Puget Sound is a sound in the U.S. state of Washington and part of the Salish Sea. It is a complex estuarine system of interconnected marine waterways and basins, with one major and one minor connection to the Strait of Juan de Fuca and the Pacific Ocean — Admiralty Inlet being the major connection and Deception Pass being the minor.

PART II THE WEST IS THE BEST “In the Desert of the heart, Let the healing start; In the prison of his days, Teach the free man to praise.” W.H.Auden - 38. BY THE POOL IN GRAND JUNCTION After her repeated request to get us to stay a little while longer, I have to decline Delta Danni's offer. I couldn't thank her enough for all she had done for us, but my feets were ready to move towards Puget Sound so it was time to get this stone a rolling. Danni hooks us up with some road food; raisins, fresh fruit, some dry drink mix, a few other necessary items. She also gave me a tent she had bought recently at a yard sale. She knows that Seattle is the rainy city and that we would need cover sooner than later. It would save us from getting soaked more than once in the next few weeks. It will later meet its demise at The Coyote Graveyard. I'll get to that. We offer to pay her, but the efforts were pointless. Danni knows the theory of Pay It Forward, RAK'S and I think she was returning some Kindness back into the w ...

As many of you are aware, I have never made a paycheck from Service Dog Academy. Sadly my soon to be ex husband no longer wants to support me, Liame, Lilly or Service Dog Academy. If anyone in the puget sound area knows of any pro bono or reduced cost lawyers who can help me with the separation process I would greatly appreciate the referral. (Please do not use this request for help as a space to put my soon to be Ex down. He was a good man who just had issues I was unable to help him with. I wish him luck as he seeks to find something to make him as happy as I have become teaching diabetic alert dog training.)
Kirkland, WA, March 5, 2013 – Real estate brokers around Washington state agree today’s market is far different than two years ago, with one industry veteran summing it up by saying key indicators “are in perfect alignment for a spring market to remember.” On the plus side, closed sales during February jumped more than 9 percent from a year ago and median sales prices are up 13 percent according to new figures from Northwest Multiple Listing Service. Last month’s pending sales across the 21 counties served by Northwest MLS also increased, but only slightly (1.7 percent) due in part to depleted inventory. “In my 37 years working in the real estate industry, I have never seen inventory this low,” remarked Diedre Haines, regional managing broker for Coldwell Bank Bain-Snohomish County and a member of the Northwest MLS board of directors. The number of active listings system-wide is down 29 percent from a year ago, with three counties reporting even more contraction: Snohomish County (-47.7 perc ...

Well, it looks like it's getting close to decision time at the old Ponderosa. I got a job offer back in the Puget Sound commencing August 2, 2013. Less than 5 months away and lots of things to consider. Don't know how long I will last here if I decline the move but it won't be much, if any, past that August 2 date. I've spent a lot of time away from home in the last 10 or 12 years and missed out on a lot of things. Now we (Karen and I) need to decide if I should spend another 2 or 3 years away from home for a little more money every month or stay here, take the layoff, find a little something to do job wise and semi-retire. Lotsa pieces in this jigsaw puzzle and I'm not quite sure how they will fit together! Actually have about 60-90 days to pull the trigger and make the final decision, like no later than the middle of May. Hopefully between now and then there will be a sign (preferably a big bright neon job) to guide me in the right direction. Wish us luck!

The book of Revelation details the destruction of a city built on 7 hills that "sitteth upon many waters." Turns out there is a city that fits that description better than Rome (which has just 2 rivers and sits next to 1 large body of water): Seattle! is surrounded by several lakes, bays, rivers, and Puget Sound, and was built on the hills First, Yesler, Renton, Denny, Capitol, Queen Anne, and Beacon. I guess we are safe until a *** riding a giant monster shows up. Hm note to self, Do Not Ride on any Giant Monsters in Seattle !!

From the Seattle Daily Journal of Commerce: March 7, 2013 More green roofs, swales and rain gardens for city? By JOURNAL STAFF Yesterday Seattle Mayor Mike McGinn announced a plan to treat Seattle's stormwater runoff using natural drainage systems rather than the traditional pipes and tanks. McGinn said in a press release that his executive order is among the first of its kind in the nation. The order directs city departments to significantly increase the use of natural drainage systems to clean polluted water by filtering it through vegetation and soil. The goal is to manage 700 million gallons of stormwater annually with green infrastructure by 2025. “Seattle residents and businesses care about the environment,” McGinn said, “and that's why we are inviting the whole community to join us in this effort.” The city council will consider the goal later this month. Green infrastructure includes bioretention swales, rain gardens, stormwater cisterns, pervious pavement and green roofs. The mayor said t ...

Ack! This one reason is why we oppose increased coil train traffic through our region. While the coal industry keeps saying these derailments are rare, they are too frequent for our taste.

Puget Sound Argus, Friday, September 16, 1881 .this institution now has 98 inmates, 73 men and 23 women I presume some of our lady women's right orators would say that the above is a fair representation of the state--3 insane men to one woman. There is the usual percent of the above violent. Some 30 are able to assist the duties of the institution. They have one of the finest gardens in the territory. They have an abundant supply of vegetables and small fruit. This year's harvest was over 40 bushels of straw berries and 25 of rasp and black berries. The institution is 1-1/2 miles from the former county seat Steilacoom, and 12 miles from the present county seat, New Tacoma. It borders on the Steilacoom Prairies and is delightfully situated. Mount Rainier lifts its lofty peak, snow capped, in the distance; the bright sun is almost dazzling as it pours its rays on the plain, compared with the timbered country. The arrangement of the old Fort is tasty, and the order in which business is done here i ...
Puget Sound is a national treasure but it is suffering from toxic pollution. This short film features the work of Puget Soundkeeper Alliance, with appearances…
Power just went out. Based on the thump I heard and flash of light I saw, I'm going to guess a tree went down or a transformer blew up very close to the house.
Off to The Sound this weekend. Two more sleeps.
Why Spay and Neuter Your Companion Animals It's a lifesaver It's no myth, there is an overpopulation of unwanted pets nationwide and in our state. Every year more than 150,000 dogs and cats end up homeless in Washington State shelters, and sadly there are just not enough people who adopt from those shelters. Some animals in shelters are saved from the streets and cruelty, while some are given up by their families. Countless others never make it to shelters and suffer without someone to care for them. Spaying or neutering pets prevents animals from being born accidentally, and is the most effective and humane way to save animals lives. Benefits for you and your pet Your companion will live a longer, healthier life and you will experience fewer headaches if you get him or her spayed or neutered. Spaying and neutering reduces or eliminates: •The odds of breast cancer and dangerous uterine infections in females and prostate problems and testicular cancer in males. •Frustration in resisting the natural urg ...

ARTIST OPPORTUNITY: Sound Transit’s STart program is establishing a national roster of pre-qualified artists for public art projects throughout the agency’s three-county service area in the greater Puget Sound region of Washington State. The roster will be effective for a period of three years and serve as one of the means of selecting artists to create permanent, site-specific artwork for the agency’s expanding transit system. Art projects will vary in size and complexity, with budgets of approximately $30,000 to $600,000.

Do any of you know much about living in southern Washington state? We'd like to move back west, in driving distance of family in far northern California and western Idaho. We lived in the Puget Sound area for a while, but know nothing about the southern part of the state. (Oregon is out, we dislike the politics there.)
A new prophetic warning was sent into Steve Quayle's website on Feb 21st warning of a mega quake on the West Coast this spring. For those not familar with Joe Brandt I am posting his quake and tsunami visions as well. February 21st 2013 The Lord Jesus Christ of Nazareth Who came in the flesh has commended me to do it, and so I am His servant in passing on this message. May the Holy Spirit anoint my words and direct me in wording this out that it is clear and reachable and will penetrate your hearts of those who will listen and take a warning. I have a warning to get ready and prepare for a big disaster that will take place here in our area of Puget Sound. (Of course major disaster will take place in California, but we will be greatly effected by it as well). At this moment, I live in the city of Fife, WA, which is located 6 feet above the water level of Puget Sound.

"Chief Seattle of the Indians who inhabited the Seattle (Puget Sound) area, wrote a wonderful paper that has to do with putting one's self in tune with the Universe. He said 'Why should I lament the disappearance of my people? All things end, and the white man will find this out, also.' And this goes for the Universe. One can be 'at peace' with that. This does not mean that one should not participate in efforts to correct the situation, but underlying the effort to change must be an 'at peace.' To win a dogsled race is great. To lose is okay, too" (Campbell; Osbon; 1991; pp. 98-99). "The president in Washington sends word that he wishes to buy our land. But how can you buy or sell the sky? ... the land? The idea is strange to us. If we do not own the freshness of the air and the sparkle of the water, how can you buy them?" "Every part of this Earth is sacred to my people.

A group of local rappers is combining their Mexican heritage and Northwest attitude into a unique hip-hop style. Golden Brown Entertainment consists of Lil Dreams, Cricket, Chuy Chucks and Neno Brownz. Cricket and Neno Brownz started the group three years ago. They met while attending Lincoln High School, where they admired each other’s freestyle work. Cricket began writing at 16, recording over karaoke tapes. Cricket met Lil Dreams in March 2009. They liked the music each other were working on and they began writing songs together. Lil Dreams began writing at 13 and was free styling by high school. Chuy Chucks joined about a month ago. When Cricket was kicked out of Tacoma Public Schools, he met Chuy Chucks at Walker, an alternative school in Puyallup School District. Chuy Chucks began rapping at parties at 14. Their group name reflects their Hispanic heritage. Neno Brownz said he thinks they are the first group of Mexican rappers in the Puget Sound area. “A lot of Latinos that have hit our shows com ...

via Universe & Milky Way Lovers CASTING AN UPWARD SHADOW Photograph by PCloadletter26 on Reddit In this beautiful sunrise we see the shadow of Mt. Rainier being cast upward to the sky and clouds above. The photograph was taken by Redditor PCloadletter26 who says it was the last sunrise of 2012. The view is from Tacoma, Washington USA. During Autumn and Winter, the sun rises farther to the south around winter solstice and Mt Rainier can block the first rays of the morning, casting the brilliant shadow you see above. Mount Rainier is a stratovolcano located 54 miles (87 km) southeast of Seattle. It is the most topographically prominent mountain in the contiguous United States with a summit elevation of 14,411 ft (4,392 m). Tacoma is on Washington’s Puget Sound, 32 miles (51 km) southwest of Seattle. The population was 198,397, according to the 2010 census. Tacoma adopted its name after the nearby Mount Rainier, originally called Mount Tahoma. It is known as the “City of Destiny” because the area was c ...
By Terry Mosher Editor, Sports Paper Part III The best guard from that 1954-55 Bremerton basketball team was Roy Critser, who was the cousin of Bill Demick, who was quite a basketball player himself. Demick went on to play basketball his freshman year at Puget Sound where Critser says he may have made honorable mention all-conference. It would be the last year for Demick, who left school and got married. Then about 25 years later he was killed in a construction accident in Seattle. “Bill was a heck of an athlete,” says Critser. “He got married and quit school and went into the service. He never played any college basketball after that.” Bremerton teammates Bob Campbell and Don Jacobs followed Critser to Olympic College where they played for coach Phil Pesco. Campbell played just one year, got married, went to work, and later went back to school and got his education. Jacobs and Critser both played two years at OC and then moved on to four-year schools to continue their basketball c ...
I was living on Puget Sound in a shore cottage; working a restaurant in the town of Olympia. One late night I came home from work and saw this cloud lady stretching over the city. I thought of many things at the sight of her. Mostly I thought of the ancient Egyptian Goddess Nut who arches over the sky, her head touching west, toes touching east. She signed herself in the sky that night, arcing over water, the bare curvature of her body closely familiar. She was bending from her belly that felt as near as any lady's earthside center of gravity. She was somehow there and vaulting over the downstream South Sound city. She was just where any man had to certainly know he was seeing her. And she must have been holding herself how she could keep the dark sky's overcast from falling further, the blue gray overcoat from closing on her. Such a proud girl. And it was just a way she had for lighting layers, associative pictures, the painted nudes, myth mixed crudes, and tales of lucky lovers each hanging to corners o ...

PART 4 - Olympia History Excerpt from "Free Boy: A True Story of Slave and Master" by Lorraine McConaghy and Judy Bentley CHAPTER 5 STOWAWAY In the early morning, Monday, Sept. 24, 1860, the steamship Eliza Anderson hugged the long dock that stretched into the bay in Olympia. The crew was busy getting steam up in the boiler and loading mail and cargo for the run north to Steilacoom, Seattle, Port Townsend, Bellingham Bay and Victoria. James Allen, the ship's cook, was down in the galley getting breakfast ready for the passengers, expected to board within an hour. Allen worked fast, mechanically, listening intently for any sound of Charlie Mitchell. Every chance he got, he climbed up the companionway and glanced uphill into the chilly fog. Allen was a black man whose home was Victoria, and he had a good job as the steamship's steward, but he was also a conductor on the tiny Puget Sound underground railroad. He had never in his life done anything like this. He was a man of conviction, risking his own freedo ...

Seven Perished With the Ericksen A Propeller Burned to the Water's Edge on Puget Sound. SEATTLE, (Washington Territory) Dec. 28 (1888): The steamer Leif Ericksen was burned to the water’s edge at 5 o'clock yesterday evening off Alkali Point, five miles west of this city. Six lives were lost perhaps seven. The Ericksen was a propeller, 24 tons burden, and plied between Seattle and Sidney, Mason county, and was en route to Sidney when the accident occurred. The fire broke out in the pilothouse. It is believed to have been caused by the explosion of a lamp. Another theory is that a demijohn in the pilothouse was broken and the whiskey ran through to the boilers and ignited. The Ericksen was about two miles from shore, and there wore thirty-three persons aboard. The fire spread instantly throughout the interior cabin. Capt John Niube, the owner of the boat was in command. He left the wheelhouse for the purpose of launching the life raft but found passengers trying to put the raft overboard. In the ...

Robert Stroud ‘The Birdman of Alcatraz’ committed his first murder in Alaska at the age of nineteen, killing a bartender who would not pay $10 for Kitty O’Brien, one of Stroud’s prostitutes. He was sentenced to twelve years for manslaughter, time he divided between the federal penitentiary on McNeil Island in Puget Sound in the Pacific Northwest and Leavenworth Prison in Kansas. He had a reputation for being quiet and aloof, and other prisoners found him repulsive. Stroud had almost served his time when he killed again on March 26, 1916. His victim was Andrew F. Turner, a guard he attacked with a knife in the Leavenworth mess hall. Stroud told another convict, “The guard took a sick and died all of a sudden. He died of heart trouble. I guess you would call it a puncture of the heart. Anyhow, there was a knife hole in the guard’s heart. I never have given any reason for doing it, so they won’t have much to work on; only that I killed him, and that won’t do much good. I admit that much.” T ...

Walkabout No. 61 Discovery Park, Seattle, WA. What an amazing day we had for our 1st walkabout of 2013. Today we wandered around Discovery Park (Seattle's largest park) for about 2 hours and Wow, what a beautiful place. We visited the West Point Lighthouse which was built in 1881. Although the lighthouse is now owned by the City of Seattle however the US Coast Guard still operates the light & radar system and NOAA operates a weather station on the lighthouse property. We walked through the woods, past some wetlands, along the beach and enjoyed some fantastic views of the Puget Sound along the way. All this was followed by a yummy lunch and some great conversation. Outstanding day! Highlights: Parallel Parking, Coconut, Pileated Woodpecker, Misguided Sign Posts & extension cord.
There's frequently a lot more symbolism in the images I post here than I feel most people recognize. But every now and then, some people do notice... One fun thing about this project is that it has connected me to a large number of historians of the Puget Sound area who have taken an interest in my work, and in more closely examining Kent. One recently wrote with this observation, and I encourage people to offer their thoughts. "Your pictures tend to show the train speeding *through* Kent. No real reason to stop there, you know? Live, raise the kids, sure, but not for somebody from out of town to stop. History doesn't help here. Fifty years ago, Kent had about 10,000 people. It was a farm town ringed by anti-aircraft batteries and stump farms. There is no historic downtown to create; people always went to Seattle if they were going shopping or to the doctor's. And probably WSC (not yet WSU) for college, because it really was an agricultural college. Today, of course Kent touts itself as the sixth larg ...

What do a Scout group, a neighborhood church and your family all have in common? They need to be prepared for any emergency. Safe in the Sound is an initiative to help our community achieve this. The goal is to better prepare the greater Puget Sound area over the next few years.
THE BOUQUET Smells have been in my nose all along the road. I left the tangy autumn cottonwood leaves of New Mexico I felt the bouquet of aspen and pine in the cleft valley of Telluride in the dust of the desert salt flats and rabbit brushed Utah the spice of high sage northern Nevada into the sweetened mixture of ponderosa and juniper of eastern Oregon down into the first valley of wet musk Willamette over the mighty Columbia up the northern fjords of Douglas fir and cold sea salt Puget Sound to turn around drift back to the misted south farmlands and timber milled western Oregon a sharp turn at Grants Pass to pungent mud flats in Humboldt County then bombarded with the wet waft of the City on the Frisco hill Jumping the agriculture chemical perfume belt artichoke capitol country bumped over a crest to the coast of Highway One and the warm Pacific Ocean odor of Southern California knowing the BIG SMELL was coming I rested my nose at San Luis Obispo savoring the sacred moment to come when I could grasp th ...
At the Rainbow's End by Jack London It was for two reasons that Montana Kid discarded his "chaps" and Mexican spurs, and shook the dust of the Idaho ranges from his feet. In the first place, the encroachments of a steady, sober, and sternly moral civilization had destroyed the primeval status of the western cattle ranges, and refined society turned the cold eye of disfavor upon him and his ilk. In the second place, in one of its cyclopean moments the race had arisen and shoved back its frontier several thousand miles. Thus, with unconscious foresight, did mature society make room for its adolescent members. True, the new territory was mostly barren; but its several hundred thousand square miles of frigidity at least gave breathing space to those who else would have suffocated at home. Montana Kid was such a one. Heading for the sea-coast, with a haste several sheriff's posses might possibly have explained, and with more nerve than coin of the realm, he succeeded in shipping from a Puget Sound port, and ma ...

IslandWood is a nationally recognized outdoor education center located on Bainbridge Island, WA across Puget Sound from Seattle’s urban center. IslandWood’s mission is to provide exceptional learning experiences and to inspire lifelong environmental and community stewardship.
I love My City. Seattle is an interesting town, geographically speaking, all elongated and bisected by lakes and a major waterway and dotted with seven Hills (almost alike Rome!). However, Greater Seattle is on a north/south axis, narrow at the waist (downtown) and wider at the extremities. Yet this Wasp like shape is exacerbated by a large lake (Washington) to the East, and Puget Sound to the West (with soaring mountain ranges dominating both the Eastern and Western sight-lines). The Downtown urban core in particular is very compact for a metro area of a million+ strong, as it is only 12 blocks in width and roughly 40 blocks long; built on a hillside which is butted up against the waterline. Here is my gushing and long winded point: On a working day this is an intensely busy city with a 100k or more people jammed into a few square miles! Dynamic to say the least, frantic to say the most. Yet on the weekends, like today, there is a very cool vibe downtown, the shopping is active, the restaurants are many ...
This adventure tale follows the fate of three teens: Jake, Auki and Collen. These young people are harried by one dramatic escape after another as they pursue an ill-advised homemade raft trip out into the perilous, fog-borne shipping straits of Puget Sound. Little did they know that their innoce...
Shamu was the first orca to survive more than 13 months in captivity and was the star of a very popular killer whale show at SeaWorld San Diego in the mid - late 1960s. She was the fourth killer whale (orca) ever captured (the second female) and was the third orca ever displayed in a public exhibit. After her death in 1971, the name Shamu continued to be used in SeaWorld "Shamu" orca shows for different killer whales in different SeaWorld parks.Shamu represents the first successful intentional live-capture of a healthy orca. Three previous orca captures (including Moby Doll and Namu) had been more opportunistic The way Shamu got her name was from Namu, She+Namu=Shamu. The very young (14 foot / 4.25m, 2000 lb / 900 kg) Southern Resident orca was captured by Ted Griffin in Puget Sound in October 1965 to be a companion for the orca Namu at Griffin's Seattle public aquarium. But the new orca was soon leased to and then purchased by SeaWorld in San Diego in December 1965 She was retired fr ...

What is Occupy Skagit? • A gathering on the Skagit River, April 6th in support of restoring the C&R season. The activity will involve 'fishing' without hooks in as many visible places as possible on the Skagit and Sauk; from the bridge at Concrete upstream to Bacon Creek on the Skagit, and upstream on the Sauk to the bridge at Darrington. • This is a 'Wade In' Our purpose is not to disrupt traffic, be violent, disrespectful, trespass, harass, or engage in illegal activity of any kind...you know, just like when you go fishing. • This is a parallel action to mesh with attendance at the WDFW Comissioners Meeting the following week in Olympia. Why Occupy Skagit? • At the time of the ESA listing of Puget Sound wild steelhead, it was generally acknowledged by NMFS that the most robust large basin population in the region was in the Skagit; in fact on its own it probably would not have been listed. After reviewing the evidence, it is our belief that a well managed, catch-and-release (C&R) season on the S ...

Rocky Mountain High in Colorado...I thought Puget Sound / Seattle drivers really freak out during snow. These people out here are probably worse. :) Funny I'm walking arond with no coat and some people are dressed as if they're on the Iditarod.
I really should talk about the con ... We got into the hotel around noon. Soundcheck was at 5 so we had some time to relax, we even got a nap in. Sunnie came to the room and we ran bits of songs just to make sure we knew what we were doing. The rehearsal was superb and I had no doubts that the show would be as well. Just before soundcheck Shawna asked us when we were going to head out, someone wanted to see us. I asked who ... she said "someone". I knew immediatedly who it was. Katy MacDonald had listed herself as a maybe, but had not said that they were or were not coming. We didn't get as much time hanging out with them as I would have liked, but we still got a lot. I suppose we have to go to a con on their side of the pond next. I must rant for a brief moment ... I have a few favorite sound crews that I have worked with in fandom. Conflikt has one of the best. Cool toys too, you can run everything remotely from a tablet. Go on, start drooling gundo! Soundcheck was actually fun! The show was great, Sunn ...

To God: to illuminate all men. Beginning with Skid Road. Let Occidental and Washington be transformed into a higher place, the plaza of eternity. Illuminate the welders in shipyards with the brilliance of their torches. Let the crane operator lift up his arm for joy. Let elevators creak and speak, ascending and descending in awe. Let the mercy of the flower’s direction beckon in the eye. Let the straight flower bespeak its purpose in straightness — to seek the light. Let the crooked flower bespeak its purpose in crookedness — to seek the light. Let the crookedness and straightness bespeak the light. Let Puget Sound be a blast of light. I feed on your Name like a cockroach on a crumb — this cockroach is holy. (Psalm III - by Allen Ginsberg)
