Harder to Get to Hell?
Hace algunos años, un titular que salió en un periódico debe haber hecho que unas cuantas personas se atragantaran con su café de la mañana, o que limpiaran sus lentes para asegurarse que habían leído correctamente. Decía: «Este año es posible que sea más difícil llegar al

HELL'S BAD RAP
Hell has gotten a bad rap these days. Dante wrote about its amusement park, but that’s fallen into disrepair. It's no longer on the list of any popular tourist destinations. No TV sitcom is set there. It does appear in one "reality show", and the food's pretty good, but the chef

PARTIES ON THE HINDENBERG?
You may have heard someone say, "I'll just party with all my friends in Hell." My mind goes back to May 16th 1937 at 7:25 pm, the German zeppelin Hindenberg, the largest aircraft ever to fly, exploded while attempting to land in Lakehurst,

C. S. Lewis said: "to love at all is to be vulnerable. Love anything, and your heart will certainly be wrung and possibly be broken. If you want to make sure of keeping it intact, you must give your heart to no one. Wrap it around carefully with hobbies and little luxuries; avoid all entanglements;

HELL FREEZES OVER
A rough and gruff man from Massachusetts who didn’t live a very good life died and went to hell. The devil really wanted to punish him, so he put him to work breaking up rocks with a sledgehammer. To make it worse he cranked up the temperature and the humidity.
