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.

Undersea volcanic explosion blasts seawater as high as 10 meters (33 feet) above the surface of the Pacific at Iwo Jima Japan

Signs of undersea volcanic eruptions were detected at Iwo Jima, the site of one of the bloodiest battles in World War II, meteorological and defence officials said Wednesday.
Aerial photos taken by navy aircraft earlier Wednesday showed seawater shooting as high as 10 meters (33 feet) above the surface just off the island's southern coast, the Japan Meteorological Agency said.
The island, which has been renamed Ioto, has been showing increased volcanic activity since the weekend, the agency said, warning of more eruptions.
The island is 1,250 kilometers (780 miles) south of Tokyo.
Ioto last had an undersea explosion off its northern coast in 2013, and small overland explosions at few places in 2015, the agency said.
Defense officials said troops stationed on the island are safe and there are no evacuation plans.
The island is closed to civilians, except for those with permits to search for the remains of more than 10,000 soldiers still unaccounted for or to attend memorial services and other special events. Virtually all of the Japanese soldiers defending the tiny island died in the battle in early 1945 which claimed 21,570 Japanese and 6,821 American lives.
Japan has about 100 active volcanoes and is frequently jolted by earthquakes.
Earlier this month, a magnitude 6.7 quake on the northern island of Hokkaido killed more than 40 and injured hundreds.
