G’day! That’s me, Byron the Quokka, jumping across the shark-infested River of Doom to bring you Question No. 15 in our Bell Mountain trivia contest. Whew–got across unscathed! And here’s your question:

In what battle was Angel, King Ryons’ hawk, honored by the Hosa warriors?

Only five questions to go, and I’m afraid I’m gunner have to make ’em hard, from here on out. How fast can you read Bell Mountain books? Meanwhile, if you’re new here and you don’t know what I’m talking about, just go to the home page and click “Books.”

Well, I got across the River of Doom all right. Now comes the tricky part: getting back.

Charging Blindly into the Story

My weekend allergy attack has abated (that’s three weekends in a row), the sun is shining, I’ve got my eye on a good Sabbath rest–and tomorrow I’ve got to plunge back into my new book, Bell Mountain No. 13, The Wind from Heaven.

I just spent a week typing the four or five newest chapters and sending them in to my editor. I give her the book in pieces so she can stop me if anything goes haywire. So far, nothing has. The last bunch of chapters moved her to say, “This story is moving so fast, you’re gonna need a seat-belt to read it.”

I have absolutely no idea where it’s going. Events are piling up like storm clouds, the wind from Heaven’s blowing hard, and I’m just writing it down. I reckon I’m a little over halfway done. I’ve got to finish before the cold weather sets in…

‘The Hallelujah Chorus’ (Why Not?) — Lee Duigon’s Blog

This is totally beautiful! Singing is a gift from God!

Lee Duigon

We usually hear this around Christmas-time and Easter, but Jesus Christ is King of kings and Lord of lords all 365 days of the year. Any time’s a good time for The Hallelujah Chorus, from G.F. Handel’s The Messiah: performed by the Royal Choral Society.

Oi! Where is everybody this morning?

Byron the Quokka here, mates–and I just stopped by to give you a friendly reminder, which is this.

The current ongoing comment contest is heading towards 50,000 comments on this blog, a major dinkum milestone, and there’ll be a special prize for the winner. We won’t tell you what the prize is until we’ve reached 49,000 comments–because we want to see the fur fly, once readers realize what a fantastic prize this is. We’re just a few hundred comments away from that.

Now I’m supposed to be running this thing, and it makes me look bad when there’s only one comment up so far today. A duck-billed platypus could do better than that!

‘Be Thou My Vision’ (From Lee Duigon’s Blog)

Please enjoy “Be Thou My Vision” — my favorite hymn!

Lee Duigon

Do you love old-fashioned hymns? They don’t get much more old-fashioned than this, from 8th-century Ireland–and still beautiful, still blessing us today. Be Thou My Vision, sung here by the Lebanon County Youth Chorus.

We Did It–10,000 Views (Lee Duigon’s Blog)

I really like that brachiosaurus picture!!

See the source imageThis illustration is here only because I love the Brachiosaurus–more of God’s stuff, don’t you know.

In case you missed the announcement last night, we made it to 10,000 views for the month of August–with 100 extra thrown in. The quokkas threw a party, then demanded that we get 10,000 for September, too.

Also my allergy attack has finally let up on me this morning–24 hours of misery, then it stops. That’s about the fifth time this summer.

Meanwhile, it’s a beautiful day, I’m going to enjoy my sabbath rest, gonna smoke a cigar… and then see what’s cooking with Oy, Rodney.

Ta-Dah! We Did It! (Lee Duigon’s Blog)

Way to go, everybody! Ten thousand views for the month of August, with hours to spare.

This is only the fourth time we’ve hit the 10,000 mark: September 2018, February and May of this year, and now August. I wonder if we’ll ever get to the point where it happens all the time.

Now I have to go back to bed for a while–it’s another allergy weekend. See you tomorrow… with, I think, some more crepuscularity.
