Bestiaria Latina Podcasts: Today's audio podcast is Fabula: De Aucupe et Perdice, the story of the birdcatcher and the treacherous partridge.

Proverbiis Pipilo: You can see my Twitter feed, full of proverbs while I am online each day - here's a good one about following the path of moderation: Mediam viam elige.

Latin Proverb of the Day: Today's proverb is Fortuna imperatrix mundi (English: Fortune is the empress of the world - which features a great use of the feminine title, imperatrix). You can use the Javascript to include the Latin proverb of the day automatically each day on your webpage or blog. Meanwhile, to read a brief essay about this proverb, visit the AudioLatinProverbs.com website.

Greek Proverb of the Day: Today's proverb is Ὁ ἔχων πολὺ πέπερι, τίθησι κἂν λαχάνοις (English: Someone who has a lot of pepper even puts it on his vegetables - a great saying for me, since I am very extravagant with pepper in the kitchen!). You can use the Javascript to include the Greek proverb of the day automatically each day on your webpage or blog - and each Greek proverb also comes with a Latin version.

Latin Via Fables: Simplified Fables: I'm now presenting the "Barlow Aesop" collection, fable by fable, in a SIMPLIFIED version (same story, but in simpler sentences) - with a SLIDESHOW presentation to go along with it, too. Today's Simplified fable is Fable 12: Pastoris Puer et Agricolae, the story of the boy who cried "Wolf!"

Fable of the Day: Today's fable of the day from Barlow's Aesop is DE DELPHINO ET SMARIDE (the story of the mean dolphin and the doomed little fish). You can use the Javascript to include the fable of the day automatically each day on your webpage or blog - meanwhile, to find out more about today's fable, visit the Ning Resource Page, where you will find links to the text, commentary, as well as a discussion board for questions and comments. This is the story that provides the image which you see on the cover of the book!
