Allan's Perspective is not recommended for the politically correct, or the overly religious! (Some people have opinions, and some have convictions ..., what we offer is Perspective!)

My wife is right, I am anal retentive...., so now I keep a can of WD-40 next to the toilet! (Sometimes I feel like I'm just a bobble-head on the highway of life!)

I WON!!!!!!

Well kids, with this week's LottoMax jackpot going for around 100 million smackers. I thought this article would be rather appropriate:
A Seattle couple has lucked out twice with the same lottery ticket. 
On May 14, they checked online and realized the Powerball ticket they bought in February and left in their car for months was actually worth $1 million. It was a second-chance prize for the Feb. 11th drawing, which had a jackpot of $350 million.
When they found out they had a winning ticket, they had to laugh because someone had broken into their car, swiping a pair of sunglasses but overlooking the winning ticket.
“Someone broke into our car a few weeks ago and stole a pair of sunglasses,” the couple told Lottery officials. “The stolen sunglasses were actually sitting atop the winning ticket. What a close call!”
PowerballThe couple told the Washington Lottery they had not thought about a second-chance prize and were totally surprised by their sudden fortune.
They were surprised but quick to make plans.
“Well, we already popped a bottle of champagne! We’re also planning a trip to Paris and Iceland for this year. Other than that, I think we’ll just take care of our house.”

Speaking of long shots:


A wife and husband from Michigan say they both got a hole-in-one in consecutive shots at the same hole.

Tony and Janet Blundy tell the Lansing State Journal (http://on.lsj.com/1AzT4iA ) that their aces came while golfing Sunday at Ledge Meadows Golf Course in Grand Ledge. The couple says Tony hit a hole-in-one first at the 16th hole, and Janet then equaled his feat.

(Right, and my uncle is Santa Claus!)

The field of top running apps is a crowded one. Many free and cheap options exist to track your mileage, log your workouts and act as in-pocket personal trainers. We've put them through their paces to separate the wheat from the chaff and the winners from the losers.
The result? MapMyRun (free; iOS, Android) crosses the finish line as the best all-around app for runners. For no cost, this app has lots of features and is easy to use.
MapMyRun's recording function tracks distance, time, pace and estimated calories burned. There's an in-app music option, with a convenient (and large) Play button on the run-recording screen. The app, which is owned by Under Armour, has a built-in social networking component and also lets you share your stats on Facebook and Twitter. The app includes a pedometer to track your activity all day long, and a workout log where you can manually enter exercises that a phone can't readily record. There's also a food diary, for keeping tallies of calories consumed and calories burned all in one place. You can also record weigh-ins and track water consumption under the app's Nutrition tab. The interface isn't particularly stylish, but navigation is simple.

Well folks, I like John Stewart, and I hate Donald Trump, so this gets two thumbs up right from the get-go:

Jon Stewart may be be leaving "The Daily Show" this summer, but he's not going out quietly. On Thursday night, Stewart reignited an ongoing feud with Donald Trump, or, as he calls him, "Fuckface von Clownstick."
Trump has been openly toying -- again -- with running for president, and said in a recent interview that he had a "foolproof" plan for defeating ISIS.
But Trump also said that he wasn't going to share it.
“Not because I don’t have a foolproof plan, I do. I have a foolproof plan that would work 100 percent, save thousands and thousands of lives, but I’m not going to tell you," Stewart said, while doing an impression of Trump. "I’m withholding it for now, because I am a tremendous asshole.”
Trump, who is active on Twitter, has yet to respond.
Stewart also shared some thoughts on other presidential wannabes, including Rick Santorum, George Pataki, Carly Fiorina, Lindsey Graham, Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders.
