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...

41 day streak of temperatures at 90 degrees or higher going back to June is new heat record for consecutive days in Downtown Sacramento

Downtown Sacramento on Monday broke its record for the number of consecutive days that temperatures topped out at 90 degrees or higher.
A high of 90 degrees was reached shortly before 3 p.m., marking a 41-day streak, according to the National Weather Service.
The previous record was 40 consecutive days, set in 1992.
The last time downtown Sacramento saw a high of less than 90 degrees was June 27.
The 40-day streak in 1992 ran from July 13 through Aug. 21.
"We've just been under a ridge of high pressure for a lot of the summer," said Cory Mueller, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service.
That has created the extended period of warm weather, he noted.
The streak is expected to continue, with the forecast calling for high temperatures in the 90s at least through Sunday.
Other areas across the Sacramento Valley are coming close to breaking their records, he said, noting that Redding, which typically experiences higher temperatures than Sacramento during the summer, has experienced a similar streak.
