Keep The Fire.
When Flossie Dickey turned 110 years old last week, her local morning news program in Spokane thought it a big enough deal to have her on the show. But was ol' Flossie excited about it? To hear her tell it, not one bit.
When you're 110-year-old Flossie Dickey, it turns out, your favorite activity is naps. Your secret to longevity? As many naps as you can get. And drinking your whiskey straight up.
You are not Flossie Dickey, though, nor are you 110. So you should probably fight the urge to stay in and doze off tonight, and make the most of it while you're still young enough to enjoy it. Or, in the immortal words of Flossie: “Don't fight it. Live it.” — Cory Graves

This tour, guitarist Malcolm Young will be replaced by his and Angus' nephew, Stevie Young.
