Stand-up paddleboarding might have a clunky name, but the sport has a passionate following that's growing in the Baltimore area. In September, more than 100 people gathered at Gunpowder State Park's Hammerman Beach in Middle River to participate in one of the region's first stand-up paddleboard races and, in doing so, to raise money for Baltimore County's HopeWell Cancer Support, which provides nonmedical services for people with cancer and their...

Joan Metcalf from Westminster asked for help finding the recipe for Chocolate Bliss Bites. She had clipped the recipe from the February 2007 issue of Prevention magazine but said she was missing the complete directions. She liked the fact that the cookies had no fat. Herb Rosenberg from North Babylon, N.Y., found the very recipe that Metcalf was looking for on the Prevention magazine website (recipes.prevention.com/recipe/chocolate-bliss-cookies.aspx). These gems are incredibly easy to make and taste like rich little brownie bites but are made with zero fat. It's probably a good thing that the recipe only makes 24 because their rich flavor makes them irresistible.

For now, you can call Gilbert Bliss a "Knight of Windsor." While the Freeland man isn't British royalty, he is a member of the Windsor Institute's Royal Orders, an honor society for Windsor chairmakers, and has earned his "knighthood," having completed nine difficult courses. After two more, you can call him an "Earl of Windsor." After his wife gave him a woodworking class as a 50th-birthday present, he hasn't looked back. Bliss has been making reproduction Windsor chairs for the past seven years now. Before, he had worked as a social worker and in a lumberyard.

She was 54. The Freeland resident was born in Philadelphia and grew up near Media, Pa. She earned a bachelor's degree in art education from Philadelphia College of Art in 1970. Her personality led her college friends to dub her "Beckett" after playwright Samuel Beckett. "She had a flair for the dramatic," said her husband, Gilbert Bliss.

City dwellers who are used to urban coffeehouses and wine bars, normally found in renovated storefronts and converted townhouses, will have a hard time relating to Bliss, the new coffee and wine bar in Riverside. (It's not in nearby Bel Air, in spite of what the Web site says.) When I say new, I mean really new. Bliss is one of the first tenants in the new Riverside shopping center. Everything about it is shiny new, from the walls of windows to the casual, contemporary furnishings to the industrial chic exposed pipes to the flat-screen TV. (Not something you expect in either a coffeehouse or wine bar.)

Tyler Steinhardt doesn't remember the last time he slept. Monday, maybe. When he's finally able to shut his eyes, after his world-record 24-hour lacrosse game to benefit the Wounded Warrior Project is finally over at 9 a.m., Friday, he'll have more than sheep to count. One thousand players. An estimated 5,000 spectators. Forty thousand dollars raised? Done. What about 50-, 60-, 100 thousand? And then this number: One. The first steps taken in public by Sgt. Ryan Major since he lost both legs and several fingers to an IED in Iraq.

William and Kate are getting hitched soon. And if they are like most newlyweds, they need to discuss finances. Should they merge accounts? Shall Kate be added as an authorized user on William’s card? Will the Queen have veto power on purchases over 5,000 pounds? (Ok, most newlyweds don’t have to deal with a monarch.) Anyway, we’re looking to interview couples — those just married or about to be — about how they plan to handle their finances and maintain marital bliss. Please email me at eileen.ambrose@baltsun.com if you’re interested in talking.

Remember when a walk-in closet was considered a luxury item in a home? Now, what makes any fashion fan salivate is the idea of a closet room. Baltimore interior designer Amanda Austin says more and more homeowners are converting a room to a closet. "No one likes to dig for things; having things stashed underneath the bed," says Austin, who has created her own closet room. "I do think people are willing to have a smaller bedroom for a larger closet. ... I think everybody wishes to live in a state of convenience and bliss.

Last spring, Robert and Allison Ross charted a course for their future, signing a contract on a townhouse to be built in the Ellicott City community of Shipley's Grant. One year later, the couple has sailed smoothly from getting married to moving into their first home. Both originally from Howard County, they purchased their townhouse from Bozzuto Homes in April 2009. Three months later, they married and spent the summer biking to and from the construction site of their new home, watching it materialize a bit each day. They moved into their three-story dream home in November, just in time for Allison Ross to settle in, decorate and serve Christmas dinner to her relatives.

Watching the Roller Derby movie "Whip It" is like spending roughly two hours with a frisky group of girls in a female empowerment camp. In the young-adult source book of the same name, the heroine, Bliss Cavendar, says in her first-person narration that "for the record, the roller-derby sisterhood is the real thing, not tainted by that fake you-go-girl, Oprah vibe you get from Noxzema commercials." She states she "really knows this" because "no one actually says 'you go, girl,' " - instead they say things like "you rock the house."

SAMBUCA FRIEND SQUASH The more casual side at Cinghiale - the enoteca - keeps getting more accessible. So get a plate of late-summer bliss - firm yellow squash enveloped in a crispy batter, pleasingly salty with just the faintest whiff of anise. Better yet, have them as an accompaniment to executive chef Julian Marucci's Roman fried chicken (R.F.C.), where the tempura-like batter seems to be suspended in air over the juicy skin beneath ($16). Eat it outside, with a glass of Frascati. Try the Sambuca Fried Squash at Cinghiale, 822 Lancaster St. 410-547-8282.
