Sydney Australia began Earth Hour in 2007. That first year, two million people participated. As evidence that many of us really do care about the environment, the event grew to 50 million people last year. Earth Hour is going to be even better this year with cities, corporations, and people from 84 different countries taking part.

This year, I am asking that you participate. This Saturday, between 8:30 and 9:30 pm (in your respective time zone), turn off or dim your lights to show that you care about the environment and want to do your part to slow global warming. If the lights of the Las Vegas Strip and McDonald’s golden arches can be dimmed, then surely yours can too. So, grab a book and a candle or snuggle up to a loved one, and turn off those lights at 8:30 this Saturday!

Thank you!

I set up a Twitter profile a few months ago, when invited by ReachMD. Since then, I haven’t played around with it much. Dave brought it up in conversation a couple of days ago, however, so I visited the site. I updated my profile and began ‘following’ a few people of interest. Of all the people in my address book, only one of you have an account. So, I’m inviting you all to head to http://www.Twitter.com and set up your own account. Watch, it’s the next big thing!

My New Site

Hello everyone! As you know, my site has been down for a few weeks. Sorry to keep you all in suspense, but I’ve swapped my site hosting account to another company and, as a result, need to transfer my site files as well. I’ve never done this, so keep your fingers crossed that I can get everything set up okay. For now, just know that I’ll be back soon.

Take care!
