Yup, I'll be sitting in the dark but the Carolina Game will be on. (does that count :huh: )

..and the computer. :rolleyes: Hum, well I guess I'm not in the dark.

Well, sort of. :unsure:

We turned off some lights that are normally on at that time. We were eating dinner as the hour started, and so we lit candles and turned off the lights. Instead of having our power company burn fossil fuel to make electricity to power our lamps, we burned fossil fuel candles right in our own dining room. :ph34r:

I say that definitely counts! -- we turned the game on too a little before the hour was up. We had a candlelight card party.

Your boys are looking pretty good going into the half; they just can't seem to pull ahead to a comfortable lead. Could turn out to be an exciting game.

We cooked and ate by lantern. It was fun. The whole meal was more fun. The hommade corn tortillas turned out nicely too, even though it was hard to see in the pan if they were cooking right.

Even though gas mileage and cars get most of the press attention, the overwhelming majority of power/pollution generated by individuals in the US is in heating and cooling homes. All that electricity comes from coal or hyroelectric or whatever - it's 40% of our consumption. And another thing, how is it even ethical for an entire nation to flush their toilets with drinking water?

I'm going to eat in the dark every night! (I'll probably continue to flush my toilet whenever necessary -- but it's food for thought when so many folks, even in our country, have little access to clean water.)

What is this? I haven't heard anything about it.

Is it only for the east coast area?

it sounds like a good idea, we should do this all over.

I would have missed it too but Jim DH told me about it

He walked around our circle and there were about 7 families out of 73 that seemed to be doing it.
