The personal field journals of Ruth and David Duncan

Hola Junior Magbeologists!

I had my first dive lesson today, and let me just say it is as nerve wracking as I thought it would be. I had to stick this uncomfortable contraption in my mouth - it's called a regulator- and then try to breath underwater? Hated it. It's a good thing I'm getting practice for this dive in a pool. I'm trying hard not to think about doing it for real.

Anyway, Headquarters has asked I post the answers to the questions in the JULY issue of Magic Beast Press. So here goes:

On the Diagram of Simone:
C WET SUIT or BCD (dive vest)

What two crucial pieces are missing in order for Simone to breath underwater: REGULATOR and OXYGEN TANK

Check back for more updates. I gotta run, David is stuck in his wetsuit from 2 summer's ago - it isn't pretty.

Hello Human-Kind: I've been watching Ruth and David
hunched over their computers and I want in on this action!

Now, you might be wondering how a tiny faerie might be able to blog - I have magic powers of course! No seriously, there is no magic involved. Ruth is typing while I recite what I want to say.

So what do I want to say? Just hello and if you didn't previously believe in magic-kind, well I hope to change your mind. Hey that rhymed! I am genius. You'll figure that out soon enough.

I am Simone - Cottonwood Cottage's resident faerie of nearly one hundred years....don't I look good for my age?

I'll be back quick as a faerie's sneeze,


You all may be wondering- what in the world is a Dragon Stone? A few days ago, I honestly didn't believe one even existed.

Dra-co-nite (or commonly referred to as Dragon Stone) is a magic stone fabled to be located in the brain of a dragon. Just a little factoid I thought you might be interested in knowing.

Now the question is, does it exist or not? I would love to tell you - but I have been notified by Dr.Blackford that we are not allowed to give away too much of our've got to find out for yourself.

Until next time,

Baby Ruthie

Ruth is going to flip when she sees I put this old portrait up I did years ago. She is six here - and she is still the uptight, stuffy picture of scientific excellence!

Isn't she just adorable? Don't you just want to pull those cute l'il pencils from that bun?

Love ya sis - couldn't resisit.
Catch ya later,

What's up everyone. I didn't believe Ruth when she told me that Dr.Blackford started this blog for us. I mean it's pretty cool. A few days ago, I would have wondered why anyone would want to know what I was doing. Now, I have to admit - you'd probably be missing out on some wicked action if we didn't include you in on this expedition. It's pretty Top Secret, I'll have to check with Dr. Fitzgerald as to how much we are allowed to know, for our own
safety and all. I agree with Ruth (which is rare)that you should check out the first book or you won't have a clue as to what is going on. Anyway, I Gotta go.
Ruth said there's a peeved garden goblin hacking up the rose bushes. Mom won't believe me when I tell her the goblin did it.

Check ya later,

The Duncan Family Adventure

visit today to order one of our rare journals

Hello Everyone! I was just contacted by Dr.Blackford from the Society of Magbeologists informing me that she has taken it upon herself to set me and David up with our own blog, so we can document our travels around the world...although resistant to the idea ( a laptop is hard to keep in my backpack) I realized this is an excellent way to keep you all informed of our adventures. Please pick up a copy of our first published Journal -forgive some of my messy scribbles and fingerprints. I become so involved in documentation I don't bother trying to be neat. I am currently convincing my angry house faerie to quit buzzing into my computer screen, so I must say good-bye.
Wish us luck!
Ruth Duncan

Magbeology is a very serious scientific field and we wish to only recruit those as fascinated by the world of magic as we are.
