New Tilley Hat

Earth Hour starts 8:30 Central

The gesture is a good one. A strong symbol with growth potential.

I won't turn off the fridge, microwave (w/clock) or answering machine, but I will shut off the lights and turn off the computer. I may go to the roof (via the stairs) to take pictures of Mpls, or I may read in bed with my LED bedside lamp.

An hour or so away. Get your last twits in...

Earth Hour pictures!

Sometimes, despite the Michele Bachmanns and Tim Pawlentys littering the landscape, I really love Minnesota.
