Hadn't heard about this (if not for your site, I'd practically be in the dark). What an impactful sight. Most "massed item" displays have been sorrowful- AIDS quilt squares, Holocaust victims shoes... How perfect this is, now. Did you take the picture? So cool. It mirrors your leaf-covered lane shot :-)

Hi Rachel - I did take the shot. It was pretty touching running into it. We have an editor at Tor that has a little girl - she comes around once a year collecting coins for the Penny Harvest and I dump in whatever has amassed over the year. I never really thought about what it added up to and then suddenly I ran into this huge square of coins, 8 inches thick. Pretty cool.

That is so cool! I had never heard of this. What great images and what a fantastic idea.

I was Just there Dec. 20th and saw this for the first time. It's pretty damn amazing. The little mirrors they had at each end amplified what was already an enormous amount of copper and "some" silver thrown in the mix. I threw in two quarters (big spender) haha... throwing money in a big box, who knew it could be so much fun. Still waiting for that wish to come true.

Hey Mike - I threw in a extra couple of wishes myself. Cheers to the new year!

I like a game which you need uselast chaos goldto play. If you want to be online to play this game, I can borrow lastchaos goldto you. When you have lastchaos money, and than you can go on this game. Of cause, when you are first to play, you can buy last chaos gold. If you have enough cheap lastchaos gold, you will be able to different games.

Do you like playing the game where you need to use priston tale Gold, when you do not have priston tale Money, you must borrow it from friends, or you buy priston tale Gold. If you getcheap priston tale Gold, you can continue this game.
