Greetings to the Gentles of the SCA-Cooks list,
Here is a copy of my Florilegium article for November.
I'm currently having problems getting the pictures included in the
Trenchers-Hst-art file below to appear in the HTML (web) version.
It's probably a Word to HTML conversion problem, but I am working on
it and will hopefully get it fixed soon. In the meantime, if you have
any interest in trenchers, this is a good article to read even
without the pictures.
This article should appear on all of the kingdom mailing lists. If
you notice that it hasn't been posted to a kingdom mailing list you
are on, please contact me.
I am currently looking for deputy coordinators for the Atlantia,
Atenveldt, Drachenwald and Meridies lists. The deputy coordinators
are there to backup the regular coordinators and post the monthly
article to their list only if something happens and the regular
coordinator can't do so.
If you see a good article in a local newsletter or A&S journal,
please encourage the author to send the article to be for possible
inclusion in the Florilegium. This will let other people benefit from
their work and give them some added visibility.
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
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.
