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...

Mystery object which crashed in Finland causing a huge blaze in the sky is thought to have been a satellite or meteorite

A probable meteorite caused a huge blaze in the sky and major noise in a large area of northern Finland on Thursday evening, media reports said.
Based on phone calls from the public, the regional alarm center in Oulu first gave an alert about "a medium level air crash" before 7 p.m. local time (17:00 GMT), but the information was soon corrected as air traffic control could not verify any plane being missing.
Following the exclusion of an air crash, the Oulu alarm center concluded that it was very likely a meteorite.
Jukka Harmanen, a rescue service chief in the Lapland region, told newspaper Kaleva that a fireball was first seen in the sky, followed a minute later by a major sound wave.
"It was like the sound of an artillery barrage," he said. Calls to the rescue services came from an area hundreds of kilometers in diameter.
The southern limit was the town of Kokkola.
Images were uploaded to social media by residents.
The northernmost calls came from Nellimo, in Norway.
Harmanen said he was pleased with the way the alarm system was now tested.
He said the information about the situation reached "higher levels" very soon, before the actual nature of the event could be verified.
He did not define what the "higher levels" meant.
Finnish authorities did not receive any reports about actual damage on the ground.
Rescue supervisor Mauri Saniola in Inari told national broadcaster Yle that windows had been rattling and pressure had been noticed inside buildings.
Jouko Manninen, a researcher of space physics at the Sodankyla observatory, told Yle late Thursday the object could have been part of a man made object such as a satellite.
Manninen was unwilling to suspect the object was a missile, also in consideration of its direction of movement.
