The Chemical Scorecard. Find out by zipcode who's polluting where, what they're spewing, is it airborne or waterborne, how badly, and - if you're interested - what you can do to help in the fight against it.
Folks call me Sunni. My family calls me by my given name, Colleen. I used to live in the rain shadow of the Siskiyou Mountains just a stone's throw from three volcanoes - Mt. Shasta, Mt. McLaughlin and Crater Lake (once known as Mt. Mazama) and walking distance to the northern California border. Country of the gods! However, my wife and I moved to Whidbey Island in the Puget Sound, Washington in 2006. Another paradise!
I live with my wife, our son and his partner and two cats on a seven acre family compound - 2.7 acres belong to us. Next door is my brother with his youngest grandson and next to him is his daughter with her husband. Behind our homes is five acres of coastal rain forest. It's never dull.
I come from a wacky family filled with love and laughter. All the brothers, sisters, parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, wives, and husbands get along - and there's a lot of us. The Ozzie and Harriet lifestyle really does exist for some of us!
I'm not a great talker when I meet people face to face, but I have the gift of gab when given a keyboard. I took some Creative Writing classes from a most remarkable teacher and was given the tools to paint word pictures with. You'll find a link to those stories above in Current Projects.
Also, I'm a compulsive reader. So you'll find other peoples' stories that touched my heart linked above in Current Projects. I hope you will enjoy them, too.
Crafting and artwork is an obsession of mine and now I am able to indulge myself. While I do lots of different kinds of crafts, my favorites remain working with polymer clay, papermaking from plants, hobby photography and making jewelry. Since my retirement, my craftwork has continued to move to new levels. I am an instructor for papermaking, polymer clay and wire worked jewelry. If you're curious please check out my business website HERE.
I also love to give things away, so I hope you go to the section in Current Projects above!!
