Marching On Together


Marching On Together I have had a romance with a lady since my childhood just like thousands of other people around the world who are also in love with her. I have remained in love with her through the many bad times and the few good times, my love for her has never faltered and never will. My lady's name is Leeds United and she is just five games away from returning to the English Football Premiership, after sixteen years in the football wilderness. In the sixties, seventies and early nineties my lady was known as "Super Leeds," however in 2003, my love was relegated from the English Football Premiership due to financial miss-handling by her owners. "Super Leeds," dropped down to the third tier of English football. If Leeds United can grab ten points from their last five games my lady will be back where she belongs in the higher echelons of English football and I can once more embrace my love with happiness.

Leeds 5 v 0 Stoke, 7 points needed from 4 games...

Meteorite smashes through house roof in Province of Phitsanulok Thailand: Rocks recovered

The suspected meteorite fell through the roof of a home in Plai Chumphon sub-district at 7.26am, hit a wall and then bounced to the floor, breaking into five pieces.
"I was having breakfast when there was a loud bang, like a gunshot sound.
I looked around and found a rock about the size of an egg and some fragments nearby.
I picked up the largest chunk and let go quickly as it was very hot," 65-year-old home-owner Bualom Chalomprai said.
Mrs Bualom believes the rock is from outer space and will bring her good luck.
Mrs Bualom's husband, Kittisak, 75, said he heard a sound of explosion in the sky at about 7am before the 300g rock fell through his roof.

Media reports said residents in adjacent districts of Nakhon Thai and Chat Trakan also heard the "explosion".
Scientists at Naresuan University's department of physics later carried out an initial examination on a small fragment taken from the Chalomprai family home and concluded the object could very likely be a meteorite given its features and the circumstance under which it had been found.
Department head Sarawut Tuantam said the rock's crust was charcoal black, indicating it had been burned entering Earth's atmosphere at very high speeds.
The test also found the chunk contained large amount of iron and was attracted by a magnet.
Prof Sarawut added that the Chalomprais could keep the suspected space rock as it had safe radioactivity levels.
