This is the main entrance to the suite of offices located in the east wing of the second floor of the State Capitol Building that are occupied by the Governor and members of his Springfield staff. The Governor also has offices on the 16th floor of the James R. Thompson Center in downtown Chicago. Rod Blagojevich was serving as Governor when this photo was taken days after Christmas in 2008.

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 your muscle building routine? The answer might not be as direct as you think. Lots of people are increasing muscles on their own although it is difficult. Read the muscle-building tips below for some new and innovative techniques.

Do not load up on weight during every exercise, because not every position is favorable for heavy lifting. For instance, split squats, dips and neck work will damage your joints if you add too much weight. Use the heavy weights for exercises like rows, presses, squats and deads.

Stay on top of your overall diet and your water consumption when trying to add muscle to your frame. Hydration is very important, as water comprises 70% of your total muscle mass. 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.

Provide your body with plenty of the right fuel on exercise days. It is always a good idea to increase calorie consumption approximately an hour before working out. Do not sabotage your efforts by binge-eating on your workout days. Instead, just increase your caloric intake more than your consumption on your off days.

In order to build muscles, remember that carbohydrates are very essential, as well. Carbohydrates serve as the energy source the body needs to complete workouts. It is recommended that, if you wish to train hard, that you should have three grams of carbohydrates for each pound that you weigh.

Compound exercises will help you develop your muscle mass. Compound exercises work more than one muscle group at once. A great example of a compound exercise is bench pressing. This exercise works your triceps, chest and shoulders all at the same time.

Remember the “big three,” and include these exercises in your routine. They include dead lifts, squats and bench presses. These exercises not only add muscles mass, but they improve your body’s overall strength and conditioning. Use these exercise as the cornerstone of your exercise regimen.

It may help to change up the grip you use for the back. To get more strength, use a mixed or staged grip when doing deadlifts and rack pulls. Staggered grips assist you in twisting the bar in one direction, while the underhand grip puts the bar in the opposite direction. This stops the bar from rolling all over your hands.

In order to put together a really effective muscle-building program, seek expert advice. Learning from the professionals can give you an edge on the competition, and it can help you develop the proper foundation that you need for success. While lifting, you can gain more motivation and confidence with this newly acquired knowledge.

You need to plan your workout carefully, to avoid overexertion, as well as under-exertion, of your muscles. If you don’t workout, you’ll have weak, small muscles. However, having said that, you must be careful to not overdo it. You could cause stretch marks if you workout too often.

To make sure that you get enough protein in your diet, try to eat at least 20 grams of protein at each meal. This ensures that your muscles receive a steady fuel supply. For instance, if your body requires 180 protein grams daily, eat six meals a day and have 30 grams at each meal.

Do as many sets and repetitions as you can during your training. Limit your breaks to less than one minute between each set of fifteen lifts or more. When you do this your lactic acids keep flowing and help stimulate muscle growth. Repeating this again and again will build your muscles to their fullest extent.

Building stronger and bigger muscles takes just the right combination of diet and exercise. This article includes several smart suggestions for improving your muscle building routine. With a solid knowledge in place, you’ll be ready to shoot for the moon!
