My Jeep Grand Cherokee has locked itself automatically with the keys in the car. I don't have a spare key (it's a long story).

My poor little lemon tree looks like it's dying. The leaves are drooping bad. I have an orange tree that is twice the size of the lemon tree and it's doing okay. It is rainy season here and it was fine until about 10 days ago.
