Researchers at Cambridge are saying that people (eventually) could turn the clock back by 30 years..


Any thoughts who would be first in the queue.. ?


Maybe Mick Jagger.. !

30 wouldn't be enough for poor old Mick I fear.

Something for voters to ponder. ..
The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results.

30 years younger? I'd take that - Veronica would still be with me (provided it worked for both of us)

I think many older people look younger than their parents and grandparents did at the same age. 
Its not how old you are, but how you are old. 💖

My parents had a damned sight harder life than I have so far which may go some way towards accounting for that.

I remember my grandparents always looking old and they seemed to be dressed in clothes that were old fashioned for the time. Didn't help the way they looked.
I haven't given into age, my hair though no longer Raven is still waist length and done in different styles. My clothes are comfy but fashionable, I try to keep exercising and I don't think I look anything like my age.

I agree.  Some had lives of hard toil.  My granny had seven kids, not a particularly large brood before WWI.  No wonder the women were tired out!

Very true - my mum was the eldest of eight children

My mum had lovely skin.. and always coloured her hair.. I remember  that she had some lippy.. and a bit of rouge...However the clothes of the day were dull and dark in colour..
Neighbours would talk over the fence/gate and I remember that most wore an apron and no make-up.. and many women wore a hat..


Raven..' I don't look anything like my age'..


I think we all believe that.. and see friends we grew up with as much older..
Someone once said to me.. 
'We don't see ourselves as others see us'.. Much truth in those words..

I am now older than any of my grandparents. They had very tough lives . One grandmother lost her husband when carrying the ninth child, Mum was No. 8. My other grandfather was a furnaceman in a glass works. Dad's mum made it to 65 , none of the others did.


I have always been intensely proud of them and wish they could have had a longer life, but they were happy and proud of their children and grandchildren.
The problem with being retired is that you never get a day off

I don't hear Alex saying a thing ...
Perhaps the Anti Aging face mask is cracking a bit.. :wink:

It's the final line from a Burns poem called To A Louse, Scrumpy.. 'O wad some pow'r the giftie gi' us, to see ourselves as others see us..'.Often quoted. :grin:
