The World’s Oldest Conjoined Twins!

Ronnie and Donnie Galyon celebrated their 63rd birthday last October, making them the world’s oldest conjoined twins.

Joined at the waist and sharing all organs from the waist down, as kids they supported their family performing in circuses and sideshows. They’ve had their ups and downs and were expelled from school for being a distraction to the other pupils. They say it’s their belief in God which has kept them so optimistic.

Here’s a short video celebrating their lives to date:

My love of fashion and music led me - several decades ago - into working for some of Britain’s top-selling magazines, specialising in news, reviews, fiction, features, astrology and quizzes.

These days, as a journalist, writer and editor I write a wide variety of features, frivolous and serious. I work mainly for women's magazines and national newspapers and also enjoy writing for independent news outlets and websites - the sort that publish stories the mainstream media fail to report.
