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.

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
Source: New Scientist 27 July 2013.

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 : )

the obligatory VFW-mobile!

Ah, the cultural richness of the yoop. Damn I miss it.

Not the winters of course.

Oh, did you ever live up here then? No wonder you're a bit strange.

Reviewing these pictures it becomes clear that I was a bit more interested in the cars than the girls. Must be getting old...

Ahaha. noo.. I just dated a girl from that part of the world, and holidayed there.

Seriously though, if I could stand the winters I might have settled there. She wanted me to. And yes, it's very, very odd.

Y'see I've heard about these legendary winters... I think they're a myth. I reckon people are pulling my leg - no where gets that cold...

I didn't notice the girl sitting on the back of the car in the third photo. I was gonna say if that bloke is the "youth citizen of the year", the town has serious problems...

Nothing like celebrating the wonder of strawberries.

Ha ha - yeah she does blend into the background a bit in that pic but it was the only one with her facing us.

Ann actually knows her, Ann often goes for a cup of tea at a particular place in town and this 'Young citizen of the year' is a waitress there.

The strawberries actually gave me stomach cramps all day : (

Just wait until the mid-winter parades! Sitting outside in a blizzard in several feet of snow while the Finnish Mitten Festival blocks traffic for an hour is fantastic.
