Thanks Peter; so for a crossword answer to "winged goddess of the dawn" or daughter of Hyperion the three letter answer is Eos. Now where did you learn that from?

And exactly where is 44.3N, -79.35W in ON Canada. I am in Brooklin (Whitby) ON, 45 mins. east of the big smoke TO.

44.3N, -79.35W is in Sutton Ont.

Keep meaning to get out Brooklin way again, the Iroquois Shoreline raptor/bird lookout platform is in the nearby Heber Down Conservation Area.

The mythology part is the accidental rmembering of ancient studies from long ago.

PeterP; if you ever come this way call ahead, (905) 655-4470, I'd love to go there with you. I may even take a trip there when the sun shines again. I think we are getting the remains of Rita, and I've got a house to sit in. I can't imagine what those poor people in the south are going through.

Nice talking to you
