Being grouchy about Earth Hour

Yeah, somebody is grouchier than me! Bah, Humbug!

Personally, I think if Nellie can drum it into my kids' heads to turn off the dang-tootin' lights, then more 'power' to her!

An energy concerned home owner could install these nifty wall switches that sense if the room has been vacated and turns off the light.
Or for the more tech savvy, ( I know that's you Mr. A )there's the X10 home automation system.

Or you could just keep smacking the kids on the back of the head till they remember to turn off the lights.

Got some of those, but they don't work with compact fluorescents. Smacking the kids never worked, and now they're all bigger than me!

Then your offspring sound eminently employable and should be given the priviledge of paying the houshold utilities. If the E-bill is low, they pay less. Economics in action.
