Wikipedia is keeping track of the old people. It's like the least desirable achievement ever; once you get there you're pretty much next. Great!
Of the ten oldest people ever, six are from the US. How did that happen? Of the current oldest alive people, though, Japan fares much better, as one might assume: fish and rice and sea veggies versus Big Macs, fries, and Twinkies.
Nellie Spencer was the oldest living person for a while there in 1981. She lived in New Jersey. I've been to New Jersey. Curious what motivated her to get up every day for that many years...in New Jersey!
Arugula Lady was at the farmer's market today! She had a lot of unusual little baggies of things and I took most of them. No idea what most of it is, I trust this person implicitly to feed me honestly with great integrity, commitment, and connection.
This is Japanese spinach. Isn't it just beautiful? Everything she grows is ...beautiful.
Having her on earth a little bit longer is very satisfying.
