Earth Hour 2008

I meant to post this the other day and entirely forgot. Sorry.

Anyway here's a link:

Well, tomorrow night at 8 pm I’ll be turning off all the lights here in MY house & reading by candlelight for 1 hour. Think of the energy to be saved in JUST ONE HOUR if we all did this. When Sydney Australia started this last year, their effort ALONE had the equivelent effect of taking 48,000 cars off the road! AMAZING. It’s not hard. It could even be a good time for you & your family. (Or, just you & a loved one!) Make a difference. Take ONE HOUR of your time & TURN OUT THE LIGHTS!

Play a family board game by candlelight (or strip-poker with your sweety). Curl up on the couch & read a good book by candlelight, as I’ll be doing. Or, make a party of it, have a bunch of friends over hang out, chatting & talking & getting reaquainted in 1 hour of dark and quiet. Could be lotsa fun, people!!!

I hope all my friends will participate!!!! And if you decide to participate, register on the site so they’ll have some idea of how many are doing this.

Just ONE hour. Think of how much can be accomplished in ONE hour of dark!

Have a Blessed Day!

You GO, girl! Thank you!

No problem with participation, but for some reason my speech programme doesn't like that site and is refusing point blank to let me even read what's on it, so I couldn't sort out getting registered.

We did the right thing all day! The bride and I went to the hill farm and used zero electricity the whole time.
