Greetings to the Gentles of the SCA-Cooks list,

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

If you run an SCA-oriented website and would like to get a copy of  
this monthly article with the links for each file included, for  
placement on your website, please email me to get put on my list.

If you have entered an A&S competition or display, please remember  
that A&S papers, even documentation that can stand alone without any  
other objects can make a good Florilegium submission.  Even the  
judges at a competition often don't have the time to read all the  
papers.  Getting them into the Florilegium is one way to give back to  
our Society by sharing what enthuses you with the rest of the Known  
World.  My standard policy is that the copyright remains with the  
author, I will accept updates at any time and I have no problems with  
the same article being on the web in multiple places.

A Blending of the Past and Present

Over the past nineteen 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. A&S documentation  
and class handouts will also often work out well.
