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...

Large meteorite turns Pakistan's night sky into day followed by huge explosions leaving residents terrified.

A suspected meteor lit up the skies in Gilgit-Baltistan late on Wednesday, leaving residents puzzled and terrified.
Bright light trails could be seen over G-B's skies only for only a few seconds, but the sonic boom that followed some five seconds later was more widely heard.
The 'blasts' could be heard in areas such as Gilgit, Ghizer, Diamer and Skardu at roughly 9:15 am.
"I was near my house when suddenly I saw a bright light in the sky," said Jehangir Naji, a Gilgit-based journalist.
"The light was followed by huge explosions," Naji added.
Shabuddin Ghori, another journalist in Chilas town of Diamer district posted online that the valley heard mysterious explosions after it was seemingly lit up by a star.
Jabir Ali, another resident, said that he saw a light heading towards Gilgit.
The Gilgit Information Department released a statement saying that a large meteorite has passed over Gilgit and Ghizer.
Further, the statement said, the object was travelling very low and illuminated the surrounding areas in the process.
"It broke the sound barrier, causing the 'explosions' heard in all villages from Gilgit to Shandur Top," the statement read. Meteors are pieces of comet or asteroid from outer space that create a fireball as they hit the Earth's atmosphere.
Those that survive the intense heat and friction and reach the surface without breaking up are known as meteorites, and are sought after by scientists for the information they can give information about the early solar system.
It was not clear if the meteor crashed or broke up in the sky.
The terrain between the city of Gilgit and the Wakhan Corridor is extremely remote and home to some of the highest mountains in the world.
There were no immediate reports of any meteor in Afghanistan.
The military released no official statement on the incident, and authorities from Pakistan's space agency, the Space and Upper Atmosphere Research Commission, could not immediately comment.
