    > We predict that the garden in Utsjoki, Finland will bloom on June
    15,1997. We have a question. You say that Utsjoki, Finland has a
    longitude of 26.90 W. Finland is not west of Greenwich but east so how
    come you say that his longitude is west. On my computer, Utsjoki's
    longitude is 27.13 East. I hope that you are going to answer us because
    we are participating in the Mystery classes and all our longitudes are
    going to be wrong if you think that Finland is west of Greenwich.
