The Empire State Building and me

Going home-home for an extended weekend actually means I can waste spend some time on my old computer and enjoy the following (Kenyan) sticker on the keyboard:


This computer urgently needs to be fixed (Ubuntu on a USB key is a wonderful life saviour), but I was actually much more interested in rummaging in those drawers under the table.

So I found this medal from Empire State Building in the USA:


…with my name on the back, dated July 23, 1979


Today is July 23, 2009.

This coincidence just made my day. I haven’t been there since July 23 1979 and I am wondering if they still produce these medals?
