Earth Hour is an annual international event created by the WWF (World Wide Fund for Nature/World Wildlife Fund), held on the last Saturday of March, that asks households and businesses to turn off their non-essential lights and electrical appliances for one hour to raise awareness towards the need to take action on climate change. It was pioneered by WWF Australia and the Sydney Morning Herald in 2007, and achieved worldwide participation in 2008.

Earth Hour will take place on Saturday, March 26, 2011 at 8:30 pm, local time.*

Friday, March 25th, 2011

Pecan Day
Why should that damn peanut get all the attention? Always looking smug in his top hat, spats and monocular.

Well its time for that tastier cousin, Pecan, to take his place in your life.

Lets look at the facts – peanuts basically make peanut butter. Whoopdie Do!

Ah – but the Pecan is part of such wondrous and tasty delights as Pecan Pie and Pralines and Cream Ice Cream! (Yum Yum!)

And while we’re at it – today’s the anniversary of the planting of Pecan trees at George Washington’s Mount Vernon home by none other than George himself. Oh, and those trees? Why they were a gift from Thomas Jefferson!

Maybe it’s time to send that peanut packing back to Jimmy Carter, cause its pecan time now!
