98 - not out!

Whether people can drive or not is largely irrelevant to age and the proof of that can be seen in the demographics of our road toll.  But regardless of that, being 98 does not mean you have to stop caring in this world.  Being 98 does not mean you have to stop living in this world.  Being 98 does not mean you have to bow out.

Missed your chance to be a supermodel? Maybe not...

We tend to think of supermodels are young things with the sort of beauty that holds true for a little while, then dies with their popularity (or is it the other way around?)

Not always the case.

In the case of Daphne Selfie - and isn't that an appropriate name! - we can see very clearly that age is certainly no limit.  She is the world's OLDEST supermodel and holds the Guiness World Record!  She is 87 and has been modelling for over 60 years.

She is glamorous, she has style, she is beautiful - and mostly, she clearly sees what so many of us do not - Age No Limit!

Larry Johnson might be 95 but he hasn't stopped living!

Larry Johnson has no problems filling in his time.  Being 95 years old does not stop him doing cycling classes three times a week.  Then, there are the upper-body workouts - also three times a week.  In fact, the only day he takes it easy is Saturday!  And in the winter, he goes skiing at least once a week.

And when we said that he takes Saturday off…  well sometimes he's actually doing a 35 mile bike ride along Albuquerque's trails.  Because he has plans.  He aims to win four cycling events - the 5km, 10km, 20km and 40km at the National Senior Games in Minneapolis!

It all started when he was 90 years old, his grandson challenged him to ride one mile for every year.  Larry Johnson was up for the challenge!  Larry Johnson, like many others, is clearly a firm believer in the adage Age No Limit!

And Larry's advice to us all?

From his profile:
"A lot of it is a mindset. You’ve got to appreciate your body for the wonderful machine that it is and you just gotta keep it working. 
I like to tell people to compare it to your car. You have to take care of it to keep it going. You change the oil, get new tires and a battery, you clean the upholstery if you spill something on it. It’s the same way with your body.

You’ve got to feed it well, exercise it, work up a sweat and get your heart rate up. Keep your mind going. If you park your car in the garage and don’t run it the first thing you know the tires go flat and the battery is dead. You have high tech parts,so get some high tech things for your body. Get on the Internet, your email, your cell phone. Find solutions, put a smile on your face and have a social life."

Too old to do WHAT? This lady has them ALL beat!

Some of us can't do the stairs - we need the lifts and elevators.

But Doris Long (MBE) is an inspiration to us all. 

Doris is 101 years old.

But that's not the big thing.

At the sprightly young age of 101, Doris Long became the world's oldest abseiler. 

She climbs down the sides of buildings with a rope!

It was hard work.  But the wind and rain did not put her off, even if she did 'swing about a bit'.  She said "I enjoyed it, I feel it's well worth it".  True, her legs ached and her arm.  And it didn't do her hair do any good - but she still hopes to repeat the challenge next year - when she has turned 102!

Doris, great-great-grandmother was cheered and applauded by the watching crowd when she got to the bottom of the tower.

This is not her first abseil though.  She did it last year too, when she turned 100.  In fact, she has been doing it since she was 85.

She started started abseiling when she was 85!  Too old to start something new?  Definitely not.

"I don't feel afraid and never have" she said.


Doris Long (MBE) who took to abseiling at 85 years old and has just broken her own world record by descending almost a hundred meters down the side of a spinnaker tower in Portsmouth, England, is living proof of our motto - Age No Limit.

Too old to save lives? Never.

Lots of people think that when they 'get old' they are no longer needed or useful.  We won't debate it - instead let's rephrase it:

Sometimes, when we have accumulated lots of life experience, we think that we can no longer contribute to the world.

Put like that it sounds contradictory doesn't it!  Well, of course it is.  No matter how old we are, we have lots of value and can offer amazing amounts of help to the world which, let's face it, needs help.

Here's a good example.

Wendy Smith was eighty-four but decided to learn first aid.  So she did her first aid training with St John Ambulance.  Just a way of passing time, you might say.  Just a bit of amusement.  Not likely to be of any use.

Her neighbour is still here to tell you different.  After having a heart attack,  he had stopped breathing.  It's called 'died'.  Because of her willingness to learn and have a positive impact on the world - despite being 84 years young - her neighbour survived.  Wendy Smith, 84, saved his life.  This eighty-four year old did CPR for ten minutes until the ambulance arrived. 

So don't think you are too old.  Don't think that your usefulness has come to an end.  Because, at the end of the day, Wendy Smith and her neighbour are living proof of Age No Limit.

Too old to ride a horse? Not even at ninety!

Thea Murphy always wanted to ride a horse.  For practically all of her ninety years, it was her ambition.  She was ninety, partially paralyzed and blind in one eye.  And did we mention that she was ninety years old?  Too old to ride a horse huh?

Well, proving the adage of Age No Limit, she did ride a horse!  A non-profit group called 'Celebrating Seniors' made it all possible.

She loves animals and she loves horses especially and will not be forgetting her ride too soon.  Yes, she said, she might be a little sore tomorrow but it didn't matter a bit.  This was a day never to be forgotten.

Marathon Man at 101 years old!

Faujah Sing lost his wife and son when he was 89.  Most people might have given up on life but he decided there was life in him yet and he started running.   And so it was that in February 2013, he became the oldest person to run a marathon - at 101 years old!

And he didn't stop there - he's since completed eight more races!

But he was no stranger to record breaking - he broke NINE world records during his trip to Toronto in 2011!

Just take a look a the following videos - here's one guy who definitely doesn't buy in to the stereotype vision of older people:

He'd be the first to say.... Age No Limit!

Never too old to get married.

George Kirby and Doreen Luckie certainly don't think you can be too old to get married.  Since Doreen is 91 and George is a sprightly 103 - they should know!

According to George, Doreen keeps him young.  Despite that, he didn't get down on one knee - getting up might have been too much of a problem.

And it hasn't been a whirlwind romance either.  They first 'got together' twenty seven years ago and have spent that time living together and really getting to know each other.  But don't think twenty-seven years has dimmed the romance.  George even proposed on Valentine's Day and when they do marry it will be in front of 60 guests.


George and Doreen prove, beyond a shadow of a doubt - Age No Limit!

You can't teach an old dog new tricks - OH, BUT YOU CAN!

There are plenty of people that will tell you that your school days are over.

There are plenty of people that will tell you that you are too old to learn.

There are plenty of people that will tell you that you can't teach old dogs new tricks.

But they are wrong.

Quite apart from Elizabeth Kirby who gained her PhD at 93, there is that of Kimani Maruge who held the Guiness World Record for being the oldest person to start primary school at 84.  He knew that education was important and - most importantly - that you are never too old to learn.

Then, there is the case of Kenyan grandmother Priscilla Sitienei - who prefers to be called Gogo - who attends primary school with with six of her great-great-grandchildren.

She wanted to learn to read the bible and to inspire children to learn.  Many older children no longer attend school and when confronted they say that they are 'too old'.  Well, Gogo soon puts them right on that score.  You are NEVER too old.  And she is living proof.

The headmaster of her school calls her a blessing - which she undoubtedly is.  And all of the pupils just love her.

She is an inspiration to us all.

She even has a sign on her dormitory at the school - it reads 'Welcome to Priscilla's Dormitory - Education has no age limit'.   Well, we'd second that.

Elizabeth Kirby, Kimani Maruge and Priscilla Sitienei are all shining examples of Age No Limit!

Never too old to become an Artist

Sam Lustig started sculpting in his 70s.  At a time when most people would be giving up, he decided to try something new.  And when he decides something, he doesn't do it by halves.   Now he is in his nineties and designing sculptures in his own studio.


His sculptures are not tiny either - and they are far from simple statues.  Most are interactive - they move when you touch them, or in some cases, when the wind blows.


Of course, he doesn't spend all his time creating sculptures - he also works out on one of his exercise machines!

Sam is a perfect example of Age No Limit.

Too old to keep fit? Not even at 99 years old!

Margaret Grove was ninety-nine when she started taking fitness classes at the Westend Seniors Activity Centre on Ottawa!

But although Margaret is the oldest, she's not the only one.  Rose Boucher - a young 72 - has rheumatoid arthritis and says that going to the classes helps her a lot.  And it's fun, she adds.  And Gwyneth Bell - who is 84 - goes twice a week to build up her muscle strength.  "It makes a difference," she says.  "It really does".

Margaret Grove - who let's remind ourselves is 99 years old - says the classes helped her regain mobility after breaking her hip.  

Some people have been coming to Ilonka Wormsbecker's fitness classes for more than 20 years.  And if you didn't guess it, Ilonka herself is no spring chicken at 84.

Which all just goes to prove - you are never too old to keep fit.  Honestly, it's just another case of Age No Limit.

Too old to break records? Think again!

You are never to old to break records (or set them)!  Don't believe me?  Well check out this little list of record-breakers and see what you think:

  • 91-year-old Sy Perlis broke the world bench press record for his age
  • Dr Charles Eugster is 95 and has broken the 200m world record for his class
  • Tom Lackey is 93 and he broke the record for the world's oldest wing walker after wing walking for about 91 minutes across the Irish Sea!  He claimed it was very refreshing.  And cold.  And very very noisy

  • 103 year old Gus Andreone made an ace at the golf club using a driver at a 114-yard-par-3.  In English - he became the oldest person ever to make a hole-in-one!
  • Harriette Thompson ran a seven hour marathon in San Diego last year - she's 91 and recovering from cancer.  She beat the previous record for women 90 and over by TWO HOURS and FORTY-FIVE MINUTES

  • Margit Tall, from Finland,  who walks with a stick is possibly the oldest woman bungee jumper at 95 years old.  She did it, loved it and didn't let out one scream.  And she has the certificate to prove it.   Only Mohr Keet, a from South Africa, is older - he was 96 when he did his jump!
  • Japanese mountaineer Tamae Watanabe, 73, is still climbing; she set a world record last month, becoming the oldest woman to scale Mount Everest, the tallest mountain in the world. She broke her own record, set when she was 63.
All over ninety years old - and one over 100 - and they all broke records. 

Take a look at some of the pictures on FLICKR

When you think that your time for achievement is over - think about these wonderful examples of Age No Limit.

There are many things that can stop us achieving - just because we are older doesn't mean that it is the end.  Sometimes, it means it is just the start.

Will Fyffe - Scottish Music Hall star - writes about being Ninety Years Old

A little light relief from Will Fyffe.

Will Fyffe was probably best known for his classic song - I belong to Glascow.  In the 30s he was one of the highest paying performers on the music halls.  He recorded over thirty songs and starred in over twenty films.

It's nice to sit down when you're nintey-four, Down by the kitchen fire,
And think o' the times you used to have, And the girls that you admire.
But a farmer's life's a healthy life, I feel as good as new,
And I'll bet a bob you'll be surpris'd at what I'll tell to you.

I'm ninety-four this mornin', Aye, I'm ninety-four today.
I'm not so young as I used to be, I'm gettin' old and grey.
But my heart is young, and I'm fond of fun, And I'm very proud to say
That I'm gettin' married on Thursday Tho' I'm ninety-four today.

Of course down in the village It will be a big surprise,
The people think it's all a joke, That the minister's telling lies.
Oh! But we will get the laugh at them, As sure as I'm alive,
For there'll maybe be a christ'ning yet Before I'm ninety-five.
I'm ninety-four this mornin', Aye, I'm ninety-four today.
I'm not so young as I used to be, I'm gettin' old and grey.
But my heart is young, and I'm fond of fun, And I'm very proud to say
That I'm gettin' married on Thursday Tho' I'm ninety-four today.
Hear him perform this piece and be amazed.  And amused.

AND although he was actually only 44 when he released this song, we think it still backs up our belief in Age No Limit.

You are never too old to ...

There are lots of things you are 'never to old' to do... here are just a few.  And with them, examples of those who have done them.

  1. You are never too old to ...  pass your driving test!   At 94, Lord Renton passed his driving test.  The British will know him as a 'Tory peer' and a former government minister.  We'll just remember him as someone who was not too old...
  2. You are never too old to ... be Prime Minister!   Lord Palmerston became Prime Minister of England when he was 71.  Whether or not he did a good job is another question, but age proved to be no limit for him.
  3. You are never too old to ... go to the North Pole!  Dorothy Davenhill Hirsch was 89 when she became the oldest person to visit the North Pole.  Forty degrees below zero - but she didn't let that stop her.
  4. You are never too old to ... get your pilot's license!  Retired Lt Col James C Warren at 87 became the world's oldest person to get his pilot's license.  Now that's what we call a 'high flyer'. 
  5. You are never too old to ... get published!  Good news for all us budding authors.  Bertha Wood published her first book entitled "Fresh Air and Fun: The Story of a Blackpool Holiday Camp" on her 100th birthday. 
  6. You are never too old to ... go into outer space! We tend to think of astronauts as young twenty-somethings.  But yet another myth is consigned to the slop bucket with the story of John Glenn who became the oldest person to go into space - at 77!  
So when someone says you are 'too old to...' - tell them to shut the old cake-hole and remind them of this list.

Because you are never too old.  Because, as we keep reminding ourselves, Age no Limit.

Australia's oldest PhD at 93!

Some may remember the character Lucy Sutcliffe from TV's Number 96.  It was the show that - some say - lost Australia it's virginity!  It was rude, funny and addictive.  Nothing like it came before and, I'd add, nothing like it has come along since.  Because nothing has been the same since.  Number 96 went beyond the expected - broke new limits.

And Elizabeth Kirby, who played Lucy Sutcliffe, has broken new limits again.  At 93, she has attained her PhD with a thesis - a comparative study of the Great Depression and the Global Financial Crisis.  And she should know - she has lived through both.

She decided to do the thesis because 'you either use it or lose it'. 

Well, she certainly hasn't lost it yet.  According to her classmates, she brings a wealth of knowledge and experience and a contagious positive attitude.  She inspires those about her to set their mind to things and to achieve it.  As Angie Ng says, "the best time to do anything is not about your age, it is to do it now". 

As Elisabeth herself says: "When you do get to retirement, have a holiday by all means, relax, but then find something interesting to do, something you've always wanted to do and maybe never have the opportunity because too many other things happened in your life. I think that that is what is really important. "


From Number 96 to Australia's Oldest PhD at 93

You are never too old to (belly) dance!

One hundred years old - and still dancing.  Not just dancing, but moving it like the best of them. 

Yes, you are never to old to dance and you are never too old to belly dance!

Kay First says "I don't feel a hundred"and puts her longevity down to being a nice person and 'keeping it all shaking'.   She has always loved belly dancing and used to be a hair dresser - and she'd dance in her shop.  "The more you do something for somebody, God would bless you.  And that's what I done all my life."

Watch the video below of Kay below.   At the end of the day, Kay is just one more example of Age No Limit.

Too old to do something new? Never!

Pretty well most people have heard of Christopher Lee.  Star of zillions of horror films, played the role of Saruman in the Lord of the Rings trilogy....   Mr Dracula himself.

He's actually got a few strings to his bow.  Apart from the many, many films he has starred in, he is also an accomplished singer.  Classically-trained, he actually sung on The Wicker Man soundtrack as well as the credits of a number of television shows.

But when he turned ninety he felt like doing something different.

In 2010 he released his album 'Charlemagne: By the Sword and the Cross'.  It was critically acclaimed.   Then there was the sequel - 'Charlemagne: The Omens of Death'.  Pretty dark sounding titles but what would we expect from the king of horror?

For his 90th birthday he released something a little different.  A heavy metal single called 'Let Legend Mark me as the King'.  At 90 he is the oldest heavy metal performer ever!  Does that make him a king?  Well, that's for his fans to decide.  But it does prove one thing ...  yep, you guessed it.  Age No Limit!

Old people are only fit for retirement - NO!

Let's get this straight.  If you can afford to retire and you want to retire then go for it!  It's a great opportunity to live life as it was meant to be lived.

Except that not everyone wants to retire.

And anyway, retirement is just a word.

Case in point, Barbara Beskind.  She got her dream job.   Ever since she was ten years old, she wanted to be an inventor.  Now, she is working in silicon valley - where all the computer bits are made.

She's 91 years old!   Not too old to start a new job and not too old to start the job she wanted.

Elderly people, she says, bring experience that can't be taught.  Darn right.

And she has some very sage words of advice such:

"the beauty of being 91 is that you can look back and see how the little pieces fit into the big pieces of life, and life is a complete puzzle."


"Age is no barrier to performance."

and "Don't let 'old' become your identity.  Everyone has untapped resources.  You just have to find them.  They may be in music, they may be in childcare, they may be in volunteering at the hospital or the library.  I think with the aging, you so often lose your identity"

Today's 90 year-olds are sharper than ever!

According to to a Danish report published in the medical journal, the Lancet, nonagenerians (those 90 to 100) are mentally sharper than those who turned ninety years ago.

They compared two cognitive test groups and found that today's ninety-somethings have got more mental faculties intact. 

The first group was born in 1905 and tested in 1998.  The other group were born in 1915 and tested in 2010.  Average age of the second group was actually two years older yet they were twice as likely to attain a higher score than the first group.

They also lived longer.  They were 32% more likely to reach 95.   According to Kaare Christensen of the Danish Aging Research Centre, "Not only are more people living to a higher age, they are also doing so in better shape...".

Of course, that was in Denmark.

According to the World Health Organization, the U.S. and Denmark both have an average life expectancy of 79.   It is probably safe to put the U.K. and Australia in the same ball-park, so the results likely apply to you and me too.

These findings offer hope - the benefits of exercise, social interaction, stimulation and so forth can lead people to continue to enjoy their life - their long lives.

Age might be blunting the edges but there's still plenty of go.

People have the faculties - they just need somewhere to facultate!

Or put more simply (but less humorously), Age No Limit.

Too old to make a difference? Think again!

Alfred - but he prefers Alfie - Date is 109 years old.  And he is still making a difference.

Alfie has a rather unusual hobby, at least for men - so he's breaking more than one stereotype here.  He knits.  Yes, Alfie has been knitting now for over 80 years.  And although he's 109, he is still knitting.  Booties? No.  Cardigans?  No.  Christening shawls? No!

Alfie knits sweaters for penguins!


Yes-sir-ee.   Penguins are sometimes affected by environmental hazards such as oil spills.  When they attempt to groom themselves, they ingest the oil and are poisoned. But thanks to Alfie and the Phillip Island Penguin Foundation there is hope.

Because Alfie is their saviour.

You are never too old to dance.

According to dancer and choreographer Eileen Kramer, you can still dance at 100.  And she should know - she is!

She recently raised the money via her Insipiring Eileen project to allow her to put on her latest show which included a group of dancers, costumes, musicians and was a raging success over two days.

She says that she is not a highly acrobatic dancer - she is a soft dancer.   But, according to Dr Maggie Haertsch, she is "an extraordinary ball of energy. She is completely blind in one eye and she is making all the costumes and creating the set."

Dancing, says Eileen, psychologically strengthens her.

Watch just one of the shorts produced in advance of her show:

Most definitely, in Eileen's case, you can say without any doubt, Age No Limit.


There are thousands of articles and news items about Eileen Kramer - the following are just a tiny few.  Click through them, though, as there are some wonderful video interviews and more examples of the preparation for her stage show.

100 years old? Go jump out of a plane!

Two stories here - two centenarians who celebrated their 100th birthday by jumping out of planes.  

Great Grandmother, Georgina Harwood (South Africa), did it in Cape Town.   She described the experience as wonderful, as exhilarating.  But it wasn't her first jump!  Her first was at age 92!

And then, there's Eleanor Cunnihgham, also 100, from New York.  She took the plunge in Gansevoort. This great-great-grandmother made sure to give her seven-month old great-great-granddaughter a kiss before that great flight.  But again, this was not her first time!  She's an experienced skydiver - starting young at ninety years old!  Her doctor was fully supportive - her health was well up to it!

We tend to think of ourselves as 'past it' or 'too old'.  Well, maybe that's just a state of mind - maybe that's just a label that other people give us, that all too often, we start to believe.

In reality, it's another case - two cases actually - of Age No Limit!

Love is Love - at any age.

Vivian (91) and Alice (90) were in love for more than seven decades.  They have enjoyed being together all of those years and have done some serious travelling - most of the U.S, Canada and England (twice!) "We've had a good time" said Alice.

Keeping a relationship going for over 70 years takes lots of love and a lot of effort.  Especially when the world frowns - and the law prohibits - such a relationship.

But now the law has caught up with the heart.

You might have your opinion for or against gay marriage - that's your business.  The important thing is that these two wonderful ladies obviously fully agree with the principle - Age No Limit.  As they say - it is never too late for a new chapter in life.

Sky-diving for charity - at Ninety-One!

Joy Jeffes is supporting an RSPCA fundraising jump.  She read about it in an RSPCA newsletter and just couldn't resist the idea.  Her friends might think she is potty for this but it's something she always wanted to do.  "I'm not nervous just excited; it will be fabulous" she said.   It was on top of her bucket list!

Age No Limit


Ninety one-year-old to skydive for charity

When it comes to standing up for what you believe in, age is no limit.

Case in point, Arnold Abbott - arrested in Florida for handing out food to the homeless.

He has in fact been arrested and charged a number of times.

Yes, he's ninety years old.  But he stands up for what he believes in.   As he says, "These are the poorest of the poor, they have nothing, they don't have a roof over their heads. How do you turn them away?"

Age No Limit.

Age No Limit

It's all about showing that age does not have to be a limiter.  Because you have more life experience, that doesn't mean you must give up on life, on living.

'Age No Limit' is all about showcasing the achievements of those who are mature in years but who have still got a lot of living to do.  They may be eighty years old or a hundred.  They may be male or female.  They may be any race or religion.  But they will share one attribute.

They are still determined to live.

But 'Age No Limit' is not just about encouraging people to live their lives to the full.  It is also about showing others that 'old age' (and don't we hate that term?) is not necessarily a closing down of life, but rather it can be a continuation of the adventure of living.

It is about not limiting others because of their age, but rather of supporting them.

We wont all desire to skydive.  We wont all wish to star in theatrical shows.

But we all want to live out our lives to the full.

We all want to live.

So check back, it's early days.  But I hope to include some stories here that will inspire.
