I had heard on the radio a short blurb about "National Shutdown Day" being Saturday May 3rd (today). Only problem is I didn't hear about what we were shutting down. I had initially thought it was something like "National Lights Out day" (which I also missed).
So, today, I light up my computer and do a Live search on what it's all about. Well, I blew it. It's about turning off your computer for 1 day - as I'm reading that on my turned on computer (haven't figure out how to use it w/ out the power on) and typing this and also checking weather, some blogs, and my calendar.
