    Good job everybody. If yall add another award I'd suggest something akin to 'Enthusiast'. There are a number of youngsters that I chat with on here who really show a spark and passion for farming, a pat on the back would do wonders for them and may draw more of the younger crowd via word of mouth. Just a thought.
