Gas, oil, electric? Which new furnace to get in Seattle

I live in a 1911 Craftsman in Seattle. The heating situation is... pretty weird. (See the "more inside".) My 42-year-old oil furnace still works like a champ, but the oil company folks say they won't service it any more and it has to be replaced. I have been searching and searching to try to figure out the best way to deal with this before it gets cold out, but I am not finding what I need. Should I change my heating method and can people recommend whom I might call for this? [more inside]

Where Should We Go In Addition to Seattle?

I visit some friends in Seattle every year right around Halloween — sometime in the last week of October/first week-and-change of November. My travel buddy and I have in previous years traveled to other cities near Seattle as part of the vacation. We've been to Portland, Vancouver, and San Francisco. Where should we go this year?

Large decorative plants that will survive in a container on a Seattle deck

What plants are suitable for putting on our deck in Seattle? There's no yard/soil, so they must live in containers. The deck is quite large so I was thinking about large decorative plants like small trees or some form of bamboo. Climate-wise, we have the typical PNW weather of moist winters that only fall below freezing a few days out of the year. Also, we are completely ignorant of gardening and would rather have something that can survive with a minimum of attention.
