All tag results for 'oldest'
Kate Middleton, Duchess of Cambridge, got to meet the oldest Olympic torch bearer.
Her name is Diana Gould and she is 100-years-old!
Diana is going to carry the Olympic flame through the borough of Barnet.
She runs three exercise classes a week in the retirement home where she lives too!
So carrying the torch shouldn't be a problem at all.
Kate will be heavily involved in the summer games as she is the Olympic ambassador for Great Britain's athletes.
We couldn't think of a better ambassador!

Grocery shopping is a necessary evil. Not only are you trying to eat healthier, but it becomes so expensive.
Well here are 5 tips to take a chunk out of how much you're spending without really sacrificing anything:
Shop Freezer and Bulk Sections
Freezing vegetables and fruits while they're in season means that they're not losing any of their nutrients, and they last longer. Limit your spending on fresh meats and produce for special instances, and you can save so much more!
For bulk, make sure you're stocking up on stuff that don't spoil — like rice and beans!
Speaking of beans…
Give Beans A Chance for Protein
Try replacing some of the meat you usually eat with delicious beans! They cost less, give you the same amount of protein. Plus the less meat you eat (though, probably don't cut it all out), the healthier you'll be — less healthcare bills!
There is kind of a stigma against coupons, and sometimes people look down on using them. This shouldn't be so, as they could save you a serious chunk.
You don't need to be a pro at it, just do it casually to save here and there!
If you can't see the majority of the back of your fridge, you have too much food in it. Chances are you're buying way too much, and you're wasting a whole lot of it.
Stack Oldest to Newest
Put the older things you have to eat in the front of the fridge, and the newer things in the back. That way you're finishing things before they go bad — and you'll cut that wasting down in no time!!
Get started, guys! Just think what you could do with all that money you saved!
You could buy that boat! Or turn it all into dollar coins and keep some in a pouch on your person like a pirate!

David Beckham has been a patient father and all of it has paid off!
After a few weeks of waiting, it looks like the proud pop will finally be able to feed his newest family addition: Harper!
“It’s so important that they have that mother-daughter bond and breastfeeding, I think, is really an incredible thing. We’re in the process of putting it in bottles now, so that means I get to feed her — which has been amazing.”
He also believes strongly in a proper upbringing, and has even gotten some new ink in honor of baby Harper!
It’s just the way [Victoria and I] were brought up as kids; it’s the way we are bringing our kids up,” he says. “We make sure that the most important thing to us is our family and we’re all grounded. No matter what goes on around us, no matter what situation it is, we come together as a family and we deal with it.”
Reaffirming his dedication as a dad, Beckham is sporting some new ink these days, which only adds to his collection of tattoos.
“Obviously it’s a special one because it’s my daughter’s name,” he explains. “My first tattoo is my oldest son Brooklyn … I have all my sons’ names on me. I have my wife’s name … and I have a picture of my wife.”
Those are all great reasons for tats!
We really do get the impression that you love being a dad, David, and it's wonderful to see! And now you get a whole different experience with a little girl!
Good luck, hope all is well!

Our jaws hit the floor when we read this.
Gladys Burrill was confirmed by the Guinness World Records as the oldest person to ever complete a marathon.
The 92-year-old walked and jogged her way through the 26.2 miles in Hawaii to finish the race in just under 10 hours.
Gladys’ advice on living a long life?
"Just get out there and walk or run. I like walking because you can stop and smell the roses, but it's a rarity that I stop."
OMG! She’s adorable and super healthy and inspiring! Love it!

Wow! This woman is so inspiring.
Ida Keeling, a 95-year-old Bronx native, is the oldest sprinter in the world!
That's not the only record she's broken either.
In fact, she's been breaking records since she started running at the age of 67.
The 4-foot-6 and 83 lbs senior citizen set a world record at a track meet in Manhattan last week, as the oldest woman to run 60 meters in 29.86 seconds!
She proves that age don't mean a thang and that living a healthier life not only leads to a longer life, but a happier life, explaining:
"I feel younger now than when I was in my 30s and 40s."
Check out her story above and use that inspiration to get out and get active!
We hope Ida continues to dominate as the oldest sprinter on the track and wish her the best of luck in future races.
Eunice Sanborn, a Jacksonville native and the world’s oldest person, died at 6 AM on Monday at the age of 115.
Her adopted son and caretaker, David French, said that she passed peacefully:
“The Lord just called her home. He had been using her as a powerful witness for 115 years. It was a very peaceful death. She was not uncomfortable.”
She lived to see the turn of two centuries — what a life!
