earth hour

So did you manage Earth Hour on Sunday?

We had a great time, switching everything off at 8 and then watching the evening develop (some may say degenerate!) into a family sing-song, the sort of thing I haven't done for several lifetimes! I have a video but not sure anyone here would appreciate it going on, but keep looking ...

The biggest point of the evening is that once cast adrift from all the crap we're surrounded by - TV, rubbish consumer goods, the Pussycat Dolls etc - we're perfectly capable of doing stuff, and really fun stuff at that.

And before you tell me 'that's okay for an hour but how about for a week' I did two years in Scotland without electricity back in the early 90s, and it was great. In fact it's even easier over the long term because you learn new ways of coping.

Can't wait for Earth Hour 2009 - and next time let's all of us get our local councils to turn off the street lights. Fuckers didn't do it round here - too many lefties on the council!
