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...

Bogoslof volcano Alaska spews ash and steam 34,000 feet into the sky bringing threat to airliners operating between North America and Asia

An Alaska volcano erupted Tuesday night and spewed ash for more than an hour.
The Alaska Volcano Observatory says Bogoslof (BOH-gohs-lawf) Volcano erupted at 10:32 p.m. and continued for 73 minutes. A pilot reported the eruption produced an ash cloud that reached 34,000  feet and the observatory issued a warning to pilots.
Wind pushed the cloud southwest.
Ash from southwest Alaska volcanos is a threat to airliners operating between North America and Asia when a cloud rises above 20,000 feet.
Ash can harm and stop jet engines.
Bogoslof has been erupting periodically since mid-December.
The observatory says additional explosions producing high-altitude ash could occur at any time.
The volcano is 850 miles southwest of Anchorage in the Aleutian Islands.
