      Greetings to the Gentles of the Known World,

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

      I'm sure that by now most of you have heard of the recent hurricane
      which has dealt quite a blow to parts of the Kingdoms of Meridies and
      Trimaris and the soon to be Kingdom of Gleann Abhann. Many of our
      fellow members have been displaced and often lost most of their
      material goods including SCA stuff. Please keep in mind these folks
      and keep an eye out for how you might be able to help out. And if
      some of these folks find themselves in your area, please welcome them
      and help them feel at home, whether for weeks, months or longer.

      I know that there are a number of SCA oriented relief efforts going
      on. However, right now things are still in a bit of flux, so I'm not
      going to try to give an exhaustive list but here are a few:
      The Meridian Disaster Relief webpage: http://hurricane-
      A mail list set up for not only this current disaster, but also for
      the future: SCA-Disaster@yahoogroups.com

      On a different note, I am considering adding an RSS service to the
      Florilegium. This will allow folks with the proper software, to get
      more continuous and comprehensive updates on what is new in the
      Florilegium. RSS now comes standard with the latest Apple Safari
      browser, for instance. Before I go to the effort of implementing and
      maintaining this additional feature though, I'd appreciate comments
      on whether this would be of interest or not to the users of the
      Florilegium.So, please send me an email if you have any comments, pro
      or con about this.


      A Blending of the Past and Present

      Over the past sixteen 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: 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. Contact me for
      more details.

      I am also interested in volunteers who might be interested in helping
      me maintain the Florilegium. Everything from collecting materials,
      editing and web work is needed. Again, please contact me for more

      For those who would like to help support the Florilegium project in
      another way, I have added a PayPal donation button on the top page of
      the site. Any donations, while not tax deductible, do help pay the
      overhead costs of keeping the site running.
