New mural

Here's the new mural of Vachel's "The Wedding of the Rose and the Lotus". The Vachel Lindsay Association contracted with Ace Sign Company to create and install the mural in Downtown Springfield on 5th Street. The installation was completed on February 1, 2008. Thanks to Downtown Springfield, Inc for their support.

Too bad it has that plasticky sheen to it. Is it actually refurbished, or is this a reproduction placed over the original?

My SO saw this blog listed in the sj-r, and I realized there hasn't been much activity here recently.

We're approaching the 10-years-til date for the appearance of the Golden Book of Springfield! Maybe we should write our own, an open-source book of visions for what Springfield can be. Golden Wiki of Springfield.

Would love to visit your fair city and learn more about my ancestors (Edwards/Todd/Baker). Your blogs are informative and inspiring.

Larry -- The site looks as good as wehen I visited last year, and almost exactly the same. I hope you're doing okay. Read at Facebook you own no cell phone and have never visited a Wal-Mart. I am the same re cell phones, but I caved when I had to buy a TV converter box. Haven't been back since. Poets in the Parlor at Vachel House is back in action. Details and pictures are posted at

Finally, hope you will add a link to my blog and delete Writers Chronicle and the other I had in the mid 90s.

KUDOS for this fine effort!

Nothing makes your advent at school better than a Coach handbags . These Coach Bonnie are manufactured from the leather of topmost quality. The Coach Wristlet designs are classical. Coach Ergo prove to be durable throughout the year.

What do we care most during the purchase of Breitling Watches ? There is no doubt that we take the priority to check the brand which directly affects Breitling Aeromarine value. Among so many designer timepieces, I highly recommend you to buy Breitling Windrider watches. They are really second to none collection for Bentley 6.75 watches addicts.

lv bags are very expensive and to make sure that you are putting your hands on original LV bags, then see the price tag. Never purchase the bag, which is being sold at low price, for it will not be an original one cheap louis vuitton bags bags are manufactured with the best fabric. The exterior of lv bag is designed and manufactured with soft and smooth leather, which does not, has wrinkles on it. The smooth and silky texture of the leather makes them luxurious and elegant.
