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.
If you are wondering why my blog has changed colours it is in support of my wonderful lady during her next five games. (MOT)

The Fuego volcano, whose eruption killed around 300 people about two months ago, erupted yet again on Sunday evening.
Authorities have ordered the evacuation of emergency personnel who have been working in the area since the last eruption in early June.
Guatemalan officials warned residents in the area to keep away from rivers that might overflow and to be on alert for further instructions from authorities.
The volcano wreaked havoc on nearby towns almost two months ago, killing around 300 people and displacing thousands.
The National Coordinator for Disaster Reduction (CONRED) of Guatemala described the previous eruption as "the strongest one recorded in recent years."
CONRED constantly monitors this area, which was nearly flattened by mudflows that careened down the slopes in June.
These same mudflows, called lahar, once again threaten towns at the mountain's base, located about 50 km west of the capital Guatemala City.
In addition, according to the U.S. Geological Survey, an earthquake measuring 5.1 on the Richter scale on Saturday struck 74 km south of Puerto San Jose, Guatemala.
