Les Cook, aged 99, is remarkable - I called him a marvel. He still mows his lawns, front and back, spends one and a half hours a day picking raspberries in January, he marches on April 25 and makes Anzac biscuits annually and, one year, he added cheese and red pepper to the recipe and no sugar and says they were not popular.
