Latin Blog?

Latin Blog?
OK, for all you Latin nerds and nerdettes out there....Here is my son's Latin professor's blog: SputaTilica, aka Blogula mea ("my blog").  My son thinks this is extremely cool.  It's all Greek to me (so to speak.)Bonus points for the first person who can give me a translation of SputaTilica (I think it has something to do with spit....)
