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.

 


‘Godzilla Lizard’? Ah, C’mon!

Hi, Mr. Nature here, pleading with whoever’s out there to find this blog 131 more views before midnight–a tall order, but what does it hurt to ask?

Meanwhile, I found this nice video of a marine iguana peacefully feeding on seaweed underwater. I have to take issue with its billing as a “Godzilla lizard as big as a man.” Half of that length is just the tail, and a 6-foot-long marine iguana would be a real whopper. Not impossible, but quite unlikely. Nor does he look like Godzilla, King of the Monsters.

Marine iguanas live only on the Galapagos Islands and are not affiliated with the U.S. military. Social animals, they live in groups along the shore, basking on the sunny rocks. Males fight ritually, doing very little harm to one another,  but sometimes have to break up fights between females, who have no time for ritual and take the issue of ownership of nesting space very seriously.

But it’s more of God’s stuff that’s been working without a hitch, just fine, for I don’t know how many centuries.

I’m lucky if my stuff works two days in a row.


Bonus Cat Video (Can I Get 300 Views Today?)

No, I haven’t forgotten to post the daily hymn. I just wanted to use this cat video while I had it, in case I couldn’t find it again. It’s fun to watch cats having fun! Wish my apartment had a hallway…

It’s the last day of June and I’m 300 short of 6,000 for the month. Don’t worry, I’m not going to ask for money. But if you have an opportunity to share any of the posts on this blog with some friend who hasn’t been here before, please do! I’ve hit that 6,000 mark every month this year but one, and I wouldn’t like to come so close in June, only to fall short on the last day. I mean, really–don’t you hate it when that happens?


I’ve Been Quoted in ‘The Times’

Yep, here I am in The Washington Times this week, being quoted by Robert Knight (http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2017/jun/11/bernie-sanders-ruled-out-public-service-by-christi/) in his commentary about Bernie Sanders’ hostility to Christians.

It seems cuddly ol’ goofy Bernie isn’t so cuddly after all, if he finds out you actually hold orthodox Christian beliefs. That, he says, makes you unfit to hold any kind of public office. Running the country is reserved for atheists and Muslims, Bernie?

Oh, well. We aren’t just whistling Dixie here on this blog. Somewhere, somebody’s listening to us. And by “us” I mean all of us here, and not just me.


I’ll Be at the Eye Doctor’s

Like the man said who designed this chart, “Ah, felopzd!” That’s Hittite for, “Another morning in a doctor’s waiting room.”

Normal service, hopefully, will be resumed when I get back.

Meanwhile, as long as you’re here, please stick around and browse the blog archives. There are thousands of posts here, on hundreds of assorted subjects. You’re bound to find something you like.


And We Have a Winner!

Greg Lammiman’s last comment, believe it or not, hit No. 15,000 right on the nose, making him the winner of our current comment contest. He was also the only one commenting so far today who hadn’t won yet, so he would’ve gotten a favorable finagle factor anyhow. But he didn’t need one.

So, Greg, you get an autographed Bell Mountain book, any book in the series–click “Books” and check the list if you aren’t sure of the titles, because there are nine of ’em out there by now. Then all you have to do is email me, at leeduigon@verizon.net, with your mailing address.

BTW, everybody, Greg makes Christian movies, and very good ones, at that. Maybe someday he’ll have a zillion-dollar budget to make a Bell Mountain movie.

Thank you all for playing–and keep those comments coming!


Win Aladdin’s Lamp!

You know I don’t like to make extravagant promises that I can’t possibly fulfill, so in all honesty, I must reveal that it’s not my comment contest that is offering Aladdin’s magical lamp as a prize.

But gee whiz, it’s the comment contest, I have to do something to make it exciting!

Well, whoever posts Comment No. 15,000 on this blog–and we’ve only got 21 to go!–will win an autographed copy of one of my books. Everyone on earth except for Keith Olbermann is eligible, and any comment is eligible except for the following: remarks that are abusive of anyone else on this site; comments containing profanity or blasphemy (which I’ll just delete anyway, so don’t waste your time sending any), commercials thinly disguised as comments (which is insulting), or comments simply too inane to bother with. Otherwise, anything goes.

Lots of readers have won these contests, so if you’re new to this blog, hop right in! Anyone can play and anyone can win.


Unbearable Excitement! Fabulous Wealth! (Comment Contest)

Where is everybody today? Dudes! Don’t you know there are less than 100 comments to go in our current comment contest?

According to a bona fide board-certified charlatan, Dr. Name Withheld, a member of the International College of Charlatans, whoever wins this comment contest, by posting Comment No. 15,000 on this blog, “will embark upon a course of rare good fortune that will very shortly lead to the acquisition of fabulous wealth, world-wide fame, and a really nice ham casserole.”

Just in case my charlatan is wrong, the backup plan is for the winner to win an autographed copy of one of my books.

The contest is open to everyone in the world, and all comments are eligible, except for the following: comments abusive to anyone else on this site, comments that contain the f-bomb, other profanity, or blasphemy–not that I’m going to publish anything like that. Also ruled out are commercials thinly disguised as comments, and comments simply too inane to bother with.

Hey, this morning’s viewership is way, way down! Please tell your friends and family members about this blog and urge them to visit it. Use threats if necessary.

For new readers: listen, lots of readers have won these contests so far. The next winner could be you!


I’m Here!

Normal service will be resumed this afternoon. I had to sit around the Social Security office all morning to get more paperwork done for Aunt Joan.

I will unwind with a cigar and then get to work.
