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...

Australian Bushfires Create Risk of Drinking Water Contamination: Toxic algae bloom from the bushfires are causing another threat to their most precious commodity,

Researchers test the water quality - ABC News

Australia can’t seem to catch a break in 2020.  After the horrendous bushfire crisis, which killed more than a billion animals, record-breaking heat, crippling drought and this month record-rainfall bringing mass flooding, they are now facing another threat.

Drinking water in Australia is scarce enough in most parts of the country but now the Aussies are facing another threat to their most precious commodity, drinking water contamination from the bushfires. According to, the fires torched 42,000 sq miles. Mudslides are washing ash and debris into waterways. Some of the ash and debris contains toxic chemicals from the 3,000 homes which were destroyed in the fires, these homes hosted pollutants and chemicals which have found their way into the water system. The burned vegetation has released excessive nitrogen and phosphorus waterways which can cause toxic algae blooms.
