The latest news from the Hancock News Service - odd news fair and balanced!
A 90-year-old great grandmother is earning the respect of gym junkies half her age in Australia. Edna Shepherd is a regular at a Melbourne workout center. With aqua classes every other day and ballroom dancing in between, she has an astonishing fitness routine. She says she can't sit down for long. She is always on the move. She said exercise came as naturally to her as knitting - but that's not something she has a lot of time for.
