And it seems there is some. There is now several vaccines for COVID 19, and, if everything goes well we might yet get back to a semblance of normality. 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.
Oh, and there is one other small thing, it just might kill you. Yes, one so far has some interesting if not deadly side effects. Not for all, just some, randomly, and I’m willing to bet I’d be in that random group.
I also just read an article of the last flight of a 747 Jumbo Jet. Well almost. Some airlines are bringing them back for a short period to cope with demand now that the skies are reopening. 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, that a certain person cannot get over the fact he lost an election. Aside from saying the same stuff over and over about 200 times in 300 different ways, surely they could just let it go. I thought only secrets went to the death, not the recitation of the so called ‘big lie’.
Still, then there wouldn’t be any other news, other than Covid, so I suppose we might as well perpetuate it. I wonder, if Biden loses in 2024 he will take the same route and say it was rigged, or stolen, or both. Maybe if it can be proved Trump stole the 2016 election, and Biden stole the 2020 election, maybe they can call it a draw and get on with doing something constructive.
