Mid-August brought issues of
income to your attention, with these
gaining in prominence during late
September and early October.
Financially, general opportunities for
better conditions improve, favouring
pay applications and the acquisition
of goods. Some of these take time to
develop, with those emerging during
October being reliable but requiring
patience until May 2010.
Virgoans tend to feel a touch
disadvantaged during the coming
month perhaps contributing to a slow
start to important and imminent new
beginnings. Whilst there are
undoubtedly issues with which you
need to contend, the first half of
October brings the prospect of
extremely fortunate conditions for
work that take eight months to foster.
The month ahead is one during
which you'll need help or some rest
and recreation, following recent
problems you've faced. You need to
make the most of this time, for what is
created here has the potential to
flourish quickly following September
18. Requests are successful in late
September and early October.
Scorpios may have experienced
delays to their social plans and
ambitions during the past month, but
this is the preparatory stage for the new
beginnings that emerge during the
month ahead. Following September 29,
the pace of these interests picks up and
progress is made. Long-range goals and
associations are fostered then, with
more to come in May 2010.
The prelude to activities during
the coming month began on August
18, accelerating into high activity
during the last week of September
and early October. These revolve
around responsibilities, work interests
and health. The ensuing two weeks
lay the groundwork for long-term
career patterns, so it is particularly
important to structure activities
The growth of creativity,
talent and good fortune is set to
shape Taurean lives during the
coming month, which is a relief
following recent tensions and
obstacles you've faced. Something
that's been on hold for a number of
weeks takes off in late September,
magnifying this potential and leading
to better things.
Your home or domestic life is
being reshaped during the coming
month, perhaps forced along this path
by necessity. You've had plans in mind
since mid-August, and these take off
during late September. However,
you'll need to work at shaping and
controlling these influences during
October: positive results ensue.
New routines are being
developed during the coming month,
following some of the obstacles
you've encountered in the past few
weeks. You'll need to look at the
economics of this situation but seem
to have things well in hand. A
business joint venture or agreement
to work more cohesively with your
spouse paves the way to more reliable
The potential for economic
growth is high in Sagittarian charts
during the coming month, but this will
proceed at a slow pace. Initial plans
are being laid down during October 2-
19, perhaps dependent upon
communications originating in mid-
August that develop more fully during
the last week of September and early
Your mind is particularly active
during the coming month, as you deal
with challenging questions, financial
matters, health and work related
interests. Patience is required as
delays in communications are
indicated until after September 29.
Longer range delays are also indicated
as preparations for legal or academic
interests, or travel plans develop
The frustrations that precede
them stimulate new financial
arrangements during the coming
month, with such interests as
partnership income, inheritance,
superannuation, insurance and debts
being central to these processes.
Progress comes in steps, with a
revisitation to matters of early to mid-
October during autumn and winter
Love relationships and business
partnerships are set to bloom during
the month ahead, injecting new life
into long-standing associations. It
won't be long before any feelings of
loneliness and isolation vanish: in the
meantime, you'll need to be content
with the shared activities you already
enjoy. Important partnership events
are indicated during October 2-19.

Hollywood comes to Cleveland. I was
amazed to read about filming of the
third Narnia movie taking place at
Cleveland and also at MovieWorld.
The movie, Voyage of the Dawntreader is not
due out until December next year, but it will be
great to see the local area up on our big screen
here when it finally arrives.
I have already spoken to Fox films about
special events and even tried to get the World
Premiere at our cinemas but they have said that
will not be likely to happen but we will get a
special premiere screening of some type.
It is school holiday time again. Please
remember that kids prices are $4.50 all the time
and that it is no cheaper to come during the day
on a Tuesday than it is any other weekday.
I mentioned in a previous column about the
large amount of 3D movies coming soon.
For these school holidays we have two movies
The first is the new Disney / Pixar film called UP.
This film tells the story of 78-year-old Carl
Frederickson who ties thousands of balloons to
his home so he can fly away and see the wilds of
South America. However an 8- year- old boy
stows away in his house and joins him on the
The other 3D movie is called G-Force. The film,
produced by Jerry Bruckheimer is the story of a
team of trained secret agent guinea pigs that
take on a mission for the US Government. They
have to save the world from an evil billionaire
who wants to take over the world.
We will also have non 3D versions of these
films screening at our cinemas.
Thank you to all the people who responded to
my last column asking for people who had
previously worked in cinemas to contact me.
I have spoken with a number of people
including former usherettes from Sydney and
Brisbane and a retired projectionist.
If you are interested in old cinemas and
theatres have a look at www.caths.org.au
A reminder that we have hearing help
available at the cinemas. We have an infra red
system in all our cinemas and have two types of
equipment that we can loan to patrons who
need assistance. One is a basic set of
headphones that picks up the sound signal and
put it through the headphones.
The other is a personal inductive loop that a
patron wears around their neck, that picks up the
signal and sends it to a hearing aid via their
T switch. The cinemas, foyers and toilets also
have full disabled access.
I look forward to seeing you soon At The
Food to keep the kids happy
When you begin a new Sudoku, some of the
squares will already have numbers in them, and
will have a grey background. The easier the
Sudoku, the more numbers will be provided for
you. These grey squares cannot be altered. The
rules for Sudoku are simple, fill all the empty
squares so that the numbers 1 to 9 appear once
in each of the nine columns, each of the rows, and
each of the nine boxes.

WRITTEN by English mother of three
and author Annabel Karmel, this
attractively presented recipe
collection is subtitled 100 quick and easy
meals for a healthy happy child.
I'm making two assumptions about this
book: one - it's classed as food for kids
because little ones like to eat with their
fingers and this books is all about finger
food, and two - Karmel's children are pint-
sized foodies. Some of the foods on offer
here would not look out of place at a cocktail
Easy to prepare and equally quick to
make, there are a range of treats from
savoury to sweet which are ideal for parties
or even the school lunchbox.
Carrot, coconut and pineapple muffins
are a favourite as are the yoghurt, orange
and lemon min cupcakes, and the tortilla
pizza Margherita is quick and tasty.
But the chicken tikka skewers, smoked
salmon rolls and coconut prawns are
probably more suited to bigger kids.
While there are lots of ideas for kids, you
can also find inspiration for home catering at
your next party or even a lazy evening in
front of the TV.
