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...

A very powerful, shallow 7.4 earthquake rocks the east coast of New Zealand: Pacific Tsunami warning quickly downgraded: Today's quake is the 6th major quake, (mag 6 or higher) of June and the strongest so far


A very powerful, shallow 7.4 earthquake has struck off the east coast of New Zealand - and widely felt by thousands. The earthquake, 710km northeast of Gisborne and 33km deep, was listed as "weak' by GeoNet NZ but was felt across much of the east coast including Hawke's Bay this morning. More than 8900 people - including residents in Napier, Hastings, Gisborne, Bay of Plenty and Wellington - registered as feeling the quake at 12.50am. Hawke's Bay Civil Defence emergency management group issued an advisory shortly after to say there was no tsunami threat from the shake.

International media had initially reported a tsunami alert had been issued as part of the UNESCO/IOC Pacific Tsunami warning and mitigation system which said: "Hazardous tsunami waves from this earthquake are possible within 300km of the epicentre." However, the alert was quickly downgraded according to the New Zealand Herald.

Today's quake is the 6th major quake, (mag 6 or higher) of June and the strongest so far, it is also the 52nd major quake of 2020 as we approach the half-way point of the year.
