Dear Cohousing List Folks, I want to apologize for sending an off-topic email to this list. Clearly this is strongly disliked by many members of this list. I was a bit confused when other off-topic emails were sent and I guess they must have received an equal amount of angry emails. As a new member of this list, I believe that my mistake was made with the best of intentions. When I have joined other lists there has always been an introduction made by new members and this gave others a chance to get to know them, welcome them, and gently guide them when mistakes were made. In this email I will give a brief introduction of myself and my family. Also, while I haven't found all of my resources, I have included a couple of pieces of info for the few folks who expressed interest in my off-topic email. It will be included at the end and I do expect everyone to take responsibility for choosing whether to read the last paragraph or not. Hi! My name is March, my partner is Jose, and our son is Roman. I am 27, Jose is 44, and Roman is 16 months old. We are members of the Ciel LLC which is building the Duwamish Cohousing Community. We have 23 units under construction and move-in is expected around April. We have a wonderful Common House and a Small Common House being built also. As an urban cohousing community we hope to reach out to our neighbors gradually and become a part of our community rather than remaining isolated. Respecting and Cherishing Diversity and Concern for the Environment are our two main shared goals. I love the opportunity to raise my son in a diverse community...we have various relationships, many adopted children from around the world, medically challenged children, mentally challenged children, religious differences, and other uniquenesses abound! Whoo-hoo! Seventeen children in all and a few more are sure to be born over the years! So much better than this desert of a suburb I currently live in. To see more about our community you can visit our website which is run by one of our members and to see a picture of Roman go to members and check on my name "March"!! Looking forward to learning much from this list! Off-Topic (entering is a choice!) :-> Sadly I cannot find my best resources right now. However a few items of interest...there are several companies that llist the benefit of being "chlorine-free, chemical-free." Another company also specifies that their products are made with organic cotton which is "free of pesticides, chemicals, and chlorine-bleaching. Better for you and the environment." I just think that most companies advertise about issues that customers care about. There may be some substance to what they are suggesting. Here is a general dioxin site: http://www.enviroweb.org/issues/dioxin/index.html#articles Even if we don't absorb dioxin through tampons, the bleaching of the product in the first place increases the amount of dioxin in the environment and thus in us. It gets there one way or another. And when you look at us as members of the Earth Community it becomes quite on-topic I believe. Still, I'll not forward another person's message again...that is the essence of SPAMMING, perhaps? Yours, March
