The Mandalorian Spaghetti-Space-Western
The Mandalorian Spaghetti-Space-Western. My wife and I signed up for one month of Disney+ to first watch the Star Wars Lego Christmas Special. It was for the younger crowd to say the least. We decided to see why The Mandalorian is so popular.
Jon Favreau writer and director
Jon Favreau directed the Iron Man films while also acting as tony Stark’s head of security Happy Hogan. He is the creator, writer and producer of The Mandalorian. If you find yourself laughing at the antics of baby yoda or the situations in the show Jon Favreau is the reason.
Channeling Clint Eastwood
Pedro Pascal, The Mandalorian, is really Clint Eastwood’s character from his days in spaghetti westerns. Imagine Pedro Pascal wearing western clothes riding a horse instead of a speeder. In episode 10 when the mandalorian slows his speeder to slowly ride into the one horse town the parallels are not only striking but humorous. In some episodes including #10, Pascal not only sounds like Eastwood but has the same vocal cadence. All The Mandalorian needs is a cigar to complete the character.
The Child aka Baby Yoda
Okay. the Mandalorian needs a plot device to move the story along. The child is that device. It could have been anything from jewels, gold or even a dog but the genius is the child has a will of its own. Lets not forget that the child has telekinesis abilities. Now we have a reason for the Mandalorian to travel from planet to planet. He is now responsible for return the child to his own kind while looking for his brother mandalorians.
Let’s see where the show goes
Shows like the Mandalorian are not new. From the early days of television having the protagonist travel from place to place has been a signature element. This is especially true in science fiction. Think of Star Trek among many others. The Mandalorian will have to change to survive more than a few seasons. In the meantime watching baby yoda is worth the price of admission at least for now.

Yesterday the NBC national news ran a segment on the expected problems with holiday shipping. They specifically showed Fedex but the same issues will affect all package deliveries. The package delivery companies are already working at peak levels due to Covid-19. In addition to the already high levels of shipping from people buying online the Covid-19 vaccine will be transported by Fedex and others. I fully expect the vaccine shipments to take precedence over all other shipments. Your shipments may be delayed until after Christmas.
Covid-19 affecting shipments to all businesses
Add to the issues above many businesses have not received the raw materials or piece parts from their overseas partners. This is causing a delay in manufacturing along with a delay when these products will be available for purchase. When these products do become available the transportation system may be unable to deliver in two days.
What to do for the holidays
The best solution is to buy as early as possible and ship as early as possible. I know that may take some of the fun out of the holidays. It is either being early or dealing with the disappoint of arriving late. I would rather receive a gift early when the expectation level is high then a week after.

Pfizer Covid Vaccine Works
Pfizer Covid Vaccine Works. According to data released by the company this morning their Covid-19 vaccine is 90% effective. That is great news if the announcement is accurate. As is always the case the devil is in the details. Which age group does the 90% effectiveness pertain.
Who will receive the vaccine first
There are several groups that have been recognized as being at the front of the line when a vaccine becomes available. The federal government under the present administration has said that the vulnerable populations in nursing homes and extended care facilities will be one of the first group to be vaccinated. The other groups that will receive the vaccine are hospital staff, the military, police, fire and other first responders. The rest of us will be offered the vaccination after those first groups.
Twice the fun
The Pfizer vaccine will be given in two shots. The first shot will be followed by the second shot 21 days later. This means Pfizer will produce 600 million doses to vaccinate the population of the United States. It is unlikely that one company alone will be able to provide that many doses. Which is why there are multiple companies working on a vaccine. Not everyone is going to receive the same vaccine. This is normal. One vaccine may be better suited to children while another may be better for adults over 60.
Immunity is what counts
A vaccine is the first step to stopping the virus from spreading. The vaccine will help the body kill the virus making transmission impossible. When between 70% to 90% of the world population has some sort of immunity the virus will stop being a threat. This does not mean the virus will go away. The virus can linger in people and animals waiting for the momentary lapse in judgement that will allow it to spread once again. Just like Polio or the measles virus the Covid-19 virus has not gone away even with a vaccine. Only through constant vigilance and regular vaccinations can the human race keep the viruses and other microbes at bay from causing death and misery.
