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...

7,000 quakes of magnitude 2.5 or higher have battered Hawaii's Kilauea Volcano in June as summit collapse causes a mag 5.2 Friday

With almost 700 quakes of various magnitudes struck Hawaii's Kilauea Volcano yesterday causing a part of the summit to collapse.
A collapse at the summit of Hawaii's Kilauea Volcano on Friday created an explosion equivalent to a 5.2-magnitude earthquake, the U.S. Geological Survey said.
The agency said the event created an ash-poor plume about 500 feet into the air.
Seismic activity near the volcano has been regular since early May when eruptions first began. "Following the explosion at the summit, the seismicity will sharply drop off, and then gradually begin to build up as we approach the next summit explosion," Alex Demas, of the USGS, told Hawaii News Now.
"So as long as the summit explosions continue, there likely will be earthquakes and ground shaking associated with the explosion."
The USGS' Hawaiian Volcano Observatory said Fissure 8 is releasing spatter and causing lava flows into the Kapoho Beach Lots and ocean.
The spatter is creating Pele's hair, lightweight, volcanic glass fragments downwind of the fissure.
The Hawai'i County Civil Defense said gas emissions from the fissure were "very high."
Since the volcanic activity began in April, lava has destroyed 657 homes, mostly in the Leilani Estates and Vacationland neighbourhoods.
Some 1,600 households on the Big Island have registered to receive aid from the Federal Emergency Management Agency.
In the month of June alone almost 7,000 quakes of magnitude 2.5 or higher have battered the vulnerable volcano.
