Well,, if she must me leaved, at least have her leaved Proper.  Otherwise
would just be....   well, unproper!  

Which brings me to a few other heraldic questions (Rhiannon, you've been so
helpful in this department before, maybe you can help again).
1)  Can a female herald be fructed?
2)  Do you have to ask her first?
3)  How common was the usage of the demi-herald?
4)  And did it hurt?
5)  Is it acceptable to display a female herald slipped, or should we try and
keep her hidden?
and finally....
6)  Has anyone else noticed the similarity between the badge of the Militant
Society of Bards and the flag of the Isle of Man?  
And 7)  Where is the Isle of Women?  Do they have off-season travel rates?
