Ok, this is just a random thought that ran across my mind, but does anyone else think it might be a nice idea to award extra acorns for particularly good tips that get over a certain number of "thumbs ups?" Like maybe an extra acorn for every 10 "thumbs ups" or something like that?

Sherri, in this case, I think <<10 " thumbs up " >> doesn't mean both hands up Hurray!


PS Sorry, I try to joke. But I do not know how it sounds my joke in English, for a native speaker of English. I hope that does not sound bad.

Justin has a wonderful sense of humor & it translates to English perfectly!

I like this acorn idea too. Thumbs up
I am a strong believer in the simple fact is that what matters in this life is how we treat others. I think that's what living is all about. Not what I've done in my life but how I've treated others.
