Round-Up: March 3

Here is a round-up of today's blog posts (you can browse through previous round-ups at the Bestiaria Latina Blog archives). You can keep up with the latest posts by using the RSS feed, or you can subscribe by email. Today's proverb is Tranquillo quilibet gubernator est. In English: When it's calm, anybody can be the helmsman. Listen to the audio, and find out just why it is perfectly good Latin to call Arnold Schwarzenegger the "Governator." Verses: Here is some more audio for the Vulgate Verses book - just the audio, but there is a link to a page where you can get English notes and commentary on these verses also.
