    Be sure to read through the entire message. It's not until you get to the end that you realize they are calling for you to turn your lights OFF. :)

    I assumed as much so was confused at the opening paragraph where it wasn't made clear.

    Nice initiative, Brit. Thanks for letting us know about it! I'll put it on the calendar and hope it makes a difference!

    i did it last year but didn't know about it until the last minute. I found people were either for or against- no happy medium. I'm not wishing to preach, just to let people know it is occuring.

    I tried to get everyone to do this on a couple of forums last year and you wouldn't believe the grief i got.

    I will be joining you again this year though Julie.

    That's just silly, to give you grief. It's an initiative! If someone wants to participate, fine! If they don't that's ok too. I appreciate having the information so I can make my own decision.

    Heck, if Brit hadn't told me about it here, I might not ever have heard about it.

    I didn't know they were doing it again this year either so i'm gratefull to Julie too.

    I just re read some of the threads from my last year's thread 'elsewhere' and the amount of sarcasm and hints of 'it's a waste of time' are unbelievable!
