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.
