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. 🙂
