When I first came across these amazing women I had to double take when I read they were all born in the 1800’s. It’s a mind-blowing thought. They have lived through every major event in modern history, two world wars, the cold war to name a few. The have witness the development of the plane, the invention of television, and more recently the age of the internet. To put it into a bit more perspective for you they have lived to see a whopping 20 presidents.
I can hear many of you asking yourselves ”whats the secret to their longevity?”, well they all seem to have the same simple answers, staying active, exercising regularly, getting enough sleep, eating healthy and eating things you like.
