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".
Source: Prof David Voas, University of Essex

"For every dollar invested in the Human Genome project, $141 was returned to the US economy". Francis Collins, NIH
Source: New Scientist 27 July 2013.

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 : )

I feel stupid every single day, so I'm glad to hear that it's not all bad. I googled the article, BTW. It can be found here: http://jcs.biologists.org/cgi/content/full/121/11/1771

Spiderbaby says:

It's OK Viv. I'm professionally stupid too and my contract is only for 5 minutes as opposed to Crickson's 10 so we're both job-hunting as of now (which is a shame as I really like my new lab, but that's the way of things). Something will turn up. In the end.

It's a good read :)

Read now, that was fab. Science always makes me feel stupid, so I keep on learning...and loving it. :D

The New York Times quotation of the day is Dr Carol Greider saying "I am thrilled that the basic science can be celebrated." by her receiving a Nobel prize for cell biology. The quotation seemed relevant to this post.
