Motherhood, insanity and everyday life.

Party On, Hendrikje!

Well, here it is, buried in the news, far below the devastation of Katrina...the secret to living a long, long life. Unfortunately, for some of us, it's too late. But if we listened to Dutchwoman Hendrikje van Andel-Schipper, the world's oldest person who died at the age of 115, we'd find out how to live well into a second century. Sure, she credited not smoking and not drinking too much alcohol. But those of us who can read between the lines, and have experience, know what really kept her alive.

Hendrikje van Andel-Schipper had no children. That, my friends, is why I will not live to 115...and why I definitely still drink alcohol. Cheers!
