But that’s just what Susie Kozisek did. The 53-year-old mother of four from Ventura, Calif., gave birth to her twin granddaughters, Hallee and Hadlee, this July.
Because her daughter, Ashley Larkin, can’t get pregnant — she suffers from pulmonary hypertension — Kozisek volunteered to be her gestational carrier.
(A gestational carrier carries a pregnancy for another woman. Both the eggs and sperm are harvested from the biological parents and brought together via in vitro fertilization. The embryo is then implanted in the carrier’s uterus.)
Forget what I said yesterday about getting even with honk-happy jerks who have a tendency to lean on the horn for every minor, or perceived, infraction!
After a bit of experimentation, I found out that the best solution to these terrible tooters is this…………………….! Every time I hear a car horn, whether it’s for me, some other clown, or just because someone is tooting their own horn for the hell of it……………………, I immediately honk back.

Long and loud!
imagesYou would be amazed at what a sense of satisfaction it gives you, boys and girls.
Honking back at someone for no reason at all, takes away stress like a blast from Gabriel’s Horn!
And just to add icing to the cake, when someone tailgates me …., even when I’m doing my normal 10 k over the limit, I immediately slow down to 20 k UNDER the limit, and then watch them swear at me in my rear view mirror………………, and try to guess what they are saying!

imagesCAUXDMDPElvis Presley’s wife and daughter were on hand  last night as fans from around the world made their annual pilgrimage to Graceland to pay their respects to the rock n’ roll icon with a solemn candlelight vigil on the eve of the 36th anniversary of his death. (sic)
Thousands of Presley fans carried lit candles as they walked silently through the Mediation Garden at Graceland, Presley’s longtime Memphis home.
(The garden is also the spot where his mother, father and grandmother are buried.)

Wreaths of flowers and pictures of Presley encircled the grave, while shadows cast by the glowing candles danced along the stone wall surrounding the garden.

(The Perspective naked News staff also managed to get this picture of Elvis helping fans with parking, prior to the vigil!)

But the most amazing fact about this proud creature is that it’s actually a dog, not a lion.
As Agence France-Presse reports, the hoax was exposed when the dog, a Tibetan mastiff, started barking.
Scientists have discovered the first new mammalian carnivore species in the Americas in 35 years, and it’s being met with a resounding “Awww!

imagesCAQYBHON(CNN‘s headline includes the word “cute,” while the AP goes with “adorable.”)
The New Species has been described as a ‘Cross Between Teddy Bear and a House Cat’.
It has been named ‘olinguito’ and it has taken more than a decade to identify the mammal, a discovery that scientists say is incredibly rare in the 21st Century.
(Meanwhile, the Perspective Research Department has found out that his neighbours just call him “George!”)

Her recent work investigates the impact of social robots on helping people of all ages to achieve personal goals that contribute to quality of life.
