        Speaking in the Unique Lives & Experiences series sponsored by The Cincinnati Enquirer, Ms. MacLaine related one of the synchronistic events that has affected her life.

        She was preparing for a trip when she saw something in the eyes of her pet dog, Terry, warning her not to go, she said.

        “I canceled the trip, and something happened to the airplane,” Ms. MacLaine said.

        Ms. MacLaine is the author of nine best-selling books She won Best Actress in 1984 for Terms of Endearment.

        At one point she asked her audience of 2,700: “Did you guys vote for George Bush?” She paused for the applause, and then said, “Sorry.”
