Here \Here\, adv. [OE. her, AS. h?r; akin to OS. h?r, D. hier,
OHG. hiar, G. hier, Icel. & Goth. h?r, Dan. her, Sw. h["a]r;

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.''

{Here and there}, in one place and another; in a dispersed
manner; irregularly. ``Footsteps here and there.''

{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.
