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...

Thousands of fish wash up on Cornish beach: Deaths A mystery, no signs of pollution!

Bad weather could be to blame for thousands of dead fish washing up on a beach, experts have said. Visitors to Pentewan Sands, Cornwall, said the beach was covered in herring, sardine and mackerel on Saturday.
Experts described the event as unusual, especially for the time of year, but suspect recent windy weather could be a factor.
The dead fish have attracted huge numbers of gulls to the bay on the county's south coast.
James Wright, curator of the National Marine Aquarium in Plymouth, said events like this one usually happen in the summer months when fish, particularly mackerel, are following their prey into warmer waters, and then in turn are hunted by something themselves.
"It's quite unusual for fish to want to leave the water, it's usually a result of panic, because of a predator, but at this time of year that would be unusual", he said.
He suggested the weather could be a factor: "It is possible they were all caught in particularly bad weather when they were near the surface and washed up by the waves."
Mr Wright said the fish did not appear to have been affected by pollution, but people should not take them home and eat them.
