Today May 21st 2014 would have been Dad's 100th Birthday the Ultimate Goal of this website, it all began the day in his early 90′s when he announced that “on my journey to 100, I will” and out he spouted all of his daily, monthly and yearly goals to reach 100.
I tried to engage him in the internet, but I am afraid I did not have much luck, he once said to me during the building of the site, in his mid nineties now, with a wry smile, that he knew “I know, I am not pulling my weight with this project, I’ll try harder,” and then he winked and laughed.
Unfortunately Dad ran out of steam in his 97th year, on his mission to reach 100 years of age, a centenarian, on January 21st of this year, with just 1215 days to his goal. But this site will forever be a testament to his will to inspire others to live long and be healthy. In honor of Dads 100th Birthday we will be planting a tree with a memorial plaque in his honor, more on location and details to follow soon.
My mother at 94 is now the new Inspiration for those wishing to reach 100 years of age in robust health......With that in mind, it will be turned into a source of information, of all things related to living a long and healthy life according to Ivan & Orpha, including many of their nutritional ideas, exercises, and alternative health choices.
