Richard C Stanford: 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.


Damn. Thanks for pointing that out. My mind is now seriously blown.   :>o    :>)

SirEattonHogg: 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.


So you get a birthday letter from Elton John if you hit 100

She sat on her fat, Canadian bacon smelling ass biatching yet another year of her pitiful life away about how the boorish, war-mongering, planet hating, ignorance loving, drug crazed, socially impaired Americans are.

Singing the anthem of the Royal Canadian Kilted Yaksmen?

A round of bacon covered in maple syrup, a can of Molson, and swearing at the Leafs on TV?

The best part is I play in a metal outfit named Certain Death, and we're Canadians.

Of course, we're not very good.

I like the USA and Americans are as close as you can get to Canadians with some wacky ideas about guns and religion. Chill my man.

What ArkAngel typed way  above.  Key positions on keybd indicate 'jockey stick' coulda been tyop for 'hockey stick'. doctor wu typed 'Both'd work.' shorter distance above.
Was American to begin with, as Maritime Girl typed, almost surely Canadian now unless she didn't do Canadian Citizen class.
Thumz Up for Merle Barwis!

Danger Avoid Death: Brown Sugar Dupree: 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.


This is Canada, more like Zap Rowsdower, the Canadian Chuck Norris

My grandmother who will be 101 this year got a letter from the Queen when she turned 100.  I'm not sure if she really understood what it was.  She kept saying "I don't know an Elizabeth do I?"
