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! (Sometimes I feel like I'm just a bobble-head on the highway of life!)

I was addicted to the hokey pokey, but I turned myself around!

What a way to start the week!

Dear Readers:

Virgin Galactic's new spaceship has the enthusiastic endorsement of one of the world's greatest scientists, Stephan Hawking, who plans to fly on the vehicle one of these days.
Richard Branson and VSS UnityUnlike actor Harrison Ford and English soprano Sarah Brightman, Hawking did not attend the event. But Virgin Galactic played a four-minute-long recorded message from the physicist when it was timae to announce Unity's name. "We are entering a new space age, and I hope this will help to create a new unity. Space exploration has already been a great unifier — we seem able to cooperate between nations in space in a way we can only envy on Earth," Hawking said in the message. Hawking said in his recorded message that he has always dreamed of flying to space, but for most of his life he viewed that dream as unachievable. 
After hearing Hawking speak of his dream during a radio interview about eight years ago, however, Virgin Galactic founder Richard Branson called the scientist up and offered him a free seat on SpaceShipTwo, not realizing the the craft was not wheelchair accessible!!!!

Why  do men's clothes buttons on the right while women's clothes have buttons on the left?

BECAUSE:
When  buttons were invented, they were very expensive and worn primarily by the  rich. Since most people are right-handed, it is easier to push buttons on  the right through holes on the left.
Because wealthy women were  dressed by maids, dressmakers put the
buttons on the maid's  right!   And that's where women's buttons have
remained since.

Earth is just a word for DIRT! It’s not the name of our planet, which is properly called “Terra”!

249Also, since there are so many moons in the Solar System we should identify our moon by its correct name, which is: “Luna”!

Meanwhile, our sun is called Sol ….., so technically we are Terrans who reside in the Solarian System!

WORDS TO THE WISE!



A lady went grocery-shopping at a local mall and left her purse sitting in the children's seat of the cart while she reached something off a shelf... wait 'til you read the WHOLE story! Her wallet was stolen, and she reported it to the store personnel. After returning home, she received a phone call from the Mall Security to say that they had her wallet and that although there was no money in it, it did still hold her personal papers. She immediately went to pick up her wallet, only to be told by Mall Security that they had not called her. By the time she returned home again, her house had been broken into and burglarized. The thieves knew that by calling and saying they were Mall Security, they could lure her out of her house long enough for them to burglarize it.

Please, pass this along to your friends!!

Someone had their car broken into while they were at a football game. Their car was parked on the green which was adjacent to the football stadium and specially allotted to football fans. Things stolen from the car included a garage door remote control, some money and a GPS which had been prominently mounted on the dashboard. When the victims got home, they found that their house had been ransacked and just about everything worth anything had been stolen. The thieves had used the GPS to guide them to the house. They then used the garage remote control to open the garage door and gain entry to the house. The thieves knew the owners were at the football game, they knew what time the game was scheduled to finish and so they knew how much time they had to clean out the house. It would appear that they had brought a truck to empty the house of its contents.
Something to consider if you have a GPS - don't put your home address in it... Put a nearby address (like a store or gas station) so you can still find your way home if you need to, but no one else would know where you live if your GPS were stolen.

I never thought of this.......
This lady has now changed her habit of how she lists her names on her cell phone after her handbag was stolen. Her handbag, which contained her cell phone, credit card, wallet, etc., was stolen. 20 minutes later when she called her hubby, from a pay phone telling him what had happened, hubby says 'I received your text asking about our Pin number and I've replied a little while ago.' When they rushed down to the bank, the bank staff told them all the money was already withdrawn. The thief had actually used the stolen cell phone to text 'hubby' in the contact list and got hold of the pin number. Within 20 minutes he had withdrawn all the money from their bank account.
