The key to a long life: lots of cake

Edna Parker , 114, smiles as her great great grandson, Jackson Parker, cuts a cake while he is held by Don Parker in Shelbyville, Ind. Thursday, Aug. 16, 2007. The world's oldest person — 114-year-old Edna Parker — celebrated her feat of longevity Thursday by dining on a slice of her favorite type of cake after telling reporters that she can't believe she's lived to be so old. Parker, who was born in 1893, became the world's oldest person Monday when a Japanese woman four months older than her died. (AP Photo/Darron Cummings)
