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 past State Fairs), 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.

Are you looking to buckle down and see some muscle building results? All it might take for you to get started is the right advice for you to follow. In this article are several great muscle building tips. Get the kind of muscles you want by checking them out.

Keep a training diary. Tracking your progress is important when trying to build muscles. The easiest method for recording this information is an exercise journal. Each time you have a workout session, enter what exercises you performed and how many reps you did of each of these exercises. This will help you track your progress, as well as showing you how far you've come.

Packing your diet with as much fresh, natural food as possible is important when you are trying to build muscle mass. Avoid eating a diet that has prepackaged foods because these generally contain additives and other preservatives. These toxins can harm your overall health. Healthy foods are good for immune systems and help to build muscle.

Track your personal bests when lifting weights, and aim to break your records. You can do this by gradually increasing the amount of weight you lift. Another record to keep track of is the amount of reps you are able to do at a specific weight. Compete with yourself to make it more fun and interesting.

Include the "big three" exercises in your exercise regimen. These body-building exercises include dead-lifts, bench presses and squats. These exercise add muscle mass, improve balance, and make your body stronger and more agile. Try to include some variation of these exercises in workouts on a regular basis.

It's important to limit working out to three or four times weekly. This will help your body recover by giving it the time it needs in order to repair itself. If you don't give your body time to rest and recover, then you are likely to get injured.

If you want to build bigger muscles, it is important to eat lots of protein. Synthesis is the process by which the body stores protein. This allows your muscle to grow stronger and bigger, giving you more muscle mass. Protein is found in foods like chicken, beef, poultry and pork.

Carefully choose the exercises that you include in your routine; certain ones may actually make it more difficult to build muscle. Neck work, split squats and dips sometimes include unfavorable joint positions that can put you at risk for serious injury. Heavy loads are best saved for larger muscle groups, such as those involved in completing presses, rows, and squats.

Eat meat to help build up your muscles. Try to eat at least one gram of protein-rich meat for each pound on your body. This helps you to store greater amounts of protein and the greater amount of protein in your system the better your muscles can grow.

Focus on your nutrition and calorie intake on the days that you will be do muscle building exercises. Consume a few extra calories about 60 minutes before you begin your workout. That doesn't mean you can overeat when you are scheduled for a workout, but just be sure to eat a bit more on those days and less on the days you aren't going to be weight training.

Although an increased protein intake can help build muscle, all too many people jack their consumption up sky-high the moment they start their muscle-building routine. This can lead to an additional amount of calories than you need, and if you aren't exercising hard, you might gain fat instead of the muscle that you want. Instead of adding in a large amount of protein all at once, try substituting other foods in your diet for protein, or adding it in small increments. This is the best way to give your body a chance to use the protein that you are consuming in the proper way.

If you are seriously thinking about a muscle building regime, you need to be armed with the correct information and advice. Use these tips to build the muscles you desire successfully. Stay focused on your goal, and do not give up.
