May 24th, 2015: I found that coin in my change buying food from the Mexican restaurant at Lick Mill & Tasman in Santa Clara. At the time the San Jose Earthquakes were hosting some other team in a match in Levi's Stadium, across the road and up a block or so. In other news, I'm very happy with this camera's ability to photograph coins. Thank you Sony!

The picture above was taken on 10/21/08. The ones below are mostly older.

We held the Green Party Nominating in Wisconsin, and the slogan on the T Shirt I got there was "FORWARD 2004!" Since then, every time I've seen "FORWARD" used in a slogan it gave me that "we are moving forward together" feeling.

The Spanish missions in Florida are something like a hundred years older than the ones in Califoria, which is one of the reasons many of ours are tourist attractions and most of theirs are gone. My cousin in Florida said "the spirit of Florida is a jumble of old and new". Looking at their quarter, with a sailing ship and the space shuttle, it captures that feeling.

The truth comes out...
