MU Virginia surrounded by her lovely, uniformed Junior Artists on location in Jodphur, for Vanity Fair
Mulain read today about a World War I veteran who is now considered to be the oldest man alive! Henry Allingham was named the world's oldest man after the death of the Japanese record holder. Guinness World Records said 113-year-old Allingham, who was born in Clapham, south London, on June 6 1896, took over the mantle after Tomoji Tanabe died at his home in southern Japan earlier in the day. It is truly incredible to think he 'as lived in three different centuries, seen six British monarchs on the throne, and has five grandchildren, 12 great-grandchildren, 14 great-great grandchildren and one great-great-great grandchild! Phew - can you imagine my friends? He is also one of only two surviving British veterans of the 1914-18 conflict - the MU's always like a man in uniform.....oh la la.....
It seems in March he was awarded my country's Legion d'Honneur award and said heartfully...... "There will be no more wars, I hope. There will be one big nation." How we all wish for that Monsieur Allingham and good luck to you sir.
Mulain asked the mighty search engines of the net.....'oo is the oldest person alive?'....lots of answers came up, from all over the world claiming the title....a Gertrude from LA, a Cuban great-great grandmother born in 1890, lots of 113, 114, 115 year olds!!.....It does not matter, Mulain still thinks it is amazing for all of them.
Someone had written Barbara Bush.....meow.....a leetle cruel don't you think?
Congratulations Monsieur Allingham enjoy your mu-ment......Mulain is also feeling 113 today so off for a spot of Yoga to keep himself looking young and 'andsome and if you read this blog....any tips on living the long life would be greatly appreciated.
