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...

According to the LA Times, a new swarm of earthquakes has struck near the California-Mexico border underneath the town of El Centro in Imperial County. Scientists are closely watching the cluster, which began at 6:07 p.m. Monday with a magnitude 2.8 quake, followed six minutes later by the largest quake so far, a magnitude 4. There were 18 aftershocks within the first two hours, Caltech seismologist Egill Hauksson said. By Tuesday morning there had been 63 aftershocks. “Swarms in this region are often prolific and can last for weeks,” Hauksson said. “There’s no lack of faults there.”

This week just 300 km North-West from the town of  El Centro, Ventura suffered hundreds of small to medium quakes with the largest being a magnitude 3.6, however, the swarm in Ventura appears to have stopped, as of today.

Meanwhile, 100 miles (160 km) North-East from Ventura, the Ridgecrest "Mega-swarm" which started way back in June and has produced thousands of small quakes is still swarming hard with a total of 650 quakes in the last 7 days, see map below.
