arduino timer

I was trying to make a bomb timer that will display the current time left. basicly I want to set a timer value at like 10 in this example and as long as it is above 0 it will display current time left on the parallax serial lcd and decriment one from the counter and wait a second. here is my code so far. it just turns the lcd on and that it. no text on lcd. is there something wrong in my loop?

thanks for your help
