She also quit smoking at 104. So basically you can smoke until you're 104, but as long as you quit then, you'll make it to 110.

I love how half of these interviews wind up with the little old lady or man citing lots of booze as the secret to health. It's probably just good genes and keeping yourself engaged with life (it's been pretty well shown that just sitting there bored out of your mind will speed up the end), but screw it, I'm not taking any chances.

a little sherry in the afternoon


Not the "afternoon delight" expected,but definitely the one preferred.

from Mark Twain:

"... As an example to others, and not that I care for moderation myself, it has always been my rule never to smoke when asleep, and never to refrain when awake."

"... Since forty I have been regular about going to bed and getting up-and that is one of the main things. I have made it a rule to go to bed when there wasn't anybody left to sit up with; and I have made it a rule to get up when I had to. "

"... As for drinking, I have no rule about that. When the others drink I like to help..."

"... I desire now to repeat and emphasize that maxim: We can't reach old age by another man's road."

And a joke:
A man of 110 was being interviewed, and he was asked to what he attributed his long life. He replied, " I never, ever disagree with anyone." The reporter said, "That can't be it." To which the old man replied, "Perhaps you're right."

Happy Birthday, Mrs. Peel!

FTA: [...] whiskey [...] whisky [...]

I wish they were more specific on the details. Now I'll have to drink every Scottish and every Irish single malt and blend I can get my hands on just to be sure. The stuff I put with ...

"I don't really know why I've lived this long, I wish my husband had lived as long as me.

"I think I've lived too long. It's just that nothing seems to kill me."


Dear God, that's depressing.

Also, Jeanne Calment smoked until she was 117, when she was nearly blind and too embarrassed to ask for a light.

it's called 'genetics'. Some people eat properly, exercise, don't smoke or drink and drop dead at 47. Others, like my neighbor, smoke cigars, eat crap, never exercise and live to be 84.

Quiet life, simple diet, consistent habits. That's what all these centenarian articles seem to have in common. It's not what they eat or imbibe, it's that they do it in the same comfortably moderated portions EVERY day.

"In the evening, I drink a small glass of ginger ale but it's a bit too gassy, so I have to put a bit of whisky in"

You know, you could just shake the bottle of ginger ale a bit before opening to reduce the carbonation, but your approach is cool too.

I first read that as no whisky after 7 pm -- and living longer isn't worth it.
