ask bo a question, and he will answer it, whether he knows the answer or not.

Do I have to publish my question on the internet to have a conversation with you? Am I allowed more than one question? Will you give me a call? I am losing my hair too, should I get a hat? Will you answer my question without asking me another question? If you don't know the answer, what would Plato say? I don't think Plato was into hats, but only because they weren't around then, which means he would definitley recommend the hat. Everyone is more interesting with a head. It is a mode of personal expression. So yes on the hat regardless of the hair issue. Thank you Bo. I really don't need to hear from you now.
The answers to your questions are: No, yes, yes, yes, yes, I don't know.
Nice to hear from you.

Bo. What is the meaning of life?
"Why are we here?
Sorry to take so long to get to your question, but
quality computer time has been scarce for me the last
few months...that's the way it goes sometimes
while I'm on the road. And these days I'm always on
the road, which is how I like it. To quote a song,
"We're only at home when we're on the run..."
Count on you to ask such a question! I don't even
know if you're being serious or humorous, so I'll
treat your question both ways. If we consult The
Hitchiker's Guide to the Galaxy, we find that the
ultimate answer to the ultimate question about life,
the universe, and everything, is 42! Unfortunately,
due to a most unusual sequence of events, we never
quite discover what the specific question is, but
still...at least we know the answer! (If you've got
some time to kill and like to read, Douglas Adam's
"Hitchiker's" Guide trilogy is recommended
reading. WARNING: Whether you knew it or not, some
trilogies can go past three.)
There is actually a movie called The Meaning of
Life. It's by Monty Python, and there's lots of
educational and entertaining stuff in
there...entertaining if you have a Pythonesque sense
of humor, and educational if like your education in
form of clever songs like "The Galaxy Song."
Unfortunately Pete, I don't think your sense of humor
will agree with Monty Python's, and you may decide the
movie is stupid and silly. (Perhaps the grossest
movie-moment of all times takes place during this
movie, so beware.) At any rate, when all is said and
done, the best answer Monty Python can give to the
question, "What is the meaning of life?" is,
"We don't know!"
And you know, this is the most honest and accurate
answer any human could give to this question. People
who tell you they know the answer to your question are
deluding you, themselves, or both. The answer is
different for each person's life. So one of your
in life should be to determine the answer to the
questions: "What is the meaning of my life? What am
here for? What should I do, and who should I become?"
You can get clues from others and from your own
explorations, but only you can put the clues together
to come up with the answer that's right for you. If
your question was serious, I don't want to disappoint
you by simply saying, "Bo don't know," so I'll leave
you with a couple of clues.
Clue number one: Learn love. Learn to love your
life, love the fact that you're alive, that there's so
much life all around you...people, animals,
plants...that the world is so alive in so many amazing
ways. Love your wife, your family, your friends, the
people you don't like, the people you've never met,
even the ant that bites you. Love the fact that you
can be in a state of love; then attain that state, and
try your best to stay there every waking moment.
Clue number two: Regardless of your religious
beliefs, take time to read Matthew, chapters 5, 6, and
7 from the Bible.( <<< CLICK HERE)
It is here that Christ gives his
disciples some guidlines for living their lives.
(This is the longest quote from Christ in the entire
Bible.) The guidelines he gives them are fitting in
their time, and they are guidelines that still are
appropriate today. You can live by them, or use them
as a foundation from which to choose the directions
your life will take.
So there are some clues. Go exploring, and next
time I see you, I'll be asking you what is the meaning
of YOUR life.
Because we're here."

Why didn't you teach me more when I was a kid?
I don't know, Joe, why do YOU think I didn't teach you
more? I honestly believe I treated everyone equally
in practice; the ones who got extra attention between
practices were the ones who asked.
Why didn't you
ask? I usually have my hands full enough with those
wanting help, without running after others begging
them to let me teach them more. Do you think the fact
that you were in Australia for several years was a
factor in limiting our quality time together?
Finally: we're both still alive, we're still friends,
I'm still a teacher... What would you like to learn?
what is the proper way to serve coffee?
All I want is a proper cup of coffee
made in a proper copper coffee pot.
I may be off my dot, but I wanna proper coffee
in a proper copper pot.
Iron coffee pots and tin coffee pots-
They are no use to me.
If I can't have a proper cup of coffee
in a proper copper coffee pot
I'll have a cup of tea!
