Misao Okawa celebrates her 116th birthday.   Happy Birthday!

She was born in Osaka, Japan, in the year 1898, when Queen Victoria was still on the British throne, the Spanish American War was raging and Horatio Kitchener triumphed in the Battle of Omdurman.

Her advice is to eat three large meals a day and make sure you sleep eight hours a night.

(It's not often that you get to use large ordinal numbers.)
