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.

Volcano Uptick: Large tremors set Barbarbunga volcano, Iceland on edge!

An earthquake of magnitude 4.0 hit the northern end of Barbarbunga between 4 and 5 am yesterday morning.
The volcano, which lies under the massive Vatnajökull glacier, caused the 2014-2015 Holuhraun eruption in the northeastern highlands of Iceland.
Einar Hjorleifsson, natural hazards specialist at the Icelandic Met Office, says the earthquake is certainly large and among the strongest to have occurred in the volcano since the Holuhraun eruption came to an end, reports.
Yesterday, a 3.0 magnitude earthquake was measured in Barbarbunga around noon, and a total of six earthquakes stronger than 2.0 magnitude were picked up throughout the day.
Einar explains that this seismicity is a continuation of activity in Barbarbunga following the Holuhraun eruption but that there are no signs of increased volcanic activity.
Icelandic Met Office specialists monitor seismicity in the area around the clock.
