I was a day late and a dollar short for St. Patrick's Day this year, but I made up for it last night by being a day early for Earth Hour. (I'm still a dollar short, however.) Earth Hour is actually tonight, 8:30 - 9:30. Yahoo! has a cute logo vignette about it, and a story about Sydney, Australia being the first major city to mark the hour this year - the event actually started in Sydney a few years ago. An Orlando Sentinel story reports that Orlando will be participating - there's an interesting twist about an Orlando Utilities building that you'll want to read about.
So I'll be sitting in the dark again tonight (pay no attention to those who maintain that being in the dark is my normal state). There will be no more photos of my lighted flamingo, however.
