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...

USGS quell concerns regarding the stability of 2nd Hawaii volcano Mauna Loa as hundreds of quakes are still rattling the Kilauea volcano

More than 100 quakes a day are still rumbling around Kilauea, map USGS
USGS is busy quelling rumours over residents concerns regarding the stability of Mauna Loa, a second volcanic peak on Hawaii Island.
Concerns over the stability of Mauna Loa have spread like wildfire on social media sites claiming an eruption is imminent, however, USGS has said Mauna Loa is not erupting and there is no evidence it is about to erupt.
According to Hawaii News Now, the new lava delta formed has grown to 200 acres and continues to expand while lava pours into the ocean at two different points.
The lava reaching the ocean is all from fissure 8, which remained active overnight, into Saturday morning, scientists said.
Lava gushed 130-160 feet in the air with occasionally higher bursts, USGS officials said.
A mag 5.2 quake struck the Kilauea summit early Saturday morning and more than 150 smaller quakes struck the area yesterday as seismic activity is still producing more than 100 quakes a day, see photo above.
Hawaiian Volcano Observatory officials reported another explosive eruption at Kilauea's summit. Based on available indicators, the ash plume swelled to 10,000 feet in the air.
Cracking and slumping of the Halemaumau crater walls are clearly evident in aerial views, USGS said. Steam plumes have been rising from within the crater, as well as from cracks adjacent to the crater — which are more signs of ongoing seismic activity.
