1) To start off the week something while not to glamorous, but something with great potential, normally the term scum is not greeted with, “gee that might save the world’’, but then think about “the meek will inherit the earth”. It has always been the simplest concepts that have made the largest changes. Most really great ideas have started as simplistic concepts that were improved on to create great advances. This may be just more, after all the oil we use is the same product, except it takes millions of years, as opposed to less than one. Interesting article here
