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.
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...
