Twin mothers in Ohio give birth the same day
Aiden and Donavyn didn’t wait until New Year’s Day to come screaming into the world, but the circumstances of their births still are pretty special: The babies were born about two hours apart to Ohio mothers who are identical twins.
The Akron Beacon Journal reports that the 19-year-old mothers — Aimee and Ashlee Nelson — weren’t raised to do things alike and did not plan the births to come at the same time. In fact, their due dates were about a week apart.
But Donavyn Scott Bratten was born just after noon on the last day of 2012. Aiden Lee Alan Dilts made his appearance about 2 p.m.
They were delivered by the same doctor at Summa Akron City Hospital.
Royal Mail to issue ‘Doctor Who’ stamps
The many characters in the science-fiction show “Doctor Who” will be zooming through time and space on the edge of letters in 2013.
Britain’s Royal Mail is marking the 50th anniversary of the popular show with a series of stamps featuring each of the 11 actors who have played the title role, known as the Doctor. Those featured include the most-recent actor, Matt Smith, as well as past Time Lords such as David Tennant and Christopher Eccleston.
The series also will include a miniature sheet that brings together Second Class stamps featuring the Doctor’s time- traveling machine and four of his iconic foes — a Dalek, an Ood, a Weeping Angel and a Cyberman.
The stamps honoring the cult British television program will be available starting at the end of March.
