A. General no good.
B. Needlework...lots of.  Blackwork & cross-stitch projects abound, but as
most of them are gifts, I won't be specific.
C. Researched & produced "daryoles" from
http://www.pbm.com/~lindahl/cariadoc/desserts.html#20 &
http://www.medievalcookery.com/recipes/shortpaest.html for Populace.  I'm
told they were ok.  Since I don't like custard, they smelled really
wonderful and tasted...not so much.

Technically I arranged A&S day, and attended a medieval cooking class,
taught heraldry & submissions, and know about some other subjects that were
mentioned, but didn't get out to the actual classroom. I can't think of
anything else for last month, but this one is already up and running!
Yours in Service,

means just what I choose it to mean -- neither more nor less.' *

different things.' *

* `The question is,' said Humpty Dumpty, `which is to be master - - that's
all.' *
