    Excellent Bob, she's looking well. Let's see the Queens telegram.

    Re: 100 years old

    Cheers lads, Don, you have to apply online Through the Government website, which directs you to the Anniversaries Office at Buckingham Palace. You can as I did send an electronic copy of the original birth certificate, or a official copy from the records office, and they will send the Queens Birthday Card to the recipient after 0900 hrs on their birthday. They don't do telegrams any longer, The recipient also receives a registered letter from the Department of Work and Pensions, congratulating them on reaching the grand old age of 100 ! Be better if they chucked a 10.00 note in with it !

    Re: 100 years old

    Over here the Irish government sends them a cheque for something like 2000 Euros on their 100th. A mate's father in law got it last year,then died just after his 101st! Doesn't matter if you were born north of the border,they still consider you Irish! Mind you he was born just before there was a border anyway,come to think of it!

    You get a seniors card off the state government here when you reach, 60, I think, you can use it for discounts from all sorts of places. I noticed that when you reach 100 you get a special Platinum Card. Can't imagine what discounts you get with that, probably, skateboards, Bungie jumping, skydiving, that sort of thing.

    On that type of subject in Wales, Scotland and London people over 60 can travel free on Buses and local trains etc but in England they have to wait to retirement age, also for years in Wales anyone had free prescriptions but in England you had to pay until a couple of years back they let the over 60's have them free.

    People living to 100 in Scotland are few and far between, they are shunned as a disgrace to our culture. They must have led a good clean life eating healthily, e.g. fruit and veg. We don't want to encourage that sort of behaviour here.

    yes, but on the flip side, you have to live in Wales.

    Here they give a free travel card for bus and train at 60,followed by another at 65 that gives free travel over the whole island. I was given the lower grade one years ago when the Irish government gave their veterans one,so they reciprocated up here. Prescriptions have been free here for years.
