Hello World!

Originally from the UK, I now live in the north of Sweden with Crickson

We are scientists :)

I also knit, bake and play the recorder, but not all at once.

Science resources:

Want to find out about proteins? Try this for starters - RCSB Protein data bank: Molecule of the Month in alphabetical order


Want to find out what is known about any particular gene? Here's a good place to start. - Entrez Gene This is probably my favourite starting point for finding out about a new gene of interest and has handy links to most of the references and sequence information.


Want to find a piece of peer-reviewed scientific research? Want to check the references from an article, or look up the publication record of an expert quoted in a newspaper or blog piece? Try this database. It will give you the abstract (outline) of every paper and will link to the full thing and tell you which articles are free and open-access. - NCBI's PubMed All newly published research is quickly added to this site.


Want to be able to decode DNA? This is how DNA codes for protein, and is, to my eyes, a thing of beauty. - The Genetic Code (presented here as RNA. For DNA, simply replace the U's with T's (Uracil with Thymine)).


And for geeks who need to get out more :) - The PCR Song and another PCR song


Good for your brain: - Ben Goldacre's Bad Science blog

It's the little things that keep you going...

Four Seasons Tea Rooms, Houghton, MI

This has to be the last place I would have thought I'd find an
Edwardian-style tea room, complete with extensive china tea making
accessories around the walls and fine display of Edwardian hats. The choice
of teas was extensive and what we had was brewed to perfection. The cakes
were delicious, and I have now experienced scones with lemon curd and cream,
which was very nice indeed :)
It is quite dark inside though so I had to use night mode and try not to
move too much to take these.
Somehow I think I'll be back to this place :)

The fluorescently-coloured bread was just wrong.

And I'm very grateful for it! There are certainly lots of Cornish sounding names in the local cemetery, along with all the Scandinavian and Eastern European and Japanese and I'm not sure who else. It's a good mix alright. Still have to try a local pasty :)

The coloured bread was a bit weird though...

Dhamaka says:

the idea is great and I'm happy to hear you enjoyed it

but multi-coloured flourescent bread????

I shudder to think..... So why's my mouth watering at the same time?

Very Jane Austen. And green bread? must be the twist ;-)

MaggieD says:

Oh wow, and is that a classic brown betty teapot?

sorry to say that that bread really spoils it for me :(

Spiderbaby says:

The teapot was actually green but of brown betty style. It is quite dark in there so the brightly coloured bread may be purely practical to help you find the sandwiches :)
