When life gives you lemons, make lemonade

Some of you may have seen the video recently going around on the web and emails about the fact that many restaurants don't always wash their hands when they put a lemon in your water. That totally grossed me out. Fortunately, not all is lost! There are these convenient lemon packets called True Lemon that you can carry in your purse or wallet to add to your water and add a fresh lemony taste. Get a free sample of True Lemon. They also have lime and orange flavors. I love to add these packets to my water, soup, tea, even fish and vegetables. For instance, the lime packets add an extra kick to chicken noodle soup! Anyway, I'd thought I'd share this!!

It will cost you an arm and a leg!

Interesting fact I picked up today:

There were no cameras in George Washington's days. One's image was either sculpted or painted. Some paintings of George Washington showed him standing behind a desk with one arm behind his back while others showed both legs and both arms. Painters based their fees on how many limbs were painted, not on how many people were to be painted. Painting arms and legs would cost a buyer more. Hence the expression,"Okay, but it'll cost you an arm and a leg.."
