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...

Powerful mag 6.8 quake shakes western Greece bringing the total to 13 major quakes this month and the 101st of 2018.

A powerful earthquake shook western Greece early on Friday, damaging a port and a 15th-century monastery, but causing no major injuries, officials and local media said.
The quake sent out tremors felt as far afield as Libya, Italy, Malta and Albania.
Greek authorities initially issued a tsunami warning then withdrew the alert.
A series of 20 aftershocks, the highest at 5.6, rattled the island and power was briefly disrupted.
According to Reuters,  the energy unleashed, based on the angle of the faultline, fanned out towards Italy,”
Zakynthos was all but destroyed in a 6.8 tremor in 1953. More than 140 people were killed in an earthquake north of Athens in 1999.
The quake was fairly shallow, according to the USGS, just 14 km (8.7 miles) below the seabed, which would have amplified the shaking.
This morning's quakes bring the total to 13 major quakes this month and the 101st of 2018.
