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 : )

Busy as a bee at the Gordon Conference

(viewed 1273 times)

I recently attended a week long (!) conference on Plant Cell Walls. Fascinating though it was (and it was, especially the lignin groups who have splintered over an issue regarding the polymerization of the lignin monomers - there was blood on the walls after those talks), all conference attendees are forbidden to record seminars, photograph posters or discuss results outside of the conference. So no pictures of friends and co-workers standing next to posters.

These pictures are fairly planty, they should do instead.

' "Come into my parlour" said the Spider to the, er, bee', then thought better of it and waited out of the way fro something more manageable.

Lignin - who'd have thought?!

Gordon conference are supposed to be very laid-back (at least in chemistry). Blood on the walls, who would have thought ;-)
