I was simply making a joke about my ideal B & B.  I was trying to state
that all candidates are my friends and that it would be a difficult
choice since my :-) ideal candidates were not available.

Lighten up - I was just trying to be humorous!

Lord Daniel, your post reminded me of a situation in a doctor's office
my mother witnessed:

The doctor is examining a newborn.  When the diaper came off, the
newborn proceeded to have a bowel movement right into the doctor's
(gloved) hand.  With a deft movement, he pulled off the glove, turning
it inside out as he did so, and passed it off to the nurse, asking her
to please take care of the problem.

I see an analogy to the B&B: have capable people in your entourage who
can quickly clear away minor annoyances in order for you to continue
your business.

Lord Daniel, I respectfully disagree with your opinion that there are no
qualified candidates for Baron and Baroness.  There are several couples,
not to mention several people who didn't put in a bid.

My thoughts are that the B&B should be people with a sense of Elfsea's
history - how long was Elfsea a Shire before becoming a Barony, for
instance?  Why did Elfsea split from the Steppes in the first place?
They should be active members for at least five years, preferably
longer.  They should be able to travel, not just in the Central Region.
And they should recognize the natural progression of growth - such as a
Canton maturing into a Shire being a positive reflection upon the

But these are just my opinions, as well, and I know what they're worth -
mes deux sous.
