Have you ever visited Warm Glow Candle Outlet in Indiana.
It's located at exit 145 and I-70.
Thanks for the location! I saw some images of this on Flickr, but hadn't found out where, exactly, it is... Thank you for the information and image - now I can update the Indiana listing.

World Record Harvest in Kansas
A Record Setting Harvest was done in 2008, in Norton Kansas. 160 acres was harvested with 100 combines and several grain trucks in 10 minutes and 15 seconds.
This record will be entered into the Guinness World Record archives, and proceeds from this harvest will go to a kids camp. That's how we do it in Kansas!

This is not the world's largest rocking chair
I am sorry, you do not have the largest rocking chair. The world's largest rocking chair is along US 281 in Texas. Everything is bigger in TEXAS.

Erika, Did you hear about the worlds largest rocking chair in Fanning, MO.? They are going for the Guinness record in a couple weeks. fanning66outpost.com
Also on your list. unfortunately they tore down Noah's Ark in St. Charles on 08-28-2007. To put up what? You guessed it, a shopping mall.
Oooh, didn't hear about the Rocking Chair record - thanks for the tip! And, always sad to see another roadside attraction go, especially for a mall or parking lot or the like... Thanks for keeping me posted on Missouri Big Things!

Chicken crosses the road, then abandoned by thief
Why did the chicken cross the road? In the case of Jerry Sleater's 5-foot, 400-pound bright blue rooster, that's apparently as far as whoever was trying to steal it could get it.
When the 76-year-old Eastern Washington man went to get his newspaper Thursday morning, the big bird named Rudy was lying beside the road.
Sleater has kept the metal rooster perched on his property south of Kennewick for two years and says, "Rudy is a family pet. He doesn't go anywhere, but he's part of the family."
Sleater said he thinks that whoever was trying to steal Rudy got spooked after pushing the oversized rooster down a dirt embankment.
He said he purchased Rudy two years ago from a yard ornament store that was going out of business.

Home Again - for a bit!
Thanks, WLT Fans! We handed out over 750 postcards promoting WLT Inc. and the website to get those stories out there. Embarrased to tell the last person at the truck stop (11:00 p.m. last night) that he had the last one of the ones I brought for the event... Yay!
