Recycle E-Waste


By now, we all realize that recycling makes sense and we should do it. Slowly but surely, recycling has become available in just about every city and town. But what about the stuff that can't go in the recycling bin? The EPA and other agencies suggest that electronic waste (aka e-waste) is the fastest growing waste stream in the world. Chances are, you have an outdated electronic appliance gathering dust somewhere in your house right now. This Earth Day, why not help make sure those gadget end up properly recycled instead of taking up space or leaching toxins in a landfill? Hall county's recycling center is at 1008 Chestnut St. SE. Click here to read the details on recycling your electronics locally.

Atlanta's OTHER Falcons


Peregrine falcons have been nesting at SunTrust Plaza in Atlanta since 1997.This camera offers a unique look at a pair is nesting in a planter on a balcony more than 50 stories above ground. High above any natural predators, the planter offers soft substrate for the nest and affords some protection from harsh weather. T
he Falcon cam gives you a 24/7 view of this falcon family.

Fast and Fun Craft


So simple! Layer cheap plastic beads in cake pans (no lining required), melt at 400 for 20 minutes,let cool, & then just flip them out. Drill a hole in it to make it a suncatcher! It's a great craft for kids (choose the colors, arrange them in the pans) to make as gifts for grandparents or teachers. Small ones be used as coasters. It looks like glass but not it's breakable.

Wise Words


"There is a pleasure in the pathless woods, There is a rapture on the lonely shore, There is society, where none intrudes, By the deep sea, and music in its roar: I love not man the less, but Nature more."
