Elton John's partner, David Furnish, tells Billboard magazine that he hopes Elton continues to perform after his farewell tour is done. “It’s really important to make a distinction between Elton retiring from touring but Elton not playing his very last public performance for the very last time. Will Elton return as a live performer? I hope so! It’s in his blood. I know for a fact he will not be touring in any capacity. What you’re going to see is the possibility of a special one-off or a small residency in one venue for a limited period of time. I don’t think it will be Las Vegas. Elton feels he’s done the best he can in Las Vegas. He mounted two hugely successful residencies there.

The idea of running that long seems ridiculous to me. I run purely for fitness, I’m not competitive. I’m competitive with everything else but not with running.”

My wife got her hair cut and colored because we are going to a huge Thanksgiving dinner with our entire family. She came home and asked me if I liked her new style and color. I told her I did not. She went ballistic and started a fight. She says I'm a jerk and was acting insensitive. I disagree. I was just being honest which I think is better than lying in this case. She obviously doesn't think so. Should I have told the truth or lied? Which is the right thing to do?
