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...

Some of the dolls from the Copper Harbour museum. It was quite a collection!

I'm enjoying the surreal quality of these photos...

Dolls is spooky. Some of these particularly so...

Interesting and visually pretty, but creepy. I never was interested in dolls. The last shot should win a surrealism award.

That top one is the creepiest picture I've seen in a while Spiderbaby. It reminds me of that programme I watched as a kid, which featured the dolls in the dolls house who all melted in a fire in the end.

Spiderbaby says:

This is only a small fraction of the whole collection. It really is something to behold, and yes, pretty creepy, but that's dolls for you :)

Sorry OJ, I hope you feel better soon. Do you mean Tottie? That was about a doll's house and I vaguely remember watching it but didn't really understand what the hell was going on most of the time. Or maybe I have blanked it out...

OJ says:

Yes, I do mean Tottie, I had forgotten the name of the series. It was very sinister, as its IMDB entry suggests:

Children's TV is not nearly sinister enough these days :)

OJ says:

Nope, that Spongebob Squarepants nearly never murders another undersea character by setting them alight.

Google has reminded me of the full details of the trauma, which I can clearly still remember....

Spiderbaby says:

I still don't remember the fire. Maybe I had gone outside to play at the point... I remember Apple and Marchpane and Tottie of course, I remember more the way they moved rather than what they did.
Then there's Pinny. That was somehow a bit less sinister.

10th Sep 2008, 15:53

OJ says:

I'm surprised you remember it at all, I thought you were quite a bit younger than me.

Marchpane was evil. I don't remember Pinny.

Spiderbaby says:

I don't remember very much, but I'm probably a lot older than you think... You don't strike me as particularly elderly either ;) That's the power of truly disturbing children's programs, they stay with you when all else fades, whether you want them to or not!

This is so strange - I have just been looking this up H&B; loved it - and I found you! We have a copy of the book somewhere. Beth has tried to get hold of the animation she even got in touch with Oliver Postgate but he said there are no copies!
