What kind of stuff/notes have you left for future inhabitants?

As we have remodeled our house, we found two notes from previous owners. One on a switchplate with the year the house was built and who decorated it in 1926. They also scribbled the date under the basement stairs when they redid those.

I am just wondering how many of us are leaving fun things for future generations?

I just sheetrocked up an old medicine cabinet hole in our main floor bath. I left a note about who we are, what year we added on and remodeled, a list of previous owners, and today's newspaper.

We scribbled on the studs in the basement as we finished that also.

Any other good ideas?
