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 : )

A bit fishy...

I've been a vegetarian most of my life, but due to the ready availability of MSC-certified seafood and growing evidence that vegetarians that supplement their diets with a little fish have better health, I have started to eat fish.

This my just-invented totally sustainable fish pizza. Couldn't find a pizza base in the supermarket, so it's on Swedish tunnbröd with mackerel, prawns, mussels, cheddar and mozzarella, with a spicy tomato base.

Might be nice, might be minging. I'll let you know.

Hope it's good - are you enjoying your fish? This is the way Beth went.

tunnbrod pizza is an excellent idea, sounds great.

Jamie Oliver's website has a very good pizza dough recipe if you're feeling really inspired. It's stretchy enough to do the whole throwyspinny thing too.

Spiderbaby says it was "very nice" but followed it up with "it's not something I would choose to do for myself" so perhaps not a total winner.

I liked it.

Vegetarians who eat fish aren't vegetarian. You're now a pescatarian, Just FYI :P

True, although I don't describe myself as vegetarian. I haven't done for years. I only eat vegetarian food at home, when I go to a restaurant I'll generally have vegetarian food if available. In a lot of the US and other places there is absolutely no veggie option. Also I although if asked I'll tell people I prefer vegetarian food, if I'm invited round for dinner I'll eat what I'm given. Unless it's eggs.

It was very nice! I've never been much of a fish fan but I am enjoying these educational experiences :) More please!

That looks good. I'm pretty much like that too when it comes to eating, except I just don't understand how someone can not like eggs. :)
