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...

Hurricane Irma update! Barbuda, Saint-Barthelemy and Saint Martin battered by near 200mph winds

Sent in by Petra, Curacao
French islands Saint-Barthelemy and Saint-Martin have also been 'battered extremely violently' with even sturdy government buildings destroyed along with Barbuda and Antigua.  
It's the most powerful hurricane in ever recorded the Atlantic basin with winds approaching 200mph and the hurricane is the size of France and the experts are expecting a catastrophe.
Hurricane Irma, packing winds of 185 m.p.h., made landfall in Barbuda, an island of about 2,000 people, around 2 a.m. Eastern on Wednesday, the National Hurricane Center said.
There were reports of damage to buildings, including a police station, and of phone lines being down. Around 8 a.m., the eye had moved away from Barbuda and was passing over St. Martin, the hurricane center said.
The northern eye wall was "pounding Anguilla," the center said.
The Category 5 storm was churning toward Puerto Rico and threatening havoc and widespread destruction on several nearby islands, including St. Kitts and Nevis; the Virgin Islands; and Hispaniola, shared by the Dominican Republic and Haiti.
Cuba is also threatened by the hurricane.
