what struck me, from the TV pictures anyway, was how clear her skin looked.
wrinkled sure, but clear & good tone.
Maybe she's been having some of that SLA stuff!

Good on her - Long may she live and prosper hypocrite.gif

Reminds me of an old quote (R.A.Heinlein's Lazarus Long) "Old age is not an achievement. It merely takes a long time."

Check this out - REMARKABLE, AMAZING, WELL DONE.................

<h1 class="heading">Woman claims to be 130 years old, wants Guinness Record</h1>A WOMAN from Georgia is staking a claim to be the oldest person in the world, Sky News reported today. Officials say Antisa Khvichava, who lives in a remote mountain village, will be 130 on July 8.

The Georgian authorities have petitioned the Guinness Book of Records to include her as the oldest person.

"Antisa Khvichava was born in the 19th century, and she is amazing," said Giorgi Vashadze, head of Georgia's Civil Registry Agency.

"We have the necessary documents to prove it."

The authorities have Ms Khvichava's Soviet-era passport registration, which shows her date of birth, and her pension book issued in the 1960s.

Although she was born in 1880, the pensioner only retired in 1965.

She was shown on TV Monday - on International Women's Day - being congratulated by her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren, and enjoying a glass of wine.

The matriarch, a resident of the Tsalenjikhi region, remains in good health, according to reports, and still plays backgammon and drinks vodka.If Ms Khvichava is accepted for the Guinness Book of Records, she will take the title from a 114-year-old who lives in Japan.
