Proverbiis Pipilo: You can see my Twitter feed, full of proverbs while I am online each day - here's that famous saying about the shoemaker sticking to shoes: Ne supra crepidam sutor.

Greek Proverb of the Day: Today's proverb is Ἑῖς ἀνὴρ οὐ πάνθ' ὁρᾷ (English: One man cannot see everything - although learning to let others 'see' for you is a real challenge, too!).

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 17: Agricola et Ciconia, the story of the farmer who caught a stork hanging out with the wrong crowd.

Bestiaria Latina Podcasts: Today's audio podcast is Fabula: De Lupo et Grue, the wonderful story of the ungrateful wolf and the even more foolish crane.
