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...

Agriculture officials say a commercial chicken breeding facility in south-central Tennessee has been hit by a strain of bird flu.
The state Agriculture Department says in a news release that tests confirmed the presence of the Highly Pathogenic Avian Influenza, or HPAI, at a facility in Lincoln County.
The facility alerted the state veterinarian's office on Friday about an increase in chicken deaths.
The statement did not name the facility.
The facility and about 30 other poultry farms within about a six-mile radius of the site are under quarantine.
Officials said HPAI poses no risk to the food supply, and no affected chickens entered the food chain. The statement says the most recent U.S. detection of HPAI was in January 2016 in a commercial turkey flock in Indiana.
