Just a random link here.

Emperor Pharr's new clothes

Hello All

This is a terrific forum.

I've been reading the Pharr book "Homeric Greek A book for Beginners" and I want to register my advice to beginners: I don't believe this is truly a book for beginners.

Mortem Vitae Sequens?

Hello...again.

Hi, everybody!

After about three months of seasonal work and one month of vacation, I'm finally home and settling back into my routines again. I did my first lesson of Latin today, and I'm really looking forward to setting up a regular schedule for studying it. Thank goodness, I can do that now. :)

It's good to be back!
