Today marks the 115th birthday of the World's oldest woman, Misao Okawa. Last week she was given a plaque for being the world's oldest by the Guinness Book of Records.
I can't say she looks particularly happy at the award, but then if you were born in 1898, you're probably pretty ticked off with everything by now. Anyway today is her birthday and I hope she enjoys it. There is a Japanese man who is about forty days older than her. And there are 54,000 people in Japan who are over the age of 100. Amazing!
