Bestiaria Latina Podcasts: Today's audio podcast is Fabula: De Equo et Leone, the story of the horse who managed to escape the mercies of Dr. Lion.

Proverbiis Pipilo: You can see my Twitter feed, full of proverbs while I am online each day - here's a recent rhyming proverb that I really liked: Inanis venter non audit verba libenter.

Latin Proverb of the Day: Today's proverb is Horae volant (English: The hours are flying by - a very appropriate proverb on the occasion of my birthday today, as time does fly by!). 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 γὰρ φρονῶν εὖ, πάντα συλλαβὼν ἔχει (English: He who thinks clearly has everything at hand - a proverb that could serve as the moral to the famous fable about Simonides and the shipwreck). 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 PASTORIS PUERO ET AGRICOLIS (the story of the boy who cried "wolf!"). 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 41: De Urso et Alveari, the story of the bear who attacked the beehive!
