It cannot be confirmed if el chupacabra actually exists, but sightings of the creature have appeared from Mexico and the United States, to Russia and the Philippines. It has been described as a creature the size of a small bear with a row of spines going down its back.

Strange Montana City Laws

Montana is a beautiful state, not many states can compare to her. However, when it comes to laws Montana may not quite be on the cutting edge. It seems that our cities in particular might have a little difficulty making sound judgements when it comes to city laws. Some of these laws may have been relevant at one time, but others I’m not sure were ever, or will ever, be relevant.

Quick and Easy Cake With Fruit Recipe

I love baking, but don’t always have time to make things from scratch. My kids have dessert or a baked good of some sort almost every day. But with my kids getting older and playing sports and all the other after school activities that they are involved in, I don’t have as much time to bake as I would like. So, when I can find a way to make my life a little easier, I do it. I ran across this recipe on Pinterest the other day and couldn’t wait to try it. It’s easy enough that my boys can make it by themselves too.

Are Cats Serial Killers?

The long and short of it is yes. Cats are the worst kind of killers – serial killers. They kill over and over and usually with the same M.O. According to a report put together by scientists from the Smithsonian Conservation Biology Institute and the Fish and Wildlife Service, it was estimated that cats in the United States (both domestic and feral) kill 2.4 billion birds and 12.3 billion mammals a year.

Crockpot Potato Pig Soup Recipe

This soup is called potato pig, because I use either ham or bacon when I make this soup. All the boys in my family love both, but I definitely prefer ham. There is nothing quite like hot potato soup on a cold Montana day. It’s creamy and hearty. This is a super simple recipe. If you wanted to make it even simpler, you could always prep the potatoes and onions the night before then all you have to do is throw everything in the crockpot in the morning before work. This would save you at least 20 minutes in the morning. I don’t have a lot of spare time in the mornings, so this makes it way more convenient.
