If it were a sandwich, it would be a meaty, stick-to-your-ribs security filling between two slices of hearty six-and-half-hours-in-a-car-with-my-publisher

It's the last weekend of August. It was 52 degrees on the shores of Sebago Lake (where I live in Raymond, Maine) when I got up this morning at 6:30. For the first time since they bloomed earlier this season, my morning glories hadn't yet opened. That means it's getting colder. That means summer (such as it was) is pretty much over. That also means it's time for me to pack my bags and head off to Verona, N.Y. for Rapid Response's Users Group. SSN's publisher Tim Purpura and I will hit the road together and partake of the Users Group, which Rapid promises "to be a 'don't miss' event for Rapid Response Dealers, with workshops, seminars, feedback forums, and top companies from all areas of the Security Industry." I look forward to meeting industry folks in attendance and touring the RR facility. I'm also looking forward to hopefully touring Rapid's EMT-staffed Life Safety Monitoring facility, which handles PERS monitoring for Medical Alarm Concepts. There is even going to be a talk by special keynote speaker, Space Shuttle pilot Colonel Richard Searfoss, which I'm looking forward to (I'm a science/space/sci-fi geek), and, though I don't golf, myself, there's even a golf tournament to cap things off. Overall, it promises to be a productive few days sandwiched between lots of windshield time, during which I'm sure Tim and I will argue over whose iPod takes precedence...
