How I Know the Bible is True — A Mom Looking Up

When Hubs and I first entertained the thought of home schooling our children, I wrote out a list of goals. Toward the top of this list was not to just bring them to the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ, but also the ability to know WHY they believe what they believe. ……always be ready to […]

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!”

Lucy the Quokka’s Inane Comments

LOL!!!😂 From Lee Duigon’s blog!

G’day! Byron here, and her in the picture is my cousin Lucy, who is famous for making inane comments that don’t qualify to win a comment contest. Some of you readers have asked for examples of her work. She doesn’t mind. So here are a few.

“If there’s no such place as Orion, then how come we can see it?”

“It’s healthier to do your sunbathing at night.” Crikey, that almost makes sense!

“Where do homing pigeons go if they’ve got no home?”

“They ought to put computers in pogo sticks, like they do in cars.”

“I saw a man get lost once, even though he knew where he was going. He was still lost when he got there.”

No fear, there’s a time and a place for talking piffle. Lucy’s good at it. But you can’t use piffle to win the comment contest.

G’day! I promised to give you all Question No. 4 in the Bell Mountain trivia contest and it took me all day to think of it! Running these contests isn’t as easy as it looked.

Right, well, here it is–

Who gave Cavall to King Ryons?

Mind you, you can’t get these answers if you haven’t read any of Lee’s books–not unless you’ve got a special kind of mind that I’m sure doesn’t exist.

And now back to the family nest for a game of Clue!

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…

Author Interview with Lee Duigon

This is an interesting interview that my favorite author Lee Duigon had a few years ago.

Into the Mind of the Writer

May I present to you all Lee Duigon!

1. What genre are your books?

They are a certain kind of fantasy in which I try to generate wonder without recourse to magic.

2. What draws you to this genre?

I’ve always loved myths, legends, tall tales, and fantasy. I guess I just never outgrew Sinbad stories. Also, I find fantasy gives me scope to tell the kind of story I want to tell. In fantasy, within limits, anything goes.

3. What project are you working on at the moment?

The Glass Bridge, Book #7 in my Bell Mountain series, was just published late in January, and in a few months we’ll get into editing Book #8, The Temple. Come spring, I hope to be ready to start writing the next book in the series. But for the time being, I’m just recharging my novel-writing batteries.

4. What’s it…
