Myrtle Station is a community in the Town of Whitby, Durham Region, Ontario, Canada.
Myrtle Station is located approximately one kilometre north of the community of Myrtle. In 1884, the Canadian Pacific Railway (CPR) built a rail line between Toronto and Montreal through the area. A railway station was constructed and the community that grew in the vicinity was known as Myrtle Station. The community was originally part of Whitby Township and became part of the Town of Whitby when the two municipalities amalgamated in 1968. From 1994 until 2004 Myrtle Station hosted the annual Grasstock music and arts festival.
The CPR line remains, but now ends in Havelock.

Geography

Grmeč

Location in BiH

Location
Bosnia and Herzegovina

Parent range
Dinaric Alps

Grmeč (Cyrillic: Грмеч) is a mountain in north-western Bosnia and Herzegovina. It is more than 60 kilometres long, stretching between the city of Bihać and the town of Ključ. The highest peak of Grmeč is Crni vrh (“Black Peak”) at 1,605 metres (5,266 ft) above sea level.[1] Grmeč is surrounded by the city of Bihać and towns Bosanski Petrovac, Ključ, Sanski Most, and Bosanska Krupa.
Grmeč is the best-known place of bullfights in the Balkans. They are called the Corrida of Grmeč (Grmečka korida) and have been organised on every first Sunday in August for over 200 years, attracting thousands of visitors. These are fights between bulls themselves and there is no death of a bull. Fights happen in an empty field. The Corrida of Grmeč was depicted by the sculptor Slobodan Pejić.[2] The sculpture of two bulls in a fight, made in bronze in 2004, has been compared to a confrontation of the oppressor and the oppressed or of the Bosnian people and the Austrian Emperor.[3]

Emund Eriksson

King of Sweden

Reign
970

House
House of Munsö

Religion
Pagan

Emund Eriksson (?- c. 970), (English: Edmund), was a Swedish king of disputed historicity. According to Adam of Bremen, Emund was allied with Harold Bluetooth. Adam of Bremen only gives Eric the Victorious as successor to Emund, but he does not tell how they were related. He may very well have been the brother of Björn (III) Eriksson, who the Norse sagas name as the father of Eric the Victorious. This would have been in accordance with the Germanic system of co-rulership (Diarchy) in which two brothers were elected kings, and which was evidently used by the Swedes.
