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... Swansea City 0 v 1 Leeds United, 4 points needed from 3 games...

Hundreds of dead birds found along a beach in Costa Grande, Mexico

Translated from Spanish
Hundreds of dead birds were found dead in the sand strip of La Ropa beach, Costa Grande, Mexico last weekend.
The dead birds were found in gardens as well as restaurant and house roof near the beach in this port off the Costa Grande.
Tourists and restaurant owners located on the beach were surprised to see a large number of dead birds, especially zanates and magpies.
They explained that some animals were found alive, but they died minutes later, while others showed difficulty to fly.
They indicated that the area had not been fumigated, so they ruled out intoxication as the possible cause of massive mortality.
In addition, they noted that birds feed mainly on what people give them.
José Antonio Solís Bucio, a taxi driver at the La Ropa beach site, reported that, very early on, public service workers were preparing to collect all dead birds before tourists arrived.
"I counted in a space of the entrance to the beach like 35 dead birds," he said.
So far no authority on Ecology or Environment has made any statement about the situation.
