Geez-as to the Salt one-some folks must not read their bible...even the Old
Testament speaks of salt....And then there is the reference to salt in King
Lear by Shakespeare.

Actually, I was being serious.  I have heard of -- or been told -- each
of those things at one time or another in my mumblety-mumble years in
the SCA.  I've got scads of paintings with buttons on them.
