The officially known oldest woman in Scotland was Jessie Gallan. She was 109 years old. She has a secret to her longevity, even though many people would think it’s rather odd and funny.
According to her, the key to longevity is to eat porridge for breakfast every day and what’s the most important – to start avoiding men!
It seems like hiding away from men was the secret all along. According to Mrs. Gallan, men are great trouble! They aren’t even that worthy.
This amazing 109-year old woman has been independent throughout her whole life. She has started working very hard since she was a teenager. Mrs. Gallan left her home when was only 13 years old.
She had to find out how it was to earn for a living alone. She never married and worked hard throughout the whole life. She would have a holiday very rarely.
Before she was 100, she was in a nursing home. Everybody liked her and thought that she was an amazing lady!
Sadly, Mrs. Gallan passed away in Scotland peacefully after she gave the interview.
