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...

Thousands of fish get 'cooked' in Puget Sound Washington after hot weather claim scientists

Thousands of anchovies washed up on the shores of Puget Sound in Washington last week after hot weather over the weekend changed the feeding patterns of the fish, state wildlife officials say.
The fish reportedly began to wash up on beaches at Case Inlet near Belfair, Washington, early last week and continued to do so throughout the week,
KOMO News reported. "It's sad. It's really sad," resident Kristen Wiseman told KOMO of the THOUSANDS of dead fish scattered on the beach near her home.
State fish biologists told the news station the hot weather last weekend prompted the fish to swim closer to the shore to feed on plankton.
When the tide went out, the anchovies became trapped and died from a lack of oxygen.
"And so now it's lots of fish using up lots of oxygen trapped in shallow rapidly warming water and effectively what happens is the fish get cooked," Dr. Dayv Lowry, a Department of Fish and Wildlife research scientist, told KOMO.
According to meteorologist Chris Dolce, temperatures in the area reached the mid-80s over the holiday weekend, which is about 20 degrees warmer than average for the area in late May.
