Greetings to the Gentle Folk of the SCA-Cooks list,

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

Please accept my apologies for the late delivery of this article. I  
spent the first week of this month in the hospital with an infected  
leg and then spent the last few days backing up and rebuilding the  
file system on my computer because of a disk corruption.

As always I'm looking for good articles for the Florilegium. If you  
have written any papers for an A&S competition or even documentation  
which will stand alone without the actual display, I'd love to have  
them for the Florilegium. This is your chance to let folks across the  
Known World see what you have been working on, and perhaps to  
interest others in your favorite activity.

I am also putting together a "suggested articles" list. 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 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
