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 queued up for Canada once, but when I got there it was closed :-(

Queueing for Canada has a nice ring to it. I buy into the stereotype of Canadians as polite people, so I imagine there is a high standard of queueing over there.

I queued at 4am on Boxing Day in Canada outside Circuit City for a telly in the sales. It was sub-sub-sub zero and the staff came out with little heat pouches to keep us warm.

As you can imagine, we were virtually waved through on the Canadian side...

so glad you didn't drive up here, if you were feeling rotten.

hope it was typically canadian--polite, boring, lots of trees. I don't worry about the canadian side of the border--it's the energetic US guys who tell me to get out of my car, spring the hood and ask me if anyone ever smoked dope in my car...and the sniffer dog. wonder what happens if you have mohamed in your name..

Yes, that was pretty much our experience. The Canadians take your word for it, but the US guys have to check you don't have a car full of guns and drugs. I guess they have to protect the domestic gun and drug market somehow.

all the fun has gone out of smuggling stuff from the US into Canada because our dollar is worth more. I once smuggled a bunny into Canada, though.
