AND you think you are old

Leave a comment


Received this in an email from a friend



Jeanne Louise Calment had the longest confirmed human Lifespan on record: 122 years and 164 days.

It seems that fate strongly approved of the way Madam Calment lived her life.
Jeanne was born in Arles, France, on 21st February 1875.

When the Eiffel Tower was built, she was 14 years old.

It was at this time that she met Vincent van Gogh.

’He was dirty, badly dressed and disagreeable’ she recalled in an interview given in 1988.
When she was 85, she took up fencing, and she was still riding on her bike when she reached 100.

When Jeanne was 114, she starred in a film about her life;

At 115 she had an operation on her hip, and at 117 she gave up smoking (having started at the age of 21 in 1896).

Apparently, she didn’t give up for health reasons,

But because she didn’t like having to ask someone to help her light a cigarette once she’d becoming almost blind.
In 1965, Jeanne was 90 years old and had no heirs.

She signed a deal to sell her apartment to a 47-year-old lawyer called André-François Raffray.

He agreed to pay her a monthly sum of 2,500 francs on the condition that he would inherit her apartment after she died.

However, Raffray not only ended up paying Jeanne for 30 years, but died before she did at the age of 77.

His widow was legally obliged to continue paying Madam Calment.
Until the end of her days, Jeanne retained sharp mental faculties.

When she was asked on her 120th birthday what kind of future she expected to have, she replied: ’a very short one.’

Quotes and rules of life from Jeanne Calment:

  • ’Being young is a state of mind, it doesn’t depend on one’s body.  I’m actually still a young girl, it’s just that I haven’t looked so good for the past 70 years.’ 
  • ’I’ve only got one wrinkle, and I’m sitting on it.’ 
  • ’All babies are beautiful.’ 
  • ’I’ve been forgotten by our good lord.’ 
  • ’I’m in love with wine.’ 
  • ’Always keep your smile. That’s how I explain my long life.’ 
  • ’If you can’t change something, don’t worry about it.’ 
  • ’I have a huge desire to live and a big appetite, especially for sweets.’ 
  • ’I never wear mascara; I laugh until I cry too often.’ 
  • ’I see badly, I hear badly, and I feel bad, but everything’s fine.’ 
  • ’I think I will die of laughter.’ 
  • ’I have legs of iron, but to tell you the truth, they’re starting to rust and buckle a bit.’ 
  • ’I took pleasure when I could. I acted clearly and morally and without regret. I’m very lucky.’ 

At the end of one interview, in response to a journalist who said he hoped they would meet again the following year:

She told him, ’Why not? You’re not that old, you’ll still be here.’






Airbnb Sues Over New Law Regulating New York Rentals

Hours after Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo of New York signed a bill that would impose steep fines on Airbnb hosts who break local housing regulations, Airbnb filed a federal lawsuit contending the new law would cause it “irreparable harm.”

The heightened battle in New York follows lawsuits that Airbnb has filed against its hometown San Francisco and in Santa Monica, Calif., which have both moved to fine the company for illegal listings.

The company, which operates in a regulatory gray area around the globe, is also fighting tough battles in Amsterdam and Barcelona, Spain, which penalizes hosts who list illegal rentals, and in Berlin, which has banned most short-term rentals.

Jared Foran, an orthopedic surgeon in Denver, is a co-author of a new study called “Patient Perception of Physician Reimbursement in Elective Total Hip and Knee Arthroplasty” (PDF here). The authors surveyed 1,200 patients to see how much they thought orthopedic surgeons should make and what Medicare actually pays for a hip or knee replacement.

The Underbelly of America

Leave a comment



The underbelly of America has been exposed during this election process and it is ugly!  It is composed of immigrants who stole this country thru avarice and corruption.  These immigrants claim this country as exclusively theirs and are xenophobes, racist, misogynist who blame their situation on everyone but themselves.

Wake up before it is too late and you have started World War III and the apocalypse predicted by Hollywood comes true.

Love your brother as yourself and prosper!  Can’t we all just get along?

Aleppo Siege, Strikes Are ‘Crimes of Historic Proportions’: UN Rights Chief

The top United Nations human rights official said Friday that the siege and bombing of the Syrian city of Aleppo constituted “crimes of historic proportions.”

Zeid Ra’ad al-Hussein, a Jordanian prince and the current U.N. High Commissioner for Human Rights, referred to Aleppo as “a slaughterhouse.”

He added that the siege and bombardment of the city had caused heavy civilian casualties amounting to war crimes.

Zeid asked the 47-member U.N. Human Rights Council in Geneva to set aside “political disagreements” and to refer the situation to the prosecutor of the International Criminal Court (ICC).
