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...

Death toll from severe flooding in Colombia and Peru now at almost 400 hundred with around 250 still missing and 262 injured

The death toll from the landslides that devastated Colombia's southern city of Mocoa on Saturday has risen to 290.
The mudslides in Mocoa were caused by the overflow of three rivers passing through the city as a result of a heavy downpour on Friday night, which subsequently swept away several neighbourhoods. The National Institute of Legal Medicine and Forensic Sciences said in a statement that 290 people had died and so far 161 of the victim's bodies had been returned to their families.
According to the latest report from the Colombian Red Cross, at least 262 people had been injured with around 250 still missing.
Further south Peru's death toll from similar floods is at almost 100.
