      Gee whiz even I'm here, though I will have to fight the urge to lurk.
      I'm Ldy.Viviana Fiorentina from the shire of Flint Marsh, but most
      people in the SCA know me only as Moltan's wife. I'm a lurker by
      nature, even in the flesh. Are we having fun yet?

      My logic in changing us to a "household" is that we are percieved by
      some in our Kingdom as being sepratists. This has caused much hard
      feelings over the years and has in my opinion held back some very
      fine folks. If these folks look down on us now, they must be
      prepared to have their own Houses examined in the same way or at
      least be prepared to be held accountable if by no one else, Me.

      as we did before, except with even more freedom. This allows people
      like Owen and Lochlann to remain active contributing members of the
      Consortium even though their Shire Leadership is opposed to
      Consortium Membership.

      everyone as Marco can Stomach.
      > I personally don't know how we would have gotten a fair consensus
      on this. I've watched apathy grow to such a point that Not one
      Seneschal on the Witan Council would speak to Ld Andrew when he was
      Warden. Maegwynn faced similar struggles. I think it took what 3
      months of her calling various Shire Seneschals to get the last big
      consensus. This way, we can appoint an Elder from a Geographical
      region of the Consortium. This person would of course would be
      enthusiastic about the Consortium. That in itself will do much to
      alleviate Apathy. I've surveyed three surrounding Consortium Shires
      recently. Each has new people. Most of the new folks don't even have
      a clue as to what the Consortium is. I personally blame this on the
      folks in their groups who should be showing the way. To get an honest
      totally fair oppinion, James would have to speak to each and every
      individual in the Consortium. Seeing as how many people on our old
      list are not even Consortium Members and so few people attend Chalice
      Challenge, I don't see how this would be feasible.
