Their are two famous Canadians in the news right now. One is a crooked politician who brings new meaning to the word 'dope'. He has continuously demonstrated that he is little more than a fat blowhard that goes around attacking defenseless women, completely void of morals, who should have left the office he has disgraced months ago. But enough about Ted Cruz, let's talk about Rob Ford.

Merle Barwis hasn't divulged any stunning secrets about what's helped her achieve such a great age, but once suggested it's important "to keep busy and mind your own business" in life.

Truer words were never spoken.  Enjoy your beer, ma'am.

I was going to say "with a beer, in a tree", but your version is much, much, much more tantalizing.

You just have to catch her at the right time.

In other words, there are bad times to catch her.

Unfortunately, if you wanna live a long, wealthy and full life, be an asshole. Good people die too early, but being an asshole will set you up for life.

And assholes die of old age, surrounded by 'loved ones'.

He's short. So short he needs a step to see over the podium. He's so short his height doesn't register on Google.

I heard if you are Canadian and you make it to 100, you get a congratulations birthday letter from the Queen.  I would assume its a form letter, but that's what I heard from my ex-gf's as she claimed her grandmother got such a letter.

Personally, I think if you make it to 110, you should be allowed to have the Queen drive you around for the day as your personal chauffeur.

Lives in my city, I need to go have a beer with her!

Liz is 87 or 88 years old and prolly hasn't done much driving. Not sure I'd want her as a chauffeur. High risk of ending up in a fruit stand in some market.

I wouldn't want that,  she's a real rager behind the wheel.

I like how they pixeled out the license plate. You know, so people can't look up where she lives.

When you are 100 years old, you can get a letter from the queen. At 90, you can get a letter from the Governor General. I believe in both cases someone has to apply to the government to receive these letters.

Wow. At over 110 she should get a letter from someone REALLY important, like Doctor Who.

Wow. Just think about that. She was born during the Victorian era. She lived through WWI, Spanish influenza, the roaring 20's, the depression, WWII, the post-war era, the Cold War era, Vietnam, the 70's, the 80's, the rise and fall of the Soviet Union, the rise of the Internet, 9/11, and the recession.
When she was born people still had first hand knowlage of the Civil War, electricity was a novelty, and Austria-Hungery, the Ottoman Empire, the Qing dynasty, and the Russian empire were still in existence. She's older than powered flight, regular radio broadcasts, TV, movies with sound, the model T, nuclear weapons, the theory of relativity, the polio vaccine, the transistor, the Internet, the Soviet Union, and who knows what. It's actually pretty amazing that there is a human alive that lived through all of that.
