Happy Birthday!!!


I know that it is two days early, but I want to make sure that that I send my birthday shout out to Edna Parker who turns 115 this Sunday April 20th. Edna is the oldest person alive today and has been the oldest person since the death of Yone Minagawa in 2007. Edna is an American who lives in Indiana.

Jeanne Calment is the oldest person who has ever lived. She died in 1997 at age 122 years and 164 days. Interestingly enough, According to Wikipedia, Jeanne Calment smoked until she was 117, quit, and then picked up the habit again at 118 years old, stating: "Once you've lived as long as me, then you can tell me not to smoke."
