I was looking for some good news…

And it seems there is some. The might be a vaccine for COVID 19, if everything goes well. I mean, we know that it’s for 90% of people, but we don’t know how long the immunity lasts, something tells me the tests need to go on for a few more months before they have answers to critical questions.

They also say there is another treatment available that can be given to people just turned positive, and who are expected to suffer badly from COVID, and that it will lessen it’s effects.

But, and there is always a but, it depends on who gets it first, and that seems to me to be who put up the most money. I doubt a small country like us would be able to match the bigger countries so I guess we’ll have to wait in line.

Good news on the vaccine, bad news on where we are on the globe.

I also just read an article of the last flight of a 747 Jumbo Jet. That plane change the face of flying for us, tucked away over 12,000 miles from anywhere, and I got to fly in a very new British Airways 747 many years ago and it was an amazing experience.

It’s sad that such a plane is no longer financially viable.

It seems airlines bottom lines are driving the planes we fly in these days, and it will also see the end of the Airbus A380. I’m glad I convinced my better half to fly in one when they were quite new, and it was an amazing experience that such a large aircraft could be so quiet and comfortable, even tucked away in the sardine can down back.

Looks like this is turning out to be bad news…

Which brings me to the event that no one wants to be reminded about, the fact Election Night on CNN didn’t run for the ‘Election Night’, it ran for over 4 days straight. Aside from saying the same stuff over and over about 200 times in 300 different ways, surely people could count faster. The only excitement was when new figures came in.

I wasn’t really interested in the outcome, just purely the numbers, until the networks (TV I’m assuming) called it for Biden. How could a media network call the winner of an election. Isn’t that the responsibility of the electoral bodies? And oddly enough, I was expecting civil war to break out in the streets of the states where there were ‘contentious’ issues.

Let’s hope for the ordinary family who just want to get on with their lives, not get COVID, and get back to work, it doesn’t.
