Girl Gossip

 How to be the best Gossip Girl You Can Be!

 Between all the women on the internet there are those that are classy, and those that are trashy. I have met  many likes of many women on twitter some old, Young,  tall, short , skinny, fat,  smart, dumb, poor and rich, fake, real... etc. but all the same women are different and unique in their own way.   While sometimes Gossip may be actually harmful, in small amounts it's innocent, fun and very juicy; not to mention it's one of the main ways to popularity. Make your life worthy to be gossiped about; that includes doing some crazy things once in a while (but not so crazy you're looked down at) while making a reputation of a "Classy" lady. 

If your popularity, however, is falling, win back the hearts you were once popular among- by being yourself and doing what you believe is right to gain the admiration of people around you. Be sexy not trashy, when doing photo-shoots don't go completely nude hide a little and leave a little to the imagination rather than giving everything at once. Men love it when a lady leaves something to the imagination and those that want the women to bare all are usually the ones that are afraid to commit! #JustSaying  Take good care of yourself. Your "Brand name", skin lotions, shampoos, makeup products and other stuff are very often mentioned in Magazines like Vanity Fair, Elle, Cosmo, Jane etc.. In matters of products used not only for grooming, always buy the best you can afford. Have a morning beauty routine/ritual: take a shower or a bath i prefer a bubble bath with salt crystals to soothe your skin I like Calgon, wash and style your hair, paint your nails, apply makeup. When you can afford it, go to beauty salons and spas and have professionals take care of your skin, nails and hair; it's very relaxing and you get better results. I recommend the Milk bath!! There are many things you can do with Clear nail polish but one of them is fixing that runner in your stocking's. Apply a dab on the end of the run and it will stop running. 

 Get the style. Trendy clothes, straight hair, polished look- that's the predominant look in the books. Read fashion magazines and go on to find out about the latest trends. Don't follow trends like crazy, though; having your own style is very appreciated. Just buying a few items in style  at the moment will save you from bankruptcy and losing your fashion identity.  Buy good quality, well-tailored clothes. They don't have to be designer (although a few designer clothes would be great), but they must be stylish, well-designed.  In matters of clothes, go for a sexy, sleek, high-end chic style. Buy some awesome shoes too. Own at least a designer bag, if you can afford it or shop at places you can afford! No one likes the "nosy no money browser!" these are the type of women that go into big high end stores to browse but have no money to buy.

                                                  Never fart, burp, or cuss in public. 
When arguing with someone, don't shout just be elegant in dealing with that person. Don't be annoying, and especially not on purpose. Be respectful to everyone. Learn to apologize and thank people. When going to an event, respect the dress code, if there's one. Don't drink too much at a party; drunk people are just lame. A gorgeous, privileged lady would have no reasons to be insecure, and since you are aiming for her kind of lifestyle, you'll need loads of confidence to make it. Every time you feel down, do something you enjoy, like shopping or relaxing at a spa, for example. Find things you like about yourself and enhance them.  Find a Role Model that inspires nothing but greatness out of you.. I enjoy Audrey Hepburn; you can choose her, or any other fabulous personality you admire. It has to be someone that lives/has lived the way you want to live, so that it's easier to follow. For example, if your dream job is modeling look at Tyra Banks, or if you wish to be the wealthiest woman look at Oprah or a woman who inspires greatness by just being herself why not Ellen Degenerous! These women have set goals and have achieved them this is what makes a great Gossip Girl a woman that wants better for herself who demands nothing but greatness! Being involved in extracurricular activities and charities is very important, as these are bonus points in getting into the college of your dreams and having a rewarding job and reputation later in life.

***************HAPPY GOSSIPING!!! Make sure your Gossip is CONSTRUCTIVE rather than DESTRUCTIVE !! REMEMBER!!! Make your life worthy to be gossiped about!!! ***********

I can make it through the Rain... I am strong enough to mend!

I chose this song, because lately I've felt like I've been in a rain storm. Grandma has had surgery and feeling like i've lost her was a really sad feeling i couldn't stop crying so much all the times that we've spent together rushed through my mind the memories of how i would stay with her during the summer time. She would send me to the grocery store i would spend $200.00 on grocries and i got to buy whatever i wanted to cook for her and i would have fun discovering new ways to make her diet tastey without salt and things she couldn't have to much of. 


"Grandmothers are just antique little girls.  ~Author Unknown"

"Grandfathers are just antique little boys.  ~Author Unknown"

Grandma sits with me today and she really can't breath to good but she is breathing. she doesn't want to call the hospital because she doesn't want to go in again. She feels like she's in her last stages and she's been crying a lot she says she's not afraid to die but today she asked me to fill out the forms for the Advance Health Care Directive Kit. So my mother myself and my grandma and my friend all sat down and made sure she knew what she was doing and she signed the forms. This was an emotional process for me because i didn't think my mother would be ok with me being in charge of her medical part of the whole thing since i have been the one to care for my grandmother. 
She is mildly overdramatic at times and it has been a rough night and day with her. 

"The history of our grandparents is remembered not with rose petals but in the laughter and tears of their children and their children's children.  It is into us that the lives of grandparents have gone.  It is in us that their history becomes a future.  ~Charles and Ann Morse"

sometimes.... I ponder on the times when I was younger just before my Grandpa passed away well he wrote a card for me about graduating and sometimes I wonder what will grandma's last words be to me before she goes. I wonder why God made us this way why we have to lose the ones we love, why there even has to be a last word maybe this is why it's so easy to say good bye in some of the relationships I've been in. "It's a fact that no one is perfect, not one person is the same so how can one be perfect right..?" I often don't realize how old I really am. 34 years is a long time but it never really hits you until you've seen the children you've used to babysit grown and with kids. 

 My Interview With Grandma
All photo's included are of the many Grandma's
of the World let's share in a moment of Grandma!!!

What are your favorite colors Grandma? baby blue

Do you have a favorite movie Grandma? I have two of them that I'll never forget when i was younger China's Little Devils and Cotton field China's Little Devils at that time they painted him up to look Chinese i can't remember his name but he became very famous it was during the Pearl Harbor War. 

If you could tell anyone anything to better their lives from your experiences what would you tell them? If there young and single don't get married until you get a steady job and have enough money to get your home and then get married to raise a family but don't go from girl to girl or boy to boy just make up your mind and just do it don't let no one stop you weather you don't have a car take a bus I've taken it for many years, and once you have all that thank God and remember without God you can't do nothing. 

If you could share a part of your life one memory which one would you share? I had this boyfriend that was in the service and we had plans of getting married when he got out and he got killed in action and that doesn't come out of my mind that was a bad experience but the good experience was living with my mother that was the best experience i ever had she taught me a lot.  

What are some of the things your mother taught you? To forgive, not to look down on other people and cleanliness, and how to cook. 

Tell me about the time when you were younger when your father took care of you when you had Exema...  yeah i was born with a skin disease called exema and it just wouldn't stop my hair didn't grow i didn't have eye lashes eye brows but then at the age of 13 oral Roberts brought his tent revival and i went to church and he prayed for me and i got healed. my Mother would sit up night and day putting all kinds of medicine on me so i wouldn't scratch. Thank God i don't have it anymore. My father was another good person he took care of me he would rap me up in a sheet and take me to the doctor he didn't have a car at the time and he would walk with me in his arms he was the best dad. 

What children need most are the essentials that grandparents provide in abundance.  They give unconditional love, kindness, patience, humor, comfort, lessons in life.  And, most importantly, cookies.  ~Rudolph Giuliani

Did you have any friends during that time growing up? very few in school they thought it was catchy but i had my comadre keeto we were very close and i had a few other friends but they moved away and my sister feena she used to take good care of me too.

What was your inspiration for creating a women's home for court committed women who abused drugs? "God of a second Chance #1" I had a women's home and a men's home I ran the womens home and Danny ran the mens home it was a good experience for me because i learned why these women get into drugs and they had bad things happen to them and they didn't leave the home until they were clean and the men they did pretty good after that, and  Danny  took care of them ... some of the men became preachers. 

Who was the most memorable woman? In the women's home it was Gigi, and in the mens home was Patricio. 

It's one of nature's way that we often feel closer to distant generations than to the generation immediately preceding us.  ~Igor Stravinsky

Being grandparents sufficiently removes us from the responsibilities so that we can be friends.  ~Allan Frome

How did you come up with the idea of running a womens home ? when i started going to church when i was 13 and God healed me i wanted to pay back some way and i would go into the prisons and talk to the men and women and i decided that some of them really needed help and so i decided to create the program for each one. 

If you could take it all back would you do anything different? No, I would continue. 

Were you around during any of the wars did how did they effect your life? My brother Mo and Franky were in all those war's and then the last one but i remember the war's how some came back and some didn't.  It was bad when they got wounded my oldest brother manuel he was president John Kennedy's bodyguard we weren't allowed to see him because he couldn't be out in public. Franky came home and started running around and finally met Mirna and he got married and very seldom seen him. Mo came home and got sick because he got hooked on drugs and there were over 6000 people at his funeral because he worked for the community and they all remembered him because he would help people. and my younger brother passed away but before he died he left his wife and kids a home. 

What was your favorite car out of all the car's you've had? My Chevy 
What color was it again? bLUE, Baby blue... Chevy.  I would walk up and down the street looking for your mother when she would borrow my car oh my God! she made me go through changes!

# What did you and your siblings do in your spare time?
Are you kidding !? fight! My sister Lita she thought she was a lot better than me and always flirting with boys and didn't want me around she was ashamed and then she would go out and want me to lie to my mom for the next day that she came home to sleep but she didn't she was always something else.

Mo [Grandma's Brother] was in jail, lita ran away, felix had a girlfriend, who else... and i was alone just me and my mom and my mom was always babysitting i think i was about 18, when i went to see Mo in jail but no one came out he's not out yet they said and it was someone else that came out and they said that's him right there and i said no that's not my brother and they asked him what's your name and he said his name and it wasn't my brother. The guy's name was Ray, he was five years older than me and used to walk like a Cholo.. and started coming around and everything and that was it, he got what he wanted and then after i was pregnant i told my  mom she couldn't believe it and she said you gotta get married and when he came over to visit mother told him he had to marry me. then he started thieving and they got him and put him in  jail and i went to pastor Sonny and he paid for my divorce when i went to sonny he asked me what happened i said Ray beat me up and that's how i lost my eye. I got a restraining order on him and don't know where he's at anymore. Then Renee  [Grandma's Daughter] was running around the streets and  doing drugs and they put her in a christian home and she did it again and they busted her and she got a probation officer and Renee's father married Renee's probation officer. 

A few months after .. the next time when i was sitting in the park walking Chonga and there he was Ray... sitting in the park and then again he beat me up and this time when Renee saw me she asked me "what happened mom?" and i said your father beat me up and Renee told her probation officer and he never came around again.

# Did you have a favorite aunt/uncle?
Uncle, just my sister fina she was like my dad when he married my mom he had already had fina and Manuel from his first wife but my mom raised em' so she was like my step sister. but she was good at everything.  and Manuel spent most of his time in the service we had an uncle named Jimmy i didn't like him because he came down the house and he would try to hug my mom and i didn't like him.

my aunt my mothers sister, keeka [aka] frances but they used to call her keeka she lived in el paso and then she moved down to pico. just up the street she would visit my mom
ooh they were always so happy and then they had another sister Belen that came down my mom's house and she had a son named chewy and that's when Renee got pregnant and i blamed him because he disappeared but i had blamed the wrong man for getting my daughter pregnant then she gave the baby up for adoption that's why she's so close to those kids [the kids she has now]  she doesn't leave them out of her sight. 



When grandparents enter the door, discipline flies out the window.  ~Ogden Nash

 I married Lupe and we got married but he met somebody else and left and i told him he better pay for the divorce and he did and then no more...

# How did you meet your spouse?
In a night club I think.. in San Gabriel the man had to go somewhere and asked me if i would tend the bar and i didn't know anything about that and he said oh it's easy and i worked there for awhile and he walked in and that was it. but he had been married before
and had kids and was always over there and i said ah. forget you!


# What did your parents do for a living?
 My mother would clean houses and cook for people a house keeper, and my father was a Minor.In those day's in Pico they had trucks that would come and sell corn on the cob or potatoes we hardly had any meet either unless they would kill a chicken. some people would make tortillas and sell them at that time there were hardly any stores. everybody would make Menudo and share with everybody not like now.

# How old were you when you got your first job?
I think i was 14 i used to babysit 75cents an hour that was a lot I'd be all happy because they would pay me cash and i would take it to my mom and i think i was 17 when i started to work in Birdcage Pacific Bell Birdcage i was a welder. i had a lot of jobs and then i worked at the Biltmore florist making corsages and reefs we worked at the floats we decorated the floats.

# Which job was your favorite?
the floats especially because i never knew what the baby orchids were.

Physical Characteristics
# What physical characteristics do people in your family share?
 I look like my mom i have her build and i have big breast just like she did Renee looks like her dad.

I remember a time when grandma  tried out her new electric wheel chair and we got stuck in the middle of the street and i had to steer for her and she ran over my toes. LOL - Sarah Saldana


# What part did religion play in your family?
 Well we were brought up catholic but when Oral Roberts came with the Tent Revival i went to church and liked it but i think by that time Lita had run away with stein and Mo and Piga everyone was gone. and mom would go to church every Sunday. Then my brothers started to go to church.

# Were you very religious?
 When i started going to church i was beginning to be religious i wasn't to much into it because i wasn't reading the bible and all that and they had baptismal and Sony had that big place where he lived and i liked it we all got baptized and i said I'm going to stay here and my life started changing and my mom started going and we liked it and it was good.

Mo was so famous they used to give him these big things of velveeta cheese and he would take them to Mexico and when Mo died Everyone was there. and when he died Piga wanted to go the day before because she didn't want to be there when his new wife was there. but the next day there was his wife sitting up in there like she was all it. Hardly anyone went up to console her because they liked Piga.

SO uncle Ray aka Mo was married to Piga ?? I didn't know that! ??? YeaH, YeaH... grandma and i were laughing after this.. lol.  

Grandma's last words the years of working were tiring for me. I would get sick but not like now.. . I just turned 75 and everything fell apart but i got to do what i wanted to do in life. i had a lot of friends but then i kept moving around. 

In Closing...  
 Grandma says.. "Don't forget my Two brothers and that movie they left behind "The Duke of Earl" You can search it on Julian was an inmate and Mo' was the security Guard in the Jail scene. 


I Hope you enjoyed this blog as much as i enjoyed interviewing Grandma. 
Please Comment below. I share all comments with Grandma. xoxo

"Losing Family"

Written by
Sarah Saldana
June 24, 2010
[Inspired by the movie Finding Forester]
"Losing Family"

“Family: My idea of the definition of family, a circle of people committed to your well being, and who have become dedicated to working together to better each-others future reaching the goal of obtaining one‘s growth in society. “

Losing family, is never easy but often the reality is that we could never really be prepared. I’ve often thought about all the family I’ve lost. There was a time I’ve lost my two uncles, my grandfather, and my cousin all within the same time frame. My uncle Julian had serocis of the liver, My uncle Raymond aka Mo’ had cancer, my cousin “baby“, well she had a rare skin disease that made her skin shrink and it shrunk and cut off her oxygen. That was how Cousin “Baby” passed away [as far as I‘ve been told].

The sad truth is that none of my family ever spent enough time getting to know each other. I don’t even really know if my cousins real name was “Baby” I was told it was. My grandpa “Tony, Antonio, Anthony” died from choking on a pastrami vein and he had a heart attack. I never got to go to any of their funerals, other than my Grandfathers, however I was always invited to the wake, right before they did the burial and even if I had gone I probably wouldn’t recall or remember it.

I went to my grandfathers wake just before they buried him his son in law’s son was about 3 or 4 years old and told me that his father had killed my grandpa. I was in shock and did not know where to turn with that news, “what could you do?” I mean his son had witnessed his father do the himlic on my grandpa. And the son in law had fallen back because my grandpa was over weight and he couldn’t save him. When my Grandfather passed away it was like losing a father. He has been the only male figure in my life and I would not really see him as often as I would have liked too.

People come into our lives everyday and we never expect them to suddenly go. And for some odd reason, one way or another we lose them, to a death, an illness, or just with time they fade away and then we create new friends and new families.

There has been one occasion that I have worked with someone and they slipped and fell in our office bathroom, and because of that they have passed away. He was our “Office Grandpa” Another male figure in my life, a detective whom I grew up with my mentor passed away from cancer.

There have been many people in my life because I have never had a “Real” father in my life, try to take the place and fill the void of what was missing. Rather than being honest with me and just saying they’d be there for me. I often think how it would be when the time comes how it would feel to lose them too. What then we move on to make more family and the best thing about that is that we chose who we call family.

I learned this as a young girl when my first “so called” best friend was an adopted child. She had been abused by her mother you never really know to what extent abuse can be categorized as the “worst case”. Because I always thought her case was worst, when she would sit with me and talk about how her mother used to twist her hair with a knife on the kitchen floor, as the story goes. She lost not only her real mother and I don’t mean that losing family in the sense has to only be when someone passes on, but rather in her situation she lost a mother because her mother had lost her mind. She lost a father because her father never wanted a child let alone deal with the mother. Then her adopted mother was another woman who I knew who had passed away from cancer.

My reason writing this blog, is because we lose people everyday to the extent of someone passing away and someone who just moved on with their own life, we lose the friends we met in high school, we lose touch with our elementary teachers, and we move on when we obtain new jobs or move into a new home, we lose family, everyday.

“I have lost many family members in my life sometimes even three or more at a time.” #LoveEachother !!

~~A Tribute to - Heather Kozar~~

Birthdate: May 4, 1976
Birthplace: Akron, OH
Bust: 36"
Waist: 24"
Hips: 35"
Height     5 ft 8 in (1.73 m)
Weight     117 lb (53 kg; 8.4 st)

photographer: Richard Fegley

Jan 1998 / Playmate of the Year 1999 

Graduated: Green High School in 1994  
Playboy Playmate of the Month: January 1998 
Playboy Playmate of the Year: 1999

 Heather was chosen as the 2002 St. Pauli Girl beer spokes-model.

As a Career Spokes Model, and Media Host her work includes: The Price is Right, Playboy, St Pauli Girl, Wendy's, Brut BMW

I first heard of Heather Kozar from my boyfriend Paul, @PaulBritPhoto   He shared a couple of photo's of her with me and expressed how well she did in her career. Now the thing about Paul is most men would be panting while explaining to their girlfriends that they shared an interest in another woman let alone a playmate! I have to commend Paul not only on his bravery of sharing his "HighSchool" crush so to speak. 

I loved listening to him speak about Heather and how interesting her life story was Paul wasn't like most men you have to buy a towel not for yourself but for them. No in-fact he was very professional and rather respectful in our discussion about Heather. He mentioned a few things to me about how Heather Kozar was an American  model and known as Playboy's  Playmate of the Month for January 1998.  

Not only did she appear on the cover of the June 1999 issue of the Playboy magazine, but she had been voted Playmate of the Year for 1999. Her original centerfold was photographed by Richard Fegley. I did a search on Richard Fegley to see if i could see what this man looked like that photographed one of the historic sexiest legends of Playboy! Well sadly i have to report i could not find one photo of Fegely. 

Heather has also been a Barker's Beauty model for the popular CBS daytime game show, The Price Is Right. I used to watch this all the time with my granny and never knew or had the slightest idea who that woman was but always thought wow! she's pretty. I couldn't believe that by listening to Paul and then researching Heather on my own that i would find out information that was just new and surprising to me!

Kozar is married to ex-Cleveland Browns quarterback Tim Couch. Now many people are talking about the "Trophy Wife" She definitely shows talent of a said "Trophy Wife" She's smart, she did her thing and she didn't get sleezy she just did what she set out to do and was professional and had fun with it! 

{Heather Kozar was raised in a strict Christian home, Heather was not allowed to watch anything that contained sex or cursing, especially soap operas as they were deemed too provocative.} This was funny to read because not to long ago i did my Graphic Designs on a friend of mine and my sister was sending me text messages saying i was using my talent to help the devil so i know exactly what Heather must of felt like when her family was so strict. It's hard living up to these expectations I call it the disease of the Beaver Family. I'm sure you understand exactly what i mean.  However Heather Kozar felt that

Growing up in a sheltered environment and suffering from low self-esteem while in high school, the blue-eyed blonde surely didn't know the impact she would have on males everywhere, due in large part to her relationship with Hugh Hefner... and his magazine, Heather, got more than what she bargained for.

Some of the duties include...
When Heather Kozar was performing Playboy duties, she had the same responsibilities and goals. While on duty, she was responsible for advertising the magazine. One Duty was to socialize with people at a location that is hosting a special event. Events could be EXPO's in Los Angeles to Expo's in other area's city's or states. This can include mingling with businessmen at a business dinner, party goers at a club, revelers at Mardi Gras or guests at a Playboy Mansion gathering. 
Photo Shoot Responsibilities....
During the course of being a Playmate, Heather had to pose for photos. Some girls pose for magazine spreads, while others pose for online picture galleries. Regardless of the final destination of each model's pictures, there are two factors that remains constant during the shoot: the Playmate must be comfortable in the poses she is asked to do, and those present at the shoot must act in a professional manner.  

  • When Playmates are performing Playboy duties, they all have the same responsibilities and goals. While on duty, these women are responsible for advertising the magazine. They socialize with people at a location that is hosting a special event. This can include mingling with businessmen at a business dinner, partygoers at a club, revelers at Mardi Gras or guests at a Playboy Mansion gathering.

  • The 1994 Green High School graduate appeared in a Playboy Video, she was also in the Playmate Calendar in 1999 and 2000, Playmates of the Year: The '90s (a retrospective of the past Playmates of the decade in 1999), Playmate Pajama Party in 1999, and the Playboy Video Centerfold: Playmate of the Year Heather Kozar in 1999.

    Lemons! Lemons! Lemons! I love Lemons!

    Lemons I love Lemons because they have the ability to brighten any day. They remind me of memories of having saladito's with lemons with my sister. I love lemon on my Salsa Fresca, carnitas, carne asada and fish taco's. You can put lemon on almost anything that you don't like to eat and kill the taste. Lemon juice taste great on corn on the cob with parmasan cheese. 

    Lemons can be used for anything Lemon pies, and lemon cake and lemon candy drops! There are many types of Lemons, Sweet lemons and bitter Lemons 

    [The Meyer lemon, actually a cross between a lemon and possibly an orange or a mandarin, was named for Frank N. Meyer who first discovered it in 1908.] "This is the kind of Lemon Tree I have in my back yard."

    • A bowl of fresh lemons will add fragrance and color to a room for days.
    • Add a slice or two of fresh lemon to a glass of water. It has visual appeal and makes the water taste and smell better.
    • If you are reducing your sodium or fat intake, try squeezing a wedge of fresh lemon on salads, steamed vegetables, soups and stews. You'll never miss the salt or butter!
    • Roll a room temperature lemon on the counter a few times to maximize the amount of juice.
    • Add the grated zest of fresh lemon to recipes for added intensity in cakes and cookies. 
     And who can forget the good ol' saying.. 

    The Encyclopedia's Definition of Lemon

    The lemon is both a small evergreen tree (Citrus × limon, often given as C. limon) native to Asia and the tree's oval yellow fruit. The fruit is used for culinary and nonculinary purposes throughout the world – primarily for its juice, though the pulp and rind (zest) are also used, mainly in cooking and baking. Lemon juice is about 5% to 6% (approximately 0.3 Molar) citric acid, which gives lemons a sour taste, and a pH of 2 to 3. This makes lemon juice an inexpensive, readily available acid for use in educational science experiments. Many lemon-flavored drinks and candies are available, including lemonade and lemonheads.
    Culinary Uses Lemon juice, rind, and zest are used in a wide variety of culinary applications:
    • Lemon juice is also used as a short-term preservative on certain foods that tend to oxidize and turn brown after being sliced, such as apples, bananas and avocados, where its acid denatures the enzymes which cause browning and degradation. Lemon juice and rind are used to make marmalade and lemon liqueur.

    • Lemon slices and lemon rind are used a garnish for both food and drinks.
    • Lemon zest, the grated rind of the fruit, is used to add flavor to baked goods, puddings, rice and other dishes.


    Non-culinary uses

    • Citric acid - Lemons were the primary commercial source of this substance prior to the development of fermentation-based processes.
    • Lemon battery - A popular science experiment in schools involves attaching electrodes to a lemon and using it as a battery to produce electricity. Although very low power, several lemons used in this way can power a small digital watch.[11] These experiments also work with other fruits and vegetables.
    • Sanitary kitchen deodorizer - deodorize, remove grease, bleach stains, and disinfect; when mixed with baking soda, lemon juice can remove stains from plastic food storage containers.[12]
    • Insecticide - The d-limonene in lemon oil is used as a non-toxic insecticide treatment. See orange oil.
    • Antibacterial uses because it has a low pH
    • Wood treatment - lemon oil is used in both wood cleaner and polish, where the solvent property of d-limonene is employed to disolved old wax, fingerprints, and grime.
    • A halved lemon is used as a finger moistener for those counting large amounts of bills such as tellers and cashiers.
    • Aromatherapy - In one of the most comprehensive scientific investigations done yet, researchers at The Ohio State University reveal that lemon oil aroma does not influence the human immune system but may enhance mood.[13]
    • A halved lemon dipped in salt or baking powder can be used to brighten copper cookware. The acid cuts through the tarnish and the abrasives assist the cleaning.
    • Lemon juice may also be used to lighten hair color.

    Lemon juice is valued in the home as a stain remover, and a slice of lemon dipped in salt can be used to clean copper-bottomed cooking pots. Lemon juice has been used for bleaching freckles and is incorporated into some facial cleansing creams.

    Lemon peel oil is much used in furniture polishes, detergents, soaps and shampoos. It is important in perfume blending and especially in colognes.

    Petitgrain oil (up to 50% citral), is distilled from the leaves, twigs and immature fruits of the lemon tree in West Africa, North Africa and Italy. With terpenes removed, it is greatly prized in colognes and floral perfumes.

    Lemon peel, dehydrated, is marketed as cattlefeed.

    Lemonade, when applied to potted plants, has been found to keep their flowers fresh longer than normal. But it cannot be used on chrysanthemums without turning their leaves brown.

    Wood: The wood is fine-grained, compact, and easy to work. In Mexico, it is carved into chessmen, toys, small spoons, and other articles.

    Medicinal Uses: Lemon juice is widely known as a diuretic, antiscorbutic, astringent, and febrifuge. In Italy, the sweetened juice is given to relieve gingivitis, stomatitis, and inflammation of the tongue. Lemon juice in hot water has been widely advocated as a daily laxative and preventive of the common cold, but daily doses have been found to erode the enamel of the teeth. Prolonged use will reduce the teeth to the level of the gums. Lemon juice and honey, or lemon juice with salt or ginger, is taken when needed as a cold remedy. It was the juice of the Mediterranean sweet lemon, not the lime, that was carried aboard British sailing ships of the 18th Century to prevent scurvy, though the sailors became known as "limeys".

    Oil expressed from lemon seeds is employed medicinally. The root decoction is taken as a treatment for fever in Cuba; for gonorrhea in West Africa. An infusion of the bark or of the peel of the fruit is given to relieve colic.

    I like boiling the lemon leaves and making a light tea with added milk it taste great! Try it and let me know if you like it! with a Lemon Bar! mmm mmm good! Hope you enjoyed your Lemony stay with  me!
