ILGISA Fall Conference

I attended a conference on Monday and Tuesday.
It was held at the new confrence hotel in Lisle.
Ryan and Rich had an opportunity to learn a variety of GIS applications and meet potential employers.
I presented "Working with ArcGIS Viewer for Flex Part 2" and attended couple meetings as a board member.
I was elected for a treasurer for the second term.

We decided to have early dinner at Ponderosa on Friday.
Lunch buffet was only $5.99 with a coupon.
Additionally, dinner menu including shrimp cocktail came soon after we started eating.
Food and service were decent, but we may want to keep a secret what time we arrived at the restaurant.

Rumble Tumble ended

Sola finished his second term of Rumble Tumble at YMCA today.
Since the program remains same, we decided not to register the next term.
Instead, we plan to take him to Veteran's Park more often.

Too late

I saw ads for Hibachi Grill Buffet on the newspaper.
The restaurant lowered a price (lunch $6.99, dinner $9.99) and offered 20% off coupon.
However, we have no intention to go there.
They should have improved their food quality right after the reopening.

It is located near Walmart.

Hy-Vee Fuel Saver is misleading

This program makes people to believe they saved lots of money.
However, it is not true.
Hyvee tends to apply this discount for selected items which are more expensive than other stores.
For example, 2 lb of Creamette pasta was sold for $2 while $1.39 at Country Market.
2 cents per gallon discount would not save money for those who purchased 10 gallons of gas.
Despite of food freshness, I disagree their marketing strategy.

Asian Buffet

This restaurant was remodeled last month and renamed to Hibachi Grill Buffet.
We saw positive reviews on the website and had lunch there today.
Although it added hibachi grill, food quality was slightly improved.
We may still go to Galesburg for better Chinese meals.
I would rate this restaurant C+.

2.7 miles (4.3 km), 30 minutes

This is a distance and time I usually spend on the treadmill.
It is important for me not to rest for the period.
If I feel better, I would increase speed up to 6.5 to 7.0 mph (10.5 to 11.3km/h) in the end.

Recovered from jet lag

We had a wonderful trip to Japan and recovered from jet lag.
Sola was able to celebrate his 2nd birthday in the resort hotel by the ocean.
Abby and I enjoyed more sightseeings around Tokyo this time.
Even though Sola slept only couple hours, we liked the direct flight from Chicago to Tokyo by ANA.
