Today is Earth Day ! Turn off your lights !
 
Today is Earth Day & they are asking everyone all over the world to turn there lights off for 1 hour between the hours of 8-9:00 your time tonight.
Sidney has all ready done it, to see go to Fox news.com. So lights out everyone between 8:00 & 9:00, tonight.

We are going to do it
 
We are going to pull the plug on everything here, even the freezer, since one hour off is not going to hurt anything in there. It will be interesting to see how much power everyone can save doing this.

This is the most ridiculously stupid thing in the entire world. Salt Lake City was the first city in the world to do this last summer and the net result was a rash of car burglaries in darkened neighborhoods. Never did get a report about all the money saved from going dark because I don't suspect there were any savings. Bah humbug to this one.

Get some night vision goggles and a taser and charge 'em to Mr. Buffett.


We go dark around here all the time... but it's not by choice. Our power company sucks.

I think, instead of coming up with these silly ideas, they should be finding out why we are paying so much for gas that the oil companies have already bought. They buy it at $80 a barrell and charge us $3.16 a gallon, then the price jumps to $100 a barrell and they charge $3.23 a gallon for oil that was already paid for. We're all struggling to make ends meet and the oil companies are making RECORD PROFITS!!!! Grrrrrr.....If it would save me enough money to buy enough gas to do what I need to do every day, I would turn my lights off at 7pm until 7am every day.

Remember Global Cooling
 
Most people have forgotten are not old enough. It was about 30 years ago. It was almost daily in the newspapers and TV a diatribe about how if we didn't do this or that that by the turn of the century we would be entering an Ice age. Google Global Cooling. Substitute the words Global Warming where ever the artilcles have Global Cooling and it will sound strangely like the current political message of today. :oops: Somebody has an agenda here and it's not protecting our environment.

I turned on every light in the house and out and would have left the Christmas Lights on an extra hour. I am not a sheep.

Now I will get off my soap box with my humble apologies.
