Cross-Country Connections: Quiet

Cross-Country Connections is a Biodork weekly blog entry dedicated to telling stories in pictures of three family members – me, my sister and Mom – living in very different locations across the country. Every week we choose a different theme and then take or contribute a personal photo that fits the theme. This week’s theme is Quiet.

This week I am in southern Illinois visiting Mom.

From me in Simpson, Illinois: 

Taken at what was once my Grandfather’s farm, now owned by by Aunt Di. This pond was the epicenter of the farm in my world. We swam and fished for bluegill and catfish here when my Dad was still alive. 

From Erin in Washington DC: 

Presented without comment, The Library of Congress in Washington DC.

From Mom in Carbondale, Illinois: 

Quiet in the midst of chaos – Thompson Woods in the middle of Southern Illinois University.

    Today, I went to the beach with my children. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old
    daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She
    placed the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside
    and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completely off topic but I had to tell someone!

    Hello my name is matt d’agati. Several people remain bewildered when mapping experienced resume drafting professionals equates to a proper nest egg and this is a understandable inquiry, so we ought to first examine a small number of of the statistic ends that are connected with doers who make the choice and assemble a renown knowledgeable resume creator service.
    Let us begin this forum by acknowledging that the site for an employment network referred to as Ladders, asserts that mailing a resume created by a resume building syndicate for any seen job opening invigorate that professional’s possibilities of persevering by 40%. As concluded, communicating a deftly created resume to effectively any online organizational vacancy opening will increase the applicant’s likelihood of winning an meeting by 51%.

    Put it in writing, having a gold resume that is baked by a winning resume writing station delivers a syringe -sharp competitive fire to professional level job seekers and especially CEO -level employment seekers, therefor absolutely every certified professional resume scripter organization also makes worthy and effective online profiles along with super resumes. Without a doubt, having finding a resume that is perfectly -written as well as properly conceived is forever the most important guidepost of any job hunt, and possessing an equally grounded LinkedIn presence is verifiably marginally less mandatory in the way of landing a job. matt d’agati
