Join Us

Tonight we celebrate Earth Hour from 8:30-9:30 pm. The World Wildlife Fund is asking everyone on the planet to turn off their lights for one hour as a show of our commitment to finding solutions to climate change.

John and I wondered what we'd do with a whole hour away from our computers. Then we thought of something.

One little hour seems a small amount of time to show support for the entire future of our planet. I hope you'll join us. I mean that figuratively. Don't come over. Do something at your house.

But you could join us this afternoon at the San Gabriel Valley Bloggers' Potluck. Bloggers, friends, families, fans and lurkers are all invited. It would be lovely to see you there!

Let there be candlelight...

Cafe Pasadena said...

If we all turned off the lights, would we be able to see the Milky Way candy, I mean, sand of stars in the darkened sky of the LA basin?

Dina said...

Candles in the garden! What a romantic picture.
From how you write, it seems your hour may turn into two.
But sitting at home alone in the dark... It reminds me of the old joke about the Sacrificing Jewish Mother: How many Jewish sons does it take to change a light bulb. Answer: none. "Don't worry, son. Don't bother to come all the way over. I'll just sit here in the dark."

Dina cracked me up. The hopeless romantic that I am swooned over this gorgeous photo!! Oh my. I'm humming "Isn't It Romantic"!

PS If KM doesn't get here soon we won't make the picnic on time! I'll expect a blow by blow account of that rowdy picnic with photos as well. YOu might have to muzzle CP. Arrrffff

I was going to say something about 30 minutes, but not when I have to see them this afternoon.

excellent photo to bring awareness to earth hour!

Margaret said...

The candlestick, in the garden, and it was Colonel Mustard. Guess I'll be doing with the kids when it's light's out?

Petrea said...

Shell, we shall.

We'd have to turn off everything, Cafe. I have my doubts.

I know the joke, Dina! As for two hours, read what Altadenahiker said. Then again, like she said, she has to see us this afternoon.

It should be fun, Virginia. You and all the out-of-towners will be missed. I won't need to muzzle C.O., I'll just sic Boz at him.

Thank you, Julie SDP.

Margaret, will you play by candlelight?

Ms M said...

Lovely, romantic photo. And an hour in candlelight in the right company can lead to exquisite things...

Good call, but I can not follow it, because in my house, there is a baby aged 2 months.

Pascal Jim said...

What a keen method to signal our watchers from space. This code, as lights go out in the various time zones, will send the message.
(whatever that is)

Christie said...

I can't imagine not being able to see the stars every night(except with there are rain clouds or snow clouds). That is just so foreign a concept....

Petrea said...

Christie, there are people who grew up here in the city who have no idea what it means to see the Milky Way the way you see it. I miss those nights, and travel out of town to see them when I can.

Ms. M, I'm glad you see romance of the photo.

Poor Tikno! No lights out, and probably no sleep right now, with a baby in the house!

I don't know what the message is, P. Jim, but I'm not afraid. You tell 'em they can watch us, but we've got Christie watching them, too.
