Greetings to the Gentle Folk of the Known World,

Here is a copy of my Florilegium article for January 2006, detailing  
the new and some of the updated files for this month.

I also make this article available to editors of SCA newsletters on  
my list several weeks in advance. This allows them the time they need  
to meet their publication deadlines, yet still be able to publish the  
latest article. If you are an editor and would like to be added to my  
list, please contact me.

I am always looking for additional good articles for the Florilegium.  
If you know of any web sites, especially ones run by individuals,  
where there are articles you think deserve a wider distribution,  
please send me the details and I will contact the authors for  

A Blending of the Past and Present

Over the past sixteen 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

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.

I am also interested in volunteers who might be interested in helping  
me maintain the Florilegium. Everything from collecting materials,  
editing and web work is needed. Again, please contact me for more  

For those who would like to help support the Florilegium project in  
another way, I have added a PayPal donation button on the top page of  
the site. Any donations, while not tax deductible, do help pay the  
overhead costs of keeping the site running.

      THLord Stefan li Rous   Ansteorra    stefan at florilegium.org
