I can attest to the spread (and the size) of House Galbraith.  I am 
also a member of said household, even here in the Irish Sea.

I have always agreed that this is the best test of any title or term 
of reference, but is especially true here.  If others don't consider 
you a bard, entertainer, etc. it doesn't really matter what you call 
yourself.  Your public has spoken (or not spoken, whichever).

I hesitate to join the msgs that disagree with a simple "Me Too" 

Forms of recognition and praise are an important part of SCA.  

I like 
what I've been hearing on the Ealdormere mail list about what has 
been refered to as "The White Wolf Thingie".  A guild-type 
orginization whos members accept 'challanges' to their artistic 
ability.  This is a VERY loose explanation, I have not been following 
it too closely.  If anyone has better info, please...
