Latin Proverb of the Day: Today's proverb is Aut rex aut asinus (English: Either a king or a donkey). You can use the Javascript to include the Latin proverb of the day automatically each day on your webpage, blog, or wiki. Meanwhile, to read a brief essay about this proverb, visit the AudioLatinProverbs.com website.

AudioLatin.com: Proverbs: Here is the audio for 10 more Latin proverbs from Latin Via Proverbs - just the audio, but there is a link to a page where you can get English translations and commentary on the proverbs, too. Today's group includes the famous "all roads lead to Rome" - Omnes viae ad Romam ferunt.

Vulgate Verses. The Vulgate Verses book is now available (from Lulu Publishers), and I'm commenting on various verses included in that book for their special qualities in Latin. Today's verse is Caeci sunt duces caecorum, which features a great example of a split predicate phrase wrapped around the verb.

How-To Technology Tips. For those of you interested in great free tools for publishing online, I've created a blog where I'm posting tips on the tools that I use. Today's post is about Adding Widgets to Desire2Learn and Using Inline Styles to Change the Widget's Appearance.

Latin Via Fables: I've added a Perry fable type, with a Latin version by Steinhowel plus an illustration, to the blog today. This time it is Perry 74, the story of the stag fooled by his own reflection.
