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 magnitude 6.0 - 148km NNE of Palue, Indonesia is the third major quake of December

Green alert for shaking-related fatalities and economic losses.
There is a low likelihood of casualties and damage.

A magnitude 6.0 - 148km NNE of Palue, Indonesia is the third major quake of December, it is the 127th of 2016.
2016 could register the lowest number of major quakes this century in one year, with just over three weeks of  December to go, another 5 or less magnitude 6 +ers would see the year total fall to less than 133.

2012 holds the lowest total so far this century with 133, with 2001 2nd lowest with 137.

By far the largest amount for a 12 month period was of course 2007 the year of the Fukushima disaster with 207.

Around 150 major quakes per year is the 21st century average.
