All the boys were grown up and done for by this time; so it is scarcely worth while saying anything more about them. You may see the twins and Nibs and Curly any day going to an office, each carrying a little bag and an umbrella. Michael is an engine driver.

GM Kenny Williams tipped his cap to the Twins on their latest division title. The only thing we've beaten them in the last few years, ... is the game of talking.
Continuation of the progress made last year both on and off the park is our aim. I am delighted we have safely qualified for the group stage of the Champions League. Participation in the UEFA Cup group stage last season was welcome, but does not provide the club with the same level of income as the Champions League can guarantee. Regular and prolonged European football is a key target for everyone at the club, as this has the twin impact of improving financial performance and meeting the sporting aspirations we have for our club.

He didn't apply here for college, but I'm sure he could've come here as well. We're pretty close, but sometimes it's nice to get away. When you're a twin it kind of defines you as a person. It's been a good experience for the both of us to see what it's like not to be a twin for a while.
When the planes hit the Twin Towers, as far as I know, none of the phone calls from the people on board were messages of hate or revenge- they were all messages of love

Twelve years ago me and Allanah became really sick of writing pop songs, ... Eventually we dug a grave for the Thompson Twins, pushed them in there, and then moved to New Zealand. Before that I'd lived for a long time in south London where reggae was the music of the streets around me. You'd hear it booming out of people's windows and shops, and you could buy great old reggae singles for 50p (NZ1.30) in second hand shops. I'd always loved that sound, so soon after we got here I started making electronic dub records with my mate Rakai Karaitiana as International Observer.
We took a lot of criticism for drafting Hakeem when we already had Ralph. But we were excited about the Twin Towers concept. We were pretty sure it could work, and once it did, everybody around the league tried to copy it.
