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 : )

I should explain, I'm currently staying in Michigan living in what are essentially posh student halls. The kitchen is not well stocked.

Top: First attempt in the microwave. Guess I found the hot-spot...

Bottom: Switched to the more traditional frying pan, but had to improvise the oil. Used the olive oil that always floats to the top of pasta sauce mixed with a few dollops of margarine. Poppadoms fryed ok... but tasted a bit margariney.

Ahhhh. They don't look so bad... :D

The microwave one is pretty impressive. At least you can get them in Houghton. Bring some back!

I'd like to actually, though I think they'd end up in bits.

Silly billy, you don't use any oil when you fry them!

Whoa! Microwave one is quite something. I wonder if you could make "poppadom sculptures" by moving it around in the microwave. Imagine...

If you don't use oil, I find they don't cook evenly. As for the poppadom art... I'd need a bigger canvas.
