Happy 115th birthday
Yes this is not a joke, Gertrude Baines is officially the oldest person in the world as recognised by the Guinness Book of World Records. Born in 1894 in Shellman, Georgia Ms Baines has celebrated her 115th birthday with a probably the Worlds biggest birthday cake. She even received a letter from the President of the United States Barack Obama, who she voted for "because he's for the coloured". She owes her long life to the lord, not smoking or drinking and not fooling around. Let’s hope I can stick to these rules and maybe I can live that long. Doubt it. Happy birthday Getrude.
