MISSION, HISTORY & EARTH HOUR 2010
On Earth Hour hundreds of millions of people, organizations, corporations and governments around the world will come together to make a bold statement about their concern for climate change by doing something quite simple—turning off their lights for one hour. In the U.S. where we are already feeling the impacts of climate change, Earth Hour sends a clear message that Americans care about this issue and want to turn the lights out on dirty air, dangerous dependency on foreign oil and costly climate change impacts, and make the switch to cleaner air, a strong economic future and a more secure nation.
Participation is easy. By flipping off your lights on March 27th at 8:30 p.m. local time you will be making the switch to a cleaner, more secure nation and prosperous America. View the toolkits, to find out what else you can do to get involved including leading the Earth Hour movement in your community.

I have been seeing this commercial all over the place and over and over again. I would have shared it sooner but couldn't find it on YouTube until today. I sent Sharp the following email:
"Thank you for using out actor and Star Trek icon George Takei in your Aquos Quattron commercial." You can send Sharp your thanks here.I feel like I should know why George say, "On my!" but I can't place it. Can anyone help me out?

"We're told that Tebow already has gotten a taste of the resistance he might face at the next level. At the Scouting Combine, the Wonderlic exam is administered to players in groups. The 12-minute test is preceded by some brief instructions and comments from the person administering the test. Per a league source, after the person administering the test to Tebow's group had finished, Tebow made a request that the players bow their heads in prayer before taking the 50-question exam. Said one of the other players in response: 'Shut the f--k up.' Others players in the room then laughed."Source Towelroad

Tara returns to Showtime tonight at 10:30 est.
Toni Collette returns in United States of Tara after winning an Emmy and a Golden Globe for her first-season portrayal of Tara Gregson, a mom with dissociative identity disorder.
Season two begins with Tara seemingly having overcome her penchant for yielding her body to alternate personalities. A neighborhood tragedy, though, stirs up buried memories of childhood trauma and the “alters” start to return. A new one appears, too, who’ll share consciousness with Tara.
Partly in her absence, husband Max (John Corbett) gets immersed in a neighborhood investment (ignoring Tara’s reluctance) until it’s revealed that Tara’s alters are getting her in trouble and he begins to get exasperated. Her young teen son, Marshall (Keir Gilchrist), is exploring his sexuality and older teen daughter, Kate (Brie Larson), adopts an online fantasy persona, guided by exotic artist Lynda P. Frazier (guest star Viola Davis).
