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 : )

This guy is driving me crazy parking his over-sized motorbike in the bicycle stand. There is lots of space in the parking lot, but oh no, he has to put it there. The bike stand is usually packed and this makes it even harder to find a rack.

It was even worse yesterday - he parked sideways taking up 6 bike spaces!

I'm suprised it doesn't get scratched!

Annoying indeed. But a possible defence - are there proper motorbike parking spaces (ie, with places to lock the bike to) available because it's not uncommon for bike thieves to pick up motorbikes whole and chuck them in a van, taking wheel/brake locks off later on. The more paranoid biker might prefer being able to lock his bike to something.

A fair point, but 1) He doesn't seem to actually lock his bike to the rack, he just leaves it there. 2) This is Sweden.

1 is a function of 2 but in his defence, even in Sweden there are car drivers who just "didn't see" the motorbike they knocked over on their way into a parking spot.
