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.

Following an increase in seismic activity, Turrialba Volcano began spewing ash, vapor and gases at 2 a.m. on Tuesday, experts from the University of Costa Rica (UCR) and the National University (UNA) confirmed.
Activity at Turrialba, located in Cartago province 60 kilometers northeast of the capital San Jose, resumed Monday night with an increase in volcanic tremors, according to a report from UNA's Volcanological and Seismological Observatory of Costa Rica (OVSICORI).
The report adds that the ash plume from the explosion reached approximately 300 meters (985 feet) above the volcano's crater.
Mauricio Mora, a volcanologist with UCR's National Seismological Network (RSN), said windy conditions in the morning dispersed the ash plume towards the west and northwestern areas of the Central Valley.
Ashes mainly reached sectors in northeastern San Jose, and certain areas in Alajuela and Heredia provinces.
People posting on both OVSICORI's and UNA's Facebook pages reported smelling sulfur and seeing ash on the ground in communities north and east of the capital including Coronado, Moravia, Guadalupe, Tibas and Montes de Oca.
Tuesday morning's activity, however, was not as strong as that recorded earlier this year, when ash plumes exceeded 3,000 meters (9,800 ft.) above the volcano.
The new explosion followed 43 days of low activity, after the last important explosion recorded on August 1.
Turrialba is one of Costa Rica's five active volcanoes along with Arenal, Poas, Irazu, and Rincon de la Vieja.
President Luis Guillermo Solís toured communities north and east of Cartago on Monday and announced the allocation of ?2,4 billion ($4.3 million) for the province, including aid for farmers and ranchers whose production has been negatively affected by volcanic activity and drought in recent years.
According to the Agriculture Ministry, Cartago farmers are the country's top potato producers, supplying 80 percent of all potatoes consumed in Costa Rica.
They are also the largest producers of onions and large suppliers of carrots, yucca, cabbages, beets, flowers and other crops.
