Digital Directions Via Satellite Out Loud For Commuters by Gardenia C. Hung

This morning I was commuting with a friend en route to the West Loop in Chicago by car, when I noticed that digital directions via satellite are provided by mobile cellular telephone—sometimes the phone itself voices digital directions out loud. Other times, new motor vehicles are equipped with digital satellite global positioning systems which give directions out loud to the driver. State-of-the-art digital computer devices and robotic global positioning systems can guide the user using human voice prompts to simulate guidance for the driver. Some people find comfort in listening to the voices of a digitized human female or male on the mobile cellular phones or motor vehicles nowadays. I wonder why my driver friend did not use the human voice prompts for digital directions from her mobile cellular phone?

By comparison, twenty (20) years ago, the best way to get around town was to buy a Rand McNally Six County Map Atlas for the Chicagoland area, in order to get out and about across towns in Illinois. In fact, the Rand McNally Six County Map Atlas is usually updated over the years, while the Illinois highways and roads are added, improved, and constructed for commuters here, out-of-state, and around the world. On a regular basis, the State of Illinois prints new maps for drivers and commuters to guide them around and across towns in the Land of Lincoln.

“I wonder, Where all my vintage Rand McNally Six County Map Atlases and collectible AAA Motor Club Maps are now? While I was a AAA Motor Club member and a Shell Oil Motor Club driver, I used to request driving map routes to travel out-of-state for scenic routes, when I was driving the Nissan 200SX Sports car which Nathan Scott Wittler and I purchased at the Midtown Nissan dealer on Irving Road, near Six Corners in Chicago. Nowadays, a digital mobile cellular device will provide all route directions via satellite upon request, even at loud with digital human voice prompts. Amazing how digital satellite global positioning systems have changed how drivers and users commute here, there, and everywhere.

Another convenience for drivers is the Traffic Nearby App on the mobile cellular phone to advise commuter of the rush hour traffic jams ahead of time, before the driver is in the midst of the speeding cars along Lake Shore Drive, for instance, or on Congress Parkway, or on the Eisenhower Expressway during the morning commute.

Digital Location via Satellite Global Positioning Systems is a sign of the times in the 21st century and the future of our next generation using mobile devices and robotic voice prompts simulating human guidance upon request. Zeitgeist!

My Classical Guitar is a beautiful Spanish instrument which I learned to love early as a young woman in a Catholic school on the northwest side of Chicago. My Father was kind and thoughtful to enroll me in private Guitar lessons by a young Catholic woman who lived near Madonna High School–since the secondary school my Mother had chosen for me did not teach Guitar nor did it offer a Guitar Music Program, just the Guitar Club moderated by the Franciscan sister Diane Marie. I began to play guitar with the Guitar Club during Catholic Mass and high school programs at Madonna High School.

My Father was diligent and mindful to drive me to private guitar lessons by a young Catholic woman who lived near my high school. He paid for my guitar lessons and bought me a very good Classical Spanish guitar for me to continue studying and practicing Spanish guitar music during my college years in the Music Department at Northeastern Illinois University where I studied and practiced Voice and learned to dance during my performing arts program there.

Thanks to my Father, I learned to love and enjoy good Classical guitar music, opera, and classical dance.

I hope that I can still use and play my Classical Spanish Guitar now, while my Mother has been keeping it for me, in the Edgewater community where she lives today by Lake Michigan, in Chicago, Illinois USA.

Early this Friday morning, 16 June 2017, I woke up with my left eye red, irritated, and itchy from allergy caused after I ate the rest of the Egg Salad Sandwich I had purchased at

On Thursday evening, 15 June 2017 at 10:03PM, I, Gardenia Hung paid for an Egg Salad Sandwich 04902251925, $4.49 at the Walgreens Pharmacy #15197, 6121 North Broadway St., Chicago, IL 60660, Tel. 773-764-8961. Now, my left eye is red, congested, itchy, and hard to open from the allergy effects caused by the Egg Salad Sandwich from Walgreens Foods.

Since I did not have any Lunch on Thursday, June 16, 2017, I was hungry after 10PM, so I walked to Walgreens on Broadway to buy an Egg Salad Sandwich which had an expiration date for 6/19/2017. I did not know that the Egg Salad Sandwich was going to make me sick, suddenly, due to a Food Allergy reaction. My left eye is red, itchy, and still congested suddenly after eating the rest of the Egg Salad Sandwich around 4AM, this morning.

Now, I am still suffering from a nasal congestion and left eye discomfort due to the Egg Salad Sandwich from Walgreens.

Spring rain storms and flooding viaducts have brought swarming mosquitoes along the lakefront beaches and parks by Lake Michigan. Walking outdoors can be hazardous when mosquitoes hover around you and target defenseless joggers, hikers, and strollers along the lakefront trails.

Do not be surprised when a host of mosquitoes envelop you while walking by Lake Michigan. Unsuspecting pedestrians can be easy prey for mosquitoes and other blood-sucking insects along the park district walking paths this summer.

Be prepared to use and spray insect repellent before walking outdoors or even indoors for protection against swarming mosquitoes and other insects.

Mosquitoes are vectors ready to find humans and animals to bite and spread diseases caused by viruses. Beware of mosquito bites on your skin. Apply skin lotion immediately to prevent a rash or irritation upon scratching for relief after a mosquito or another insect stings you.

Indoor mosquitoes flying inside the premises and facilities are a nuisance and a threat to a good, healthy environment.

Fumigation and extermination by mosquito repellent is a requirement to prevent the spread of disease by mosquito infestation.

More aggressive mosquito abatement measures must be enforced by the City of Chicago to prevent the spread of the mosquito population along the lakefront and in the Edgewater community by Lake Michigan in Illinois, USA.

Facebook’s annual stockholders meeting will be held on Thursday, June 1st, 2017, in Redwood City, California.

The company will ask attendees to vote on a series of measures, including re-electing the company’s board of directors. Mark Zuckerberg, CEO, maintains majority control of his company.
