    Help with daughter's art project

    Since I consider this forum to be extended family, I'd like to ask for some non-pool, family-type help. My daughter made a blog for a college design class, and she will get extra points for hits.
    If anyone would visit her blog at http://blog.scad.edu/hstato20/, I would greatly appreciate it.

    Thanks!

    Done. No school has a better acronym than SCAD.

    Thanks. And yep, SCAD is a great art school, but we've had a lot of fun with the acronym. Well, mostly me.

    I went there too.

    I guess SCAD is better that SCAB or SCAT.

    Re: Help with daughter's art project

    I really appreciate the support. She had to build a blog for her digital graphics class, and it's sort of new for her - it's definitely not her preferred medium, as she's more of a 'fantasy/anime' type.
    She did well with the setup, and she does have a certain... um... style of writing, so I'm pretty comfortable that she'll score well on her project, but she gets credits for hits as well.
    And Heather sends "A big thanks to all who visit."

    Your daughter has a very good grasp of the language and writes in a very entertaining manner. She may not "prefer" it but she's good at it.

    Is it OK for me to respond on her site? (I saw a couple things in her blogs that I thought of commenting on, but wasn't sure she wanted input from her father's pool site friends 8) )

    Heather is creative and insightful (IF you can get on the same page she is on

    Congrats on a great daughter!!

    Sure, she appreciates pretty much all comments. Fortunately, our daughters still appreciate being associated with their family. Good kids - smart, don't drink, smoke or do drugs, have all been through AP or honors classes, and all have maintained 3.9+ GPAs. Aside from the occasional boyfriend sniffin' around, we really don't have much to complain about with them. Well, other than the cost. And the sheer volume of estrogen flowing around with three daughters. And the things that hang from the shower rod. And they like vegetables. Oh, and the hair. Holy ****, the hair. Excuse me, now I have this sudden urge to stomp a spider or change the oil in something.

    Thanks for the kind words. We're all a little outside the box here.

    Re: Help with daughter's art project

    I would like to thank everyone for their visits and comments. This forum (along with a couple of rabbits that I may have pulled out of my hat) was instrumental in putting SOMEONE's daughter's blog at the top of the search engines. A search for "living falling down" (with quotes) has her number 1 on google, ask, live and technorati. Only hit second on yahoo, though. Not bad for a five day week.
    Thanks, everyone!
