      To the many men and women who use his site.. Children across North
      America need your help. THis is a free weather team site. You can
      sign up and get you own weather team page etc. We have thousands of
      children on the site daily asking questions about weather, and where
      they live. You all can help answer weather questions in your local
      regon.

      If you work with students,or anyone, you know that they've gone "ga-
      ga" for the "social" pages on the internet. You know the sites—the
      ones with "---space", and "---book" in their names. Kids love these
      sites because they can publish their own comments, pictures and
      videos. They are in control—they pick the topics and they choose the
      content.

      When properly supervised, there's nothing wrong with these sites.
      Problem is—THEY are kids!
      A quick scan of these social pages shows that kids are spending a
      tremendous amount of valuable time, preparing elaborate
      presentations, on topics that have little or no long-term value for
      the kids who spend all that time.

      Don't you wish that you could direct some of that time, and all of
      that technical know-how, toward something more productive? Well, now
      you can!
