student Health Services to discuss the process of quitting tobacco, and perhaps get a check up to see how at risk you might be for tobacco induced health problems. Across North Dakota, the Department of Health has also established the “ND Quits” campaign. Users interested in quitting can check out the campaign’s website or dial the toll free number to get access to free resources available for quitting.
The good news is that all across the U.S., tobacco use is decreasing. Compared to 42% of the population reporting regular tobacco use in 1965, in 2012, the percentage was reported to be 10%.

Good morning UND!
It’s looking like another sunny day with a high of 30. Spring break is just around the corner and for those not going on vacation this year here are a few tips on how to stay busy. You could learn how to trade stocks, write your life story, or take up tap dancing. Catch up on movies you have missed. Here are a few of my favorite dramatic films; Good Fellas, Donnie Brasco, and The Departed. Or try a “laugh out loud” movie like Anger Management, License To Drive, or The Three Amigos. Not a fan of comedy? Try movies that rock, Rock Star, La Bamba, The Ritchie Valens Story, and Night at the Roxbury.
Hey everybody tomorrow is Ear Muff Day.
When : Always March 13th; origin of “Ear Muff Day”:
Big-eared Chester Greenwood is the father of the Earmuff. Greenwood patented the “Champion Ear Protector” on March 13, 1877. It later became known as “ear mufflers”, and was eventually shortened to “earmuffs”. (“Now you know, and knowing is half the battle.”) –Gi Joe!
Have a great break everybody.
