Noted and amended.  That'll teach me to over generalize while standing on
the over-generalization soapbox!

As to the rest, very interesting and informative.  I think I must be a
museum re-enactor. <Grin>

FYI, purple is probably my least favorite color, but with the current setup
of the College it seems it's easier to avoid conflict and gain an extra
difference (or 1/2) by using purple.  This is how I remember it as a herald
from many years ago.  Has this changed?
