<<<    Yes!  Please send Stefan a copy....provided he gets it on the  
site in  a
timely manner (hint! hint!, Stefan!)  >>>

LOL. Thanks, Etain.

I try to get new things onto the site in a timely manner.  I do  
however, tend to let saved email messages, such as those on this  
list,  collect until I have enough additions for a particular file to  
be worth the overhead of editing and uploading and the rest of the  
stuff that updating a file requires, before I update a file.  If you  
are looking for info you remember being discussed here or you think a  
file is aging, send me an email and I'll probably put updating that  
file closer to the top of the priority list.

If you are an author who has sent me an article and you are wondering  
what happened to it, please feel free to email me.  Many articles get  
sidetracked when I have trouble translating their graphics to  
something which will work in both Word and on the web (HTML).        
Sometimes it takes me a while to get back to them.  It has also  
happened that I didn't get an email with an article or I saved the  
message for later work and it got buried.

<<< I'm particularly interested in  anyting to
do with the "27 foods from milk" I found mentioned in one of my   
sources.  I
can't come up with that many...including yogurts, cheeses, and  sour  
milks! >>>

That's a poor challenge. What is the dividing line between what is  
and isn't a different item from another? Do a fresh and an aged  
cheese count as one or two foods? Is yoghurt different than kefir for  
this? You can eat milk based glue. Does it count as one of the 27 foods?

Here's a few others that occur to me and their Florilegium files.
milk drunk as milk.
kumiss-msg        (70K)  1/18/08    Mongol drink made from mare's milk.
clotted-cream-msg (36K) 12/15/04    Clotted cream products.  
Devonshire cream.
    (or does this count as 'sour milk'?)
larded-milk-msg   (20K) 11/ 8/05    Larded milk. A fried, fresh  
cheese dish.
Does the whey used to preserve foods (ie: in Iceland) count? Or even  
whey drunk as that?
Does dried milk count as different from milk?
