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.

A mag 6.2 - 143km ESE of Katsuura, Japan is the 9th major quake of September

A magnitude 6.2 - 143km ESE of Katsuura, Japan is the 9th major quake of September and the 101st this year.
Earlier in the week a magnitude 6.1 also close to Japan was special in that it was this years 100th major quake.
Although the quake shook Tokyo there is a low likelihood of casualties and damage.
Overall, the population in this region resides in structures that are resistant to earthquake shaking, though some vulnerable structures exist.
With approximately three and a half months left to the end of this year we could be looking at around 130 major quakes for the year.
That could well be the lowest total in one year since the 133 recorded in 2012.
2007 and 2011 have the highest total ever with 196 and 207 respectively, see below.
