What weird or strange situation or event separates yours from somebody else's

Do you believe in ghosts

If Spring is late does that mean Summer will be too

Speaking of the Catholic religion, did you hear that a married deacon with children is going to be ordained as a priest?

I can believe that emptynester and that opens the door of what is learned behavior and innate personality characteristics too. I am just surprised there is so much abou tmy mother in my daughter, She is very lucky if it's attributed to genes.

I always find it interesting at family gatherings to see how the characteristics in my children, myself and dh are also found in many of the other relatives.

My sister's ex-boyfriend's mother became a nun.  After two marriages and two (three?) kids.  Seemed really odd to me at the time (I was 18?) but not so much now.

I see a lot of similarites between my DDs and my extended family.  They have not spent enough time together  for it to be something they mimic, the traits showed up while the family member were still alive so not something that came from the other side."&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/p&gt;&lt;p&gt;&lt;strong&gt;&lt;span&gt;I know, it can be quite odd. I used to think that couldn't happen, until I read the studies done on identical twins reared apart, and how they would come to interviews wearing identical jewelry and have odd little habits and preferences that were identical as well. &lt;/span&gt;&lt;/strong&gt;&lt;/p&gt;</blockquote>.  One of my colleague's husband 'a ws the lead researcher on a lot of those identical twin studies done in the 1980s and early 90s.  Unfortunately for his lasting reputation, a lot of his findings are being questioned as it's being shown that a lot of those amazing coincidences happen between pairs of random strangers, too.</p>

I also think studies have revealed that twins sense eachother's feelings, feel eachother's pain things like that.  That makes more sense to me than twins that happen to have the same fashion for clothing or jewlery.
