She credits her longevity to drinking a Guinness every day since her 30s.
As important as it is to find the right beer for your burger, matching the right beer to your favorite ice cream is the only way to insure that you'll be able to make damn great ice cream floats... and you need to be confident in your capability to make a damn great ice cream float at any moment. Knowing this is a huge self-esteem builder.
