Twins

I'm fascinated by subjects about twins. There's a reason. I'm a twin - a fraternal twin. Here I am with my brother many, many years ago.

Twin: one of two children born at the same time.

Seven different types of twins:
  • Mirror Image twins. ...
  • 2) Half-Identical twins. ...
  • 3) Mixed Chromosome twins. ...
  • 4) Superfetation. ...
  • 5) Superfecundation. ...
  • 6) Fraternal twins. ...
  • 7) Identical twins.
Mirror Image twins: monozygotic;  formed from a single fertilized egg. When the split occurs late - more than a week after conception - the twins can develop reverse asymmetric features.

Half-Identical twins: 
a single maternal contribution to the twins but they had a mixture of two paternal contributions; two sperm involved but possibly only one egg.

Mixed Chromosome twins: This occurs if two separate sperms fertilize two separate eggs which then fuse, producing individuals with different sets of chromosomes. Some have been identified to have more than one distinct red blood cell type and individuals who are both XX and XY (the sex chromosomes – XX being female and XY being male.) It is very rare, and less than 25 cases have been identified as yet.

Superfetation twinsthe occurrence of a second conception during pregnancy, giving rise to embryos of different ages in the uterus.

Superfecundation twins: twins with a different father.

Fraternal twins
either of a pair of twins who, as a result of developing from separate fertilized ova, are genetically distinct and not necessarily of the same sex or more similar in appearance than other siblings.

Identical twins: either of a pair of twins who, as a result of developing from a single fertilized ovum, are alike in all genetic characteristics (including sex) and typically very similar in appearance.

Interesting, don't you think?

One of My Favorite Things a Guinea Pig

I've wanted to get a guinea pig for awhile, but I'm determined not to have any more pets. My son and my wife surprised me with this a couple years ago and it sits on my desk in a bed my son made for it. I love looking at it.

Isn't it adorable? And it looks so real.

It's the small things that bring us joy, don't you think?

Love Honor and Respect to all.

My Favorite Apps

Microsoft Word Doc and I don't often get along, so I was a little leery about downloading one of their free apps.

I downloaded the app for Free Books - 23,469 Classics and I absolutely love it. It was easy to install and simple to use. Once the app is installed, I could start downloading books. I'm currently reading 'The Time Machine' by HG Wells.

I rated this app 5 stars.

If you love to read, you've got to give it a try.

Love, Honor, and Respect to all.

Humor Mark Twain

Mark Twain is one of my favorite humorists. Here are a few of my favorite quotes of his:

"I don't like to commit myself about heaven and hell. You see, I have friends in both places."

"Last week, I stated this woman was the ugliest woman I had ever seen.  I have since been visited by her sister and now wish to withdraw that statement."

"I didn't attend the funeral, but I sent a nice letter saying I approved of it."

"I was born modest but it didn't last."

"Go to heaven for the climate; hell for the company."

Love, Honor, and Respect to all.
