Post Advisor Conference Road Trip (with pictures) with Rocky, Gab, Tim, and some children

By Andrew Pollack on 07/24/2005 at 02:04 PM PDT

Sorry for being so quiet this last week -- I've been speaking at Advisor then running off on a road trip. Here are pictures from the trip. Rocky brought two of his kids, and I brought one of mine. Gab and Tim were along as well, but no pictures here of Gab as is her preference.

We left Vegas at 13:30 on Wednesday, and headed to the Hoover Dam. We did that tour, then crossed what I call "The Nothing" into Arizona and over to Flagstaff. "The Nothing" is the space from the Hoover Dam to Kingman, Arizona. We stopped for dinner on the way at the Route 66 "Roadkill Cafe" (You kill it, we grill it) then on to Flagstaff by around 22:00. After dropping Gab, Tim and Rocky and his girls at the hotel, Coryn and I went back up I-40 about 20 minutes to Parks where we stayed with my father.

Thursday morning, after cleaning out the van and reloading with Coke, Ice, and Fuel -- and taking pictures of Coryn on my stepmother's horse -- we picked up Rocky and Gab and all and headed for the Grand Canyon. We went up by way of I-40 and Williams then due North to the Canyon, then drove East along the rim and into the Lower Colorado River valley and the beginning of the "Painted Desert". Another hour or so south back into Flagstaff on AZ-89 for a late lunch, then down 89-A into Oak Creek Canyon where the girls swam and jumped off the cliffs into "Slide Rock". We stayed in Sedona that night.

Friday morning we got up and drove up 89-A into the old mine town of Jerome (now an artist community) and finally over Mingus Mountain into Prescott, Arizona for a farewell lunch at the historic "Palace" bar on whiskey row.

From there we parted ways, with each family going their own way (Rocky picked up a Rental car at the busy airport in Prescott).

We all had a great time!

so what was on the menu at the roadkill cafe?By Alan Bell on 07/25/2005 at 05:35 AM EDT
I don't think I have ever hit anything I would contemplate eating, a friend of
mine had an augument with a deer once, the deer lost but it was nearly a score
draw.

Thanks to the fantastic work by John Curtis and his team, the node.js integration with Domino is going to be getting a rich security model. What we know is that a user's authorizations will be respected through the node.js application to the Domino server -- including reader names, ACLs, Roles, and so on. The way ......
