    Hi, I'm Rita. I'm new to the forum and to photography. I'm really looking forward to enjoying this site and using it to better my skills.

    I live on the bluffs of the Illinois River with my 4 furry kids and my husband, Kevin. He's a deckhand for a barge company, so I have lots of free time to play with my camera.

    LMAO! That is Dexter, the 2 year old, 90 lb. labradoodle. He's awesome. I also have Daisy, a 9 month old mini schnauzer who rules the world. And the Maine Coon cat brothers, Rocky and Mr. Muffin, at 20 lbs. each. My real kid (the furless one), Amanda, is 25 and living in Minneapolis.

    Hello, and welcome!

    I'm futher north and on the other side of the state, so I had to "look up" Calhoun County. Did you know that Wikipedia reports: "According to the TransUnion credit bureau Calhoun County is the only county in the United States to have a 0% delinquency rate on both credit cards and mortgages as of October 2008." Wow.

    Wow, I didn't know that. I think perhaps because our little hometown banks don't report to the credit unions? LOL

    It's a cool place. It's basically a peninsula with one land road in or out and 4 ferries and a drawbridge. Population about 5,000 total in the county, and not one stoplight.
