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...

Mount St. Helens considered the most destructive volcanic eruption in U.S. history in 1982 showing signs of "recharging!"

With well over 100 earthquakes detected on Mount St. Helens since early April, things are getting a little rumbly up there.
The earthquakes are likely a sign of the volcano "recharging," as magma moves beneath it again, according to the U.S. Geological Survey.
Coincidentally, yesterday marked 37 years since the mountain blew its top, sending ash 80,000 feet in the air and destroying a swath of the landscape 23 miles wide and 19 miles long with a combination of the blast, landslide and volcanic mud flows (lahars).
The eruption killed 57 people and is considered the most destructive volcanic eruption in U.S. history.
But fear not, as the earthquakes have come to be almost common since the mountain began its recharging process back in 2008, with swarms detected regularly.
