Hello Marc, (if you are listening,)and anyone else who wants to comment that
they agree or disagree, or have any other suggestions to help me solve my
printing problem.

Today, with limited time, I tried to quickly print out a journal from the
LFM site.
It was quite time consuming.  The way the journals are now organized, the
link says,
"journals" but when you reach the page, it is a list of the "updates."  When
you click on the journal/subject  link, it does not take you to another
page, but merely lower down on the same page, so that when you try and print
it out, you wind up printing out the whole
8 or 9 pages of the update (if it is a long one.)
I tried this for a couple journals and then gave up trying to figure out how
to get my HP deskjet to select only the pages I wanted, and this was quite a

I just visited the LFA website,  in particular, this page:


I love the way this is organized.  The page is entitled:  "The Antarctic Team"
and below are the names of all the scientists and other significant people.
When you click on the "name" link, it takes you to a page with a list of the
subjects/titles of all of that person's journals.  If you click on any one
of these subject/title links, you get ONLY that journal, and printing it out
is easy.

Could this be done with the LFM journals?  Do you already have plans to do
this perhaps, Marc?  I don't know about the other teachers, but in high
school, we do not have our own rooms, and so our time is extremely limited
at our classroom computers.  In my school, periods are only 45 mins long.
Anything which can expedite procedures such as locating and printing out
d/ls would be greatly appreciated.

Laura's suggestion that we have a page with a sort of index to help us
quickly locate info from amongst all the great sites would also be welcome.
