Greetings to the Gentlefolk of the SCA-Cooks list,

Here is a copy of my Florilegium article for October detailing what  
is new in the Florilegium this month.

I'm still looking for backup assistants to send this monthly article  
to the Drachenwald, Atlantia, Outlands and the West kingdom lists,  
when my regular assistants can't for some reason, such as being out  
of town. If you are interested in helping me out and you are on one  
of those lists, please contact me.

I want to thank Lissa Underhill in the East Kingdom who has  
volunteered to help edit and update the files in the Florilegium.  
Several of the files in this month's updated files list were done by  
her. If anyone else would be interested in helping out in editing and  
updating the Florilegium files, please contact me.

I also produce a version of this monthly article specifically for  
websites. If you maintain such a website and would like me to add you  
to my list of Web Ministers who get this article, please contact me.

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  
more details.

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.
