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...

50,000 animals dead after 6 months rain fall in just two weeks in Corrientes, Argentina: Situation to worsen because of destroyed pastures

Translated from Spanish
A tragic dramatic scenario has occurred for livestock farmers of Corrientes, Argentina as 50,000 animals have died due to to flooding in the area.
The province of Corrientes has lost an incredible 2.5 million hectares to the flooding with the northern parts of the province being the most affected.
More than 6 months rain has fallen in the area in the last two weeks.
It is estimated that there are 1.5 million heads of cattle throughout the affected region.
Manuel Garcia Olano, Secretary of Agriculture of Corrientes, was able to fly over the area and told reporters that "the situation is devastating.
There is a lot of dead property," he said, because animals have not have to eaten for days and died. " The highest percentage of mortality occurs in calves, but there are also sheep, pigs and birds."
"And in addition, we estimate that when it stops raining, the situation will be worse because in Corrientes, the grass grows only in the spring, so the animals that survive will not have pastures to eat."
