Thanks for the heads-up. Very interesting. I read in The Philadelphia Inquirer yesterday:

"The nonprofit Methuselah Foundation is offering a $3.9 million prize to the researcher who manages to get a middle-aged mouse (two years old) to live an additional three years."

Do we have a winner?

Keep their living space cool, and supplement their diet with Rev--- (can't remember the name...it's a dietary supplement from red grape skins that has been shown to help mice/rats live longer...)
