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...

Heat Emergency Plan to be activated today as Washington DC temperatures set to hit 105F (41C)

Heat Emergency Plan will be activated today as DC temperatures set to hit 105F (41C) later in the week
The National Weather Service has issued a warning that the Heat Emergency Plan will be activated today, July 6, at 1 p.m. as the heat index is expected to reach 96 degrees later this week, according to a statement.
That means D.C. Fire and Emergency Medical Services Department and D.C. Water are urging those in the city to stay out of the heat while avoiding unauthorized use of fire hydrants, which can hamper firefighting and cause injury as well as flood streets and lower water pressure.
The forecast for Wednesday calls for scattered showers and thunderstorms primarily after 5 p.m, and a high near 92 during the day with relatively calm winds of about 5 mph.
The heat will continue to climb later this week, reaching its peak on Friday, the NWS reports.
It will also be dangerously high on Saturday and will be near 100 degrees both afternoons, with peak heat index values in the 100-105 degree range.
"Residents and visitors in the District can keep cool by staying in shade or air conditioning and drinking plenty of water," the statement adds.
"When the temperature or heat index reaches 95, residents are encouraged to take extra precautions against the heat.
If they do not live in an air-conditioned building, they may take refuge at a District recreation facility, senior center or other air-conditioned building.
