BANGOR, Maine (CBS) – Want to live as long as Florence Bearse? Try enjoying a glass of wine.

Bearse, a Massachusetts native who now lives in a Bangor nursing home, celebrated her 100th birthday Thursday.

According to WLBZ-TV, Bearse marked her big day with birthday cake, balloons and of course – wine.

“Oh, I like my wine,” she said. “Don’t take it away from me.”

Bearse used to run a restaurant and is now known for her “no-nonsense attitude and sense of humor” at the nursing home.

She had one more piece of advice to share with the TV station.

“Don’t take any baloney,” Bearse says.
