365:122Jeanne Louise Calment was a French supercentenarian who had the longest confirmed human lifespan in history, living to the age of [b]122 [/b]years, 164 days.

Calment ascribed her longevity and relatively youthful appearance for her age to a diet rich in olive oil, and rubbed onto her skin, as well as a diet of port wine, and ate nearly one kilogram (2.2 lb) of chocolate every week. Calment reportedly remained mentally intact until her very end.

We raided Hotel Chocolat’s post-Easter sale and supplies arrived on Wednesday. These are Nutmeg Pralines. V good. Not sure if they will ensure longevity but you never know.

Seems like a plan? … Continue readingA Month in France: Nothing is Lost
