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...

Costa Rica colossus Turrialba Volcano and it's neighbor Poas Volcano break a period of relative calm with with eruptions and activity

Turrialba Volcano had a new eruption this Friday, May 19, breaking its period of "relative calm". Although both eruptions are considered small, they are a reminder of the fact that this volcano continues with high activity and precautions and security measures should be taken seriously.
The eruptions from the Turrialba volcano usually contain ash, yet, because of the rainfall that has affected the country these past few days it has not been dispersed as far as it usually does.
The column reached 500 meters over the crater.
During the past 24 hours the low amplitude tremor that had been reported in the past weeks has increased to moderate and has remained continuous.
Poas Volcano, is emanating a constant column of water vapors and gases that is visible from different points of the central valley.
The park remains closed to visitors for security reasons.
The closure of this National Park represents a big loss of income for the National System of Conservation Areas (SINAC)since it is the second most visited National Park in Costa Rica According to data provided by SINAC, the park is visited by an average 20,531 national tourists every month and 17,345 foreigners, this translates into close to $260,000.00 a month.

Earth is being bombarded at the moment by solar wind at speeds of nearly 700 km/s from a massive Coronal hole on our Sun facing Earth, which is though to influence volcanic activity and large quakes.
