Hello all.
I'm fairly new to Sleuth and I thought I might share a little hobby of mine with you all. Here's something for that sad moment when the mysteries of the day are all done.

Thousands lay up gold within this house,
but no man made it.
Spears past counting guard this house,
but no man wards it.
What is it?

There are no Es in the paragraph, E being the most common letter in English.

The man has hiccups, the bartender scared them away by pulling a gun on him.

A woman had two sons who were born on the same hour of the same day of the same year. But they were not twins, and they were not adopted. How could this be so?

One day Kerry celebrated her birthday. Two days later her older twin brother, Terry, celebrated his birthday. How is this possible?

They were born just before and after midnight on the 28th of February? It its a leap year, they'll celebrate their birthdays on the 28th of February and 1st of March as usual, but it'll be officially two days apart!

Am I right in thinking that twins, in unusual circumstances, can be born up to three days apart anyway? I'm sure that would be a rather silly answer to the riddle, though : o )
