Earth Hour is today from 20:30 – 21:30 (or 8:30 pm to 9:30 pm for those not on the 24 hour clock).
How will you spend it?
Although, I do find it a bit odd that they suggest on their front page that people upload things to the internet during Earth Hour. Doesn’t that sort of defeat the purpose to turning things off? (After a bit of digging around, I found someone else already made the same connection.)
I think the ideal way to spend Earth Hour would be to have a Block Party. Get to know your neighbors and spread the word. 2 birds, 1 stone.
Go out and make your vote count!

Fall is in the air.Â For Northern California, it means rain.Â It’s a good day to curl up with a cup of tea and a good read.
Go ahead.Â Pick yours up.Â Exercise your right to vote.Â Be an informed voter.Â There are too many important issues at stake for you to sit back and ignore.Â Read and study up on the issues, mark up that sample ballot.
I had a lovely dinner and read a book by the light of candles and oil lamps at my house during Earth Hour 2008. How about you?
Actually, I had 2 lovely evenings in a row by candle light. A transformer blew near the club on Friday night, just as dinner was winding down. I spent the rest of the evening talking with friends by candle light. It was lovely.
I received the following email from a friend today:
The Breast Cancer site is having trouble getting enough people to click on their site daily to meet their quota of donating at least one free mammogram a day to an underprivileged woman. It takes less than a minute to go to their site and click on ‘donating a mammogram’ for free (pink window in the middle).
This doesn’t cost you a thing. Their corporate sponsors/advertisers use the number of daily visits to donate mammogram in exchange for advertising. Here’s the web site!
This is so easy and a no-brainer. We are so fortunate to have access to amazing health care. This helps those less fortunate to benefit from our “quick click.”
I have watch several of my friends go through breast cancer. I don’t wish this on anyone. Early detection really helps. Please take a moment and click now. For the rest of this year, I will have a button at the top of my sidebar. After that, you can find it in my links section.
