Update: June 27, 2011: Jury Convicts Rod Blagojevich on 17 of 20 Counts.

(Note: Rod Blagojevich 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. Governor Blagojevich’s removal from office occurred one month to the day after the seven photos in this series were taken of his Springfield office.)

Visitors having business with the Governor are escorted from the reception room (behind the glass in the previous photo) to Governor Blagojevich’s Statehouse office, located on the second floor along the north side of the east wing. After passing the Governor’s two secretary’s whose desks are positioned outside the entrance to his office, you walk through a doorway into the Governor’s office and see this view.

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.

Anyone can build their muscle mass. Even the largest bodybuilders had to start somewhere, and the things that worked for them will also work for you. You simply need to have good information and proper technique. The following techniques for building muscle are sure to help you.

If you are looking to build muscle mass and are an adult, then you may want to consider taking a creatine supplement. This supplement has the ability to increase your energy and assist your body in building more muscle mass. This supplement has been use by weight trainers for quite some time. So do your best to stay away from supplements, if you feel like your body is still in the process of growing.

Change up your exercise routine from time to time. Stay away from making your exercise order a boring habit! If you always leave one group of muscles until last, they will always be tired when you finally get to them. Starting a workout with different muscle groups, you can get the best results.

A good muscle building program should prioritize strength above all else. Over time, you will be able to take on weights that are heavier. When you first embrace weight training, you should expect your lifting capacity to increase by roughly five percent after two workout sessions. Analyze your progress regularly and if you aren’t seeing the results you are looking for, consider making changes to your workout. If you’re feeling weak, consider how long you rested between workouts.

Use caution when taking creating supplements for long periods of time. Make sure not to use these types of supplements at all if you have any type of kidney problem. There are other side effects from creatine, including heart arrhythmias and muscle disorders like cramping. Adolescents using this supplement are at the highest risk. More is not better, do not exceed the recommended safe dosages.

You need to consume carbohydrates, if you hope to build your muscles. Carbohydrates give your body the fuel it needs to perform any exercises you want to do. As a general rule, if you work out regularly, then you should consume a couple grams of carbohydrates for every pound of your weight.

Aim to do bicep curls more effectively. During a typical biceps curl, you don’t receive the most benefit from the upper part of the curl because you failed in moving the bar or the dumbbell past the parallel point. The upper half of the bicep curl is the most powerful part. The solution is to do your barbell bicep curls while seated.

Don’t fall for the false benefits of steroids. Using steroids can make it harder for your body to maintain the proper hormone levels. There is also evidence that steroids do damage to the liver, reduce the amounts of good cholesterol, and can cause the development of breast tissue in men. Steroids also cause “roid rage” and are a cause for acne. So there really isn’t much that is good about them after all, right?

Take your body into consideration before you begin building muscle. Be realistic in what you can or cannot expect from it initially. This can help you create realistic goals for your routine. What are your composition and body weights?

Set goals for weight lifting. Increase your weights by 5% every other time you work out to better your records. Set goals for a certain number of reps to do with a certain weight. It will be like competing with yourself and make it more interesting and fun for you while you work out through the week.

If you set your sites on it, you can build lots of muscle. Follow the tips outlined in this article to make it easier. With correct and effective information, accompanied with solid techniques, you could achieve success in muscle building.
