      I'm curious when the first mini museums are scheduled to ship. I know things are tracking behind schedule right now but I don't recall seeing an update on when we might expect to receive our items in a while.

      Of all the projects I have funded these are the updates I enjoy the most. The guide looks great. I appreciate the effort you put in to keep us informed.

      Hans, again and again I am reminded by your updates how amazing this project is. Thank you!

      Hans, I am so very excited at the progress and look forward to my own mini museum. Wish I could have afforded the large one for all the cool specimens (and the mystery item) nonetheless, I will be thrilled to hold it in my hands! The book looks like it will be fanastic!

      Hans, have to agree with Gale. Each email you share gets me more excited about this project. Your pure joy of discovery is exuded through these updates and is infectious. I can't wait to see it all, read the wonderful book, learn and share. I am humbled to be part of your journey. Feel like a better vantage than behind the scenes at the Smithsonian. Thank you. You rock! (No pun intended!)

      Great update! So awesome to see all specimens prepared. The book looks amazing. I love the small inlay photos of the small specimen bits. I'm looking forward to receiving this final product more than I can explain.
