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...

An underwater volcano situated near Tonga named "Submarine Volcano III" has been erupting for over a week, according to a GNS scientist and Nasa images.
On January 31, a plume was seen emanating from a "submarine volcano" by University of Auckland geographers.
It is situated about 46km northwest of Tonga's capital, Nuku'alofa.
Satellite images taken from the Tongan area proved the underwater eruption is underway - and still going.
According to a blog post by GNS volcanologist Brad Scott, satellite images obtained from Nasa show volcanic activity on January 23 - indicating that the eruption has continued for over a week. Volcanologists based in Tonga suggest that steam plume visible above water may be present, but cannot be confirmed due to cloud in the area.
In his post, Scott cautioned that "submarine eruptions can be a hazard to shipping".
Previous undersea eruptions in the area have sent cloud and smoke up to 20km into the earth's atmosphere.
This is far from the the first time the Tongan region has been struck by an underwater volcano.
The phenomenon has been detected in the area frequently since 1911, with the particularly large eruptions creating short-lived islands.
