"What do you think, that I work for the power company?"

This entry is a tribute to my Dad and every time he shut the lights off when we forgot! A real simple green idea for each day is to turn off the lights when you aren't needed them. My kids are notorious for this as I was...a passing of the torch literally. However, for one week, let's just pay attention to our habits: do we leave the lights on when we leave the room? is the TV always on? are there things that we could shut down like our computers? Conservation is an incredibly empowering act...especially when one considers that it leaves more green in our pockets! So, Dad, for all those times I rolled my eyes when you complained about us wasting...I finally understand how hip you are! :)
