“Not at all Lynn.”
“Today’s topic is professional football. Pat, I understand you are a Green Bay Packers fan.”
“Yes Lynn that’s right, go Pack!”
“Pat most people here in Grand Forks are Minn. Vikings fans I am, sire you get a lot of boos an hiss’s, how dose that make you feel?”
“Well Lynn I just go out there every day, I give it 110 present I play good I want to play good I think I played perty good today.”
” Pat I was talking to some of the players on the field and they tell me they wear polyester jerseys. I think they would be happer in cotton. See cotton is a natural fiber.

The must see movies in July are, The starting line up in order:
1. Dawn of the Planet of the Apes – Apes kickin ***! Very cool
2. Hercules - “Gods and demons the classic battle of good and evil.”
3. Transformers Age of Extinction – “Transformers robots in disguise, Transformers more than meets the eyes, the special effects will blow your mind.”
4. Lucy - “Lucy in the sky with diamonds, A woman is accidentally caught in a dark deal, turns the tables on her captors and transforms into a merciless warrior evolved beyond human logic.” How cool is that?
5.Get On Up - “Yea I feel Good ! The god farther of soul James Brown on the big screen, its time to get your grove on.”

For almost 19 years, I’ve been working on my body. I’ve lost and maintained a 100 pound loss with the help of healthy eating, exercise, and endless support from loved ones.
I’m not sure that I’ve ever fully processed what I accomplished, and truthfully I don’t know that I ever well, either. The truth is, when you have a lot to lose, the mental side of weight loss feels more challenging than the physical… at least most days.
My loose skin will never allow me to sport a “tight, toned” anything. And sometimes I’m OK with that, despite the fact that so much of the media out there tells me that I need to take care of that problem- there’s a pill/exercise/program/surgery for that. I’d be lying if I told you I haven’t seriously considered some of these options. I always imagined that when I reached my “goal weight,” I’d finally be just like all the others- skinny, tan, perfect hair, clear skin, and a fast metabolism…
I hate to tell you this, but it doesn’t ALWAYS work out that way. I’ve been told 1000+ times to lift weights so my skin will firm. To do crunches so I will finally have abs.
And I’ve tried, to no avail. To be honest, lifting weight and crunches haven’t ever been attractive to me. I’ve given them their fair shot, and they still make my workout routine on a yearly basis, but I find myself bored and unable to stick with it. I like my walking and elliptical time- and if there’s one thing I’ve learned about exercising, it’s that I MUST listen to my body/mind when I’m struggling to get into any sort of exercise. If you’re stuck, I encourage you to find what you enjoy and go with that- it’ll keep you going much stronger/longer. Some people like to torture themselves with exercise… but that’s just not for me.
I used to apologize for my routine, but I’m realizing more and more that the best thing to hear is : You’re doing it right. You are moving, so you are doing it right. Change when you’re ready, but for now love what you do and most importantly… love YOU!
Good morning UND! We are looking at a sunny day with a high of 78.
The movie of the week: Hercules – This thriller movie will be a vary cool to watch on the big screen action packed and special effect that will blow your mind.
The Running show is prod to bring you: “Stories that will blow your mind!”
‘Waiting for the cable guy’
Last week I call the cable guy, he says, “ill meet you at you home around 11….. or 1….. or 2…… or 3.”
After waiting around for hours, he finally shows up…. dragging mud all over my clean floors. Surprise no apology. Do you ever expect great service somewhere and don’t get it? What do you do to stay positive? Comment below!
Swim a Lap Day
When : June 24th
Swim a Lap Day is good for your health. And, it’s a fun day, too!
It’s time to enjoy all that summer has to offer, including plenty of time in and around the pool. What better way to enjoy the early days of summer, than by taking a lap or two (or three) around the pool. In addition to the fun, it’s great exercise to help keep you fit!
Have a great day!
Good morning UND, looking like a nice day with a high of 79.
Well the summer is coming to a close but there is still a full month of July, so come on let’s get out there, let’s get warm!
The movie of the week: Jersey Boys. I personally saw this movie and at first I thought to myself, “I can’t watch this movie. I can’t watch a man sing a song, he gets all emotional, his hips swiveling, and he’s swaying it kind of makes me feel embarrassed for them!”
Well that’s not the case, this is a great movie. A classic rock and roll story. “It’s the rise a fall of Frankey Valley And The Four Seasons.”
Catch this Rock and Roll classic at the River Cinema.
And know another bit of *Wow, I did not know that!*

Have a great day everybody!
Good day UND! Looking like a sunny day with a high of 72 and a low of 51. The Forth of July weekend coming up, I hope you all have some big plains:)
“THIS IS IT TRUE BELEAVERS” – Today is World UFO Day! World UFO Day seeks to get governments to fess up to the existence of UFOs. Many people believe that UFOs from outer space have already visited us, and a big, government cover-up is hiding the facts from the public.
The date for this special day was chosen because it is the date of the Roswell Incident, a historical event leading to wide speculation and belief that aliens have indeed visited us.
The Roswell Incident:
July 2, 1947 is a date well-known to UFO believers (Isn’t everyone!?). On this date, Mac Brazel, a rancher in northwest of Roswell, New Mexico discovered wreckage of a metallic object on his ranch. The wreckage and the metal it was made of was strange. He contacted military authorities who investigated the site, and removed the wreckage. The first military reports referenced a mysterious, Unidentified Flying Object. These reports were later rescinded, leading to wide speculation and claims of a massive government cover-up of the discovery of UFOs from outer space. It also sparked fear of a UFO invasion and rumors of other incidents. That speculation is alive and well today.
The movie of the week ….this movie so fits this day….
“Earth to Echo” – In this fun story two boys discover an alien trapped on earth, four friends come together to protect and help him find his way home. Catch this fun animated movie at the River Cinema.
Have a great weekend everyone, and remember, “We all shine on like the moon… and the stars… and the sun.”
