Always charmed to comply with a request from so gracious a lady as Her
Excellency, I offer this possibly passable coat of arms for herself;

	Fieldless, a hayrick proper within a capital letter U sable.

Some of you who have been around here for some time will get this cant. I
know Henry and Her Excellency will. I'll let one of them (or anyone else
who knows the story) expound on't.
