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 major quake strikes the Adriatic area: A magnitude 6.0 rocks Greece after the mag 6.4 quake hit Albania killing 24 people and a mag 5.4 struck Bosnia yesterday

A magnitude 6.1 quake, reduced to a magnitude 6.0 by USGS, 41km NW of Platanos, Greece is the second major quake to strike the Adriatic region in two days. Yesterday a rare powerful, shallow magnitude 6.4 has rocked Mamurras, Albania which has killed 24 people and injured 650. Hundreds of people spent the night in tents and automobiles as powerful aftershocks continued to rock the area. The quake was the biggest to hit Albania in decades.

A magnitude 5.4 earthquake rocked Bosnia on Tuesday with an epicentre 75 km (45 miles) south of Bosnian capital Sarajevo, just hours after the strongest tremor in decades rocked Albania.

According to Keep Talking Greek the earthquake measuring 6.1 struck in the sea area between the islands of Crete and Kythera at 9:23 a.m. on Wednesday. There is no tsunami risk, say Greek seismologists. The tremor was so powerful that it was felt also in half of Greece, including the far-away mainland.

Yesterday a mag 4.6 shook Ano Kastritsion, Greece in an area where on Monday two people were killed after their moored sailing boat sank in Antirio town, western Greece, amid severe weather. Storm Gyrionis created havoc in towns across the country over the weekend. In Kineta, south of Athens, the Fire Service evacuated dozens of people from flooded homes.

This morning's quake is the 17th major quake (M 6 or higher) of a busy November and the 131th of 2019.
