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...

Another cluster of aftershocks as more than hundred rattle Skagway Alaska after the two major quakes yesterday

Sent in by Sophie
A cluster of 136 aftershocks mag 2.5 or higher in the Saint Elias Mountains have been recorded since a magnitude 6.3  and a magnitude 6.2 struck Skagway Alaska yesterday.
There are no active volcanoes in the area.

It is the second massive cluster this week after a cluster of around 100 mid to large quakes in a 50km square area struck off the coast of Valparaiso Chile, see map below.

After the massive mag 7.1 quake which has since been downgraded by USGS to a mag 6.9. A cluster of 88 mid to high strength aftershocks struck, including two mag 5.9’s, a mag 5.7, with a further 15 mag 5 or higher.
The area has now calmed and the aftershocks have stopped

The cluster of quakes in Alaska and the ones off the coast of Chile are reminiscent of the build up to the massive mag 9.1 quake hit Honshu, Japan in 2011, killing more than 18,000 people and causing the Fukushima disaster, see map below.
