Earth Hour 2008

Earth hour has come to London, Ontario! Check it out at . Along with a link to the Earth Hour website, there were some suggestions about what to do during the one hour without gadgets and screens.

One suggestion was to play hide and go seek with your children. I was reminded of a game I used to play as a youngster with cousins and friends when the adults were "visiting" (read playing cards and knocking back a few) that we called Ghost Tag.

You could only play ghost tag in the dark and outside. It was similar to hide and go seek but scarier. Hunters could sneak up unseen on their prey in the dark and hearing the shrieks of your friends when they got caught just increased the anticipation/dread/heart attack when you were finally grabbed from behind without warning. It was great fun...for those who survived!

Check out for more information and sign yourself up. See if your city is taking part.
