Comment Contest Reminder

Image result for images of pyramid with neon lights

Don’t anybody say I’m giving you short notice: there are only about 300 comments to go to reach lucky 20,000, and whoever posts that comment wins a prize.

A pyramid with your name on it–in neon hieroglyphics! A weekend on Solitude Island in the Siberian Arctic, with the celebrity of your choice! Rhinestone socks signed by Joe Collidge!

Or, if my plans for those prizes fall through, an autographed copy of one of my books.

Anyone can play, and all comments are eligible except: comments abusive to me or to another reader; blasphemy; any use of the f-bomb; ads thinly disguised as comments (it’s insulting); or comments simply to vapid to bother with.

Other than that, anything goes.

Remember the Comment Contest!

It doesn’t have quite the ring of “Remember the Maine,” but it will have to do: there are less than 500 comments to go to No. 20,000, and whoever posts that comment will become President for Life of some undisclosed country. Either that, or you win an autographed copy of one of my books.

There are a lot of new visitors here since the last contest, so let’s hear from you.

Win Fabulous Prizes in Our Comment Contest!

We have less than a thousand to go to reach Comment No. 20,000 on this blog, so that means it’s time for another comment contest. Whoever posts No. 20,000 will win something mind-bogglingly fantastic… if my negotiations with Fabulous Treasure Inc. don’t fall through. Win your own foreign country to rule as absolute monarch! Or a huge chest full of gold coins and uncut rubies! Or your portrait painted by Peter Paul Rubens!

Otherwise, an autographed copy of one of my books.

The contest is open to all, and any and all comments qualify, with the following exceptions: comments abusive to me or to any other reader; any use of the f-bomb; blasphemy; commercials thinly disguised as comments, that somehow get past the spam filter; comments simply too inane to bother with. Other than that, anything goes.

I expect it will take up all of October to get to No. 20,000, but let’s just see.

Coming Up: I Review ‘The Case for Christ’

Image result for images of surprised baby

First I have to loosen up my brain with a bike-ride, and then I’ll review this very good movie for you.

I feel a kinship with this film because I once spent an hour and a half interviewing its subject, Lee Strobel, about his book, The Case for Creation. When I reached him by phone, he was on his way out to go skiing, but said he could give me 15 minutes. But once we got to talking, it was hard to stop. My review of that book is floating around somewhere in the archives at http://www.chalcedon.edu/ .

So yesterday we watched The Case for Christ, it was well worth waiting for, and I took notes as we watched. so I’m just about ready to write the review. See you just a little later!

My Newswithviews Column, Sept. 21 (‘It Must Be Magic’)

Here’s this week’s offering–trying to tie together a couple of subjects I’d already discussed, here on this blog.


As you can see, I’m beginning to wake up to the possibility that liberals, besides being comical and annoying, also might be very dangerous.

Welcome, Newbies! Please Check Out My Books

My stats page tells me I have a lot of new viewers on this blog; and I would be surprised if many of them were aware that I have novels out there, too.

Look at that beautiful cover, up there, by Kirk DouPonce! The Throne is Book No. 9 in my Bell Mountain series, all of which are available through amazon.com or directly from the publisher at http://www.chalcedon.edu/store.com/ .

Mostly of you never heard of these, but you can find out about all nine novels in the series simply by clicking “Books” at the top of the page. Artwork, cover blurbs, and sample chapters–it’s all there.

Book No. 10, The Silver Trumpet, is currently in production. Meanwhile I’m writing No. 11, The Temptation. But for the time being, there are nine of them out there to get you started.

Take the plunge! Buy one! It’s cheaper than a movie!

A Milestone for This Blog

Hum, baby! Yesterday this humble blog acquired its 500th follower. I thought that wouldn’t happen until the end of the year, but a lot of people have been showing up here lately.

If you’re new here, please click “Books” and take a look–cover art, blurbs, and sample chapters–at the nine (so far) books of my Bell Mountain series. We also take hymn requests and prayer requests, comment on the news, and in general try to serve the Kingdom of Our Lord Jesus Christ.

I wonder if I can interest my wife in a game of Mille Bornes…

On the Road Again Today

Well, they tell us they’ve made “a good recovery” of data from our busted hard drive, so we’ve got to go back up the mountain today to get it. I admit I selected the photo above for dramatic effect. Our destination, New Jersey’s Watchung Mountains, offer no opportunity to drive right off a cliff. Just high, twisty, narrow roads frequented by speeding dump trucks loaded to capacity with stone and chunks of concrete so that they couldn’t possibly stop in time to avoid an accident, driven by persons fanatically devoted to tailgating… [pause for hyperventilating]

I don’t know how long that’ll take, or how much new material I’ll have time to post today. But if you’re new here, please feel free to browse among the blog archives–you’re bound to find something that’ll amuse you.

Another Crass Commercial Message (from Me)

Image result for images of bell mountain by lee duigon

By now, I think, most of the regular visitors to my blog have already bought my books. But I live in hope that every day brings visitors who’ve never been here before and haven’t heard of my books.

Well, it’s easy to find out all about them. Just click “Books” at the top of the page, and you’ll see covers, descriptions, and sample chapters of all nine in the series–with No. 10, The Silver Trumpet, currently being made ready for publication.

Sorry for the commercial, but I do have to do this now and then.

Just Missed!

Our month of June fell just 53 hits short of 6,000. Oh, well. So we start a new one.

The temptation for me is to get hung up on the numbers. I pray that doesn’t happen.

In our own small way, using the tools that He has given us, we are trying to advance God’s Kingdom. I say “we” because I mean “we”–all of us together. There wouldn’t be much here without your readership, and your comments.

And so I say “Thank you” to all of you who take part in this small enterprise.

The cat video comes later.
