A belated happy birthday to Anna Stoehr, who turned 114 on October 15th. She’s been in the news lately because she had a slight glitch when she tried to get on Facebook–its age verification form stopped five years short of her birth year.

If you haven’t yet seen the news report, it’s well worth watching. The video below lacks the Minneapolis KARE 11 news anchors, if you’re interested in the full, unedited report, it can be found here. You might get the ad from the Minnesota roofing company with its amusingly double entendre slogan.
