Latin for the Illiterati

I bought this from Borders here in Sydney. A present for the family.

It is a page a day calendar for our breakfast bar. It has " 365 Days of Terms of Endearment, Pithy Insights, Obscure Abbreviations & Legal Terms, Proverbs, Concepts, Aphorisms, & Select Insults of Antiquity."

I thought it would fun ( and educational!) to read a Latin quote each day.

Yesterday's Latin - initio anni - at the beginning of the year.

Today's - spinosus - thorny or prickly.

Another form of educational strewing in our home. :-)

I'll look for this here in the States!

Happy New Year!

Oh, I just love that title! This is going on my must-have list!

You might be able to get it cheap - many calendars go on sale here after the new year...

Cheap is the right price! LOL!

Hopefully, I'll find it this weekend!
