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...

After a relatively quiet period of volcanic activity on the planet Mount Ijen, new to The Big Wobble is showing activity.
An Indonesian volcano belched thick clouds of sulphuric gas on Wednesday, sending 30 people to the hospital and prompting the closure of the popular tourist and mining site.
Nearly 200 people living on the slopes of Mount Ijen in East Java province were forced to evacuate. "Because of this incident, the public - tourists or miners - are not allowed near the crater until further notice," said Sutopo Purwo Nugroho, spokesman for the national disaster mitigation agency.
He added that many residents had experienced vomiting and difficulty in breathing.
There was no increase in seismic activity, Nugroho said.
The crater is a popular site for tourists and miners, who dig up hardening yellow sulfur to sell for use in everything from cosmetics to matchsticks.
The volcano regularly puffs out small amounts of noxious gases but the site stays open to the public. Around five million of Indonesia's 250 million people live and work near volcanoes, according to authorities, largely because of the fertile farming soil.
