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
Source: New Scientist 27 July 2013.

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 : )

It got up to 96 in chicago, i don't know how you are coping! I just went from one air conditioned place to another really slowly. Did you get the storm up there? Sheet lightining is very impressive but the tornado warning was not funny.

Spiderbaby says:

We get thunder storms pretty much every few days (usually at night). But rather than clearing the air they just add more water to the already humid atmosphere. Feels like we're in a permanent cloud of lake steam :(
Got caught in a terrific downpour the other day on my way home from the local shop. Got soaked to the skin and was pretty much dry again by the time I got home!

How was the conference?

The conference was ok, 5000 dementia scientists are a interesting bunch! The poster went down ok lots of talking, I felt like my mouth was going to crack by the end from the smiling!

The humidity really is something - I definately prefer dry heat, never mind you have 3 foot snow to look forward too lots of snow men to build. I got soaked in the storm too - wet T shirt competition style!

Snowmen... Now that is something to look forward to :) Glad you had a good time.

ok I had to google that one. glad to see it's not a real syndrome and now nige's first comment makes perfect sense, I think...

(5000 dementia scientists at a conference? there's the makings of a spectacular joke just waiting to be told)

Everyone says it'll be snowing soon. I'm still not sure I believe them, but I'm looking forward to it anyway.

Someone's already done one of my CSLs : ( Their paper is out soon. Gits.
