A long way to go to catch Methuselah but still!

The spry supercentenarian was born on November 29, 1899, making her the only person whose life has touched three centuries.
In a 2015 interview with the New York Times, Morano shared that she attributes her long life to eating three raw eggs a day she has since gone down to two eggs a day since she was in her teens (a doctor recommended it for anemia...)

Love It!!! She got divorced when I was born, 1938.


We have a bridge friend who is 101-1/2, she will be 102 in January if she makes it. She still goes to play bridge, walks with a spring and does better than me overall.

She got married at about age 74, first time, and he died not long after and she never remarried and her friends got her to give up driving at 99 as I recall.

She's got a hearing problem and says she as Fibro mostly in her arms.

She also eats about 1/4 pound of raw meat every day. That was my WTF? moment.

That AND two raw eggs?. Don't know if having to do that would lengthen one's life per se, but IMO it would sure make it seem longer.
