Really, really old—like 100!—physically robust & with all faculties intact? The island where people forget to die.

A lost Elmo doll enjoys a great vacation—& is then returned to its very very happy owner.

How to write a novel by someone who does it very successfully. Tim Lott.

Have a good weekend! Have a good time! Live long & live well!

  1. Fascinating about the Ikarians. Wine for breakfast and lots of naps? Is that the secret to longevity?

    1. Also fascinating that Samos (a nearby island) is almost the same but more developed—the longevity stats there are not at all similar.

      I also wonder if there's some genetic something going on. I would think on a small island like Ikaria there's lots of intermarriages. Maybe healthy longevity is an upside.

      Anyway, a fascinating article.
