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 : )

Got this interesting t-shirt for our work sifting out eelgrass shoots for transplant to another bay.

The seahorses and nemo fish of Narragansett bay should be much happier now they've got a new meadow of eelgrass to play in : )

Well done, that Spiderbaby - the world needs more eelgrass - lots more eelgrass. :)

Oh dear, you can see the cogs turning in my brain as I count to 50! Bundles of 50 shoots all tied up with cloth tape.

As a group we bundled together 24,000 shoots enough to be transplant into 12 new beds by the dedicated team of divers, ably supported by a team of sea-kayaking people. It's really great when things like this all come together :)
