I was being slightly facetious here (maybe I should have put in the 
smiley face).

I just meant to *watch* the potential lady lions, not award it 
prematurely. It's not like there's an equivalent to squires/cadets/ 
apprentices in the persona development field.

And whenever someone around here felt that they hadn't earned an award 
they had received, it's usually made them work harder.

Well, I must admit that I've not sent any in. The idea of suggesting 
someone's name for the *Lion* has simply not occurred to me, probably 
because of the special nature and high reverence that is accorded the 
recipients of this award. I've sent in many names for various other, 
lower-, mid-, and high-level, awards. Quite a few have been granted, 
some have not. But now that you've shaken me out of this particular rut, 
I will give some thought to who, among my acquaintance (which is 
limited), could be overlooked and deserving of this award.
