Dance of the Planets 2013 begins May 24th in the evening sky
OMG! Is that a tightly packed cluster of alien ships invading our atmosphere?
Relax, it’s just one of nature’s astronomical treats for those who take the time to look up into the evening sky every now and then.
The Dance of the Planets begins tonight, May 24th, and is when Jupiter, Venus, and Mercury (the three brightest planets in the night sky) will all appear to be very close to each other.
Each evening the planets will be in different (but still very close) positions to each other, giving the appearance that they are dancing around each other from day to day.
The planets will be closest to each other in their “dance” from May 24th to 29th. So close, in fact, there will most definitely be some planetary bumpin’ and grindin’ happening on that cosmic dance floor.

Home-grown herbs: How to grow herbs indoors easily
Even if you only have a single windowsill or a square foot of spare countertop, as long as there’s some light source (doesn’t even have to be the sun!), you can cultivate your own indoor garden with minimal cost and even less effort.
Herbs are a great choice for beginners due to the multi-use, double duty nature: not only do they add natural seasoning and organic flavor to our favorite dishes, but many of them have uses wholly outside the kitchen.
Here are two perfect examples of indoor herb garden staples that are easy to cultivate even if you’re cursed with a brown thumb.

Nice job, Park Tool!

Shout out to Park Tool. Yesterday our editor-in-chief spoke with them regarding a warranty issue on one of their bicycle scales he was having a problem with and they said, “If you promise to recycle it, you won’t have to bother with sending it back, and we’ll just send you a new one.”

They said that not knowing they were talking to a green digital media editor.

Excellent customer service and gentle encouragement to reduce e-waste. Keep it up!
