Governor Rod Blagojevich’s tenure as Governor ended one month to the day after this photo was taken. The disgraced former Governor was impeached by the Illinois House of Representatives on January 9, 2009, and was subsequently removed from office on January 29, 2009, by a unanimous 59–0 vote in the Illinois State Senate.

Clockwise from top: Governor Rod Blagojevich, Secretary of State Jessie White; State Treasurer Alexi Giannoulias; Attorney General Lisa Madigan; State Comptroller Daniel Hynes; and Lt. Governor Pat Quinn. Quinn became Governor after Blagojevich’s removal, and subsequently won a full term as governor in 2010.

You are invited to stay and browse through my stream. Here’s a quick index to my little corner of Flickr:

Automobile Photographs
: This is a very large collection of images whose primary, but not exclusive, focus is on American automotive classics. Images are organized by decade, by manufacturer, and by topics (such as convertibles, station wagons, muscle cars, etc.)

Central Illinois (except Springfield)
: Central Illinois (except Springfield): Photos relating to the middle section of the "Land of Lincoln" (except for the Capital City of Springfield) may be found in this collection. Every city and town I’ve photographed is contained within its own set, and rural (as in "countryside") photographs are grouped by county.

Springfield, Illinois
: All of my photographs of Springfield and the Abraham Lincoln Sites are in this collection. For the City of Springfield, there are separate sets for the Capitol Complex, Downtown (including the Old State Capitol), Neighborhoods, Parks, Illinois State Fairgrounds and more. Photographs of Lincoln sites include the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum, Lincoln Home National Historic Site, Lincoln Tomb, and so on. Also in the Lincoln "All About Abe" (Set) are a few Lincoln sites not located in Springfield.

The Illinois State Fair
: My collection of photographs of the Illinois State Fair. The fair offers something for everyone. Grab a corn dog and lemon shake-up, and come take a look!

Beyond Central Illinois
: Other locales in the United States and Canada including New York, Chicago, San Francisco and Seattle.

In addition to my location-based sets, here are links to some "topical" collections and sets I’ve put together:

Barbers & Barber Shops
: Traditional barbers and barber shops are on the endangered species list. But there are still plenty to be found if you go looking for them.

Almost Everything Else. Check It Out!!!
: Included topics range from man’s first walk on the moon to small town schools and churches, and from Soft-Coated Wheaten Terriers (our favorite breed) to things that are abandoned, neglected, weathered, or rusty.

Doing something to improve your life takes dedication, time and information. Muscle building is no different. In order to be a success, you have to have the proper tools. Here, you will find some good ways to build that muscle, and you can start right now!

Set realistic short-term goals. You may desire to do things, like squat a few hundred pounds within the first month of training, but this might not be possible for you, and you want to avoid injuring yourself. After you determine your baseline strength, attempt to improve each time you perform your workout routine. In many cases, you will find yourself stronger each day, surpassing your short-term goals. Anytime you meet or beat your goals, you will feel even more motivated, and the results will carry forward.

After targeting a group of muscles, cool down that area with similarly targeted stretches. This will help you decrease your recovery time. These stretches should be a bit uncomfortable while doing them, but they are going to make a huge difference in the development of the muscle tissue.

Cool down with a short stretching routine to ensure that your muscles start the repair process from a healthy point. If you are under 40, hold your stretches for a minimum of 30 seconds. Someone over forty should try to stretch for about 60 seconds. This will lessen the chances of your body getting injured while doing muscle building exercises.

Make sure your form is perfect before trying to get more power. Work on your form first. Training yourself to use good form will help you as you add more weight. This means your chance for injury will be increased, which is opposite of your desired results.

Consume lots of protein when you wish to build muscle. Protein is what builds strong muscles and what they are made from. When you don’t consume enough, your body will have a difficult time increasing muscle mass. Aim to eat lean and healthy proteins at least three times a day.

Use a combination of free weight exercises and weight machines in your muscle building regimen. Free weights are a great way to build muscle rapidly. However, it is generally safer for beginners to use the weight machines. If you are a newbie bodybuilder, lift weights using both machines and free weights so you don’t make a habit of using only machines.

When your exercise routine incorporates muscle building, you should remove alcohol from your life. Even though one glass of wine once in awhile is okay, do not drink more than that. Alcohol slows muscle growth and is unhealthy overall.

Muscle building isn’t always an attempt to become overly bulky. There are a variety of bodybuilding routines designed to get different results. You need to determine what your goals are before settling on one. If you are aiming for bulk over strength, then you may need a supplement to help build mass.

Try having a routine that can adapt to your goals. Sticking with the same routine can help you make more rapid progress toward your goals. Once you have developed a core of regular exercises, you can add and rotate some others to keep from getting too bored.

Create the illusion that your body is larger than it really is. This is accomplished by focusing your attention on developing your upper chest, shoulders and upper back. This makes your upper body look bigger in proportion to your waist, which gives the illusion that you have a larger body.

The more you know about muscle building, the better the chances that you will achieve your goals. By implementing the advice from this article into your workout, you will be guaranteed to get the body you want.
