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...

Another massive coronal hole has opened up on our Sun and is facing Earth! Chance of major quakes in the coming days!

Another huge coronal hole has opened up on our Sun and is facing Earth and is spewing streams of solar wind towards Earth at an incredible 750 kilometers per second.
It’s another massive hole in the Sun’s atmosphere and could influence major quake activity here on Earth in the coming days.
The whole is so huge it stretches more than halfway across the face of the Sun.

Spaceweather reports: This is a "coronal hole" (CH)--a region where the sun's magnetic field opens up and allows solar wind to escape. NASA's STEREO spacecraft recently sampled the stream flowing from this hole and the velocity was unusually high: 750 km/s. Such a fast-moving stream will almost surely spark Arctic auroras when it arrives on Feb. 1st.

The action could begin even before the stream arrives. NOAA forecasters say there is a 65% chance of geomagnetic storms on Jan. 31st when Earth crosses through a fold in the heliospheric current sheet. Many people have never heard of the heliospheric current sheet, yet it is one of the biggest things in the solar system--a vast undulating system of electrical currents shaped like the skirt of a ballerina. Earth dips in and out of it all the time. These crossings are called "solar sector boundary crossings," and they can cause high-latitude auroras

This is interesting. Last night Feb 1st, my dog began howling which he never has done before and an air purifier and a radio turned on by themselves, between 2:00 & 3:00 AM.

When I arrived at work a co-worker told me a very similar story of his dog and a radio and intercom system.
