Hey Mich - we did ours last night ( the joys of being the one of the first country in the world to greet each new day).
We had fun - & apart from a couple of lights to stitch by extended it to 3 1/2 hours, no even turning the computers back on before bedtime....*gasp*!
I did the math this morning - pretty amazing!

We tried it, but with a DH who said, "that's a nice idea, but I'm gonna watch the hockey game," we didn't last the whole time. Figuring this might happen, I decided to show the kids some things about how to do things without electricity. We lit candles and talked about how people arranged their day before electric light was available-- talked about doing all you can during daylight and not sleeping past dawn because you lose sunlight time. Talked about what people did to entertain themselves. Talked about winding clocks and not having cordless phones :) It was good, if not entirely what everyone else was doing.

Wow, Deb, you guys did great!

Me... I turned on the lights... I have no desire to live in a cave without electricity... and won't practice doing so even for an hour... Sorry... on this point we'll have to disagree.
