Helios was an alternate early name for Apollo, the sun god in Greece and Rome. Later in Rome he also became Sol or Sol Invictus. Here you go. This covers it pretty well. I rather like that name for Apollo actually. I never did like the Roman names as much.

Helios - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

In the first century AD "helios" meant "sun", as in the bright thing in the sky. Just to check I had it right I looked up Moulton's Analytical Greek Lexicon, 1978. Must admit, my Greek is not up to the classical philosophers of the 5th century BC, and even the first century BC is somewhat obscure.

I accept Helios as a personification name of a god because although I have not actually read much about this god I know that was the kind of thing they did in those days.

That isn't food. I was given rhubarb pie one time. I took one bite
My grandmother's Thanksgiving specialty. 43 times I had to force it down. And smile. Then I got more because I smiled.

There isn't enough sugar on earth to make rhubarb pie taste good.

The smell is (to me) like overcooked brocolli or Brussels Sprouts.
Must be the southern stuff. The collards at my greengrocer are quite mild along the order of bok choi.

I have to ask - why would someone ruin a good strawberry pie by putting rhubarb in it?

It was the power of the grip ($0.00) and the power of the card ($0.00) and the power of the DA 50/1.8 ($0.00) and the power of the shipping ($0.00) that blinded me to the full depth of my depraved act.

Once in the clutches of the hociR, I was then set upon by the amgiS who forced upon me a 17-70/2.8-4 DC Macro HSM (Contempory) as well. Woe is me, for my credit is undone!


Steve

P.S. Anyone know of a good home for (what will be) a lightly-used DA 50/1.8? I have so many fast 50s and don't really use AF much.

Well... if the strawberries have enough tartness to them, there's no reason, but if they're just sticky sweet, the rhubarb gives them some character.

You have to have something to put your teeth on edge...and your children's teeth...and your grandchildren's teeth...to the third and fourth generation!

Happy would be good. Right now, I am thinking maybe it is time to start trying to monetize some of my photos.

I've always wondered why anyone would ruin a rhubarb pie by putting strawberries in it. Rhubarb pie is one of nature's perfect foods; right up there with donuts, cheeseburgers, bbq ribs and bacon.

Rhubarb and apple is good too. (Wife will eat that if there is enough apple! - straight rhubarb, not so much)
For me, rhubarb any way that it comes is GOOD.
