Avoid men and eat mush is the secret to longevity, at least according to a 109-year old Scottish lady.
|From today’s New York Times: Oats have been a staple of what is now Scotland since the Roman Empire. A village in the Scottish Highlands even hosts a global porridge-making competition, where the Golden Spurtle is the top prize.
|The former oldest living woman in Scotland swore by the dish. Before her death in 2015 at age 109, Jessie Gallan revealed her secret to longevity.
|“A nice warm bowl of porridge every morning,” she said, and “staying away from men.”

Mercy me–“Mercy Street” on PBS is truly awful. I started watching out of boredom and continue to hope (obviously against all odds) that this sorry mess of a Civil War tale will improve.

A completely lackluster production.
