A bit of useless trivia for you … the oldest Facebook user in the world is 101-year young Florence Detlor from Menlo Park in California.
Menlo Park is also home to Facebook’s massive organisation (over 6,600 employees) and among its most notable residents are Google founder Sergey Brin and folk singer, Joan Baez.
However, for Aussies, the most famous thing about Menlo Park is that it’s where Phar Lap died in April 1932 … when Florence was just 21 years old.

If you want to read a terrific article on Phar Lap which appeared in the April 1932 edition of US Bloodhorse, click here.
