G’day! Byron the Quokka here–and if I ever knew it’d be so much trouble, running a comment contest, I never would’ve volunteered to do it.
Right–we’re shooting for 47,000 comments, we’ve got 46,335, so that leaves 665 comments left to go. I thought we’d be done by now. I blame Lee. He should’ve listened to me and offered a bicycle as a prize. But no, he has to stick to his autographed books.
And then there’s the Bell Mountain Trivia Contest, I have to come up with Question No. 6. Tomorrow, maybe. My mum says running two contests at the same time is fair dinkum loopy and I never should’ve let him do it–but that’s all “How d’you get to Sydney Opera House? Practice, mate–practice!”

Here are the questions Mrs. Holliman asked me…
What great things have GOD done in your life? God has given me a lovely family who loves me and many other blessings, and above all He gave me the Lord Jesus Christ so that I may be cleansed from all of my sins! What is your favorite vacation place?I like Okinawa. What is your favorite holiday and why? I like the New Year holiday because we can spend time together as a family and thank God for all the blessings. Do you believe in faith? Yes, of course! I believe that my faith in Jesus comes from the Holy Spirit, not my own doing. I am a child of God by God’s grace because I have faith in Jesus Christ my God and Savior. What is your favorite color?I like green!! Have you ever been tempted to do evil? If so how did GOD help?I am beset with temptations every day, and God will help me through His Word the Bible. That’s why memorizing Scripture is so important. Where was your last vacation? In America. What is your favorite food? My favorite food is taco rice.

Are you very close with any of your extended family?Well, I don’t get to meet them very often, but I do get to meet them and chat with them sometimes. How long have you been blogging? I’ve been blogging for 9 and a half months. What’s one of the most exciting things that has ever happened to you? The assurance that Jesus died on the cross for my sins. Have you ever gone to an amusement park and if so, which one?I’ve gone to Tokyo Disney Resort, which was very fun!! I’ve been there twice.

I get the common cold fairly often. Do you prefer shopping online or in the store?I prefer shopping online. What do you think is wrong with the world?

What book (besides the Bible) have you read and learned the most from? I’ve learned many spiritual things from Charles Spurgeon’s Morning and Evening Devotions.
G’day! Byron the Quokka here, reminding you that we have a comment contest going–and there aren’t any bloomin’ comments yet today!
Only 984 comments to go, to get to No. 47,000, and the reader who posts it wins… oh, one of those autographed books he’s always giving out. Anyone can play, as many times as you like, and all comments are eligible, except [riffles through rulebook; clears throat]–
“Comments abusive to anyone else on this site; comments containing blasphemy or profanity; commercials thinly disguised as comments; comments simply too inane to bother with.”
My cousin Lucy likes inane comments, but she’s the only one.
So let’s see how fast we can get to 47,000! And later today I’ll run up Question No. 4 in the Bell Mountain Trivia Contest.
(I hope these generate some excitement soon! This is my first job ever, and I don’t want to…
G’day, mates! Byron the Quokka here, with some clarification about our Bell Mountain Trivia Contest.
I don’t know how the rumor got started, or who started it, but there are not going to be any essay questions in this contest. My cousin Bengay is crazy about essay questions. He turns everything into an essay question. Ask him what’s the bloomin’ time, and he gives you an essay.
We don’t need that in the contest, do we? Short answers are the best. And by the way, here are the answers to the first two questions:
One, the best wine in Obann comes from Durmurot; and two, Martis’ horse is named Dulayl. Question No. 3–who called himself the king of Lintum Forest?–is still in play, and Question No. 4 will come up by and by. There will be 20 questions. The reader with the most right answers gets a gold watch with…
God, Sant Kirpal Singh Ji, Dr. Harbhajan Singh, Biji Surinder Kaur, Kirpal Sagar, Unity of Man, Spirituality, Love, Compassion, Peace, Non-Violence, Right Understanding, Consciousness, Togetherness, Religions, Mind, Maya, Poems, Aphorism, Digital Art
