Are you going dark tonight?

Last night Rob and I had a great time. We went to the Lamplighter hotel for our Thai food only to discover that the restaurant is now closed....; (((. But just down the street was the newly relocated Ann's Thai Food and the food was extraordinary. We have eaten at Ann's before or had take away, but the last couple times we ate there it wasn't as good as it had been in the past. Behold they have a beautiful little dining area and the best Thai I have ever eaten along with the most yummy Thai tea that kept me awake half the night, but it was so very yummy it was ALMOST worth it.
Then we saw The Other Boelyn Girl which was a great history lesson. World history is not my strong point, but I love to learn about it as it is so fascinating. For those of you who don't know, which you probably do, Ann Boelyn is Queen Elizabeth's mother who is beheaded after she reaks havoc with England and the Catholic Church. England would have looked very different today had it not been for Ann.

Is anybody going dark tonight at 8pm (local time)?

We are not going to be participating in the black out tonight. We are not going to be out and about with the power out all over either. I will be anxious to see if there is an increase in theft etc though.

Love,
Becky

I was at a fundraising event in Corpus Christi and we had an accidental power outage in the middle of our live auction that lasted a good 30-45 minutes. I actually thought about the Go Dark Night when it happened and chuckled.

Well, I'm feeling a little "in the dark" I guess I don't watch enough tv. I've never even heard of it but I love the idea. I like it when people get together to do something good on a massive scale. It makes you feel connected. Maybe there will be more publicity "like ringing my doorbell and telling me TURN OFF my LIGHTS" It couldn't hurt my ridiculous electric bill. I like candles anyway. How about starlight? Let's do it! - Next Year?
