    A SWiki member said the Julie Andrews song is a hoax.
    It's funny anyway, even though she never sang it.

    Very funny song. Important to remember, though, that knowing about TMS, good nutrition, keeping up with exercise, etc. can mitigate many of these problems even at a very advanced age. My husband's aunt is 95 and in amazing shape both mentally and physically. Of course, genetics help but she says her big secret is this: "NEVER say "no" to something you want to do because you think you are too old. Do it anyway!" She still golfed until 94 and only quit because she moved too far from a golf course.

    Zumba, anybody?
