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...

Storm Axel brings worst Baltic Sea flooding in ten years!

The worst flooding to hit Germany's north-eastern coast since 2006 has caused serious damage, with weather forecasters predicting storms in other parts of the country on Thursday.
Water levels along the Baltic Sea coast rose late Wednesday to between 1.5 and 1.7 metres above their normal levels before dropping to around one meter above average, according to the Maritime and Hydrography Agency.
In the cities of Luebeck and Flensburg cars were carried away by the flooding and parts of Luebeck's World Heritage-listed old town became impassable for pedestrians.
"W e can't comment yet on the extent of the damage,'' a police spokesperson said.
However, Luebeck's famous brick gothic Holsten Gate had been spared by the floods.
On the island of Usedom parts of the beach-side promenade as well as staircases and food stalls were ripped away by the flooding.
"It's no children's birthday party," said Achim Froitzheim, spokesperson for the region of Vorpommern-Greifswald.
It's worse than expected."
Germany has been hit by severe winds and icy conditions in recent days, leading to dozens of road accidents.
Wind speeds of up to 123 km per hour and temperatures as low as minus 20 degrees Celsius have been recorded by the German Weather Service in what has been dubbed Storm Axel.
The storm is now moving across the Baltic towards Belarus.
Stormy weather was also predicted for eastern and southern Germany, with snow and sleet expected on Thursday.
