I am married to Spiderbaby and live in Banbury, Oxfordshire after eight years living in the USA and Sweden. I am working and training as a clinical scientist for the NHS in Oxford.

There are now over ten years of photographs on my blog! It all started with a photograph I took on the 1st of May 2004... It's been a wonderful journey, thank you all who have shared it with me, and made this blogging community one I keep coming back to!

Interesting things I read recently:

"Only one in five people born [in the UK] since 1975 believes in God".

"For every dollar invested in the Human Genome project, $141 was returned to the US economy". Francis Collins, NIH

I am Pavlovs_dog on PSN and would be happy to link up with Playstation-owning mobloggers : )

Too Much Information: The first album I ever bought was the Fraggle Rock soundtrack. Pretty cool, eh? I was only 16 : )

My Michigan pt 2

A. It's the kind of thing that happens here...

B. I also spent a lot of time in this thing. The magic tape sealing up the crack is completely capable of protecting me from the poisonous fumes. Safety first.

C. Until quite recently the head of the biology dept. was a creationist.

D. Nowhere does dive bars like Michigan.

E. Kenken - the grad student I work with is quite a fan.

My Michigan pt 1

A. Culinary delights of Michigan, part one: Insanely vinegary crisps. Mmmmm...

B. Culinary delights of Michigan, part two: Sweet potato fries with raspberry sauce. It works.

C. That's why I'm here: A Gas Chromatograph Mass Spectrometer. It was broken for the whole month.

D. The Heights. The university residences, and they're the best I've even known.

E. Michigan Tech students don't try hard enough.

First snow I've seen since I got back to Michigan. It's very late this year!

I just wanted some poppadoms!

I should explain, I'm currently staying in Michigan living in what are essentially posh student halls. The kitchen is not well stocked.

Top: First attempt in the microwave. Guess I found the hot-spot...

Bottom: Switched to the more traditional frying pan, but had to improvise the oil. Used the olive oil that always floats to the top of pasta sauce mixed with a few dollops of margarine. Poppadoms fryed ok... but tasted a bit margariney.
