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...

Deadly jellyfish spotted in Australian waters

According to the Quandamooka Yoolooburrabee Aboriginal Corporation, deadly jellyfish have been spotted in shallow waters around North Stradbroke Island.
The team, which manages the land and waters in the area, has described the Morbakka fenneri jellyfish as similar to Irukandji syndrome.
Its sting is severe and can be fatal.
The symptomns can take up to 30 minutes to occur.
You should see a doctor immediately if you think you have been stung.
The QYAC urged anyone with severe lower back pain, nausea, vomiting, breathing difficulties, heavy sweating, severe cramps and spasms as the result of a sting, to urgently see a doctor.
Irukandji, box jellyfish and bluebottles have been responsible for stings along the Queensland coast this summer with several beaches closed at various times.
Surf Life Saving Queensland North Barrier Region supervisor Russell Blanchard said the box jellyfish contain "one of the most powerful toxins known to man".
"They can potentially kill a human in two to three minutes minutes," he said. Off Fraser Island a spate of stings saw 10 people hospitalised and sparked fears of a southern irukandji migration.
