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 : )

Darwin is currently in pride-of-place in the main hall. I think it's usually the museum's founder that gets to go there...

It's a nice statue, he looks very thoughtful.

He's thinking about the gorilla he got that overhanging brow from.

I just read the Wikipedia article on Richard Owen- interesting material!

Owen was a nasty little man who hated Darwin intensely. Ironically, for his lifetime, Owen had to look at Darwin's statue in the place of honour. It was switched to Owen in 1927. Darwin returned in 2009, and I went to say hello. Nice to see him again. Wonder where Mr Owen is now....

I don't think he gets hung up about titles and stuff. I bet he wouldn't mind if I called him "Dave the animal man". : )
