Hope me a long-distance 40th birthday gift

A longtime friend (male, FWIW) in Brooklyn is having a surprise 40th birthday party on Saturday 16 JAN 2010. I live across the country and can't attend, but I'd like to have something off-the-wall or oddball delivered to his party, like a singing telegram. Any ideas?

Help Me Make Old New England New.

Coral Castle

Ok, I saw a post here in the past year or so about some strange house a guy built. I believe it was in Florida and has something to do with mystery spots or the like. What I remember is that to this day no one can understand how he built it as some of the doors are 5 ton boulders that swing open with the slightest touch. Google search is coming up blank. Anybody remember the post?
