Should We Have Another Comment Contest?

See the source image

G’day, folks! Byron the Quokka here: that’s me, sleeping in this morning. But I’m up now, and trying to talk Lee into starting another comment contest.

Just now, we have 54,049 comments. The Christmas Carol Contest is over, and I think we need something to balance out all the bad nooze out there. How about a race to 56,000 comments? Anybody up for that? Maybe this time I can get him to award a bicycle to the winner. There are bikes parked all over Rottnest Island; they can’t all have rightful owners.

Well, we’ve got to find the measure of the popular demand, so let’s hear from you. Lee thinks it’s too soon to start another contest. But that leaves me without a job around here, so let’s see if we can get him to change his mind.


Held Over! Our Christmas Carol Contest

G’day after Christmas! Byron the Quokka here–and are you ready to close our Second Annual Christmas Carol Contest? Well, I’m not!

Crikey, look at all the carols that we haven’t posted yet! The carol with 44 views the day it was posted, Dec. 12 (I think), is still in the lead. I don’t think anyone’s going to beat that, but we can keep on playing. The winner gets an autographed copy of Bell Mountain No. 12, His Mercy Endureth Forever, when it’s published–which should be pretty soon.

Sorry, I’m not allowed to tell you who got those 44 views: don’t want to spoil the surprise. Meanwhile, no way we’re gonna run out of carols! You request ’em, I’ll post ’em.

And a Merry Christmas to us all, and as Tiny Tim observed, God bless us, every one!


Warning! Christmas Music Ahead

See the source image

Byron the Quokka here, folks–and it’s time to get serious. That’s why I’m trying to look serious in this picture.

As much as we’re enjoying our Second Annual Christmas Carol Contest, and as much as we want all of you to enjoy it, too, we haven’t forgotten that a Scientist has warned the world that too much Christmas music can make you crazy. Crikey! We don’t want our readers bouncin’ off the walls and yellin’ “I am a captain in the Queen’s Nay-vee!”

Well, we think you can avoid going crazy if you only listen to these carols one or two or three at a time, and then stop and either take a cold shower or run around the block reciting some of the Canterbury Tales.

Or you could just ignore the whole business and listen to as many carols as you please! That’s what I always wind up doing.

I’m Byron the Quokka, and I approve this message!


Byron’s Contest Report

G’day! Byron the Quokka here, with a progress report on our second annual Christmas Carol Contest.

A new leading carol has emerged, racking up 44 views the other day–44, by gum! But as a wise Tasmanian devil once said, “Where there’s 44, there must be more.” For the time being, those 44 views have set a record. But records are made to be broken!

The winner will get an autographed copy of Lee’s new Bell Mountain book, His Mercy Endureth Forever. It hasn’t been published yet, but everything’s ready and it should be coming out soon.

Keep those Christmas hymn requests coming!


My Favorite ‘We Three Kings’

All right, Joshua, you talked me into it… This is my favorite rendition of We Three Kings, sung with gusto by actors Hugh Jackman, David Hobson, and Peter Cousen. I think this was originally part of an Australian TV Christmas special. My eyes tear up when I hear it–but those are tears of joy. What hath God wrought!


Byron’s Contest Update

HisMercy

G’day! Byron the Quokka here–and our Second Annual Christmas Carol Contest seems to be slowing down. So here’s my idea to pep it up!

The prize will be an autographed copy of Bell Mountain No. 12, His Mercy Endureth Forever. And if you want to find out if Ellayne and Dulayl get eaten by the giant hyena, you’re gonna need this book! It hasn’t been published yet, but it’s all ready to go and it should be coming out early next year.

The winner will be whoever requests the Christmas carol that gets the most views on the day it’s posted. So far the leader has 22 views. Do I hear 25? Thirty? And one thing we don’t have to worry about is running out of Christmas carols!

Here on Rottnest Island, we have no hyenas of any kind, not even little ones. All the quokkas agree that’s a good thing. And this is Byron, signing off…

How’s the Carol Contest Going?

See the source image

G’day! Byron the Quokka here. We don’t get any snow on Rottnest Island: that picture’s me on our family vacation to New Jersey. Only chance I ever got to use my skis.

Anyhow, I’m here to report on the progress of our Second Annual Christmas Carol Contest. And the carol that got 24 views on Dec. 1 is still in the lead. No, I’m not going to tell you what it was, or who posted it. It’s sort of a blind taste test. I love those! Did you ever see the one where they’ve got people taste-testing cat food? Fantastic!

So let’s keep those carols coming, folks. I told Lee I could make this a tremendously successful contest and I won’t want to wind up looking like a doo-dah. It would be very bad for my prestige!


‘Our Immoral and Unrighteous Government’ (2014)

Image result for images of obama and kerry

The Climate Change Twins, 2014. Sort of like the Certs Twins, only infinitely more dangerous and costly.

When I posted this in 2014, Donald Trump had yet to become president (or even a serious candidate) and tear the curtain off the Deep State for everyone to see. And so a reader admonished me to “limit your crusade to religion and morality” and leave Bent Science alone.

https://leeduigon.com/2014/05/03/our-immoral-and-unrighteous-government/

The problem nowadays, though, is that you can’t separate crooked science from crooked government. The whole purpose of the Climate Change scam is to grow the government at the people’s expense.

I mean, really, it’s so flaming obvious. They subject us to all sorts of humiliating limitations on our freedom, grab the money that we worked for, and then, when nothing happens with the “climate,” they proudly proclaim, “See? We saved the planet, didn’t we?”

There’s no excuse for falling for such clumsy tricks.


Birthday Greetings to Ina!

G’day, mates! Break out those party hats and noisemakers, because today is Ina’s birthday! She lives in Scotland, so it’s a bit tricky for her to come to the party we’re throwing for her, here on Rottnest Island–but we’re totally sure she’s here in spirit.

Well, everybody, what’re you waiting for? Whoop it up!


What’s Your Favorite ‘Bell Mountain’ Book?

See the source image

I can’t help being curious about this–what’s your favorite Bell Mountain book? There are 11 of them in print so far, with Nos. 12 (His Mercy Endureth Forever) and 13 (The Wind from Heaven) on the way: eleven of them from which to choose.

And if you haven’t read any of them yet–well, Christmas is coming sooner than you think, and these books make great gifts, if I do say so myself.

But if you have read some or all of them, or even just one, which one do you like the most? I can’t even guess what you’re going to say. And don’t ask me which one is my favorite, because I’m the author and they’re all my babies.

Oh, fap! Now I’ve gone and tantalized myself. Now I really can’t wait to read your replies.
