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... Swansea City 0 v 1 Leeds United, 4 points needed from 3 games...

70,000 year old Shiveluch volcano in Russia given "red warning" to passing planes after massive 13km ash and steam eruption

The Shiveluch volcano in Russia's Far Eastern Kamchatka region has erupted, spewing ash some 13km above sea level.
Experts from the Russian Academy of Sciences measured the plumes using seismic data as the ash column mixed with low-lying clouds.
Officials from the region's Emergency Situations Ministry have confirmed that the ash is not expected to land on nearby settlements, Russia's Interfax news agency reported Friday.
Meanwhile a "red warning" has been issued to passing planes, urging them to avoid the site.
The Shiveluch volcano is extimated to be between 60,000 and 70,000 years old.
Stretching 3,283 meters at its highest point, the volcano towers over the nearby village of Klyuchi in Kamchatka's Ust-Kamchatsky district, home to roughly 5,000 people.
The eruption follows increased activity at the nearby Bezymyanny volcano, which threw five clouds of ash more than 8 kilometers high at the beginning of March.
