Greetings to the Gentles of the SCA-Cooks list,

Here is a copy of my Florilegium article for August.

If you have written some good documentation for an A&S project or a  
paper for an A&S contest or if you have created a handout for a  
class, please consider sending them to me for possible inclusion in  
the Florlegium. If A&S documentation or a class handout can stand  
alone without the actual project or the class, then it may make a  
good addition to the Florilegium. My standard policy is that the  
copyright remains with the author and  will take updates at any time.  
This means, for instance, that you can always replace your  
documentation with a more polished article later. In the meantime,  
folks can still be learning from the work you have done.

I am still looking for employment. If you have found the Florilegium  
useful and think my work on it shows characteristics which you think  
an employer might also be interested in, please consider linking to  
me in Linked-In (www.linkedIn.com) and providing a recommendation. My  
profile there is at: http://www.linkedin.com/in/marksharris

I will be at Pennsic again this year, and will be camping with SPCA  
in W10, down by the lake, opposite the end of the peninsula and near  
Orluk's Oasis. Please feel free to drop by and say hello.

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.
