as we prepare to make our last performance, we read each other horoscopes, and the scorpio's one says all about what we are intending with our work...
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Most discussions on TV news shows involve
so-called experts shouting simplistic opinions at each other. They may
provide some meager entertainment value, but are rarely enlightening. In
contrast to these paltry spectacles were the salons at Paris's Cafe
Guerbois in 1869. A group of hard-working artists and writers gathered

manufacturers in Shanghai, we present to you our very best sincere
regards, desiring to find out if there is a chance for us to be your top-rate
conveyor belt supplier." I wrote back, thanking them for their friendly
inquiry. I said that personally I didn't have any need of conveyor belts
right now, but I told them I would check with my Leo readers to see if
they might. According to my reading of the astrological omens, you see,
you're entering a time when it makes sense to expand and refine your
approach to work. It'll be a good time, for example, to get more efficient
and step up production. So how about it? Do you need any conveyor
