Delightful Lady, 106, Loves Her Some Pizza And Having A Good Time

By Robert Paul Reyes

"A Newfoundland, Canada, great-great-grandmother who just turned 106 said she has subsisted on unhealthy foods and `good times.`

Margaret Ellen Moores of Rushoon, who celebrated her birthday during the weekend, said God must want her to remain on Earth for a while longer.



Usually when a senior citizen, who has just reached a milestone birthday, is asked what`s her secret for living a long life, she will respond by saying, " I abstain from drugs and alcohol, and I never eat pork, fast food or sweets. At which the average person will think, "what`s the point of living a long life?"

Thank goodness for Margaret, she gives hope to regular folks who love eating pizza and having a good time. It`s good to know that not all centenarians are adverse to drinking whisky, and eating a pizza.

When people who are older than dirt invoke the Almighty, it`s to warn the youngsters that one must abide by the Ten Commandments if they also wish to live a long and healthy life.

I like Margaret`s philosophy, she said: God put me here I suppose, and that was it. Good old Margaret isn`t dogmatic about the existence of God, and her version of the Supreme Being lets her do just about anything she wants, including eating pizza.

Margaret, you are my idol! I wish I could mail you a pizza with a dozen toppings.
