On January 2nd, 2015, Jesse Gallan of Aberdeen, Scotland, celebrated her 109th birthday. Jesse was born in a two room farm cottage where she lived with five sisters and one brother. At the age of 13 she left to become a milkmaid. Now at 109, Miss Gallan, lives in a care home where she maintains a healthy and active lifestyle. Her secret to a long life? Eating a bowl of porridge for breakfast, and never getting married. According to Jesse, men are, “just more trouble than they’re worth.”
