Adding a Google Map to a Drupal 7 page

Recently I needed to add a Google Map to a contact page, which led me to have a read of the new V3 API Google has released.  Previously you needed to get a key and mess around a bit - but now you simply add the Javascript to the page and you're good to go.  Unfortunately I couldn't just modify the <head> section of the page.tpl.php file as its now hidden away in /modules/system/html.tpl.php and included in each rendered page...

Drupal 7 Admin Menu has no drop-downs?

Drupal 7 has a nice built in admin menu, but it slows me down... its just not as good as what I have been using for a couple of years in Drupal 6, that is: admin_menu.  Specifically - I really miss the dropdowns.

I've pulled the built-in menu from one of my sites recently and replaced it with Admin Menu because it was just too annoying waiting for it... heres what I did in case anyone else wants the old-skool admin menu:

1. Disable 'Toolbar' in the Core Modules.  This gets rid of the built-in one.
