How to live to 104

I was reading the typical ‘it’s a New Year, here are the things you should resolve to do’ article’s last night when I came across this article which oddly mentions all of the supplements that you should NOT take as they are bad for your cardiovascular health.  I found it to be quite interesting, especially considering all of the recent celebrity deaths due to heart attacks so I thought I would share the link with you.  Just click on the image below.

Yesterday I decided at the very last minute to make Chile Con Carne for dinner but then I realized that I didn’t have all of the things I needed to make it so I had to run to the Wal-Mart and while I was there I decided to go ahead and pick up some vitamins and supplements.

There was an older lady in the aisle and she was looking over all of the bottles and reading over everything and then she looked over at me and she asked me if I thought she should start taking a multi vitamin.



So, I politely told her that multi vitamins were a good thing but that really she should probably talk to her doctor about it.  I told her she should ask him if he thought it was a good idea.

She said she did mention it way back when and he did tell her it was a good idea when she was around 80 but that was about 20 years ago and she didn’t really feel like she needed them until she hit 101, and even then, only occasionally.



She didn’t look a day over 70 with a mind to match.  I kid you not.

I want whatever she’s having, times two!  She was incredible and in case you’re wondering, she just turned 104.  I asked her what her secret was and she told me that she didn’t have one.  There was no secret.  She said the only advice she could give me was to keep your stress at a minimum, drink lots of water, have lots of sex, laugh a lot, and drink a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar every day.

Is everybody on that apple cider vinegar train?  Because I feel like it used to be big a few years ago and then it leveled off and then lately it’s been a big deal again.  Maybe I should get on board but I just don’t know if I could handle the taste.  Blech!

Have you ever tried apple cider vinegar strictly for health benefits?

What about sex, ever had sex strictly for the health benefits?

  1. I have tried the apple cider vinegar but it upset my stomach so I ditched it. I don’t normally get headaches but every once in awhile I will get one that nothing will take care of…except having an O. So I tell Rick “I have a splitting headache we need to have sex”. The first time he was like “really?” But now he knows…it works for me! I do also request even when I don’t have a headache, cuz let’s be honest … more enjoyable without a headache and is it ever really a bad idea to have more sex?!? I can honestly say I have never regretted that. LOL.

    • Oh dear Lord! If sex worked for my migraines, MacGyver would be the happiest, (if not the most exhausted), man in the entire world! LOL He’d probably have to have plastic surgery to remove the smile from his face, bwahahaha
