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 : )

Trip to Newark Castle.

Newark castle got seven shades of shit knocked out of it by Cromwell during the English civil war. The council has been unable to find the funds to attempt repair.

The second photo down looked rubbish on the phone's screen, but I quite like it - Halloween spooky!

See you're still doing the multiple picture thing!

Anyways, this is more like it - a green and pink castle and other nice shots. How're things with you anyways?

Went to Brighton for the weekend to see the sisters and other members of extended family. Had a grand old time but this week is dragging like anything. Still, election night tonight and I see Rich Hall has a show on BBC2.

Yes, the purpleness of the sky was puzzling, i blame the scaryness of the season. So, any nice photos of your weekend you'd like to send or share with the world via your own blog?

Who do I set up one of these blog things then? I've got 500 WAP minutes a month to use as well and I don't know what they are for or how to use them - can I use them for this sort of malarkey?

Hmm... not sure, you'd have to ask your network. What you need is GPRS data on your plan. I get 3mb free each month (although not for much longer). You can buy data in advance and it's quite cheap.

You can always e-mail your pictures in from another computer, or send them to people via MMS.

Andy says:

think I only get 0.5mb of the old GPRS stuff so I doubt that will get me very far. Don't really understand all the GPRS and WAP internet malarkey. Anyways, don't think I'd ever get anything up and running unless I had my own computer to do it with so I'm not going to worry about it at the moment.

Feeling tired today - spent too much time watching the election. Work is also very dull so that's not helping either!!!

Time for more tea....

Actually, 0.5 is probably fine to start with... Don't be too depressed about the election result. I doubt Kerry would have been any better...

Andy says:

Think you are right about Kerry. A lot of people (like me) are probably anti Bush but don't really have a reason to be pro Kerry.

At the same time though I love watching elections and it's a shame it's all over now. From the entertainment side of it all you see.

Have you seen this on the BBC site...

You can look at past elections. In 72 and 84 it was all republican apart from one state. It's funny seeing how much change there was from state to state every 4 years whereas this time it was all quite static.

Maybe the republican and the democrat states should just go their separate ways...This was posted earlier:
