Daily Lesson 5

Greetings and Farewells
Rather than using the standard "hello" and "goodbye", or the more informal
"hi" and "bye" (or worse, "wassup" and "later"), try some of the
     "Good morrow!"
     "Fair day!"
     "Good morn/day/even!" (depending, of course, on time of day)
     "How fare ye?"
     "How now, milady/milord?"
     "Fare thee well!"
     "God be with ye!"  (from which comes our modern "goodbye")
     "Safe journey!"  (to those who are traveling)
     "I bid thee adieu!"

Shakespearian Word/Phrase of the Day:
Belike - probably
     "Belike, 'tis naught more than a loose shutter that doth rattle with
the wind."

Nunc est bibendum.
Politicians prefer unarmed peasants.
