I met this girl at the bar the other night, and
I really like her. But I think she is one of those “bar”
girls, who goes out every night and gets loaded. Should I pursue
her, or just blow this off?
– Jack in Durango
I think you should find out how much you like her, by asking
yourself questions. Keep pursuing her, if your feelings are
true. If you think that she might be more interested in booze,
look at your own reasons for being at the bar. Let her be a
clue to aid in your decisions, and you might figure out if you
would like to meet someone else or buy her some more drinks
at the bar. If you find out more about her, that might be a
sign as well. Find out what kind of relationship you desire

is America obsessed with stupid, meaningless entertainment?
Friends, silly jam bands, clothing and the like are boring and
predictable, yet America loves them. Why?
Sitting here in the library, I often ponder that too...there
are books that have great recipes for world cuisine. In China,
the family is centered around food and the like. If you like
to travel, there are internet sites that have cheap airline
tickets waiting to take you to a cliff, lagoon (like in “Flipper”),
or a cavern where you can bungie jump! When I was riding Eurail
in Switzerland, I met two female travelers who just finished
parachuting onto a high peak. There are other “hobbies”
besides friends, silly jam bands and clothing. America needs
to listen to its own sermons it constantly preaches. Book it!
This age-old question needs to be examined every
so often: is wrestling real or fake?
Wrestling is fake when we fight in the arena, but when we can’t
predict the outcome of a match, it is real. Superfly Snuka is

Do you think home schooling is a good means of education?
Or does it leave out something important like children developing
relationships with other kids? What do you think?
– Mom in Mancos
Home schooling is great. Also consider home schooling other
children out of your home. Very true, kids need peers around
them. Home schooling will provide you with your own schedule
of learning for your child. You will be able to focus like a
bull’s eye on his/her needs. Maybe, involving other children
will become the only way to get homework assignments and book
reports done. Relationships not only involve other children
the same age, but older and younger friends. Instead of letting
your child read books and material, let him/her become a reporter
and find out the answers.
