Jacksonville, IL

We drove to STL last week and noticed Jacksonville seems to provide the cheapest gas ($2.47 per gallon).
STL is no longer cheaper than Illinois.
I do not know the reason but guess the city would have been taking an advantage of residents during the holidays.

Google +

I finally migrated to Google + from Picasa Web Album.
Picasa Web Album had some issues loading videos (Adobe Flash Player is required).
Google + seems to run fine on mobile devices.
I think Picasa would be phased out gradually.

ILGISA Regional Meeting

The GIS Center is hosting a ILGISA regional meeting on Thursday, May 14.
It is the first time for ILGISA to come to Western Illinois University.
The meeting is rather social networking than technical presentations.
Chad and I are excited to meet GIS users in the western Illinois region.
Detail information is listed at our website.

Short Visit to Japan Part 3

One of the main reasons for this trip was visiting Grandma's cemetery.
It has been 3 years since she passed away.
Grandma gave me lots of wonderful memories, and I miss her a lot.


He finished working at the GIS Center after his Master's degree.
He and his wife went back to South Korea for a while.
We hope to see them again.
