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...

Thousands stung by a jellyfish invasion in Queensland Australia in yet another case of the 21st-century indicator to the demise of our oceans

It is one of the 21st-century indicators to the demise of the world's oceans and the problem is exploding around the world.
jellyfish invasions are washing ashore all over the globe because of a lack of predators in the ocean to eat them.
Vast numbers of bluebottle jellyfish have been pushed ashore in Queensland, Australia, stinging thousands of people and forcing the closure of swim spots.
Surf Life Saving Queensland said thousands of people received treatment at the weekend.
Bluebottle stings are painful but typically not life-threatening.
according to the BBC, unusually strong winds pushed the jellyfish colonies towards beaches.
About 13,000 stings were recorded in the past week - three times more than in the corresponding period last year.
Most incidents took place in Queensland's heavily populated Gold Coast and Sunshine Coast regions. Bluebottle jellyfish colonies appear like blue-tinged sacs which measure up to 15cm (6 inches) long. People can be stung in the water or on the sand.
The stings are typically mild and can be treated with ice or hot water, however, some people had required treatment by paramedics at the weekend, Surf Life Saving Queensland (SLSQ) said.
The number of those cases was not recorded. The jellyfish activity forced the closure of busy beaches.
