We shall be out during the Earth Hour, so the lights and computers will be off anyway.
I'm not sure what our hosts will say when we arrive with a bunch of candles and a camping gas stove!!   :clapping:

Off to write myself two notes, because one wasn't enough the last time  ::) Mustn't forget the clocks either.......

Powered down for 1 hour and 15 minutes... The big spider living in the main fuse box wasn't too happy at the interuption and I wasn't too keen sticking my hand in the dark box to switch us back on again...

We cooked our dinner and ate it by candlelight which would have been quite romantic if we weren't so knackered from getting this place ready for the imminent Iberianature forum summit.....

Still we did our bit I suppose but the result is me feeling rather melancholy

I am not sure what difference we make... Our power usage is tiny in comparison to say a big supermarket on the Costa del sol that is lit 24 hours a day with super hot 500 watt bulbs etc...

So much for turning the power off for an hour on Saturday night as with the moon giving only a gentle glow this morning i had to put the lights on!

Just a thought, but, how much power would be saved if the Sydney Opera House (and all such landmarks) were to only put the lights on for one hour each night, and would they be any less a tourist attraction??
