    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. ``Here's [a health] to thee, Dick.''

       --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.
