The terrible, awful and sad sight of melted peeps after battle most savage ): It appears the victor in this terrible battle is the peep with the reddish toothpick.
Sir William the Terrible eating one of the poor melted peeps after it has been wounded beyond all hope of healing (it really was the most humane thing to do).
WARNING: To all out there thinking of eating melted peeps, please make sure they have had time to properly cool before doing so. Otherwise a burnt mouth could ensue and that is a big Ouchy!!!!!!!!!!!!

And now for something completely different, book reviews by Sir William the Terrible:
Sir Gawain and the Green Knight by Selina Hastings and Juan Wijngaard - This is not exactly a new book but it is an excellent adaption of the "Sir Gawain and the Green Knight" tale from Arthurian Legend. This story is about a young Sir Gawain of King Arthur's Knights of the Round Table and how his courage and sense of chivalry is tested by the eerie Green Knight. Here is an excerpt from the story to wet your taste buds:
'A noble opponent indeed!' exclaimed the Green Knight, dismounting from his horse. 'Sir Gawain, you must swear that in exactly one year and a day you will seek me out and allow me to return your blow.'
'I give you my word,' said Gawain.
Then the Green Knight knelt at Gawain’s feet, bowing his head so that the neck was plainly exposed. Gawain lifted the axe up high and brought it whistling down, severing the Knight’s head cleanly from his shoulders.
The head rolled on the floor, blood spurting from the wound, but the Knight never faltered. Rising to his feet, he picked up his head and, tucking it under his arm, swung himself up into the saddle.
As he passed Gawain, the head turned and regarded him solemnly. 'Remember your promise, Gawain. Meet me at the Green Chapel in one year and a day.’ Then spurring his horse, the Green Knight galloped out of the hall.
Pretty cool, huh!!!!! Give this book a chance as it rocks in a major way!!!!!!

It is also a history of the Negro National Baseball League and some of the outstanding men who played for the League, Satchel Paige being one of its biggest stars. The father in the story is a sharecropper who works under a very unkind pair of white twins. The father tries his best to improve things for his son and show him that African Americans are just as good as White Americans. However because of the time period and many ugly practices that are allowed to take place in that part of the
Well, not to overstay my welcome, I bid thee a most greatful adieu,
