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.

A lightning storm has wreaked havoc in Dunedin, with surface flooding and lightning strikes forcing shops to close.
Locals ran for shelter as the storm struck mid-afternoon with heavy hail and torrential rain battering the southern city.
Some manhole covers were reported as lifting in the deluge.
Several shops on George St have closed due to flooding, with the city's main retail street lined with hail.
Firefighters have been kept busy, with several call-outs to water entering buildings.
Fire spokesman Andrew Norris said the fire service attended 45 call-outs, most to commercial properties in Dunedin's CBD.
At one point every fire truck in Dunedin was committed in the city.
"There is no significant damage," he said.
One Dowling St worker, who declined to be named, said water cascaded down the four storey building into their ground flood premise.
A Dunedin City Council spokesman said the city library was temporarily evacuated after water caused light fittings to short, setting off the fire alarm.
"We've had lots of calls from individual business from George St," the spokesman said.
"Many stores have been cluttered and we've had flooding in all sorts of places."
