This day in history from:


We used our new LCD TV in the office to watch the big fight live on pay-per-view.

It's a very different experience watching it live and with minimal commercials. The whole thing just seems to flow better and the experience is exhilarating. That's the way to watch a fight, which may turn out to be Manny Pacquiao's greatest. He really showed class today and he beat the guy convincingly. Just look at how the guy fell down. He literally kissed the canvass.

What's funny is, we all jumped in excitement when Manny knocked David Diaz out and immediately got out celphones to text people of the result.

Those commercials, I think are bordering on vexatious. That may backfire on the advertisers, on sheer volume alone. There are even advertisements while the fight is in progress, occupying at least 1/3 of the screen. Good grief!

I know as I write this entry, the fight is not yet finished. It may come to a point where there may be a commercial for every punch the fighters will make. At that point, the sport will die a natural death, from suffocation.

Anyway, I look forward to the next pay-per-view. It was a good experience for me, not only watching the fight like that, but for the bonding session I had with my partners. That, I think, is the more important point of this decision of hours to get the fight live.

And all of these were happening while my kids were partying with the children's party of our associate's kid. So they had a bonding session of their own, as it turns out.

A good day today, indeed.

Side Prayers

Lord Jesus,
Teach me to be generous,
Teach me to serve You as You deserve
To give and not to count the cost,
To fight and not to heed the wounds,
To toil and not to seek for rest,
To labor and not to ask for reward,
except that of knowing
That I do Your Holy Will. Amen

May every word I speak be from Your Truth...
I ask come from Your Wisdom...
May every case I handle receive Your Guidance...
May every heart, every life I touch, feel Your Love.

And Jabez called on the God of Israel saying,
"Oh, that You would bless me indeed,
and enlarge my territory,
that Your Hand be with me,
that You would keep me from evil,
that I may not cause pain."

So God granted him what he requested.
