ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. -- Philip Corio celebrated a big milestone. Thursday marked his 106th birthday, and his age isn't slowing him down.
The New Jersey-born Albuquerque transplant is a devoted New York Yankees fan. He has seen both Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig play.
Corio spends five days a week as a wood carver. His family says Corio is a thrill seeker. Most recently he's been on a glider and a hot air balloon.
What's his secret to his longevity?
"Never smoking and just keep breathing," he said with a laugh.
Corio said eating lots of greens has helped him in the long run.
