    Sing along to "My Favorite Thigs"...

    To commemorate her 69th birthday on October 1, actress/vocalist, Julie Andrews made a special appearance at Manhattan's Radio City Music Hall for the benefit of the AARP.

    One of the musical numbers she performed was "My Favorite Things" from the legendary movie "Sound Of Music."

    Here are the lyrics she used:

    Maalox and nose drops and needles for knitting,
    Walkers and handrails and new dental fittings,
    Bundles of magazines tied up in string,
    These are a few of my favorite things.

    Cadillacs and cataracts and hearing aids and glasses,
    Polident and Fixodent and false teeth in glasses,
    Pacemakers, golf carts and porches with swings,
    These are a few of my favorite things.

    When the pipes leak,
    When the bones creak,
    When the knees go bad,
    I simply remember my favorite things,
    And then I don' t feel so bad.

    Hot tea and crumpets and corn pads for bunions,
    No spicy hot food or food cooked with onions,
    Bathrobes and heating pads and hot meals they bring,
    These are a few of my favorite things.

    Back pains, confused brains, and no fear of sinnin',
    Thin bones and fractures and hair that is thinnin',
    And we won't mention our short shrunken frames,
    When we remember our favorite things.

    When the joints ache,
    When the hips break,
    When the eyes grow dim,
    Then I remember the great life I've had,
    And then I don't feel so bad.

    (Ms. Andrews received a standing ovation from the crowd that lasted over four minutes and repeated encores.)

    yes, that's funny but kind of sad that our conditions seem to age us prematurely. [This Message was Edited on 02/06/2007]

    Now we need one for cfs/fibro, I'll start it and you guys finish:

    Steroids and hormones and junkies' narcotics,
    Green tea and cysteine and cold probiotics,
    If I was cured I would certainly sing,
    These are a few of my favorite things.

    Pop Tarts and doughnuts and Cool Ranch Doritos,
    Hamburger Helper and frozen burritos,
    Now that I'm sick, doctors hear the "ka-ching",
    These are no longer my favorite things.

    okay, all neuros are dead from thinking
