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 : )

Sombre music and lots of people visiting the Sept 11th memorial in Providence. Despite the funerial air to the whole thing, a good time was had by all!

But bumbling zombies and vampires can't climb fences it seems.

Fort DUMPling

Fort Wetherill State Park, Jamestown RI (also known as Fort Dumpling, oddly).

Currently in a state of anarchic and colourful disrepair.

New England Lobster Bake, CT

The chef explained how the native Americans taught the settlers how to cook the lobsters (poor things) on a bed of seaweed with very hot rocks. Alas the puritans would not enjoy their lobster with wine. Fools.

Wine tasting

Awful wine, great company. Virtually all my friends in the US are women, strangely.

It's taken ages to go through all the DC pictures, so I'm a bit behind.

From the 4th of July celebrations in Newport. Original period cannons were unbelievably LOUD!
