Bestiaria Latina Podcasts: Today's audio podcast is Fabula: De Leone Sene, the story of the old lion and the donkey's revenge.

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: Stulti est compedes, licet aureas, amare (another saying about preferring freedom to fortune).

Latin Proverb of the Day: Today's proverb is Cervus ad sagittam properat (English: The stag rushes into the arrow - a proverb about being your own worst enemy, as we so often are). 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 Ἅπαντα ὁ λιμὸς γλυκέα, πλῆν ἁυτοῦ, ποιεῖ (English: Hunger makes everything sweet, except for itself... a sly variation on hunger being the best sauce!). 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.

Fable of the Day: Today's fable of the day from Barlow's Aesop is DE CANE ET BOVE (the famous story of the dog in the manger). 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.

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 31: De Vulpe et Aquila, the story of how the fox rescued her pups from the eagle.

New Aesop Video. I've created a new Aesop video, this time for the fable of the mountain that gave birth to a mouse. If you are reading this through email or RSS, you might need to visit the blog to see the video playing!
