Lemon peel powered iPhone

My wife makes Dr. Oz green drink daily. She uses two lemons. We usually dry and give them as gifts to friends with fireplaces b/c they burn very well.

public servants

The exchange works directly for state and public workers and servants. It gives them credit in exchange for the amount of public work they contribute to the community. The more constructive they are based off a base rate the more credit they recieve.
