    Ipe, congratulations on having a revered last name. The feast of El Senor Nazareno de Quiapo is celebrated by all Catholic Filipinos wherever they are. Strangely coinciding with the feast is the wide media coverage, caused by You Tube, of Ted Williams’ story. Williams’ countenance reminds me of Diomedes Maturan. Both men own “golden voices”, one in radio announcing, the other in song. In his heyday, Diomedes has been claimed by his dearest fans to have been conceived after the Black Nazarene. I do not know if I should wonder further or laugh the notion off. What I’m sure of is I thank you Ipe for your contributions to Toto’s amazing blog.

    Happy Birthday Toto. I hope I am not late with my greeting, considering our geographical time difference. I sent an earlier message to you through Paz.

    Congrats on such great numbers and Happy New Year!

    However, how could Feb 27 with ONLY TWO views be considered the “busiest”? When did the 369,998 hits occur? I mean divided by 351 days, that would still average over 1,000+ hits/views a day? The numbers don’t add up.
