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... Swansea City 0 v 1 Leeds United, 4 points needed from 3 games...

A mag 6.0 - 174km N of Arawa, Papua New Guinea is the 6th major quake of July, all 6 have occurred around the Pacific Ring Of Fire including the magnitude 7.1 and 6.4 in Southern California.

Meanwhile, what is being called "swarmageddon" by the locals, the number of aftershocks since the powerful mag 7.1 quake has now reached almost 11,000, however, the swarm in the last 24 hours is showing signs of reduction with a total of 1,600, see screenshot above.

The total number of major quakes (mag 6+) so far this year is an impressive 83, the same period in 2018 delivered just 46 and the same period in 2017 delivered 49, 2016: 75, 2015: 79, 2014: 98, 2013: 77, 2012: 74, 2011: 135, which of course was the year of the Fukushima disaster Japan which suffered more than 70 mag 6+ aftershocks.
