And I answered "Comparative Mythology" to that one on the grounds that it
was the only one I knew anything at all about. :-)

Well, I have to now admit that the latest I've *noticed* it was about 9pm.
On the other hand, why it comes around at all in the middle of winter is
beyond me.  You may be right about Shine; this is, after all, a somewhat

You know, I never noticed that before.  Interesting indeed!
