“A Miami woman approaching her 110th birthday said roast pork, lard cracklings and sweets are still big parts of her diet.

Gertrudis Balsinde, who is preparing to celebrate her 110th birthday Nov. 17, said her grandmother died at the age of 108, El Nuevo Herald reported Tuesday.”


When I hear a really old person say, “the secret to long life is watching my diet, abstaining from liquor, and going to bed before 9:00 pm, I want to gag. Who the hell wants to live a long life if you have to pay such a high price?

It’s better to eat, drink and be merry and die young, than to live like a monk and die at a ripe old age.

Gertrudis didn’t live like a nun, girlfriend is still munching on roast pork and sweets I don’t know what lard cracklings are, but they sound delicious!

Happy Birthday Gertrudis!
