Four days from now, on Nov 15th, the National Recycling Coalition will be celebrating it's 11th annual America Recycles Day, a day dedicated to moving Americans towards recycling more and buying recycled products. They have a very cool website with all sorts of resources including a Recycling 101 and a pledge that you can take to recycle more. Make sure to see what's going on in your area and join in.
Hilary sent this in (thanks Hilary). I'm not to sure what's harmless about ammonia coolant falling into the ocean, but Im guessing they meant it didn't hurt any people directly. Looks like space is getting too full of stuff too!

CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla.—A refrigerator-sized piece of space junk fell harmlessly into the South Pacific Sunday night, according to NASA.
The junk was a tank full of ammonia coolant on the international space station that was no longer needed. Astronaut Clayton Anderson threw it overboard during a spacewalk in July 2007.
Space station program manager Mike Suffredini said Monday that the debris splashed down somewhere between Australia and New Zealand Sunday night. The tank had served as a reserve supply of spare coolant at the space station since 2001.

OK, I know I'm running behind but please forgive me, things have been truly nuts. This months site of the month was supplied by a blog reader named Kathleen (thanks Kathleen!) who sent Gettin' Around my way.
OK, I have no idea how I did this but somehow my weeks got ll messed up. I've been having a computer/pic problem and it has completely thrown my counting off. Such is life eh? I can tell you this much, the tallying is back on track and these pics are from about ten minutes ago.
