    Caught this one this morning, but wish that NPR's feeds from BBC Radio had caught this. Either way, if I make it that long, I hope to have this, with relatives and as much revelry and fanfare (though I wouldn't deserve it :oops: ). Enjoy!

    Video from the Beeb was made as well. Enjoy.

    My wife's aunt is 104 and still going strong. Must be all that good, clean Utah air.

    Man, she's got a sharp mind. I can only hope and pray that when I get older I'm as vibrantly minded as she is. Got to keep reading!

    If he is that old and has too many girlfriends, he definitely can be called a Player In a Management Profession. :p

    One of the sad things about growing too old - you lose all your friends/family but this is a great story! To many more years for her.
