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...

It's a "red" aviation warning, the highest level: Alaska's Bogoslof volcano erupted Monday sending an ash cloud about 6 miles into the sky.

Alaska's Bogoslof volcano erupted again Monday morning, sending an ash cloud about 6 miles into the sky.
The "significant explosive eruption" started around 10 a.m. on the remote island in the Bering Sea, northwest of Unalaska Island, and continued for about three hours, the Alaska Volcano Observatory reported.
In response, the observatory issued a "red" aviation warning, the highest level.
Since mid-December, the restless Bogoslof has erupted about 60 times, according to Hans Schwaiger, a geophysicist at the observatory.
"On average, it's once or twice a week," he said.
"But it's been a couple of weeks since the last eruption."
Like the earlier eruptions, the one on Monday came with "very little to no warning," said Michelle Coombs, the observatory's scientist-in-charge.
Around 10:45 a.m., a pilot in the area reported that he spotted an ash cloud rising from Bogoslof and reaching about 32,000 feet in the air, the observatory said.
Coombs said that seismic, infrasound, satellite and lightning data in the area also indicated that Bogoslof had once again erupted.
While the main eruption ended by 1:30 p.m., ash was continuing to form a cloud attached to the volcano, the observatory reported.
Strong winds going south over Umnak Island carried the cloud over the Pacific Ocean and away from Unalaska, said Dave Schneider, a geophysicist at the observatory.
Schneider said he had received no reports of the eruption impacting Aleutian communities. "Presumably the vast amount of airplanes will divert around the small area impacted by the cloud," he said.
The observatory described the length of Monday's eruption as "longer-lived" than most in Bogoslof's string of eruptions since December, and Coombs described the height of the ash cloud as "middle of the pack" for the volcano.
