It’s a Derby Baby World. (Well, almost.)

Woo-hoo.  It’s 7:30 AM Mountain Time on May 3 and the “Derby, Baby!” Kickstarter campaign is at 53%.  That rocks; however, if you’re a glass-half-empty person, that means we still have 47% of the way to go, in a mere 19 days!  

If we don’t get to $30,000, we get nothing.  So.. to spur us on as we collectively forward this Kickstarter link to everyone we know, here are some motivational quotes about being part of the way there:
