Here's a new mnemonic by Peter Hobbs for remembering the geographical position of Niagara Falls in relation to the two Great Lakes that suround it. Just recall the name of the company that makes "washing" powder:

" L E N O R "

(Left) - Erie - Niagara - Ontario (Right)

"Left" refers to west on a map, and "Right" denotes east. The same mnemonic (LENOR) can also be used to recall that the St.Lawrence river flows eastward from the last of the five Great Lakes to the sea:

Lakes: - Erie - Niagara - Ontario - River (St.Lawrence)
