But many guests don’t get the point. One person came in saying he had been suffering from the flu and was still feeling under the weather, so we should keep our distance. He then proceeded to pick through the nut bowl, even though there was a ladle in it. I threw the rest of the nuts in the trash and hoped other guests hadn’t been contaminated. Please remind people that their hands don’t belong in a shared bowl unless they’ve just scrubbed for surgery. Thanks. — Staying Healthy Dear Healthy: Many people, sick or well, don’t consider that sticking their fingers into a shared bowl of snacks can transmit the

Tomorrow’s Horoscope
WEDNESDAY, MARCH 27, 2013 By adopting the adage “Waste not, want not,” by this time next year you could find yourself in an exceptionally secure financial position, one that you never thought possible. Try it and see for yourself. ARIES (March 21-April 19) -You shouldn’t expect others to act in a reasonable manner when you behave otherwise. Try to handle things with logic, not emotions. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) -- The only sure way to achieve success is to roll up your sleeves and do everything yourself. Depending on others to get things done might produce mediocre results. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) -- It behooves you to be democratic and bow to the will of the majority. If you’re too demanding, you can expect some serious trouble to arise. CANCER (June 21-July 22) -- Trying to bluff your way through a serious assignment isn’t likely to work. To be on the safe side, play it straight and get help if you need to. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) -- Be extremely careful that you don’t get hot under the collar should a discussion get intense. There’s nothing to gain from losing your cool. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) -What works for someone else won’t necessarily do so for you, especially when it comes to your financial affairs. Do what is best suited for your situation. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) -Before getting angry, consider the source of unpleasant information being relayed to you. Use collected thinking to soothe your feelings and subdue your response. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) -- Be extra safety-conscious when performing any kind of distasteful task. If you lose your patience and get careless, you’ll create needless problems. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) -- Do what you can to avoid a group that includes an individual whom you dislike. If you’re more impatient than usual, a confrontation could erupt. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) -- Usually your sense of humor is in good taste, but today could be an exception. Chances are, if you’re not careful, you could say or act in a manner that others find unsavory. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) -- Watch your temper and don’t blow things out of proportion. You could create problems for some innocent people. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) -- Regardless how rosy a financial presentation appears, it would be best to check things out for yourself before investing in it. It could be all talk and no substance.
