G’day! Byron the Quokka here, with Question No. 2 of the Bell Mountain Trivia Contest. I’ve watched Lee do this several times, so I’m sure I can do it, too, while he goes outside and tries to write another book.
Right, here goes! Question No. 2–
What is the name of Martis’ horse?
Yeah, I know that’s an easy one, but no fear–they’ll get harder as we go along. Remember, whoever gets the most right answers wins a bicycle… Oops, shouldn’t’ve said that. The prize is supposed to be a book.
In case of a tie, you both win.
Now don’t make me look like some poor sap of a kangaroo by not coming up with answers. If this doesn’t work, I won’t get any more contests to run. Here, I’ll even give you a hint!
G’day! It’s me, Byron the Quokka, eating a leaf. And the way readers are snoozing over our current contests, you’d think the winner was only going to get a leaf. Crikey!
We have a comment contest going, whoever posts Comment No. 47,000 wins an autographed book. Would you believe we’re still some 1,500 comments short?
Then there’s the Bell Mountain Trivia game, whoever gets the most right answers to our 20 questions will win a bicycle–whoops! I mean an autographed book. So far only one reader has volunteered an answer to the first question: Where does the best wine in Obann come from?
Ms. Crepuscular says “Connecticut” but I’m not counting her answer. I’m in charge of the contest and I won’t accept silly answers.
Well, I told Lee I could run these contests for him, so I hope I don’t wind up looking like some poor man’s wombat. Join…
G’day, it’s me, Byron the Quokka, with a super-important announcement!
We now have just over 45,000 comments on this blog, and Lee says I can start another comment contest as long as I don’t promise that the winner gets a bicycle.
So OK, new comment contest, with the finish line at 47,000, which means that the next contest will be for No. 50,000, a real milestone–and those dumb wombats said we’d never make it! But first this contest. Whoever posts Comment No. 47,000 wins the prize.
I don’t know what he’s got against giving away bicycles. [Editor’s Note: Byron, it wasn’t ours to give! How many times do I have to tell you that?] So I guess an autographed copy of his new book, The Temptation–and if you’ve already got it, you can ask for a different book.
G’day! That picture up there shows Aunt Feezie, Uncle Jeff, and Cousin Ethelred playing Bell Mountain trivia. We quokkas can’t ever get enough of it!
Byron the Quokka here, to introduce The Bell Mountain Trivia Contest, which is like totally all my idea and Lee said I could do it as long as I don’t forget I’m supposed to be running a comment contest–the one you win if you post Comment No. 47,000.
This contest is really simple and anyone can play. Every few days, I’ll ask a Bell Mountain Trivia question. And after 20 questions, whoever got the most right answers wins a prize: an autographed book, most likely. (You know how he is about bicycles.)
Right! Question No. 1:
Where does the best wine in Obann come from?
Of course, it’s a lot easier to answer these questions if you’ve read the books. Aunt Feezie has read The…

About the Blogger Recognition Award (By Jyoti)
The Blogger Recognition Award is an award given in recognition of all the hard work that goes into creating a blog. It is a way for bloggers to support, motivate and promote other bloggers who have clearly put in huge amounts of time and effort, and produced valuable content.
Bloggers are very talented people – they work hard, they promote, market, advertise, run a busy site.
They organise all kinds of activities, they encourage, motivate, interact, engage and are community orientated. It matters not if they are shy and reticent or loud and personable – each actively progressive blogger is the same – they all work hard and passionately with their blogs, they put the hours in to deliver to their audience each day a welcoming location to read, absorb, learn and have fun.
To escape the hustle bustles of city life, or the begrudgeries of boredom – they entice readers to peruse their pages to look for entertainment.
That is what the BRA celebrates.

Two Pieces of Advice I Will Give To New Bloggers – Words From a Fellow Beginner
Try to post a variety of stuff, share your favorite songs, write your own stories, share the things you love to all the world! Just try not to share too much private information, be careful to limit what you share. Try to post interesting things, constantly if possible.
Try to reply to and like all comments, visit others’ blogs, and be friendly! Even if you’re not an outgoing person, make sure you interact with your followers and your fellow bloggers. Have fun in your blogging journey! 🙂
Lee Duigon, I find it hard to express my greatest thanks for recommending me to make this blog! Thank you, Mr. Duigon, and I’m looking forward to what God has in store for me in my blogging journey.
Elijah Holston, thank you so much for being such a great blogging friend and an encouraging Brother in Christ! Also I want to thank you for being my very first follower!
SLIMJIM, pastor for the LORD, thank you so much for always commenting on my blog from the start to now. Let us all grow in the faith and in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!
I’m hurrying to get this posted before Joshua goes to bed. I don’t know what time it is in Japan, but it’s either very late or very early. Oh, well, he can see it when he gets up again: Blessed Assurance, sung by Alan Jackson.
And on top of it, we’ve got some good news–an answered prayer.
On May 5 Joshua asked us to pray for his grandmother and aunt in Japan, who had heard of the Gospel but not yet received it. Today Joshua reports that both are now reading the Gospel of John–and may the Holy Spirit speak to them! In Jesus’ name, Amen.
“I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived. I did not wish to live what was not life, living is so dear; nor did I wish to practise resignation, unless it was quite necessary. I wanted to live deep and suck out all the marrow of life, to live so sturdily and Spartan-like as to put to rout all that was not life, to cut a broad swath and shave close, to drive life into a corner, and reduce it to its lowest terms...”
