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...

Another giant iceberg has broken free from Pine Island Glacier in West Antarctica about five times the size of Manhattan

An iceberg about five times the size of Manhattan has broken off the Pine Island Glacier in West Antarctica over the past 24 hours, an ominous sign of the continued retreat of this fast-flowing mass of ice.
Like many other marine terminating glaciers in Antarctica, this glacier is retreating over time and increasing the movement of ice into the sea.
The iceberg had first appeared as a rift across Pine Island Glacier in September, before leading to the calving of about 300 square kilometres, or 116 square miles, of ice.
The largest individual iceberg measures about 226 square kilometres in area, or 87 square miles. While this iceberg itself is not record-breaking - it ranks as the sixth-largest iceberg to break off the Pine Island Glacier since 2001 - it illustrates the continued instability of marine-terminating glaciers in parts of the icebound continent.
