Baby Yoda …. “💫 Mando being a Father to Bebeh Again 💫 …. “!!

~~April 9, 2020~~


Smiling as I watch another ‘episode’ of Baby Yoda … these scenes look familiar because I started watching the series on Disney+.

A very much needed respite from our current, collective reality!

This lifts my spirits.



The Child, colloquially known as “Baby Yoda” among fans and the media, is a character from the Star Wars Disney+ original television series The Mandalorian.

He is an infant member of the same unnamed alien species as the popular Star Wars character Yoda, with whom he shares a strong ability with the Force

Greatness of matter, space, power, virtue or beauty,

are all sublime.

For most of us, there is only the unattended moment, the moment in and out of time, the distraction fit, lost in a shaft of sunlight, the wild thyme unseen, or the winter lightning or the waterfall, or music heard so deeply That it is not heard at all, but you are the music while the music lasts.

IOTD …. “🤡 Images of the Day, Special, Stupid Edition …. ‘One-Glove DeSantis’ 🤡 …. “!!

~~April 9, 2020~~


Those of us who call Florida ‘place of residence’ are ‘lucky’ enough to call this FIDIOT governor. He’s a useless, sycophant MiniMe of the one who sits in the White House.

Subservient, obsequious, spineless, ineffective politician!



Ronald Dion DeSantis is an American attorney, naval officer, and Republican politician. He has served as the 46th governor of Florida since January 8, 2019, and he represented Florida’s 6th congressional district in Congress from 2013 to 2018. 


‘The Sound of a Pandemic’ …. “🎼 Maria and the Von Trapplings Know How to Deal with It! 🎼 …. “!!

~~April 9, 2020~~


Amidst all this scary stuff, dire numbers, worldwide concern and uncertainty, what can anyone do?

Make the best of it … and in the middle of the seriousness, have a tentative, temporary laugh.

The Sound of a Pandemic! Don’t worry, Maria and the Von Trapplings know how to deal with it!

A couple of quick points:

The song is not intended to be taken seriously – I made it to humour myself and am quite blown away at the following it’s got over such a short time. No, wine is not a cure for the virus. Neither is whinging or blobbing (real words.) No, they’re not good at social distancing in the video – it was released in 1965.

Arguments about the origin of the virus and racist remarks will be deleted. Wherever Patient 0 got it from, the song refers to the fact that major spread first started in Wuhan, something which literature from all sides acknowledges. This does not give license for anyone to think negatively about the region or play blame games. I will delete bigoted and racist comments about China or her people, America or her people, and anywhere in between.

Stay safe and in your bubbles – greetings from New Zealand.
