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 : )

Looks really interesting.
Good luck to you both - how long are you there for?

Gael> At least 2 years, probably a bit longer. A lot depends on whether we get to like living here! At the moment we're both very homesick for Rhode Island!

Spiderbaby says:

It still hasn't quite sunk in that we've left. Rhode Island was lovely. I think we'll like it here too, once we get know what we're doing. There's a lot going on and I'm looking forward to getting into it.

We're Spiderbaby and Crickson sick in RI... Microspikes for your boots may be a good investment. Looks beautiful there tho!

I've actually been to Umea! I may have stayed there for a night - we got the ferry from there to Vassa. in Finland.
I like Scandanavia lots, I'm sure you'll settle soon. Do you get lessons in coping with the dark? Can Spiderbaby work too, or will there be lots of cake making and knitting like in the early USA days?
EDIT sorry for the twenty questions! PS the talk in our canteen the other day was about the prof who left his life's work on his laptop, I gather that was at Umea too. Make sure Crickson uses his backup!

Spiderbaby says:

Really! One day we hope to take that ferry to go to Moominland (well I do anyway) :)
Do you think his laptop is still here somewhere? Are there clues? Maybe I could find it!
In theory I can work here, and am job hunting (though finishing up some previous lab stuff first/at the same time). Hopefully something will turn up but in meantime you surmise correctly; there will be knitting and baking :)

Awww, I'm sorry you're both homesick, but your new home looks lovely and interesting. I'm sure you'll be exploring soon and feeling better.
