Max Karl Ernst Ludwig Planck

"The father of quantum physics, Max Planck, was based in Berlin and was known to be an extremely conservative and passionate advocate of thermodynamics – the classical theory describing the transformation of energy." read more Nobel Price Org

All matter originates and exists only by virtue of a force which brings the particle of an atom to vibration and holds this most minute solar system of the atom together. We must assume behind this force the existence of a conscious and intelligent mind. This mind is the matrix of all matter.” 
― Max Planck

“There can never be any real opposition between religion and science; for the one is the complement of the other. Every serious and reflective person realizes, I think, that the religious element in his nature must be recognized and cultivated if all the powers of the human soul are to act together in perfect balance and harmony. And indeed it was not by accident that the greatest thinkers of all ages were deeply religious souls” 
― Max Planck

“Science cannot solve the ultimate mystery of nature. And that is because, in the last analysis, we ourselves are part of nature and therefore part of the mystery that we are trying to solve.” 
― Max Planck

“Under these conditions it is no wonder, that the movement of atheists, which declares religion to be just a deliberate illusion, invented by power-seeking priests, and which has for the pious belief in a higher Power nothing but words of mockery, eagerly makes use of progressive scientific knowledge and in a presumed unity with it, expands in an ever faster pace its disintegrating action on all nations of the earth and on all social levels. I do not need to explain in any more detail that after its victory not only all the most precious treasures of our culture would vanish, but – which is even worse – also any prospects at a better future.” 
― Max Planck

Product Placement and Entertainment

If one looks at American society through the lens of reality TV programming, many readily available sitcoms, and much of cable broadcasting one might say that morality is lacking and that vice is King. 

Hollywood, for a great extent is run by far left progressives thus much programming pokes fun at those with higher moral standards. Hollywood is far too political and many of those pushing their political agenda know very little about political science, much less the lives of the average citizen. They have found a captive audience, many of which don't realize they are pawns being fed a steady diet of Hollyweird ideology and embedded product placement and brand messages. 

Also, how about truth in advertising? Product placement is so well integrated that the distinction between editorial and advertisement is blurred. Perhaps the most susceptible are children who are not mature enough to recognize embedded brand messages which operate at perhaps a subconscious level. 

It is the world of make believe where the elites set up programming that suits their political agenda and pads their pockets, thus the girl or gal in the $2000 + shoes tells the girl or gal struggling to put food on the table that they are the problem with society, they need to give up more of their freedoms and $$ to an overreaching government while the elites pay lobbyists to insulate them.

"Did you know that of all the frequent flyer miles awarded by participating reward schemes, only just over 30% of the miles awarded are redeemed and used? I find that quite incredible. Maybe it’s lethargy, or maybe it’s because many people don’t understand they don’t have to be used solely in exchange for flights. If you are one of those who do not take advantage of your frequent flyer miles, here are some tips that could motivate you to do so."  For Top Ten Tips Click:  All Women Stalk

Savings & Couponing Plan 2013

We plan on saving $$ this year by dividing up couponing responsibilities, hubby does most of the cutting and I do the organizing & matching.  To keep up with our savings and remain motivated I make up 14 envelopes (one per month, 2 for November and December) and write down savings from each receipt which is then filed in that months envelope.  We are also paying off credit cards by transferring balances onto zero percent card + cards that have advantages (miles, x-tra coupons, etc) will be used but paid off immediately so we glean the advantages but incur no additional debt.
