101-year-old woman won't give up her computer

An inspiring woman from Louisiana proves that you're never too old to learn something new.

Don't mess with Dixie Dee's computer. The 101-year-old bought the computer 12 years ago with money she was saving to bury herself.

Dee says she's fulfilling her lifelong dream of becoming a writer. In fact, she was paid for seven of her books.

"They can come and take my cook stove. I don't want to cook anyway anymore," said Dee. "They can take everything else, but don't touch my computer."

Dee nicknamed the computer "Mr. Scrambled Brain." She doesn't care about social networking. She credits beer, "the good drink" as she calls it, for her long life.
