    Gary,
    
    Hats off to you that you can get a teenage girl to take an interest in 
    anything other than fashion, pop music, malls, boys and "attitude".
    
    You have her started off on the right foot. I hope that celestial navigation 
    gets her before pop culture does.
    
    cheers,
    
    Robert
