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...

Arctic Beluga whale thousands of miles from home spotted in the warm waters of the UK heading towards London in the River Thames


It's thousands of mile from home, it lives in the cold waters of the Arctic and Greenland but yesterday a beluga whale was spotted heading towards London in the River Thames.
Beluga whales can grow up to 20ft in length and are usually at home in the icy waters around Greenland, Svalbard or the Barents Sea, so why it's so far south in the warm September waters of the UK is a mystery.
According to the BBC, it was first spotted by ecologist and ornithologist Dave Andrews on Tuesday, who said it had been feeding around barges near Gravesend in Kent.
Rescue teams are on standby in case the whale, which usually lives in the Arctic, gets into danger.
Conservationists are waiting to see if the "very lost" beluga whale in the River Thames has headed back out to sea.
Ships in the river were being urged to keep clear and the public was asked not to take to the water to watch it.
Julia Cable, the national coordinator for the British Divers Marine Life Rescue, said: "It's possible that it lost its way after a navigational error, that it has taken a wrong turn. We haven't got an idea about the health of the animal.
"These animals can navigate in shallow coastal water so hopefully it will swim away."
She said any noise in the water could impair its sophisticated sonar navigation system.
