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...

A high tide of dead Jelly fish as far as the eye can see! Deception Bay beach Queensland turned into "bubblewrap!"

No, that's not high tide, but a plague of jellyfish beached at Deception Bay in Queensland, Australia. Local Charlotte Lawson, who took the pictures on Sunday, said she's never seen that many jellyfish on the beach.
"It happens every year but there's never been this many, this year it's been heaps," Lawson said.
There was only a metre of sand between the jellyfish and the concrete," she said, estimating the jellyfish carpet was between four to six metres wide.
There was so many of them, it looked pretty cool - it looked like bubble wrap across the beach." Lawson said the jellyfish plague normally lasts about a week, but this year's lot could last a bit longer. "As the tide comes in they disappear but when the tide goes back out they're there," she said. "They're already starting to smell." The jellyfish are catostylus mosaicus - better known as blue blubber jellyfish - a type of mildly venomous marine stinger that often wash up on beaches in large numbers. While the blubber jellyfish won't cause swimmers any major pain, they can still hurt - if stung, Surf Live Saving Queensland recommends having a hot shower to treat any marine sting in south-east Queensland. The blubber jellyfish sting is not nearly as painful as another common jellyfish, the bluebottle.
