    The triangle is easy to see in the east one hour after sunset. It is high enough at 10 p.m. so anyone can view the group. You may even be able to watch the stars appear as the sunlight fades, bringing the night sky to life.

  • The past few weeks have been blisteringly hot, and the appeal of crisp, healthy and delicious summer salads has been rising with the temperature. As the temperature rises, my appetite seems to go down.
