VALLEY CITY, N.D.--Bernatello's will purchase Pizza Corner's familiar orange and blue vacuum-packed frozen pizzas, according to a news release. The acquisition will be effective Friday, May 20.
FARGO--Most of my life, I've lived by the Carrie Bradshaw financial philosophy: I like my money right where I can see it--hanging in my closet. The protagonist of HBO's "Sex and the City" eventually finds herself unable to purchase her apartment because she's spent $40,000 on shoes over the years. I haven't spent that much on clothing and shoes, but the UPS delivery person knows my address.
MOORHEAD - The board of directors of American Crystal Sugar Co. named Tom Astrup as president Wednesday. Astrup will assume the role immediately, according to a news release from American Crystal. Astrup, 47, has held several positions at American Crystal, including vice president of operations, vice president of finance and chief financial officer. He joined the company in 1994.
FARGO — Most winter mornings, I feel like Holly Golightly in “Breakfast at Tiffany’s.” I want to keep my sleep mask on and stay in bed with my cat. But mornings don’t have to be a struggle. The early hours set the tone for the day, and I want mine to be positive and uplifting, even on gray, wintry mornings.
FARGO -- Monique Stelzer owes her job to a rabbit. A suburban kid growing up in Sioux Falls, S.D., she couldn't keep a calf or lamb in her parents' backyard for a 4-H project. But she could raise a black Himalayan rabbit named Cinnamon. Caring for the rabbit and tracking its development inspired 8-year-old Stelzer to say she wanted to be a "bunny rabbit" when she grew up.
FARGO – Lucid Bakery's chocolate chip cookies are the cream of the crop, minus the cream. And eggs.
FARGO, N.D. – More than 30 billion photos have been shared on Instagram. I’ve posted about 2,500 of them. And I’ve tried more than two dozen photo editing apps over the years to up my ‘Gram game. Although it was released three years ago, Google’s Snapseed is my current favorite photo app (free in the App Store, rated five out of five stars by more than 8,000 users).
FARGO—I'm not a laundry genius. My mom can attest. I like to do the least amount of laundry loads possible, so I often mix colors with darks and wash it all on cold and say a quick prayer. And I forget that some clothing can't be dried in a dryer. A few months ago, I accidentally dried a 100 percent cotton "lay flat and air dry" dress.
I always choose sleep over a good hair day. I used to opt for ponytails instead of spending 45 minutes to wash, dry and style my hair. A wash and dry would last a day, maybe two.
FARGO – In a week when Fargo's been in a frenzy over Josh Duhamel's presence, a Hollywood starlet and her director husband quietly joined me for coffee Tuesday afternoon. I met Kate Bosworth and Michael Polish at Stumbeano's here to chat about their new movie, "90 Minutes in Heaven," and the mini road trip they're on to promote it. They started in Plymouth, Mich., and are stopping for interviews in Minneapolis, Fargo, Bismarck and Billings and Kalispell, Mont., before returning to their Montana home.
