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 : )

It was - all this time I've been paying absurdly little tax, only to discover I've overpaid. No wonder this place is in such a state.

I wish Obama was my dad. Maybe he'll adopt me.

Really! That's incredibly generous of you! I know it sounds like I'm looking a gift DSi in the mouth, but I really don't understand the taxes here. At home it's so much simpler. You work, get paid, government keeps a chunk of it and uses it to pay for civil society. Here people think I'm eccentric because I'm happy to pay tax. The US won't take my money! Even more incredibly there are adverts from lawyers on tv blatantly saying that they'll get you out of paying tax!

I'm still struggling with my state returns. I've worked in two states so that doubles the paperwork : (

Wow - that's some mistake.

At this point I don't care if I'm due a state rebate. Please, people of America, keep my money. Just don't make me fill out anymore forms.
