JANUARY 11, 2012 • RIM REVIEW | 5


CRUISING THE GREAT RIVERS River cruising has grown more than 200 percent in the last 10 years. Each year more and more riverboats are added to the cruise lines inventories. Today we will discuss where you can go and the companies to contact for more information. Let’s start with the Mississippi River. In 2008 and 2009 the major riverboat companies closed their doors due to the down economy. This year two companies will begin cruising America’s largest river with two exciting boats, one new and one completely refurbished. American Cruise Lines is in the finishing touches of building a 140passenger paddle wheeler, the Queen of the Mississippi, which will begin cruising the river in August. Visit to learn KEN BROOKS more. The Memphis-based Great American Steamboat Co. is in the final stages of renovation on its 400-passenger Great American Queen, which will be relaunched in April. For details go to Both companies tell us that the cabins will be larger than those on American riverboats in the past and the onboard food will be near gourmet, with local and seasonal selections on the menus. The service crews and officers on both boats will all be American. The entertainment will be as American as apple pie with Dixieland bands, big bands, ballroom dancing and concerts played on the boat’s calliope. These two boats will be competitors and it will be interesting to read the passengers’ comments and travel writers’ reviews. I hope to cruise on one of these myself this year. Both boats will sail between Louisiana and Minnesota on the Mississippi and go as far east as Pittsburgh on the Ohio River. I had the pleasure of experiencing this four years ago and I can guarantee the experience will be well worth the ticket price, which will not be cheap. American crews demand fair wages living in the United States, unlike most of the foreign cruise ships, which employ crews from other nations. River cruising is very popular in Europe. Probably the most popular rivers are the Rhine and Danube. Cruising both the Rhine and Danube allows sightings of the Black Forest and storybook castles located along

the river. And one of the best parts of a river cruise is being able to disembark your boat at the dock in the middle of the towns and cities and either take a sightseeing tour of the local area or simply go into the middle of the town and roam the interesting streets looking for interesting articles to bring back home and perhaps having a bite at a local eatery. There will always be land viewing from your stateroom window as the boat cruises along. Most of the riverboats today are rather large and long, permitting generous size staterooms and offering entertainment, lectures, get-togethers and present fine cuisine in the dining rooms. These boats are quite like a cruise ship today. Most river cruises are from seven to 12 days in duration. The companies that cruise the Rhine are: AMA Waterways, phone 800-626-0126,; Avalon Waterways, phone 877-797-8791,; Grand Circle Travel, phone 800-959-0405,; Tauck, 800-788-7885,; Uniworld, 800-733-7820,; and Viking River Cruises, 800-785-7374, The Danube River is equally as scenic and interesting as the Rhine and the same companies as mentioned above also cruise this waterway. If you can do both in one vacation, do it. With airfares getting higher every month this might not be a bad idea if your pocketbook permits. The Danube is considered the grand dame of rivers stretching from the Black Forest to the Black Sea. This would be one of my choices of the several river cruises that are available. The Seine River passes through Paris, as you know, and this would also make for a wonderful and romantic vacation. You would have time in Paris, docked in the middle of town, to explore the City of Light on your own or take a couple sightseeing tours. A cruise here would take you through the serene Normandy landscapes that inspired Claude Monet. I understand the food presented on the boats is next to gourmet and you would also have time to go ashore and sample the foods in the small restaurants. A trip to Paris and cruise in Normandy will be full of photo opportunities. The boat will be rather small giving you the chance to make new friends enroute. The boat companies that offer the Seine River include Avalon Waterways, Grand Circle Travel,

Uniworld, and Viking River Cruises. By the way, three-quarters of the newly built riverboats will offer more cabins with balconies. A few do now, but it’s nice that more balcony cabins will be available in the future. The Rhone River is food lover’s territory, traveling through the wine regions of Burgundy, the lavender fields of Provence, and the culinary capital of Lyon. All six of the above mentioned riverboat cruise companies offer this region. The Elbe River features rugged cliffs and sandstone formations, flecked with baroque cities and wine villages. Grand Circle Travel and Viking River Cruises offer itineraries through this area. The Douro River in Portugal features terraced vineyards of the world’s oldest demarcated wine country, where sweet sticky port is made. If this is your taste, Uniworld can cruise you here. The Volga River in Russia is gaining popularity, allowing travelers to tour Moscow and then cruise the river past onion-dome cathedrals, fascinating towns and ending in St. Petersburg where there is a selection of great castles and museums to explore. This vacation will last at least seven days. The cruise lines that offer this trip are AMA Waterways, Grand Circle Travel, Uniworld and Viking River Cruises. Gaining popularity also is the Dnieper River in Russia, which allows you to cruise through tranquil countryside — dotted with pine and birch forests — that gives way to the elegant gold domes of Kiev. Viking River Cruises can take you there. You might like to know that Viking River Cruises is the favorite of river travelers. The others do a fine job, however. Another area that is surprisingly gaining popularity is the Mekong River in Southeast Asia. Several newly built vessels are coming on line allowing you to cruise through Vietnam, Cambodia and elsewhere. I have friends that have returned from this area recently and they report that a trip here is most interesting. Only a few years ago we were fighting a major war in this area and now American tourists are visiting. I understand that veterans of that war are returning to see what the countries are like today. River cruising is gaining popularity because it is one of the most enjoyable vacations you can have. Try it this year if you can.


INNER EAR OFTEN CAUSE OF DIZZINESS DEAR DR. DONOHUE: I am 82 and in pretty good health except for a recent problem. During the day everything is fine, but when I lie down to go to sleep, the room starts to spin. It lasts about 10 seconds. Then if I turn my head to look at the clock, the dizziness returns. In the morning when I wake and turn my head again, the room spins. Do I have an inner-ear infection? How can this problem be fixed? — J.C. ANSWER: Although I can’t give you 100 percent assurance, I can say on solid ground that you have benign positional vertigo, BPH. Vertigo is dizziness. BPH is not an inner-ear infection. It comes on just as you have written, with a change in the position of the head — lying down, turning to the side or looking up to a cupboard shelf. The attacks are brief but disrupting. Crystals normally found in one part of the inner ear have migrated to another part. Moving the head activates the displaced crystals, and they send a message to the brain that brings on dizziness. The inner ear is not only for hearing; it’s also for balance.

You can bring the crystals back to their original site through a series of movements called the Epley repositioning maneuvers. Sit on the side of a bed and bend your head to the shoulder on the side that triggers dizziness. Let’s make it the right side, so you can follow the instructions. If it’s the left, just change the direction. With the head turned to the right, lie down so your head projects off the other side of the bed. When dizziness stops, turn the head to the left side, with the left ear facing down. Next, roll over on your left side so the head faces down for 10 to 15 seconds. Finally, return to the sitting position with your head bent slightly down in front. You might have to repeat the procedure more than twice. If this is too confusing, have your family doctor or an ENT doctor put you through the motions. The booklet on vertigo explains the common causes of it and their treatment. To obtain a copy, write: Dr. Donohue — No. 801W, Box 536475, Orlando, FL 328536475. Enclose a check or money order (no cash) for $4.75 U.S./$6 Canada with the recipient’s printed name and address. Please allow four weeks for delivery.

DEAR DR. DONOHUE: Why doesn’t the heart ever get cancer? I’ve never seen this question asked or talked about on TV. Blood feeds tumors, so it makes sense that the heart would be a target. — C.V. ANSWER: Tumors do arise in the heart. A somewhat-common benign tumor is a myxoma. It can disrupt the flow of blood through the heart. Malignant cancers, ones that spread and grow rapidly, also arise in the heart. They are quite rare. A rhabdomyosarcoma is a malignant tumor of heart muscle. The blood contained in the heart doesn’t feed heart muscle. If it did, we’d never have heart attacks. Heart muscle is nourished by its own arteries. So are heart tumors. Dr. Donohue regrets that he is unable to answer individual letters, but he will incorporate them in his column whenever possible.

Healthy Weight Week is Jan. 15 through Jan. 21. Do you know what your healthy weight is? For years our doctors and an occasional magazine article, based on data provided by the insurance industry, doled out that particular piece of information. With today’s boom in the health and diet business, you can get the information in a blink of an eye from the Internet, out of hundreds of books on the market, from gyms and weight loss programs. Maintaining healthy weight is a several-step process. Arguably the most difficult thing about losing weight isn’t losing the weight itself, but keeping it off once it’s been lost. Those who have struggled with their weight often admit their weight fluctuates regularly, illustrating the struggle that maintaining a healthy weight can present. While every person is different, there are ways to keep weight off, and many of them are relatively minor. What these methods all have in common is the commitment level they require. Making a long-term commitment to each of the following changes cannot only help you lose weight, but keep that weight off as well. • Closely monitor fat and sugar intake. Reduce consumption of foods high in fat and sugar, or substitute with reduced-calorie and reduced-fat foods and beverages. The fat in your diet should be limited to 30 percent or less of total calories each day. • Get daily exercise. Exercise comes in many forms, and it’s best to determine what type of physical activity best suits each individual and each lifestyle. Initially, you should work your way up to regular aerobic exercise, such as brisk walking, jogging or swimming, since it is a key factor in achieving permanent weight loss and improving health. For maximum benefits, most health experts recommend exercising 30 minutes or more on most, and preferably all, days of the week. • Be aware of your eating habits. Negative eating habits can include overindulging, eating when bored or looking to food for comfort. Many times people don’t even realize they are routinely treating food in these ways. Keeping a food diary, in which you write down when you eat, what you’re eating and why you’re eating is a good means to discovering just what your eating habits are and determining if they are healthy or not. • Remember the value of balance when planning a diet. Mom, Dad and no doubt school teachers extolled the virtues of a balanced diet, and for good reason. Don’t forget the five food groups (milk, meat, fruit, vegetable, bread) when planning a diet. If you have a specialty diet, due to an existing condition (i.e., diabetes) or lifestyle (i.e., vegetarian), consult with a physician as to how to best balance your diet, as there will no doubt be certain foods that are off limits. MAKE BREAKFAST A PART OF EVERY DAY

Start your day with a meal that helps give healthy eating a jump-start. You can create a versatile, fulfilling breakfast by adding almonds, in all their forms to your morning meal to help provide you with the energy you need. Matthew Biancaniello, master mixologist at the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel’s Library Bar is known for his innovative cocktail creations and use of fresh ingredients. His creativity extends to healthful smoothies that help rev up your metabolism. For an easy smoothie, Biancaniello suggests using almond butter or almond milk for a creamy base with a burst of flavor. “One of my favorite smoothie recipes uses a combination of both almond butter and milk, along with fresh fruit, juices and seasonings for a unique blend that’s sure to get your day going,” says Biancaniello. “It takes no time at all to add and blend the ingredients, and the result is a satisfying drink that you can take with you on the go.” Including a handful of almonds in your breakfast is

Blueberry Smoothie

one simple solution that not only packs a powerful nutritional punch, but also helps keep you satisfied throughout the morning. There are all kinds of ways almonds can help boost your breakfast: • Toss a handful of whole natural almonds and fresh berries into your morning yogurt. • Look for cereals containing crunchy sliced or slivered almonds. • Top whole wheat toast with almond butter and sliced bananas, or spread almond butter onto apple slices. • Use almond milk in your oatmeal, and top with dried or fresh fruit. • Sprinkle sliced almonds into your breakfast parfait layered with low-fat yogurt and fruit. • Toss toasted, sliced almonds into scrambled eggs or a veggie omelet for an extra healthy boost. Try out Biancaniello’s delicious The Southside of Morocco Smoothie recipe to help get your day started, and visit for more recipes and breakfast ideas.

You may have heard the saying that if you take good care of your body, it will take good care of you. Well, taking care of your body is a lot easier when you can enjoy delicious and healthy fresh fruits, such as blueberries. Blueberries are considered a superfood by leading nutrition and medical experts, and are a recommended

diet staple for health, skin care and longevity. Here are just a few of the benefits of this little blue dynamo: • A half-cup of blueberries packs plenty of fiber, vitamin C, potassium and antioxidants into only 40 sweet calories. • Blueberries contain more disease-fighting antioxidants than red wine or green tea. • Half a cup of blueberries a day may help improve brain function. • Some scientific evidence suggests that blueberries may be beneficial for the skin. New skin care treatments include blueberry extracts to help revitalize the skin and hasten healing. • Blueberries provide the same bacteria fighters as cranberries to help guard against urinary tract infections. You can enjoy fresh blueberries all year thanks to blueberries from Chile, where it’s summer during our winter.

Early Hunter Creek history Near Christopher Creek sits the Hunter Creek Ranch subdivision. This gated community has its own water and sewer system, and a certified 100year water supply. But how did it get its name? Here’s a look at it, including a look at one of the forgotten early settlers of this region. A survey was done in 1905 of some of the Christopher Creek area. Isadore Christopher can be found where the TIM EHRHARDT heart of the Christopher Creek area is today, but when looking at where Hunter Creek Ranch is located one finds the Williamson name. This is a name that is not familiar and research has shown an incomplete picture of this family. It appears that it was the home of Nicholas C Williamson, who was born in Illinois in the early 1860s and who would die in Globe on Feb. 24, 1930. Williamson can be found on the 1900, 1910, and 1920 censuses in this area. 1900 is particularly telling, as Christopher is on the next line. Clearly this gentleman was in the Christopher Creek area at that point. He appears to have been single and not gotten married until the decade before his death. There are a couple of other Williamsons, Dan and Al, that can be found mentioned in newspaper clippings in this same era, but it does not appear that they are related to Nicholas. At the time the creek that runs through Hunter Creek Ranch was named Williamson Creek on the 1905 map. Yet it also ran by the place of another early settler — Josine Roxwell Hunter. Hunter would go on to patent land at the junction of today’s Highway 260 and the Colcord Mountain Road, though the land is no longer privately held. This is for whom Hunter Creek Ranch is ultimately named, as the creek would become known as Hunter Creek. Josine Hunter was born March 24, 1865 in Pennsylvania. He first shows up in this region when he voted in 1896 and it is assumed that he was out in the Christopher Creek area at that time, though on his homestead paperwork he states that he settled on the land he would patent in July of 1897. He applied for this patent on Feb. 13, 1908 and received it March 6, 1911. His four witnesses for his patent were William McFadden (for whom McFadden Peak south of Young is named), William Voris, John Henry Thompson and John Wentworth. All four of these gentlemen were notable people during that time. According to his homestead paper-

work, he had been absent from his property once since he settled it — for a year-and-a-half during the SpanishAmerican War. He stated that he was employed as a packer in Puerto Rico during that time, but had someone there to manage the ranch for him. He grew corn, cane and a “little garden truck” on this property, which he lived on with his wife. At the time of his patent, he also held a grazing permit for 240 cattle and owned about six horses and 100 chickens according to the paperwork. Assistant Forest Ranger Claud B. Delbridge recommended his claim for approval on Oct. 18, 1910. Hunter would die on July 28, 1922 in Winslow, Ariz. As for the land on which Hunter Creek Ranch actually sits, it would be patented on Sept. 8, 1925 by William H. Eubank, who was born in Texas and had settled on the land on March 3, 1920 according to his homestead paperwork. Lewis Kohl, Buford Hunt, Lewis Bowman and Charles Allenbaugh were his witnesses. The house that he lived in was on the land at the time he settled there. He grew beans, hay, corn, and some alfalfa in addition to having a garden. Much thanks to the Arizona Heritage Research Foundation for usage of the homestead paperwork that was a source for much of this article. These documents, available for a fee from the National Archives in Washington D.C., provide invaluable information about patented land.

Copies of the Arizona Heritage Research Foundation’s homestead paperwork (above) show maps and signatures from the Hunter Creek area during the late 1800s and early 1900s.




WOE AND BEAUTY ON AN ANCIENT EDGE Grand Canyon’s geology offers solace and an education in time I took a step — a long step — a million years step. Then I stopped, turned and faced north. Perched on the jagged edge of my life, I looked down deep into the shadowed layers of lost worlds — terrible deaths, fractured continents, vanished seas, mass extinctions. Taking a breath, I took another step — a long step — another million years. Curiously, I felt better — my troubles for the moment shrunk to no more than a ledge of Tapeats Sandstone in the wall of the Grand Canyon opposite. A layer of fossilized beach sand laid down 570 million years ago, the Tapeats Sandstone lies atop a mystery of missing stone — dubbed the “Great Unconformity.” I studied that light, crumbling layer of sandstone in the canyon wall just across the way, knowing that all the great, riotous thrust of life that took us from pond scum to troubled writers has taken place since the lapping waves of a vanished sea left that layer of crumbling gray stone on a barren beach. Perched on the wind-tormented branch of a twisted juniper nearby, a glossy black raven croaked at me. “Nevermore,” he gurgled in my mind’s ear. “You raise a good point,” I said to the raven and the wind that rose up out of the canyon’s 1.8-billion-year gash of time. I let loose a breath, a sigh, a puff of steam — frail and fleeting as life in the shadow of so much time. It should have depressed me, to stand so mite-like on the edge of such immensity. All I had dreamed or hoped or failed to do would not amount to a swirl of dust on this crumbling edge. I ought to have felt insignificant. Instead, I felt obscurely better. So I took another step. A long step — a million years. They had not built the Trail Through Time along the edge of the Grand Canyon between the El Tovar and

mented timescale of the planet that sustains us all. This unique cross-section of time comes as a result of the relatively level uplift of the Colorado Plateau in the past 5 million to 8 million years. In most places, such a vast uplift would jumble the buried rock layers. But much of the 130,000 square miles of the Colorado Plateau rose at the rate your fingernails grow without deforming the miles-deep layers of sandstones, limestones and shales laid down on the bottoms of long-vanished seas and deserts. As the Colorado Plateau rose, the northern edge crumpled into the Rocky Mountains. The southern edge dropped away along a 200-mile-long chain of 1,500-foot cliffs — which north of Payson forms the Mogollon Rim. Oak Creek cut back into that rising edge of the plateau to uncover the striking red rock formations of Sedona. The Colorado River did the same thing, but on a grand scale. Many geologists believe the Colorado River originally ran north into a vast, interior sea. But as the Colorado Plateau rose, another river that ran south cut backward until it captured the northflowing ancestral Colorado River, reversing the flow so that it now ran south into the Gulf of California. This capture some 6 million years ago began the process of carving out the Grand Canyon. As the plateau rose, the flood-prone Colorado River cut down through it, like pressing a log up against a chain saw. Meanwhile, the steep tributaries widened the canyon by carrying those soft layers of sedimentary rock down to the main stem of the Colorado. That process started at about the time the genetic evidence suggests humans, chimps and gorillas last shared a common ancestor and continues to this day. As a result of this vast uplift, the relatively young Colorado River has revealed in the walls of the Grand Canyon the long buried history of the Earth going back nearly halfway to its creation. That encompassed the entire period in which life progressed from single celled organisms in the ocean to its present, dazzling complexity. CONTINUED ON PAGE 10




The meander down that Trail Through Time reveals much of that history, preserved in the rock layers and the fossils they contain. Of course, erosion has already removed more than 200 million years of that history, so that the youngest rocks on the rim of the canyon are older than the dinosaurs. A few dominant layers stand out. Near the top, the fossilized desert sand dunes of the light Coconino Sandstone bear witness to a vast desert that covered the Southwest some 260 million years ago. At that time, what would become North America was part of a “supercontinent” that gathered almost all the dry land on the planet into a single mass. In the middle of the canyon, lies the great, blood-red wall of Redwall Limestone, formed on the bottom of a shallow sea between 300 million and 400 million years ago. Today, the fused layers of microscopic skeletons of ancient sea creatures forms a sheer 500-foot-tall band of cliffs that pose the greatest single barrier to reaching the canyon bottom from the rim. All of the trails to the bottom must pass through fault lines in the Redwall Limestone, stained red by iron oxides leaching out of the layers above. Farther down, the easily eroded Bright Angel Shale forms the shelf above the 1,800-foot-deep inner gorge. Shales form on shallow sea bottoms, compared to the deeper marine environments that create limestones. Most of the trails in the canyon run along its wide shelf. Formed 530 million years ago, the Bright Angel Shale represents the era when trilobites ruled the world. Just below the Bright Angel Shale lies the Great Unconformity, where erosion in the inconceivably distant past removed 1.2 billion years worth of rock. This records another period of uplift, when erosion carried off layers of rock many times higher than Mt. Everest. Below that unconformity, the story continues — down through a dozen more layers in the inner gorge, each one mounted alongside the trail and polished smooth. The Grand Canyon Supergroup spans the period between 570 million and 1.2 billion years ago, again recording the meanderings of the continents and the ebb and flow of oceans, as the planet breathes in, breathes out. After another, smaller unconformity, the river finally reveals the inconceivably ancient Vishnu Schist and Zoraster Granite. The schists started as sandstone, limestone and shale, before they were buried, reheated and fused into this dense, primordial rock. The Zoraster Granite ooze up from the molten depths of the Earth, forming veins revealed finally by the relentlessly downcutting river. I could not see the metamorphosed Vishnu Schist from my perch atop the rim, but I have seen it on raft trips in the dark heart of the canyon where it has been fluted and carved and sandblasted by eons of floods. Finally I stood stock still, my breath coming still in moist, warm, puffs as the planet spun so that the dust of the atmosphere gave the sun’s long light a warm red glow, reflected off the ancient worlds across the way. My raven friend — or one of his kin — flew past with an audible whoosh of his wings, then banked to consider the possibilities. He croaked, that guttural warble that only ravens dare. Odds are, he noted my proximity to the edge and so paused to ponder my potential as carrion. But I prefer to think that he felt our shared pulse of life and caught the updraft of my yearning. In either case, he settled on the branch of a weirdly stunted ponderosa pine nearby and we shared the sunset. The shadows rose up out of the canyon, swallowing continents and oceans. I kept my gaze on the glow of the Redwall Limestone until the shadow took it, then shifted to the luminous yellow of the Coconino Sandstone. For I came to the canyon full of woe holding my life in my fingernails, my heart in the shadows. But now my troubles seemed fleeting, the world full of marvels, my life aglow like that desert turned to sandstone in the last light of day. My breath came in a puff, transparent but warm in the still, cold air. “Nevermore,” quoth the raven, “nevermore.”

When cold weather hits, so do comfort-food cravings. And although comfort foods like cookies and quesadillas taste great, they’re not so great for your waistline. To help you satisfy your cravings without winter weight gain, here are some tasty tips from “Hungry Girl” Lisa Lillien’s new book, Hungry Girl Supermarket Survival: Aisle by Aisle, HG-Style! • Check out the seasonal options of tea bags that pop up during the holidays, such as candy cane or sugar cookie. You’ll get sweet satisfaction without all the calories. • Dunk-a-fruit. Grab some orange segments and dip them in a sugar-free vanilla pudding snack cup. Or, plunge some apple slices into no-sugar-added caramel pudding. • Portion-controlled cheeses are ideal for proteinpacked snacking on the go. Mini Babybel® Light cheeses come in a protective red wax that makes them perfect for tossing into your purse to fuel your various shopping excursions. • It’s easy to overdo it when pouring dressing straight from the bottle onto your salad. And those calories add up fast if you double or triple the serving size. So portion out a serving first, and consider using the dip-don’t-pour method to make it go further. • To make the most of a single serving of brown rice, stir in tons of diced veggies, fresh or thawed from frozen. Peas, carrots, bean sprouts, broccoli, coleslaw, shredded cabbage and finely chopped cauliflower are all great for this. Another tip? Don’t make rice your main course. Fill your plate with lean protein and veggies and then enjoy a serving of fluffy rice on the side. • For a spreadable, meltable, super-creamy and deliciously mild snack, try The Laughing Cow® Light Cheese Wedges, each with 35 calories and 1.5 to 2 grams of fat. They can be spread on apple or pear slices or even used in a gooey-good quesadilla recipe. For more tasty ideas to keep you satisfied, visit and

The simple ritual of sitting down for nightly dinners with the family is no longer a thing of the past. More and more families are reaping the multiple benefits it offers, including the enjoyment of a home-cooked meal and meaningful discussions about the day. While family dinners encourage us to stay connected to loved ones, keeping up with busy schedules and making nutrition a priority is a challenge that many families face year after year. According to the Rice-a-licious Global Omnibus Survey 2010, 53 percent of consumers “would make a healthier meal” if they had time. Experts say that simple changes and the right items in your grocery cart can lead to an easier and healthier way to prepare great-tasting meals for your family. “Beginning your meal with rice opens your family’s dinner plate to healthy eating because rice acts as a powerful tool that attracts colorful vegetables, savory spices and leaner cuts of meat,” says registered dietitian and chef Michele Powers. “Remember to look for recipes that include rice to create delicious and nutritious meals for your family.” And for those families that are time-crunched, Uncle Ben’s Ready Rice products are a simple solution. Ready to eat in just 90 seconds, they can be enjoyed as part of a balanced meal plan with zero grams trans fat and zero saturated fat.

ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Guess what, Lamb? You’re about to experience a new perspective on a situation you long regarded quite differently. What you learn could open more opportunities later. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) The Bold Bovine is tempted to charge into a new venture. But it might be best to take things one step at a time, so that you know just where you are at any given point. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) It’s a good time to go on that fun getaway you’ve been planning. You’ll return refreshed, ready and, yes, even eager to tackle the new challenge that awaits you. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) The Moon Child loves to fantasize about magical happenings in the early part of the week. But the sensible Crab gets down to serious business by week’s end. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) What goes around comes around for those lucky Leos and Leonas whose acts of generosity could be repaid with opportunities to expand into new and exciting areas of interest. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Your concern about your job responsibilities is commendable. But you need to take some quiet time to share with someone who has really missed being with you. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Aspects favor getting out and meeting new people. And as a bonus, you might find that some of your newly made friends could offer important business contacts. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) You might take pride in wanting to do everything yourself. But now’s a good time to ask family members to help with a demanding personal situation. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Pay more attention to the possibilities in that workplace change. It could show the way to make that long-sought turn on your career path. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Your need to succeed might overwhelm obligations to your loved ones. Ease up on that workload and into some well-deserved time with family and friends. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Love rules for amorous Aquarians who can make good use of their ability to communicate feelings. Don’t be surprised if they’re reciprocated in kind. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Fishing for compliments? No doubt, you probably earned them. But it’s best to let others believe they were the ones who uncovered the treasure you really are. BORN THIS WEEK: Your good works flow from an open, generous heart. Nothing makes you happier than to see others happy as well. © 2012 King Features Synd., Inc.
