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...

BOOM! Mexican colossus Popocatepetl known as El Popo spews ash 1km into the sky with a series of exhalations and tremors (spectacular video)

Popocatepetl began the day with a series of exhalations and tremors that lasted almost three hours, continuing the heightened activity seen over the previous 24 hours.
During that time the volcano, also known as El Popo, emitted 209 low-intensity exhalations of vapour, water and ash.
"The series of volcanic exhalations and tremors that started today at 5:23am concluded at 8:19am, with a total duration of 176 minutes," said a report issued this morning by Cenapred, the National Disaster Prevention Center.
"The height of the volcanic cloud reached an average of one kilometre above the crater, and the winds spread it to the east-southeast."
Along with the plume sighted this morning, fragments of incandescent rock were ejected from the crater starting last night, extending 500 meters around it.
After the continued exhalation, the volcano continued to emit gases through the morning, with the plume constantly drifting in the same direction.
The volcano alert for Popocatepetl, located in central Mexico, remains at yellow, phase two, but Cenapred has added the precaution of warning the public living nearby to stay away from it, as the constant emission of material presents a real danger.
Cenapred specialists forecast that low to intermediate explosive activity at the volcano will continue, and that light to moderate ashfall is to be expected in the closest towns and villages.
Short-range pyroclastic and mudflows are also to be expected.
