a particular individual:

Nowhere does the article say how old she was. That there is some fine reportin'.
Second sentence of TFA: "She was the last surviving member of the musical family of seven brothers and sisters and passed away in her sleep at home in Vermont at the age of 99 on Tuesday, PEOPLE confirms."

Lava Lamp Repairman: That's one way to solve a problem called Maria.


I was thinking along similar lines...but this was the daughter named Maria, not the nun played by Julie Andrews.

99

I have lived near the von Trapp lodge for neigh on 20 years.

I'm quite sick fo the balderdash about the entire thing.
It's become a gatdang side show what with the tourists and the skiers and the heroin junkie trust busting trustafarian kids spat out by the better then thou noveou riche coonts that spatter the hills with their coontry club land raping rent hiking real estate venture capitalist flatlander opportunist bastards that come to Vermont and try to make a killing on industrializing the landscape to incorporate a better, thicker portfolio for them selves and their snot nosed crotch goblins.

How do you solve a problem like maria?
How do you catch a cloud and pin it down?
How do you find a word that means Maria?
(one nun at a time)
A flibbertigibbet?
A will of a whisp
a clown

You dig a hole and stick her in it before she starts to stink.

You know, they had an entire ski resort built on top of Mount Mansfield on the premise that Stowe is a paradise in the winter time. The whole von Trapp clap trap is part of that marketing scheme. And rather than garner the correct and compliant permits for sewage, the newly built Octagon House restaurant just had a huge discharge pie fo rsewage that spwewed the craps and greases out onto the landscape in into the creeks, and waterfalls of the "Stoweside" of the mountain.

That is what industrialists will use local publicity for.

The von Trapp Lodge?
I won't say what kind of luck you would have as a cook, or maid there.

I do have a working knowledge of what happens when you let money take over and use mthology for its own purpose, however.

zimbomba63: I don't know, the baron had that other babe, the countess, after him.  I would have chose her over Julie Andrews, who came off as too much of a goody two shoes.  The countess looked like she was ready for anything in the sack, plus, she had some ideas you never thought of.

/ Per the movie, wasn't the baron suppose to be in the Austrian Navy.  Austria is a land-locked country.


It wasn't landlocked when Baron Von Trapp served in the Navy. He was a pretty decorated submarine commander during WWI.

\Border changes due to the collapse of the Austro-Hungarian empire,
\\How the fark do they wok?

I doubt it's a joke. I've heard people make that comment before, and it's never been anything but ignorance.

Captain Horatio Mindblower: Foxxinnia: Whoa whoa whoa back up. The Sound of Music was based on a true story?

If you watch the video, there's a notice in the credits: "Based on a whitewash of the Anschluss".


Yeah, I soon got sick of the "Sieg Heil, mate!" and "This is Ubergruppenfuhrer Bruce."

In the movie, they made it sound as if he was still in the Navy.  The Anschluss was what, 20 years after the break up of the Austro-Hungarian empire.  The passage of time, how does it wok.

Delay: Actually, only one of the verses in the Sound of Music song says goodbye. However the finale goes over the top.


Song:
So long, farewell
Auf Weidersehen, good bye

Finale:
(Children)So long, farewell
Auf Weidersehen, goodbye
Goodbye
Goodbye
Goodbye
(guests)
Goodbye


I absolutely LOVE The Sound of Music.  I totally love all the sappy lovey-dovey parts and tear up every time I see the movie.  However, when the guests all sing "goodbye" to the children upstairs, that part just makes me cringe and I can hardly keep my eyes open or take my hands off my ears when that happens.  Just too much!

Scarlet fever was no joke. My aunt had it as a child. Her doctors said if she ever had any children the stress of delivery would kill her. So she had ten. Had to get artificial heart valves later in life but ten kids when they said she should have none.
