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...

The Rabaul Volcanological Observatory Papua New Guinea claim activity on Kadovar island volcano remains "dynamic" white steam plume rising

The tiny island off the north coast of PNG's mainland erupted earlier this month.
Over 600 residents were promptly evacuated from the island whose vegetation has been covered in ash.
The Rabaul Volcanological Observatory said activity on Kadovar remains "dynamic" and that a continuous white steam plume is rising from its southeast vent up to 800 meters above the island.
It said there were several "moderate" explosions from Kadovar at the weekend, and that the volcano's ash clouds had drifted hundreds of kilometers southwards.
According to the Observatory, Kadovar's southeast coastal vent, which was significantly breached this month, glows red with lava at night.
It said that due to the steepness of the volcano, and the lava dome formed on it, Kadovar's southern flank may collapse seaward.
"The region to the south records a debris avalanche," said the Observatory in its latest situation report, warning that more landslides were possible.
Both the national government and the East Sepik provincial government have advised local communities that there was a small risk a tsunami from Kadovar's volcanic activity.
The Observatory explained that Kadovar's continuing sulfur dioxide emissions, clusters of high-frequency earthquakes, and the ongoing eruptive activity indicate that the situation is dynamic.
"It is still possible, however, that any new magma may stall before it reaches the surface."
