Ted Binge – Whisky does the trick

9TedBingeAnother York man, Ted Binge, celebrated his 100th birthday by saying a bit of whisky every day is the key to his long life. Ted has a glass in the morning and another before bed, getting through half a bottle of whisky each week.

Ted said: “It’s beautiful, wonderful stuff. I love it. It’s never done me any harm, maybe they should put it on prescription.

“I had my first taste of it as a young man, when I had a bit of a cold and my father gave me a nip of whisky saying, `that will make you feel better’.

“It did the trick and I liked it, so I started having a glass on a morning. I like it straight, as it should be. I always say work as long as you can because it’s good for you. I love to have a laugh and a joke, sometimes a bit of a sing, it keeps you going.”
