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...

A small spike in major quakes brings a deep mag 6.2, Philippines; it's the third major quake of August and only the 57th of 2017

USGS
Green alert for shaking-related fatalities and economic losses.
There is a low likelihood of casualties and damage.
A  deep mag 6.2, Philippines, is the third major quake of August and only the 57th of 2017 which is a low count unprecedented this century.
This week has seen a small spike in major quakes with a tragedy unfolding in China with reports of more than 100 dead and almost 150,000 houses damaged.
Chinese monitors say they've detected multiple landslides but no major building collapses following a powerful earthquake in the country's mountainous southwest that killed at least 100 people.
The official Xinhua News Agency said the Institute of Remote Sensing and Digital Earth under the Chinese Academy of Sciences drew the conclusion from satellite imagery collected after the magnitude 6.5 quake struck Tuesday night.
Another 247 people were injured, 40 seriously, by the temblor, which China's earthquake monitoring agency measured at magnitude 7.0.
At least five of those killed were tourists and thousands of visitors had been evacuated by Thursday amid continuing aftershocks.
Most of the deaths and injuries were recorded in Zhangzha township, near the famed Jiuzhaigou national park that is listed by UNESCO as a world heritage site.
