Bestiaria Latina Podcasts: Today's audio podcast is Fabula: De Cane Mordaci, the story of the dog who mistook his punishment for praise.

Proverbiis Pipilo: You can see my Twitter feed, full of proverbs while I am online each day - here's a recent one I really liked: Optimus magister bonus liber.

Latin Proverb of the Day: Today's proverb is Non verbis sed rebus (English: Not with words, but with things - in other words, talk is cheap!). 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 Ἀνερρίφθω κῦβος (English: the die is cast - which is even better known in the words of Julius Caesar at the Rubicon: iacta alea est in Latin). 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 15: Auceps et Palumbes, the story of the birdcatcher who turned from predatory into prey!

Fable of the Day: Today's fable of the day from Barlow's Aesop is DE URSO ET DUOBUS VIATORIBUS (a great story of what two men learn about their friendship when they are ambushed by a bear). 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.
