Today’s face of the day Jessie Gallan is 109 and has a little secret that she is willing to share with us all. It is her secret for living so long.

I love how media always ask people who reach 100+ what their secret is because their answers are often fascinating and Jessie is no exception. Based on what she says I have not got many years left to look forward to so best I swing from the chandeliers while I still can!

The oldest woman in Scotland has revealed a surprising theory on the secret to a long and healthy life: lots of porridge and staying away from men.
Jessie Gallan celebrated her 109th birthday at a care home in Aberdeen on 2 January with a slice of cake.
“My secret to a long life has been staying away from men. They’re just more trouble than they’re worth,” she told the Daily Mail.
“I also made sure that I got plenty of exercise, eat a nice warm bowl of porridge every morning and have never gotten married.”
Ms Gallan was born in a two-room farm cottage in Aberdeenshire and left home at 13 to become a milkmaid.

The chirpy centenarian also revealed that a strong work ethic has helped her live a long and happy life.

“It’s amazing to see how completely different the world is now from the one I grew up in,” she added.

A 127-year-old Mexican woman, believed to be the world’s oldest person, recently said her love of chocolate is the key to her longevity.

Phew, thank goodness for the Mexican woman, there is hope for me yet.

Personally I prefer a nice warm armful of man every morning and staying away from porridge

Porridge, the secret to a long life?
