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!

I do! (Don't I?)

Dear readers:

With the rate of divorce in North America approaching 50% it's no wonder people look for any type of excuse to justify why their marriage didn't work out!
Take tennis star Chris Evert, who spoke candidly about her marriage to Olympian Andy Mill, revealing that menopause played a part in their 2006 divorce. Although Evert, 61, didn’t go too far into the specifics during a Tuesday appearance on Lance Armstrong’s The Forward Podcast, she did hint that the hormonal changes associated with menopause had negative affects on her 18-year marriage.  “We had a rough couple of years, because I married Greg Norman who was Andy’s friend,” she said. “I don’t know, I was going through menopausal stuff that doesn’t get talked about enough – what women go through, you know, at 50ish.” (Evert and Norman ultimately split after just 15 months of marriage.)
Gee folks, I didn't know you had to give all sorts of technical reasons why your wedded bliss went down the toilet ...., I always thought that the reason my first marriage tanked was just plain stupidity on my part!

 Here's what happened on the second day of the Democratic convention: 
A whole bunch of people got together in an arena and then a bunch of them spoke, some sang, others preached and cried, and some of them even danced a little bit!

A couple of people sat off to the side and told us what it was all about, and then after three or four hours everybody had had enough, and they all went home!
 Meanwhile, a good time was had by all ......, except a few sore losers who didn't get their guy elected!

They are getting really nuts with commercials folks! I saw a video clip of some asinine thing Drumpf said and wanted to watch it, but an advertisement came on first and rather than the few seconds until you could "skip ad" it was a whole 60" commercial, which I watched for a total of seven seconds ....., because that's how long it took me to clue in to the fact that I would have had to watch the whole bloody thing!

Chief David Bald Eagle
Native American Chief David Bald Eagle, who appeared in the Oscar-winning 1990 film Dances With Wolves, has died aged 97.

The grandson of Chief White Bull, who fought in the Battle of the Little Bighorn in 1876, Bald Eagle appeared in more than 40 films.

We here in Canada had our own version of a famous Indian Chief (Other than Tecumseh) by the name of Chief Dan George,  who I had the pleasure of meeting on a few occasions.
ChiefDan George.jpgChief Dan George, OC (July 24, 1899 – September 23, 1981) was a chief of the Tsleil-Waututh Nation, a Coast Salish band whose Indian reserve is located on Burrard Inlet in the southeast area of the District of North Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. He was also an actor, poet and author; his best-known written work was "My Heart Soars".[1] As an actor, he is best remembered for portraying Old Lodge Skins opposite Dustin Hoffman in Little Big Man (1970), for which he was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor.
And then there was my all time favourite role he played, and the phrase he made famous.

This was it:
