Greetings and a Happy Yule Season to All!

Here is a copy of my Florilegium article for December describing what
is new in the Florilegium this month.

There is a lot of interesting, good information being passed around
on the multitude of SCA oriented mail lists that are out there now.
Unfortunately, the number of these lists has grown so large that no
one person can read all of them. It seems a shame to have much of
this useful information be seen by only a few people or have the
same questions get asked and answered over and over. If you are on
a public list and an article or good series of messages comes
across it that you think others in the SCA community would find
interesting, please consider sending it to me for possible inclusion
in the Florilegium. Unless requested not to, I will give credit to
the folks who take the time to do this. And, as always, I strive
to make sure the original author gets credit for their work.


A Blending of the Past and Present

Over the past thirteen years in an ongoing effort, I have been collecting
bits of useful information from various newsgroups, mail lists and
articles submitted to me by their authors. In order to make this
information available to others, I have placed this information in
a series of files I call Stefan's Florilegium.

The Florilegium is on the web at: http://www.florilegium.org

A copy of my complete filelist is available in most sections of the
website. This filelist or any of my files is also available from me
by email in either Word or text formats.

If you find a bad link or other problem with the Florilegium website,
please let me know. Once I know about a problem I can usually fix it
that day but if no one alerts me to a problem it may be months before
I notice it myself.

I am always interested in new articles. If you have written an article
that would be of interest to others in the SCA, please send it to me
for possible inclusion in the Florilegium. Contact me for more details.
