How should we celebrate three years?

As this month’s b-metro column suggests, I’ve been thinking about how to celebrate three years of existence.

Yeah, it seems quite weird to think it’s been three years already, but it will be a week from Sunday…

So after I realized that I wasn’t doing a good job coming up with ideas myself, I thought it would be best to turn to all of you.

How do you think we should celebrate our third anniversary?

Whatever it is will probably not happen on March 14 itself but later on in the month – that’s the hope at least. (BTW – yes, that image you see above is of the front page of The Terminal from April 2007). Things have changed, haven’t they? Share your suggestions in the comments section.

Don’t forget to turn out the lights

Vote earth adGranted, if you’re reading this tonight (Saturday) between 8:30 and 9:30 p.m., this becomes pointless, but hopefully we’ll catch you beforehand. This evening marks the second year for the recognition of Earth Hour internationally. The World Wildlife Fund hopes that more than 1 billion people will participate in voluntarily to raise awareness about the issue of climate change. It’s already happened in Malaysia as it’s based on local time. Here in Alabama, the city of Huntsville will be participating; you can find other cities participating listed here. For those of you trying to think of things to do during Earth Hour, here are seven suggestions courtesy of care2.com

Finding way to stay cool over on Timetable

While some would like to use the fountain in Linn Park to stay cool, but we’re pretty sure that the folks in City Hall would appreciate it if you didn’t. Charles figured that he’d offer a few suggestions for places that wouldn’t mind seeing you visit to keep cool (and hopes you’ll add to his list) over on Timetable.
