    0 Moral Code

    Life can be difficult, and we are often tempted to take the easier path to accomplish things; however, this is not always the best or wisest path to take.  Having a set of standards and sticking to a moral code is easier said than done, but the reward of having lofty standards is well worth the effort.

    0 The Fall of Quality and the Rise of the Disposable Economy

    Things really are not made as well as they used to be.  We hear people say this all the time and never really give it much thought but the fact is this is a true statement.  Over the 100 years, products are no longer designed to last and must be replaced far more often.  This has not happened by accident.  From manufacturing changes to material changes there are a number of reasons why products are no longer fixed but replaced instead.
