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 : )

and without even trying..
were they moving? different colours? or like the ones I saw which were pretty much as if someone had put net curtains over the entire sky?

Moving very slowly, and just green. It took us a while to walk far enough out of town to find a dark enough field to see it properly. The lamps you can see there are for a ski trail.

This was the best shot I got, I had reckoned that the wooden box thing in the bottom right would be out of shot, but alas it just sneaked it : (

Hooray! So glad you got to see them :) They move a lot slower than you expect don't they?

Actually I thought they were quite quick compared to what I expected! What I mean to say is, the lights didn't really last that long. Hence the fact that I only really got one shot of them. To be fair, Spiderbaby and I were sharing the same tripod, and this was the last shot I got before I had to hand it over!

I'm so jealous!
This is one thing on my very tiny list of things to do or eat.
