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...

Deadly hurricane ‘Otto’: Extremely late hurricane to strike furthest south ever!

  • "A storm of Otto's expected strength has never made landfall so far south in the Caribbean, and there is no record of any hurricane striking Costa Rica," the Washington Post quoted weather expert Bob Henson as saying.
  • The paper says that very few hurricanes have formed so late in the season - which ends on 30 November - and that across the Atlantic since 1851 only 35 storms have reached tropical storm intensity on or after 15 November.

At least four people have died in Panama in severe weather caused by the approach of hurricane Otto, officials say.
Two victims were killed in a mudslide, a girl drowned in a river and a boy died when a tree fell on the car taking him to school.
The Panamanian education minister has suspended classes until Thursday.
The US National Hurricane Center says Otto is now hurricane strength and approaching Costa Rica and Nicaragua.


Panamanian officials said about 50 homes had been destroyed by mudslides.
Also in Panama, one Colombian man is missing after having been dragged away by a river swollen by heavy rainfall.
The governments of Nicaragua and Costa Rica have issued a hurricane watch from Costa Rica's southern border to the city of Bluefields in Nicaragua.
The National Hurricane Center (NHC) forecasts that Otto will make landfall in Costa Rica or Nicaragua on Thursday.
Meteorologists have warned of life-threatening flash floods and mudslides in this area.
There is also a likelihood of dangerous surf and rip current conditions over the next several days along the coasts of Panama, Costa Rica and Nicaragua, the NHC says.
