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...

And the records keep tumbling, yesterday reports came from Queensland that 1 year's rain fell in just 7 days after a month of a record-breaking heatwave.
Today the Weather Channel has reported 6ft, (almost 2 metres) of snow has fallen in just 24 hours in parts of California breaking a 100-year record.
The incredible amounts of snow have fallen throughout parts of the Mountain West since last Friday after a one-two punch from winter storms Kai and Lucian.
The Sierra Nevada, straddling the border between California and Nevada, has been particularly hard-hit, where one ski resort tallied 6 feet of snow in just one day.
Taking that crown is June Mountain, east of Yosemite National Park. June Mountain reported 72 inches of new snow in the 24 hours ending 9 a.m. PST Sunday morning.
The storm-total snowfall at June Mountain from Friday through mid-morning Sunday was measured at 96 inches, according to the National Weather Service in Reno, Nevada.
Yes, that's 8 feet (2.5 metres) of snow in less than three days.
And it was too much for the ski resort to handle; June Mountain was closed on Monday as workers attempted to dig out, the resort.
