Here is Ripley skating! (He has the red Portuguese Soccer Shirt on ... the closest thing we have to a hockey shirt and he likes to "dress the part") Today, Ripley went to his class and participated all by himself. After the class, I skated with him and took these pictures and videos. I can't tell you how excited I was after four weeks taking him out on the ice myself and basically begging and pleading him to participate. Yea! Success!

Hello,

We are researchers at the University of Texas and University at Buffalo working to better understand people's blogging behavior, and you are an ideal candidate to help. We would like very much to hear from you, and would greatly appreciate your time and willingness to respond.

Without your help, this kind of research would be impossible.

Please take a few minutes to read and answer the questionnaire on our research Web site: http://omega.uta.edu/~cyjang/blogsurvey/. It should take about 10 minutes of your time, and your answers will be very valuable.

Your identity will be protected because responses will be coded to provide anonymity; No personal names will be used. Of course, this is voluntary- by completing the survey you give your consent to participate. If you have any questions about the study or the questionnaire, please do not hesitate contacting us at your convenience. In the near future, we will be happy to share our results with you.

Thank you.
