  1. Oh, now you've gone and done it. I JUST got done balancing the checkbook and said, "OK, no more coins." Now you MADE me go and buy 2 sets. (Yes I will trade )
  2. I was out shopping today when I passed by the Valentines stuff. I kept saying "Ooo, I could buy that for the V-day X-change... and that.... and that... and that." I am getting excited, and I don't even have my name yet! Oh, this is going to be fun. (Yes, I'm a dork.)
  3. They do? If so, it is location dependent. (The one buy me does not.)
  4. Whoot! Got my coins today. Have to say I think these are one of my favorites. Love the coin, love the message. Job well done!
  5. Whoo Hoo! Congrats on hitting 2000!
  6. I like the idea of honoring a dearly departed... (I had a coin made in the memory of my cat) but to actually have a coin with someone in it.. ick! I would never want to touch it. If you have one coin made and you carry it around, maybe... but I don't want it. I like the idea of the candle coin.
  7. I started collecting late 2006 and was bit HARD. I have hundreds (thousand? ) of coins and loved the personal coins. I never saw the need to get every edition, every color and didn't really understand the idea of the LE, XLE, XXLE, AE, SE and so on. (Even though I do like to get the LE and XLEs. I do that because there were fewer numbers.) There just became too many commercial coins and too many versions for my taste. So I took a year off. I stopped buying coins, I stopped trading coins, but I continued to drop coins in caches. I just pulled out my collection, dusted it off and am starting to thin it out again. I have begun to buy coins again and want to do more trading. I still will try to stay away from commercial coin, but there are a few I like. With so many coins coming out each day, it's hard to keep up with it. There are so many coins that I never knew existed and had never seen. I like the smaller run coins, I like the personal, I like the one on one trading, I liked to see others coins and know them. All of this has changed. I am not sure that I would say that interest has gone down, I just think that people are being more selective.
  8. What a great cointest. 1. Go to the gym 3 days a week. 2. Stop procrastinating. 3. Organize my coins. (See #5) 4. Make more trades. (Look out peeps, here she comes! See #3 & #5 ) 5. Thin out my coin collection. 6. Organize my apartment. 7. Pay bills on time. (See #2) 8. Hit 4000 caches by the end of the year. 9. Add 8-9 new states to the map. 10. Keep this year resolutions.
  9. Email sent. No too sure of what I'm getting into, but it sounds like fun.
  10. Yes. The symbols are standing on the center.

  13. What a neat cointest. I leaned a lot, thanks! 1 – What is the meaning of the Inuksuk? It is a monument used for communication and survival that is usually made of un-worked stones. Inuksuit (plural) have been used by the Inuit people as guides and markers for special places in the Arctic, marking trails, caches of food, nearby people, or the migration routes of caribou. Such a marker is of considerable importance on a landscape that could be otherwise featureless or constantly changing because of ice and snow. These "signposts" were essential for survival and Inuit tradition forbids their destruction. An inuksuk-like monument in the form of a human being is called an inunnguaq (an imitation of a person). These seem to have been a recent development and many inunnguat (plural) are being built by non-Inuit but are incorrectly called inuksuit. 2 – Where are the Olympic Games being held? Vancouver BC and Whistler BC 3 – Today’s (Dec. 29) Torch Run started “where” and will end “where”? Started at 7:00 in Owen Sound and will in Barrie 4 – When and where was the first Winter Olympic games held?

Miga, Quatchi and Sumi. 7 – Community Celebrations will be held at a nearby community, where? West Vancouver community centre Spirit square 8 – Ok time for the hard one, who will is the final torch bearer to the Community Cauldron Lighting ? Olympic gold medallist Katie Weatherston will be the final torch bearer when it passes through Thunder Bay on Jan. 3.
