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 Karymsky Volcano Kamchatka in eastern Russia explodes plumes of ash spreading almost 100 km: Incredible footage


A helicopter tour guide filmed incredible high-definition aerial footage of a Russian volcano as it spewed plumes of ash into the sky.
The eruption was so severe that a Volcanic Ash Advisory has been issued for the region.
The Karymsky Volcano in Kamchatka, eastern Russia, is one of the most active volcanoes in the region - which is home to more than 100 active volcanoes.
Local tour guide Aleksandr Ostrowski, 27, said he filmed the eruption while flying to the Valley of Geysers via helicopter. Plumes of ash from the volcano have spread for about 92 km according to the Kamchatka Volcanic Eruption Response Team (KVERT), who have categorized Karymsky's current state as orange, meaning "erupting or restless".
Ash eruptions of up to 19,700 feet (6km) could occur "at any time", KVERT warns, which is likely to have an effect on low-flying aircraft.
Previous eruptions from Karymsky have been described as 'Vulcanian'.
Such eruptions can involve large metre-size rocks being thrown several kilometres into the air and usually end with a flow of viscous lava.
