The Union Block building, completed in 1887, is one of four remaining structures in Taylorville whose facade was manufactured by the Mesker family. The Mesker Brothers Iron Works of St. Louis, Missouri (whose work is seen here) and the George L. Mesker & Company of Evansville, Indiana produced prefabricated architectural elements and building facades from the late 1800s to the early 1900s. The cast iron facade on the Union Block building has been beautifully preserved.

This building, located on S. Washington St. along the west side of the square, is the most prominent commercial building in the Taylorville Courthouse Square Historic District. The Photoshop poster edges effect has been lightly applied in the processing of this image.

Taylorville is the seat of Christian County, and is located about 25 miles SE of Springfield. The population of Taylorville was 11,427 at the 2000 census.

You are invited to stay and browse through my photostream. Here’s a quick index to my Flickr site:

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 "counrtyside") 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.

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:

Automobile Photograph Collection
: 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.)

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.

There is tons of information available to help you build muscle safely. If you made the decision that you want to build the muscles on your body, take the time to understand what your body needs. This article will give you the information you need to get started.

Vegetables are an essential part of your muscle building nutritional diet. Many diets designed to help you build muscle focus too much on carbohydrates and proteins without including the necessary vegetables. There are many nutrients in vegetables that can’t be found in some foods with high protein. In addition, they are excellent sources of fiber. Fiber can help the body use the protein more effectively.

Don’t skimp on protein when building muscle. Protein is the primary building block from which muscles are made. When your body lacks the protein it needs to effectively build muscle, you will have much less success in achieving the muscle mass and physique you seek. Aim to eat lean and healthy proteins at least three times a day.

Eating an appropriate quantity of protein helps build muscle. One of the best ways to get the protein that you need is by utilizing protein shakes and supplements. These shakes work very well immediately after you workout and right before you hit the sack. If you would like to drop fat and build muscle at the same time, you should just consume one per day. If your goal is to also increase your mass, consuming as many as three per day will be beneficial.

Always stretch thoroughly after working out to give your muscles the best chance to repair and grow properly. If you are under 40 years old, maintain the stretch for at least 30 seconds. However, if you are older than forty, you should try to maintain a stretch for about sixty seconds. This method of stretching helps you avoid injury after your muscle building exercises.

It can be beneficial to train opposite muscles during the same workout. Examples are the muscles in your back and the muscles in your stomach, or the quads and the hamstrings. By doing this, one muscle can relax as another one works. This helps you workout even harder, as you don’t need to spend as much time working out to get the results you desire.

It is OK to take a few short-cuts when weight lifting. If you need to finish a few extra reps in order to get the most out of your workout, don’t use your entire body. Though, be mindful that you do not do this often. Control how quickly you complete each weight lifting cycle. Don’t do an unreasonable number of reps in a short period of time. Maintain your form throughout as well.

Schedule your workouts intelligently, as this will maximize muscle growth while minimizing the risk of injury. If you are working on your muscles for the first time, only do strenuous workouts two times a week. Those that have more experience and have already been conditioning their muscles can safely work out this way three times in a week.

It is critical to count calories when attempting to build muscle. There is good calorie intake and bad, so you need to be aware of what foods are healthy for building muscle and what is bad. A bad diet makes you fat – not muscular.

As stated before, you need to really understand what your body requires to be effective in building muscle. Be sure to take the time to educate yourself about the right way to build muscle. The tips in this piece are a great place to begin working toward your objectives.
