Sir Sherwood badly injured
At ten o'clock yesterday morning Sir Sherwood of Nottingham was badly burnt when he fell into a flaming snake pit. He was enjoying a game of badminton with his fellow knights when he ran backwards to get the birdie and tripped over a stump. He then flew several feet and landed on his head in the snake pit. While the knights were trying to rescue Sir Sherwood, one knight indirectly set the pit ablaze while he lit his torch to increase visibility inside the pit where Sir Sherwood was entrapped. Fortunately, Sir Sherwood was rescued heroically by King Arthur himself. Cards may be sent to Guenevire's Garden Inn at Nottingham. (January 2005)

Castle For Sale
Out in Mertile Drive, behind Pineflu Forest, there is a castle for sale. It is called the Dolmes Fortress. Dolmes Fortress got its name because there is a castle used to be a mighty dragon, who lived there, called Simpress Dolmes. The dragon was so scary, that thousands of knights went into the castle at one time, and none came out alive. They all died from the dragon's fire breath. Then, when some kids were trying to see who could shoot an arrow the farthest, suddenly, an arrow rocketed off one of the kids' bows, straight into the window, piercing the dragon's heart. When the dragon finally died, three million knights picked it up and threw it in the sea, out the window. The sea is called Plumbob Sea. The boy who killed the dragon owns the castle, but is ready to give it away. Also, the castle has been cleaned up. The castle is now selling for $6,000.00 Dateline: May 04

The court have been celebrating this blessing for 3 fortnights with Ale and the finest Oxens. The Child has been kept in the castle's hospice. The child is expected to be there for 5 fortnighs or so until the court doctors find there is nothing to take into precaution. The Queen is doing fair. She is sleeping in her Quarters until she feels ready. She has so far not taken part in any of the celebrations. The king has been apart of the celebrations, Some say they have seen him with other women dancing and drinking fine wine and ale. He has also been seen walking to his Quarters with the Queens ladys in waiting. This is a great joy for the whole kingdom as the King is getting older, and has to have an heir soon.
