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 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 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 etchelons of English football and I can once more embrace my love with happiness.
If you are wondering why my blog has changed colours it is in support of my wonderful lady during her next five games. (MOT)

Earthquakes in strange places: A shallow powerful mag 5.1 downgraded by USGS shakes the second largest meteorite crater in the world

USGS
An earthquake initially measuring greater than magnitude 5 on the Richter scale has been recorded near the famous Wolfe Creek Crater in Western Australia - the second largest meteorite crater in the world.
According to GeoScience Australia, the quake struck in the extremely remote area of the vast state near Sturt Creek, close to Northern Territory border, around 12.21pm AWST (2.21pm AEST). Preliminary information has the tremor measuring in at a strong magnitude 5.1.

This, however, is likely to be either downgraded or upgraded once all data has been analysed. GeoScience Australia estimates that the quake could have felt by people up to 187km away and could have caused damage within a 15km radius.
The quake, however, is unlikely to have caused any damage or injury, given its extremely remote location.
The Wolfe Creek Crater and tiny outback town of Sturt Creek, home to around 500 residents, featured in the 2005 Australian horror movie, Wolf Creek and again in its sequel, released in 2014.
