Secret to a l-o-n-g happy life

Beatrice Wong of Kailua, Hawaii, recently went to a restaurant with friends to celebrate her 105th birthday. Born in 1913, her dad died when she was three, so she and her siblings were raised by their mom. In 1936 she married Henry Wong and they raised four children. Henry died 42 years ago.

Her four children call her Popo, as do her 13 grandchildren, 22 great-grandchildren and three great-great-grandchildren. She's still very active, doing word puzzles, watching game shows on TV and reading the newspaper. Asked how she lived so long, she said she tries to "treat everyone equally and never say anything bad about people," and then added, "Oh, shut my mouth and stay out of trouble."
