Pony trekking or camping 

I just looked at my Blogpatrol statistics for visitor countries:

United States 285
Canada 44
United Kingdom 5
Germany 4
Denmark 3
Australia 3
Finland 3
Cote D\'Ivoire 3
Nigeria 3
Satellite Provider 2

The first thought that popped into my head?

"I've got to build up my Finnish stats."

Heck, I haven't said anything about Kiira Korpi in a while. Here's some more recent information about her:

Kiira Korpi Galaxin vieraana 6.-7.5.

Kiira Korpi vierailee Galaxissa toukokuun ensimmäisenä viikonloppuna. Kiira vastailee teidän lähettämiin kysymyksiin luistelusta ja monista muista asioista. Millaiseen haasteeseen Kiira mahtaa joutua?

No, I don't know what it says. But she did well in the 2006 World Championships, placing 10th.

And when they're not ice skating, the Suomi people (Suomans?) are conducting important research:

It could be the perfect excuse for mums-to-be everywhere this Easter. Scientists in Finland say eating chocolate during pregnancy may make for happier, livelier babies.

More in the BBC News:

Katri Raikkonen and colleagues at the University of Helsinki questioned each of the women while they were pregnant.

The women were asked to rate their stress levels and the amount of chocolate they ate.

The women were surveyed again six months after they had given birth. This time they were asked to rate their infants behaviour.

The scientists found that women who regularly ate chocolate while they were pregnant were more likely to say their babies smiled and laughed a lot. They were also more likely to say they were active.

The scientists also found apparent differences between the babies of stressed women who ate chocolate and stressed women who didn't.

Stressed women who ate chocolate were more likely to say their babies were less fearful in new situations.

Stressed women who didn't eat chocolate said their babies were quite fearful in new situations.

There are bears there, or so said some TV show I watched once. But that doesn't stop people from pony trekking or camping. (Yes, another followup.)

From the Ontario Empoblog (Latest OVVA news here)

Withholding chocolate from pregnant women is evil.
True story - my wife hated Dr. Pepper - until she became pregnant. She continued to drink it for several years after our daughter was born. (I personally think it tastes like medicine.)

Hormones are funny things...
