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...

A record heatwave in Iran has temperatures reaching an incredible 50C (122F) resulting in severe living conditions and many people hospitalized

The highest recorded temperature in Iran's southeastern Sistan-and-Baluchestan province, 50C (122F) has caused severe living conditions for the people, Press TV reported on Sunday.
Dozens of people have been taken to hospitals, while livestock and poultry also suffered and offices were forced to close.
On Friday, the prayers' leaders across the province appealed to the government for help, demanding a write-off or discount in electricity prices in the wake of a record heatwave.
On Sunday, Iran's Energy Minister Hamid Chitchian visited Konarak city in the extreme south of Sistan-and-Baluchestan to observe the situation and compile a report for the government to take necessary measures.
Chitchian pledged to tackle water and electricity shortages in the province, saying the government is about to build an 800-megawatt power station, which will be funded by energy ministry.
Sistan-and-Baluchestan, home to some three million people and to a major Sunni community, is Iran's largest province bordering the Sea of Oman and Pakistan.
