      Note: Here, in the last sense, is sometimes used before a
               verb without subject; as, Here goes, for Now (something
               or somebody) goes; -- especially occurring thus in
               drinking healths. [bd]Here's [a health] to thee,

      {Here and there}, in one place and another; in a dispersed
            manner; irregularly. [bd]Footsteps here and there.[b8]
            --Longfellow.
  
      {It is neither, here nor there}, it is neither in this place
            nor in that, neither in one place nor in another; hence,
            it is to no purpose, irrelevant, nonsense.
