In my change today I found another bill stamped with “wheresgeorge.com”! I like this. Someone stamped this bill. When you get one in your change from a store or the bank you can enter the bill’s serial number on the wheresgeorge.com website and see how far it’s traveled.
Bill with "wheresgeorge.com" stamp
When you get a bill stamped with “wheresgorge.com”, go to the site and enter the serial number from the bill’s front. The site will ask you for the zip code you found this bill, then your entry becomes part of this bill’s travel history. The Bill Tracking Report (below) shows only one previous entry for my $5 bill. This bill was on the West Coast at Mercer Island, Washington State on New Year’s Day 2012. 115 days later it was in my hands in New York after getting it in change from a local grocery store.
Bill Tracking Report for my $5 bill, from wheresgeorge.com
I don’t stamp bills with “wheresgeorge” but lots of other people do, and it’s perfectly legal. You can also run a report for your zip code and see all the activity for your town. I was amazed at over a hundred entries for April in my area. Other bills I’ve found have nice long tracking reports showing that the bill has traveled many times across many states. I like this stuff.

Triangles by Jim Cutler
Scott is an old friend and creative genius at WLW in Cincinnati. Even though we talk a couple of times a week I rarely get to see him in person. We shot a Reds game at Great American Ballpark and a launch in the press area at NASA, but this was a rare appearance in my town.
Scott Stanley at NASA
Discovery landed in Washington D.C yesterday on the back of a NASA 747. I loved news coverage of all the people who had stopped their cars to watch it “fly” over for the final time. Here’s how it looked when I shot it with photographers Scott Stanley and Len Kay as STS-124 from the press area at NASA. While shooting stills I placed a video camera on a small tripod at the last minute. YOu can hear a little bit of the great Vic Ratner from ABCNEWS calling the launch. He was seated just to my left.
So far these captions over on Facebook:

We lent a hand on the Stone Foxes pledge video for Shannon and the boys.
Drew writes that it took nearly 35,000 individual frames over 7 months to complete this project. This isn’t video, it’s all stills. Check his site: theVoder.com and on Twitter Drew is: @theVoder
