Wow! Congratulations to Eric and The Raspberries. Just one song can keep the royalties from a song going.

And just for that, you get the bonus of reading that the next "Star Wars' movie has already written in a part for William Shatner, who played as Captain Kirk, im the T.V. series. The new generation will meet the original generation of Trekkies.

And will there be a superfecta, which means four in a row, on another movie? Hmmm.

Plus, saturday night on T.V, September 27th, the 40th anniversary of Saturday Night Live will be hosted by Guardians Of The Galaxy actor, Chris Pratt. Maybe replay it on Youtube, later. Or, parts of the show, if they have it, there.

I'm in the Miami airport getting ready to catch my flight back to Panamá.  This morning I spent walking around Lake Okeechobee.

There are many aligators that hang out in and around Lake Okeechobee.  None ate me today.  I was glad.  Though I did hear something come out of one of the alligator;'s mouth as I approached the lake's shore and pondered whether I should proceed further toward where the alligators were.   I heard him say (as he salivated):  "James, PLEASE go all the way".  

Singing alligators. Weird.
