Byron the Quokka here, mates–and we’ve got a winner for our Bell Mountain trivia contest. Twenty questions, we asked–and one reader got all twenty right.

Byron the Quokka here–and then, I guess, the Quokka’s occupation’s gone. Shakespeare used to say that. He was a quokka at heart. Oh! And look at this! We’ve got a Quokka T-shirt […]

Finally! The last question of the Bell Mountain Trivia Contest!!

(This is a post from Lee Duigon’s blog!)

G’day–Byron the Quokka here. And I can’t help feeling wistful because the big 50,000-Comment Contest is over and this will be the last question, No. 20, in the Bell Mountain trivia contest. After this, I don’t know what to do with myself. Suddenly playing Clue solitaire seems kind of unexciting. Anyhow, here it is, Question […]

(This is from Lee Duigon’s blog.)

Oh, boy! Byron the Quokka here, with the next-to-last question in our Bell Mountain trivia contest! Question No. 19! And that’s Mum and Dad whispering answers to each other so that you blighters out there can’t overhear. Or else they’re pretending to be a pair of bookends. Of course they both know the answer.

The Storm Has Passed!

I want to thank all those who have prayed for Japan. Typhoon Hagibis has passed, but not without severe damage. As of now, about 50 people have lost their lives in the storm, and some people are still missing. Please pray for the comfort of those who lost their loved ones and their homes. Please pray that God would work in the hearts of His people.

Byron the Quokka here, to announce the winner of our milestone once-in-a-lifetime comment contest! The winner, the reader who posted No. 50,000, which will never happen again, is….trumpets, please!

“Evreilly”! (We know her as Evelyn.) Her comment came in late last night, just as we were packing it in for the day. You can find her comment attached to the post, “My Interview with Lee Strobel”–it’s a great comment, by the way. So Ev wins an official Quokka T-shirt, either in Large (very dark blue) or Extra Large (bright red). All we need from you, mate, is your mailing address: please email it, and tell us your choice of shirts.

Now watch all the comments dry up because the contest is over. I told Lee that wouldn’t happen on my watch, so I’ll have to find some way to keep things hopping.
