Congratulations and farewell...

Congratulations to Hendrikje van Andel-Schipper for holding the title of the world's oldest person for the last year or so exclusively, though she's ranked up there within the top 5 for several years. Farewell is in order for the Dutch woman, however, since she died early this morning at the ripe old age of 115 years, 60 days. One of her best tips on how to live long, besides eating herring and drinking orange juice, is "breathing." Her death now leaves an American woman the oldest in the world at 115 years, 15 days.
