#SQLVacation Finale in the Music City – Nashville, TN

 

All good things must come to an end and, after logging almost 1400 miles on the road, the #SQLVacation road trip returns to its home city – Nashville, TN, the “Music City”. Eight SQL Server users groups, eight matching blog posts, two hundred t-shirts, and many hundreds of… Read more

#SQLVacation Postcard from Evansville, Indiana

Our long #SQLVacation is nearly at an end because our stop in Evansville, IN is our last roadtrip location for the family and the penultimate (i.e., second to last) technical session of the journey. It’s a bittersweet, fersher.

#SQLVacation and the Gateway to the West

The Griswolds had an experience they’ll never forget in St. Louis. And we’ve had ours too, but in a very good way. We’d vacationed in St. Louis two years ago and had a great time. We’ve seen the sights, gotten the pictures, and have the t-Shirts. I still love to… Read more

Of the hundreds of cities that I’ve visited around the world, Chicago is one of my favorites. The food. The museums. The architecture. The scenery.

#SQLVacation Postcard from Downers Grove, IL

I’ve been to Chicagoland many times over the years. During the 1990’s, when I worked for Deloitte, I occasionally traveled to the practice office in downtown Chicago or to the tax practice in Deerfield. In the later 1990’s and early 2000’s (a.k.a. “the aughts”), I frequently traveled to the original… Read more

#SQLVacation Postcard from Indianapolis, IN

For some people, Indianapolis means one thing, and one thing only – the Indianapolis Motor Speedway (a.k.a “The Brickyard”)  and the Indianapolis 500. In my case, it means several times speaking at IndyPASS, the local SQL Server User Group, over the last 10 years. I first spoke at… Read more

#SQLVacation Postcard from Louisville, KY

 

Along the banks of the mighty Ohio River, in sight of the shores of Indiana, lies beautiful Louisville, KY. Louisville is a place with a strong connection for me. (No, not because I drink bourbon, although that’s a pretty good reason to like the place, come to… Read more
