Greetings to the Gentles of the SCA-Cooks list,

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

I have added an RSS feed for the Florilegium website. If you are  
already reading RSS feeds, please add the Florilegium RSS feed to  
find out when new and updated files as well as new features as they  
get added to the website. If you are unfamiliar with RSS, or Real  
Simple Syndication, is a method built into many web browsers as well  
as being available as a separate tool, which lets you find out when  
the contents of your favorite websites has been updated or changed.  
You can find out more about RSS at this link as well as elsewhere:  

Like much of the economy, web advertising revenue is down. If you see  
an ad on the Florilegium that is even a little interesting to you,  
please click on it. Even if you don't buy anything, each click brings  
in a miniscule amount of money to the Florilegium and helps me keep  
this site online.

If you are going to Gulf Wars this year, please drop by the Barony of  
Bryn Gwlad camp and say hi. I will also be teaching two sessions of  
my hands-on pewter casting class and my class on the Florilegium, so  
you can also find me on Artisan's Row or in the class tents.

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.
