� � � � � � � � � � � � � � � � � � � � � � � � �������������������������� ������������������������ � ���������������������������� ��� Marmaduke ® By Brad Anderson HOROSCOPE /JERALDINE SAUNDERS ARIES (March 21-April 19): Your unwavering energy may waver a bit later today; plan to take some time out to recharge your batteries. The glow of loving togetherness is still shining, so you should find warm arms waiting at home to embrace you. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Shifting celestial conditions signify that you should take a little break from decision-making. Your charisma and sex appeal are still robust and unflagging, so continue to enjoy special moments with a significant other tonight. GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Your balanced opinions can be a valuable commodity but a downturn in the mood signals a halt to starts of new projects. However, romantic embers may still be burning on the home front and need little encouragement to rekindle loving flames. CANCER (June 21-July 22): You may need to take a breather from a tough schedule and relax this evening. Avoid making important agreements or decisions for the next few days. Kick back and take it easy preferably with a romantically inclined other . LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Continue to move forward on whatever has been recently started, but be circumspect and considerate. Hold off putting any additional irons in the fire at this time. New ties and connections are still glowing with helpful enthusiasm. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Practice what you preach. Your common sense makes you a valued adviser — especially since you can rise far beyond personal interests. Employ your wisdom where your own finances are concerned. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Your love light may still be shining today, so use your attractive appeal to secure existing agreements or enliven a network of new connections. Plan to take a few days to review and digest new situations before making additional moves. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Quit while you are ahead. While things are running smoothly you can cash in the chips and take a break. Kick back and relax for the next few days and enjoy the fruits of your labors. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): A period of rest and relaxation is the best prescription for those who work and play hard. Cozy intimate relationships can still bring a smile to your face and joy into your life, but career objectives should be put in a holding pattern. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Too many cooks spoil the broth. Let things that have been started recently simmer in the background and take time out for reflection. Get some needed rest and relaxation and put aside ambitions for a few days. AQ UARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): From little acorns great oaks grow. Although you can think deep thoughts about the future and visualize needed changes, it isn’t quite the time to put your ideas into action. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Peaceful discussions can smooth misunderstandings and lift you and an important other to a higher plateau of agreement. Take time out from a busy schedule to recharge your batteries with a visit to a spa or get a relaxing massage. IF NOVEMBER 10 IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: Gentle ways and a sympathetic outlook may give way to an eagerness to fight for what is right. In the coming year you will no longer be content to sit on the sidelines. Yo u will be ready to leap into action whenever you hear the call. Your initiative is enhanced in December and April when you will be more than able to practice what you preach. Be on the lookout for blessings that could permanently brighten your life in May and June. ACES ON BRIDGE /BOBBY WOLFF Victor Mollo, as well as being the writer of the collection of stories about the Hideous Hog, also penned a series of books giving vignettes of the top players. As the story goes, in his youth Roger Trezel, a famous French player, was sitting South, playing in a tournament against a woman in the West seat who was wearing a low-cut dress. Trezel found it hard to focus his attention on his cards, especially when he was confronted with today’s declarer - play problem. The normal play in this heart slam is to take two finesses. But the club-three lead posed an additional problem — that of club ruffs. Trezel, fearing a singleton lead, went up with dummy’s club ace, intending to rely on the heart finesse to make the slam. Lo and behold, when he played the ace, the singleton king of clubs fell from East! Trezel had it right, sort of — somebody had a singleton. Now there was no need to risk the heart finesse, as there was a great danger that if the finesse lost, West would give her partner a club ruff. Trezel simply played the heart ace, and now the singleton heart king appeared from West’s hand, so Trezel finished up making all 13 tricks. Later, he overheard his right - hand opponent complaining about his ethics: “From the moment we sat down at the table, that young man was craning his neck, looking unashamedly into my partner’s cards. No wonder we didn’t make either king.” Wednesday, November 10, 2004 The following astrological forecasts should be read for entertainment value only.
