                                                                                                                 (AP Photo/Mark Lennihan, file)   “I know you’ve heard it a thousand times before, but it’s true-hard work pays off.  If you want to be good, you have to practice, practice, practice. If you don’t love something, then don’t […]

Dielarious Laughter

  I love words that aren’t found in any dictionary, but this one ‘dielarious’ and its derivative ‘dielarity’ certainly belong there. I stumbled upon these apt descriptives when reading the June 2012 issue of Ladies’ Home Journal. The article entitled […]

One Soul, One Love, One Heart

Both gentle and direct, this latest book by John Welshons beckons the reader to explore the nature of all of their relationships, from those with children and friends, to romantic partners and God, to the woman or man in the […]

Changing the Dishes
  Fellow Good Men Project author Thomas Fiffer shared his insights about the holiday of Passover. I saw his blog entry this morning as I was contemplating what to write for today's Bliss Blog. Having been raised in a Jewish home, Passover was eagerly anticipated all year long. The pre-holi
