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 : )

Many times we have stood where this flood water is and fed evil minded grey geese.

FFox> First weekend of the month.

I'd heard there was going to be blanket bans on hosepipes in England this year because of a lack of rain. I'm guessing that's not the case in Leeds?

I like the last shot. I thought for a second that the pubs alternative entrance was to go through the window with the step ladder.

On the morning of 23 May my wife and I started walking to the train station from the B&B; on the otherside of the river, and were surprised to find the Ouse out of her banks and rising into the tunnel under the pedestrian bridge (alongside the railroad bridge). "We've got to go now!" I hollared and away we went through about an inch of water. I'm wondering how high the water got that day. York was wonderful and this only added to our visit!
