A birthday party in Scottsdale is going to take 90-something candles and there won't be a shortage of things to celebrate.

The McDowell Village Senior Living Center is celebrating its 83 residents who will have birthdays in the 90s this year.

One word of advice from the seniors: stay active. Don't stop moving.

And another piece of advice: do what makes you happy.

"I see so many people working today that really don't like the jobs they have," says Stanley Knowlton, who celebrates his 92nd birthday on May 27.

Over their lifetimes, the residents say the greatest inventions they've seen are the internet, commercial airlines and cell phones.
