Greetings to the Known World,

Here is a copy of my Florilegium article for April.

I am always looking for additional good articles that might be of
interest to folks around the Known World. If you have written one
for a local or other newsletter or for an Arts and Sciences entry,
please consider sending it to me. The copyright remains with the
author and I will update or remove it upon request by the author.

Also, some kingdom and principality mail lists have recently
become closed lists, which means I can no longer send this
article directly to those lists each month. If you do not see 
this article on one of your lists, please feel free to forward it. 
If it is not a closed list and you think it should be sent there,
please notify me. If it is a closed list and you would like
to volunteer, let me know and I will forward it to you in the
future to forward to your selected list.

If you have suggestions on new features of the Florilegium you 
would like to see or topics you think should be covered but aren't, 
please send me email.


A Blending of the Past and Present       

Over the past ten 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:

Files that are new or have been updated are indicated by a special 
marker in the filelists at the website. In addition, the file 
-updated-files is a listing of these files in chronological order.

A copy of my complete filelist is available in most sections of the 
website. This filelist or any of my files is also available from me 
by email in either Word 6.0 or text formats.

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.
