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...

Officials confirm a low-pathogenic bird flu strain has been detected in a Jennie-O Turkey Store operation in western Wisconsin.
The U.S. Department of Agriculture posted notice of the case to the Organization for Animal Health's website Tuesday.
Austin, Minnesota-based Hormel Foods Corp., which owns Willmar, Minnesota-based Jennie-O, confirmed the H5N2 strain was detected Saturday at its Barron, Wisconsin, operation.
The Star Tribune reports it is the second case of bird flu reported at a U.S. commercial poultry operation in a week.
The first case, reported late last week at a Tennessee chicken farm, is the highly pathogenic bird flu (HPAI) H7.
In a statement, Hormel said Jennie-O has no turkey flocks in that area of the country.

There is a large surge in human cases of deadly bird flu in China which is causing alarm amongst scientists.
A significant increase since October 2016 and the flu strain is evolving
