Better than magic!

Cynthia here. I couldn’t hold this one in! Today during my medical training they taught me how to use one of the most amazing machines ever. One of the geological team had some sort of freak accident and it snapped his spine. On earth that would mean her would never be able to walk again.but this, machine is able to provoke the surrounding cells to heal and he is expected to make a full recovery. Granted he will need extender therapy to relearn how to walk, but it is amazing to be able to help him.

Cynthia, Athena, and Becky checking in…

Debbie has been a little distracted lately. Captain white snuck her one of the manuals for the fighters because she has been pestering him for one for months. Sooo we are sneaking on… Randy and Joel told us how. We would like to note that the boys are 75 percent as guilty as Debbie makes them out to be. But we will give her the 25 percent as artistic license. 

Its fascinating to see how advanced Demeter is. The technology they have for medical, flight, and geography is awesome! We could see some very prominent scientists licking their chops to get their hands on even half the stuff they have here. Granted some of those scientists have been here. 

Oh shoot Debbie is coming in… we’ll get more on later.


So this is where Debbie has been blogging…

Randy and Joel here. We knew Debbie has been blogging for quite some time. We have never been able to figure out where or how to access it, but now we have found it. Victory to us. So its time for people to get the real story of whats been going on. We would like to make it clear that Debbie has started all the trouble. The rest of us are just hapless victims of her misadventures. Not that we complain too much. Its always fun to see what she’ll do next. Man though you should have seen her when she got back from the SFWC. She was on a high. Kept telling stories after stories about funny things she had done and how much everyone loved her, but hey that’s Debbie for you… She told us one story about how she was in a room with about 50 other people waiting (which means there were probably 10 other people)  for two presenters to arrive. The presenters were late, and Debbie says she just couldn’t resist so she walked up to the podium and welcomed everybody to the 2013 Veterinarian Conference and told them the presentation that night was going to be about spading dogs. She claims half the people in the room looked really confused and were about to get and leave, but a couple of the people she had befriended at the conference (man does she make friends quick)  called out that it was a joke. According to Debbie the room broke out into laughter. 

Anyways we weren’t sneaking on here to talk about Debbie the entire time. She does that enough for everyone. We want to talk about us. So today we were training with our K-15 units, which are like those suits on the first GI Joe’s movie, But waaaaaaay sweeter. In fact the guy who designed those apparently spent some time on Demeter, but that’s another story. So we got to help excavate a small tunnel on the surface of Demeter.Nothing too big. They were just helping us learn all of the functions. After we made the tunnels the Slick commander had us practice our close quarters combat in the tunnels. It was super sweet! It was like the ultimate game of hide and seek meets WWF! Below is a picture we found that is close to what the K-15 looks like.


Doc’s short Biography

I am on the far right. My Granddaughter, Sophie, is sitting on my wife Elizabeth’s lap and my son David is being David

I was born in Spanish Fork, Utah in 1952.  My first attempt at writing was when I was ten years old (manuscript long since lost).  I earned a bachelor degree in Japanese, and spent two years working for the National Security Agency. Delighted with my top secret clearance, but not with my gray desk I moved on to new adventures in the US, and later back in Japan.  I earned an MBA from Brigham Young University, and a PhD from Illinois State University.

When I was twelve years old I was introduced to YA Science Fiction with the writings of Robert Heinlein and other early science fiction writers who brought their adventures to life in my mind’s eye.  I determined that someday I would bring the same sort of adventures to life for another generation.  Demeter is the first book in a five book series that has been completed to fulfill that vision.

I am married, have five grown children, and eight grandchildren.  I am currently residing in Riverton, Utah with my wife Elizabeth.

Sleep Deprivation

So one of the down sides to having so many new and exciting things on Demeter is I get distracted waaaaay too easily. I think I’ve been tinkering with a flight simulator for an hour or so and I finally check the time to discover I’ve been playing…. I mean working with it for four. Granted I am no where near as bad as Ryder… but man….Time flys… quite literally
