I use those words daily -- I just wish I knew what they mean...

I find that obscure expressions sometimes become clearer when spoken aloud.

Mebbe 'cuz it's straight Latin, rather than some schoolboy-goofing-around version.

"Google is your friend".

Ron: google the original and see what pops up.... "nobile dem is trux"....

I know about the "fortibus es" poem.
(if you post the whole thing, I'll bet Ron could translate it more easily)

However, I don't know Billy personally, so I can't say he's a friend of mine.
Ergo, I'm not getting the "tuum amici" thing.
(and googling it didn't get me anywhere)


I give up. Please enlighten me...


Meanwhile, always remember what your mother told you:
Semper ubi sub ubi.

Well, Laurie, maybe your mother told you that, but mine always said to wear clean underwear -- kind of a "just in case" type thing...
