However, if we discover a complete theory, it should in time be understandable by everyone, not just by a few scientists. Then we shall all, philosophers, scientists and just ordinary people, be able to take part in the discussion of the question of why it is that we and the universe exist. If we find the answer to that, it would be the ultimate triumph of human reason — for then we should know the mind of God.

CROSSOVER – SOUL – The evidence to inspire our faith is there as we open our eyes to everyday life. For what really matters is service, kindness, love, healing and forgiveness. These are the evidence of grace, of what faith entails, and what we derive from The Mind of God.

*You watched the movie 2 days ago, but if you’re caught up on your reading, read Hawking’s The Theory of Everythingbased on a series of lectures given at Cambridge University, Professor Hawking’s work introduced the history of ideas about the universe as well as today’s most important scientific theories about time, space, and the cosmos in a clear, easy-to-understand way.

A renaissance man accomplished in literature as well as finance, Biddle was the country’s first central banker, and he was a master of his craft. Under his firm direction, the Second Bank grew into a powerful instrument of monetary stability, the rock upon which a decade of robust economic growth was built. But for all his financial brilliance and managerial skill, Biddle had faults that proved to be fatal for the Bank and his career. Arrogant, hypersensitive to criticism and unschooled in politics, he failed when put to the test during the vitriolic battle between Biddle and President Andrew Jackson over the rechartering of the Bank.

Why wait? Elvis said it best, “It’s Now or Never.” If you want to do something– do it. If you love someone– tell them. No procrastinating, no waiting around– make your move.

Tomorrow will be too late, it’s now or never.

In January 1965 on his morning children’s show, the performer Soupy Sales suggested to his young viewers that they find the wallets of their sleeping fathers and take out “some of those funny green pieces of paper with all those nice pictures of George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, and Alexander Hamilton, and send them along to your old pal, Soupy, care of WNEW, New York.”

*Use some of those funny green pieces of paper to buy ingredients and make the soupy chicken noodle supper in honor of the birthday boy Soupy Sales.

Wash it down with The Elvis.

The Elvis

Bitter notes from grapefruit and ale balance the floral sweetness of the gin and liqueur—one sip and it will all make sense.
