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.)

This conference table sits in the back of Governor Blagojevich’s office. Some of our past Governor’s have placed their desks in this same area. The door on the right leads directly to a larger conference room and the Governor’s Press Office.

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.

What is something that you do not like about yourself? Do you think about it when you take a shower and look at yourself? You need to reinvent yourself, and the best way to start doing that is by improving your body. Continue reading the following paragraphs to learn methods you can apply towards bigger muscles.

Keep an eye on your calorie consumption when trying to build good muscle. Caloric intake can be both good and bad, meaning you should be mindful of what dietary elements are successful or detrimental towards muscle growth. Making poor dietary choices may lead to fat gain, instead of muscle growth.

Do not rely on supplements. However, they can be a good addition to an exercise routine aimed at building muscle. A healthy diet is the best way to give your body the vitamins and minerals it needs, instead of solely relying on these supplements. As the name suggests, they are meant to supplement a healthy diet. Use supplements only when they are absolutely necessary.

Meat is a protein-rich food that will help aid muscle growth. You’ll need to ingest at least a gram of protein for each pound of body weight. This helps you to store greater amounts of protein and the greater amount of protein in your system the better your muscles can grow.

It is important to remember that certain groups of muscles are more difficult to build than others. Fill sets are wise in order to focus on the slower muscles. This is an abbreviated set (only 25-30 reps) of an exercise to work the deficient muscle group. This set is performed once two to three days have passed since the group was previously exercised.

Remember to eat well when building muscle. Tips on pretty much any health topic will mention staying hydrated, and bodybuilding is no different. Muscles contain a lot of water, after all. Make sure that you are not drinking too much alcohol as well, because this will start to break down your muscles tissues at a fast rate.

Vary your workout routine from week to week. Like anything else, if your routine becomes boring, you will be less likely to make time for it. Use different exercises every couple workouts to ensure that you are targeting all of your muscle groups. By doing this, you will stay motivated and exercise at optimal levels.

You need to consume carbohydrates, if you hope to build your muscles. Carbs give your body the fuel it needs to do the exercise you have to do every day. If your training is extensive, you may need to increase your daily consumption of carbs to 2-3 grams for every pound you weigh.

You should think about creating supplements if you are having a hard time building muscles. Creatine will give you more energy and help you build more mass. It has been a leading supplement in weight training for many years. If you are a high school student and your body has not finished growing, avoid supplements.

Take photographs of your naked body every couple of days. When looking at your appearance in a mirror daily, it may be difficult to view progress. Photographs will underscore changes more fully, giving you an idea of how your body is progressing.

Once you apply the knowledge presented here for a body you are happier with, your question will then become “What do you appreciate about yourself?” Building muscle and getting fit will not only make you look better, you will feel better, too, and actually be healthier. Altogether, these effects can make a big difference in your self-esteem. If you want to positively alter your life, the time to start is now.
