My co-worker, Shelly, sent out a list of websites to familiarize potential candidates with the Seattle area. I thought "hey, potential candidates read my blog!" Of course I added to the document because someone thought of including hiking but not shopping and completely forgot doggies...go figure! OK, now the document may be skewed a little toward my interests, but what can I do? Unfortunately, we don't know who authored the original document (it's one of those documents that's gotten passed down and around through the years), so apologies for not attributing much of this content to someone (but if you think you wrote it, let me know so I can give you your props).


Anyway, good links to info on the area...
