Originally from the UK, I am currently living with Spiderbaby in the sub-arctic city of Umeå in the north of Sweden.

Currently I am working part-time on a research project at Norrlands universitetssjukhus while studying Swedish. In addition I am trying to make my photography hobby pay by making some of my images available to buy from twenty20 or from me directly.

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 PS3-owning mobloggers : )

Too Much Information: The first album I ever bought was the Fraggle Rock soundtrack. Pretty cool, eh? I was only 16 : )

... and goes all medieval on us. I've told her to tell her family in Rhode Island that this is how we dress in northern Sweden.

Anti-ACTA protest in Umeå

(viewed 592 times)
I don't think ACTA stands much chance of being taken seriously in Sweden. I've never known anywhere so comfortable with online piracy!

A bit fishy...

(viewed 1132 times)
I've been a vegetarian most of my life, but due to the ready availability of MSC-certified seafood and growing evidence that vegetarians that supplement their diets with a little fish have better health, I have started to eat fish.

This my just-invented totally sustainable fish pizza. Couldn't find a pizza base in the supermarket, so it's on Swedish tunnbröd with mackerel, prawns, mussels, cheddar and mozzarella, with a spicy tomato base.

Might be nice, might be minging. I'll let you know.
