It was Earth Hour this weekend. I hope everyone celebrated it. Yes, I think of it as a celebration. People are sniping about how the electricity usage didn't go down, that it's a sham. How cynical. You can't just shut off the lights, and enjoy the darkness? Being able to see your dinner companion's face is overrated. At times, I'd very much prefer to listen to her voice instead, which is what we did - we experienced the food and the wine, and the conversation in a completely different manner. And it worked - the wine certainly tasted phenomenal.
Maybe I'll start making this a regular feature for my dinners.DF
