Greetings to the Gentles of the SCA-Cooks list,

Here is a copy of my monthly Florilegium article for November.

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 also putting together a "suggested articles" list which will be  
posted on the website. If you have an idea for an article which you'd  
like to read, but haven't seen anywhere, please let me know and I'll  
add it to this list and perhaps someone will get inspired and write  
such an article.

A Blending of the Past and Present

Over the past seventeen 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 collection 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
