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 : )

I guess the idea is that over the years the tree will grow around the coins, obscuring the slit. These look like they were put in quite recently...

I like these. Is it hard concrete that is carved? Were the coins put in a natural opening of the tree?

OJ says:

I like these too. So, someone hopes that one day the tree will be cut open for dating and there'll be coins in it?

The words are carved into a wooden table. It has so much in so many languages that it looks like it's covered in magical runes!

As for the tree branch, the coins are placed in lines to form long cracks in the wood.

maybe it will protect the tree...hard to saw down with all that metal mucking up the blade....

i thought copper killed trees - you hammer copper nails into a stump to kill it.
