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 major quake?? I thought they had stopped altogether: A mag 6.6 New Zealand is only the 2nd major quake of July and the 49th of 2017


As we approach the half way point of July I was beginning to think major quakes had stopped altogether after this years unprecedented fall off but last night a mag 6.6 near Auckland Island was only the 2nd major quake of July and only the 49th of 2017.

Astonishing as it is, the same period in 2011 (the year of the Fukushima disaster) 135 major quakes had been registered by July the 12th.
The average monthly total of major quakes in the first 6 months of the year since 2010 is 15, this years average is only 8, nearly 50% less, as I said, unprecedented, let us hope it is not the calm before the storm.
Stay safe folks
