Mbah Gotho has outlived all 10 of his siblings, his four wives, the last of whom died 28 years ago, and all of his children. I can imagine his grandchildren are getting on a bit as well.

 Staff at the Indonesian records office have confirmed Mr Gotho’s date of birth as December 31 1870, which to put it into context, was the year novelist Charles Dickens died and around half-way into the reign of Queen Victoria.

I'm someone also pounding the Path, just like you.. I'm retired, going into Old Age and loving my life. I'm hoping to remain happy and well for as long as possible. Old Age is not SO bad - yet!

Please do comment! That's part of the fun...
