Oldest Brit Says Booze Helps For Long, Healthy Life

According to the London Daily Mail, Grace Jones (not THAT Grace Jones) just celebrated her 112th birthday. Photos show her to be a lively, lovely senior lady, and she reveals her secret is a shot of whiskey every night.

I was never a drinker in my early years. As a 19-year-old-sailor in 1945 in the newly-liberated Philippines, guys from our advanced Navy unit in Manila went to a local bar to celebrate the end of World War 2. I drank several glasses of native brew, became unconscious and was driven back to our tent on floor of our truck.

I found out the next day that the home-made denatured alcohol booze was poisonous, resulting in the death of several other sailors. I didn’t drink for many years, but for the nearly 30 years since retirement one evening shot helps me sleep. Tonight I’ll raise my glass to you, Grace!
