A Soup to Nuts Carnival - First Course

Health Plans Plus is delighted to be hosting the First Course of the Second "A Soup to Nuts Carnival." I know that you will enjoy reading these well written and informative blog posts on a variety of topics as much as I did.

The idea of a carnival is basically to bring a number of blogs together in one place so they can all benefit from a promotional effort. There is no better way to connect with other blogospherians than to do blog carnivals.

SOUP TO NUTS is the only progressive dinner carnival in the blogosphere. One carnival, presented in five parts.

We're proud to have collected a large number of great posts from a wide variety of blogospherians. Blogs from around the globe are represented, the new and the well established. We ask that you visit all five courses of the dinner; some blogs have posts in more than one course, others appear only once.

You can benefit from visiting the carnival by checking out the blogs represented and writing comments. That will lead to you getting new visitors, to increasing your traffic, to receiving more comments and to having invitations to exchange links.

Once you've finished enjoying the First Course here, the dinner continues at the following locations...

In this, the first of a special eight part series, "A New Look at the Beatitudes", we will be using "The New Testament: An Expanded Translation", by Kenneth Wuest since it presents the more philosophical side of Jesus words. To do this, it is extremely literal, sometimes so much so that the English is awkward, but it extracts the full meaning of the Greek wording. The esoteric understanding, of course, will be up to us.

Great job on the carnival; I appreciate your effort.

The appetizer course, it turned out, was hosted by The Lives and Times... because the Manic Mom didn't show up.

Jason said...

Just starting to look through this course. Thanks for all your work on this project. It looks like you stepped in at the last minute, as the expected host didn't get it up. Thanks for stepping up to the task and making it happen!
