Sanctus Silvester: New Year's Eve. The saint's day celebrated on December 31 is Saint Silvester, and in some Catholic countries, the New Year's Eve celebrations are called by the saint's name (much as we celebrate "Valentine's Day" using the name of the saint for the holiday). In honor of Saint Silvester, I've published my favorite of the legends about Silvester: how he tamed a foul and deadly dragon! You can read the legend of Saint Silvester and the Dragon here, in Latin and in Caxton's English translation, too!
Ning Blog: I've posted something that might be of interest in my Ning Blog, "Sharing Materials at Quia.com" - an explanation of how the real power of Quia.com resides in sharing materials and adapting other people's materials for your own purposes!
Bestiaria Latina Podcasts: Today's audio podcast is Latin Via Proverbs: Group 8, which includes one of my favorite sayings: Ex granis acervus (I call this a proverb for bloggers: if you blog every day, slowly but surely you end up with a big heap of materials!).
Latin Via Fables: Grammar Commentary: I'm presenting the "Barlow Aesop" collection, fable by fable, with my commentary on each (a more expanded commentary than is possible within the confines of the book). Today's grammar commentary is Fable 66: Leo et Quattuor Tauri, the story of the four bulls and how the lion managed to defeat them.
