A Dad May Have Ruined His Son’s Chance at $50,000

The Huffington Post reported that last Thursday night, 11-year-old Nick Smith and his family were at a celebrity hockey game in Faribault, Minnesota.  And Nick won a raffle that gave him one hockey shot to win a HUGE prize.

If he could shoot a puck from center ice through a three-and-a-half inch cutout 89 feet away, he'd win $50,000.  The puck itself is three inches wide, so the shot is almost impossible.

But when Nick's name was announced, he was out of the arena.  So his identical twin brother Nate went down to the ice and took the shot...and he made it!

Make Your Own Dog Food And Save Money

I love my dogs almost as much as I love my kids. I have a four year old Boston Terrier named Pig, and a twelve year old Dalmatian cross named Connor that live like kings at my house. We don't feed the boys table scraps, well, not very often, so we try to ensure they have good wet and dry dog dog food to keep them happy. But lately, due to inflation and the cost of fuel, we've seen the price of dog food rise.

After a bit of research and number crunching, we decided to stop buying dog food and make our own.
