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 5.2-magnitude earthquake on Wednesday struck off Japan's Fukushima Prefecture, according to the Japan Meteorological Agency (JMA). The quake shows just how vulnerable the stricken plant is with thousands of bags of radioactive waste and 1,000 tanks of dangerous radioactive contaminants.

A system meant to purify contaminated water hs failed to remove dangerous radioactive contaminants at the stricken Fukushima plant according to Tokyo Electric Power Co, (TEPCO) the owners. Most of that water is stored in 1,000 tanks around the plant. TEPCO is already running out of space to store treated water. And should another big quake strike, (which is a question of when and NOT if), experts say tanks could crack, unleashing tainted liquid and washing highly radioactive debris into the ocean. During the summer of 2017, 50,000 trillion Becquerel’s of radiation leaked into the Pacific, however. Yesterday's quake is a timely reminder of just how dangerous the situation is at the Fukushima plant, it is literally a ticking time-bomb.

The East Coast of Japan is one of the most volatile quake areas in the world
