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...

Thousands of dead fish wash up along the beach on Okaloosa Island, Florida

What is killing the fish? Photo nwf Daily News
A smelly, "guacamole-thick" muck is fouling a stretch of beaches promoted as Florida's "Treasure Coast."
Florida Governor Rick Scott declared a state of emergency last Thursday as blooms of toxic algae plagues beaches along the state's Atlantic coast.
However Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission are not blaming algae blooms for the death of thousands of fish which have washed up along the beaches of Okaloosa Island.
Thousands of dead fish litter a beach on Okaloosa Island, Florida, reports the nwf Daily News.
Bekah Nelson, spokeswoman for Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, said  that the agency took samples earlier in the week but did not find any blooms.
Some fish kills are the result of natural events.
Fish kills can occur when there is too little oxygen in the water.
Environmental factors such as weather patterns, water temperature, depth and quality, amount and type of plant growth, fish community structure, along with the presence of viruses and bacteria can all be triggers.
In Florida, most dissolved oxygen-related fish kills occur in the warmer months from May through September, although it’s possible that it can occur in winter.
