Earth Hour Tonight

At 8:30pm tonight, your local time, I recommend you and your family turn out your lights for an hour.

While it’s a symbolic gesture more than anything, it’s a fun way to show others you care about the world we live in together.  Take a walk around the neighborhood, eat dinner or dessert by candlelight, talk with your family and friends under the light of the moon…

For just one hour you’ll be experiencing the same thing millions of others will be doing around the world.

Learn more about Earth Hour here.


I’ll be back soon, everyone.  Apologies for my disappearance!  I was ill and it took a while to recover fully.  I lost a lot of energy and time, which ate into my time dedicated to writing.  I miss you all.  See you soon.
