Earth Hour

Well I guess this would be one of those rare posts that fall into ‘the rest’ category.  It’s not technical in nature but it makes me feel like I am doing something for the environment.  And of course we all know that it’s how we feel that matters.

On March 28th Earth Hour is taking place at 8:30pm your local time.  The concept is for everyone in the world to turn off their lights for one hour.  The website can be found here: http://www.earthhourus.org/ .

In my home we are taking it one step further.  We are turning the power off at the breaker for two hours.  Why at the breaker?  Because all those wonderful electronic devices you have keep pulling juice from the power grid.  We migh even make it a weekly habbit at our home.  Why not, we can always go for a walk or sit in the backyard and stare into the sky.
