Hi Barb,

Let me see if I can help with your question:  It is true that when you go
to the updates section, the journals are not isolated for individual
printing.  The purpose of this section is to call attention to
some interesting journals that are going online. However, much like the
files you mention on LFA, we have a team section on Live from Mars in
which  we have biographies of the individuals and their journals
listed individually. If you want to print a jounal by itself, go to the
file of the writer at   and at the
top of that file you will see "My Journals". There just like on LFA you
will find just the journal for printing out.

If you have any problem with it, please let me know.
