This will make you smile!

Would you like to live to be 111 years old?  This woman may have found the secret to long life and happiness as the same time!

111-year-old Dorothy Peel keeps the nurses at the England home she lives in on their feet by demanding to choose her own outfits, and drink her daily serving of sherry.

It’s that sherry that Dorothy attributes to her long life. She says indulging in things that make you happy is a good thing.

For Dorothy that was 20 cigarettes a day, a half a pint of sherry in the morning, a gin and tonic for lunch, and whiskey and ginger at night. She quit smoking at 103 and cut down on the drinking a bit because of her doctor’s warnings.

She still has a little sherry and craves pink champagne every once in a while.
