Britain's two oldest men are marking their 111th birthdays. Alf Smith, from St Madoes, Perthshire, and Bob Weighton, from Alton, Hampshire, were both born on 29 March 1908. Personally and with a reasonable standard of health I would love to live as long as these two.

All depends on health and fitness. How I shall be in another 35 years is impossible to predict but I do have a couple of antecedents who have reached the 100 mark. Only time will tell.

If I wake up tomorrow, I shall be happy. If I don't, who knows!

As far as life let's me live with good health, that's my limit.

No, I wouldn't.

No, I wouldn't.

If you were that age, FE, and your mind was still as sharp as when you were sixty, had a laptop tied to your zimmer frame with a mouse pad constructed to it, you would certainly be still moderating this site.

On the other hand if the mind goes then I would certainly agree with you.
