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.

EARTHQUAKES IN STRANGE PLACES: A strong magnitude 4.4 followed by a mag 3.3 is the second biggest quake to strike Tennessee U.S., since 1973

This quake strongest on record in east Tennessee since a Nov. 30, 1973 tremor near Maryville, south of Knoxville, which led to minor damage near the epicentre.
The U.S. Geological Survey recorded two earthquakes in Tennessee early Wednesday.
The first happened at about 3:15a.m. and was reported to be a magnitude 4.4. The second was recorded at about 3:30a.m. and was a magnitude 3.3.
According to the USGS Intensity map, as of 3:45a.m., more than 2000 people reported feeling the earthquakes across Tennessee, North Carolina, Alabama, and Georgia.
Some people reported feeling weak shaking in areas of Middle Tennessee, like Hendersonville, Cookeville, and Murfreesboro.
According to the National Weather Service office in Morristown, the largest earthquake on record in East Tennessee was a magnitude 4.7 near Marysville in 1973.
The USGS studied the reason why earthquakes are felt at much farther distances on the east coast, compared with earthquakes that hit the west coast.
Researchers found that some factors have to do with tectonic plates and their geological history.
The east coast has older rocks, which researchers said allow seismic waves "to cross them more effectively during an earthquake."
