Google is so cool.

Although I hate the fact that Google is EVERYWHERE ... and I hate their toolbar and/or all their crappy "tools", but I love what they do on holidays and the like

Check em out today. And yes, our lights are OUT. Why? I dunno. Probably because the sun is out for the first time in months.

Re: Google is so cool.

Google has a theme for every holiday too.

That is cool though.

I did the same thing...I can hear the fish bumping into the glass behind me...guess they cant see in the dark.

Re: Google is so cool.

Lights out, Guys!! Global initiative to have everybody on the planet turn their lights off tonight from 8 - 9 pm. Guess you are already in the dark

Wish I still had the Mooney - would be a cool flight tonight over a big city like Toronto to see just how effective this initiative has been.

As responsible earth lovers, my wife and I are going to do our part but then again, the light in the dog-house where I live doesn't use much juice. Got sent there yesterday when "she who must be obeyed" got stuck with scraping her car clean again cuz the LT is enjoying its place of honour in the garage!

They didn't do it on iGoogle either. Thanks for the heads up.

I forgot to turn on my front and back porch light last night!

Had plenty of lights around here.

Re: Google is so cool.

My family went without a single light for the whole hour. My son even showered in the dark.

Just trying to do our part, I guess. Besides, it was fun.
