Earth Hour

It's tomorrow night, and it's the talk of the town here. Just wondering if anyone else is participating. 8 pm is close to my bedtime, so I won't have a problem with lights out. Here's a link:

Hmmmm I will have to think about that. I go to bed around midnight and don't fall asleep until around 2 or 3AM..
My flash light won't last that long.

I have candles, but I don't think my laptop battery will last from 8 till 11 or so especially if we watch movies on it!

It appears Google is recognizing Earth Hour as we speak (or type...).
Their main page is blacked out.

I just heard about it today! I would say it was poorly publicized, because I read the newspapers and am online every day....

maybe next year!
