    I'm going to be blunt because it won't do you any good if I sugar-coat the truth. I'm not in a position to hire anyone, so you can take my opinions for what they're worth, but my initial impression of...

    Whatever it may mean coming from me, which isn't much, I support you in spirit. One of the reasons I got interested in graphic design was that I thought it was very much a "proof is in the pudding"...

      Bob, my grandfather caught me smoking one of his cigs and told me it would kill me....it never stopped me lol. Kids are gonna do what they are gonna do. As for sugary cereal we weren't allowed too much of it because it was expensive. There was 4 little mouths to feed and we could go through a whole box for breakfast. We mostly had oatmeal or corn flakes.

        We only had the sugar-cereals on two occasions: family vacation (we had maybe four of those when I was growing up with my six brothers and sisters), and at my aunt's -- who had only one kid and loved to spoil us rotten.

        But we always had a sugar bowl on the table...

          Yep we had that too. Right next to the salt and pepper and a cup of teaspoons

            My dad cured my brother of smoking. Made him smoke a pack of cigs with a bucket over his head. Made him so sick that to this day he doesn't want to be around them. Me, I was never interested in trying.

              My father on one hand was always worried about us kids rotting our teeth-
              So the sugary cereals and soda were frowned upon.


              Yet, adding a couple teaspoons of sugar on rice crispies was OK.
              and for beverage we either had HiC or powdered "drink".

              Most of the 5 of us had tremendous and numerous cavities.

                Sounds exactly my house growing up! And there were 5 of us kids, too!

                  We had the original Koolade. Very few sodas, and mom kept the sugar in the cabinet.

                    We had the sugar bowl on a lazy susan on the table with salt, pepper, and various other things. I believe I've only had a couple of cavities in my life. My mom attributes it to very high occurrences of fluoride naturally in the water where I grew up. Got me.

                    I learned my lesson spelunking for goodies in the cupboard when I found a huge chocolate bar stashed towards the back. A Kind I had never heard of. Baking chocolate. yuck.

                      Did that as well.


                      I once had an idiot neighbor tell me about a trip to Jamaica that he and his wife took.
                      He went into a store, saw "Bay Rum" bought a bottle and took a swig.

                        I knew what it was, having seen my Mom make fudge from scratch. I could do so many things, surely I could manage that too, right? Well, until I learned how critical it is to follow instructions completely, NO.

                        Did you know that melting sugar in a cast-iron pan forms a kind of glass layer that's nearly impossible to remove? =>_<= Hoo hah, did I ever make a mess that day. Didn't get any homemade fudge for a long time either.

                          My siblings and I will likely die of aspartame poisoning as my brother is Diabetic. So we grew up in a house of 'sugar' cereal (so say frosted flakes) only on Saturdays (as that way we burned it all off playing). Our cookies, drinks and everything else "sweet" was always made with aspartame or splenda. It's my excuse for being a sugar fiend today is that I was deprived as a chid.
