Time has a way of passing swiftly.  For those of us who are have not
marked it's flow, be now aware of how fleet it's passage.

The Bard of The Mists Competition is September 9th!  The victor shall
become the 25th Bard of the Mists.

Much entertainment and merriment is planned.  As well as a Feast, with
delicacies from the Silver and Silk Trade Routes.  

In honor of the occasion, the theme piece will have two themes.  Use
one or the other or both (bonus points!!!) -  Time and Silver.  The
other pieces are, per law and custom: a period piece, a piece in a
period style, a showcase work (what you consider your personal best),
and an on site "draw 3 words out of a hat".  If any have questions
about the competition, the duties of the Bard, auditing, or the event,
please contact the autocrat.

Cooking a marvelous repaste of dishes and delicacies from the Silver
and Silk Trade Route is a remarkable kitchen caravan. Bethia de la
Birche is the head cook.  Her team is the Silk Road Travelers.  If you
were at Kingdom A&S, you may have been fortunate to taste of this
team's cooking skills.  They were the victors in this year's Siege Cook
Off.  The flat bread in the first course is from that recipe.
