Some time ago I announced my goal to live to 100. Guess that is not all that exceptional nowadays.

We have applied to move to a Continuing Care Retirement Community in Carlsbad. There was a three year waiting list at the time we applied. We are advised that they are telling new applicants it's up to 4 years now.

When we took their tour the lady stopped to introduce us to one of the residents. It was his birthday: 100 years. She said they had two other centenarians and they were having a party for them. (I don't know how many residents there are - at least a couple of hundred.)

It is interesting to me that there is a wait to get an apartment. They are not inexpensive.
