Try this:

<asp:TextBox id="txtDepartureFrom" onblur="TextChanged(this)" Runat="server"></asp:TextBox>

The keyword "me" represents the current object in VB, but the onblur function is javascript code that will be executed on the client side.  You need to use "this" which represents the current element in javascript, just like TheLearnedOne mentioned.

I have never known 'Me' to work.
