I won't drink till I am 100...

CNN is carrying the news of the death of an antarctica explorer Norman Vaughan

An interesting overview of a life of a person, his shot to fame as an explorer, high and low moments in his life ( his jobs include working as a dishwasher and as shoveling snow from sidewalks, as mentioned in the article), to his great work in the exploration of antarctica.

The interesting thing here is, that he had promised his mother that he won't drink till he was 100, and in the true spirit, he kept his promise,

'Vaughan had a taste of champagne Saturday during his birthday celebration'

Guess this must have been a great memory, and a good way to end an illustrious life..
