Her secrets at age 115: Crispy bacon and sweets
The world's oldest person enjoys simple pleasures — like candy

Likes sweets and bacon
Not one to make a big deal of her stature, Baines enjoys life’s simple pleasures, such as extra crispy bacon and sweets, as well as daily viewings of “The Price Is Right” and “Jerry Springer.”  

Gertrude Baines, born April 6, 1894, in Shellman, Georgia, to parents who were born into slavery.

Last fall, she cast her vote for Barack Obama in the general election. The only other time she voted was back in 1960, for President John F. Kennedy.  

This is truly amazing!  How long would you like to live?
