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 visible image of Blas from NOAA's GOES-West satellite taken on July 7 at 1200 UTC (8 a.m. EDT) revealed the eye opened wide.
GOES-West saw a large 25 to 30 nautical mile (28.7 to 34.5 mile/46.3 to 55.5 wide eye surrounded

Hurricane Blas has become a Category 3 or major hurricane, the first of the season for the East Pacific Basin. Blas is currently centered about 1,175 miles west-southwest of the southern tip of Baja California, with maximum-sustained winds of 125 mph, reports Accuweather.
The storm continues to move through a region of weak wind shear and very warm ocean temperatures.
These favorable conditions will support maintenance of major hurricane status or perhaps even a bit of strengthening over the next 6-12 hours.
The cooler sea-surface temperatures and increased shear experienced will cause Blas to weaken starting later today and into Friday.
The hurricane should weaken to a minimal hurricane on Friday and then weaken to a tropical storm on Saturday.
Further weakening will cause the tropical cyclone to degenerate into a remnant low on Sunday or Sunday night.
Blas will remain well away from any landmass.
