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...

State of Colorado heat wave continues well into November

It might be just another fall on the Front Range Colorado, but temperatures have remained far above average.
According to Loveland weather spotter Chris Knoetgen, the average high temperature in October was 74 degrees - 9.4 degrees above the average high temperature for the month.
Following suit, the average low temperature for October was 35.7 degrees compared with an average of 31.9 degrees - and the month's overall average temperature fell at 54.9 degrees, 6.6 degrees above average.
"Denver had a pretty warm month also," Knoetgen wrote in an email.
"They came in as the fourth warmest October since records began. "
Johnstown resident Bill Kardoes was out fishing at Pinewood Reservoir on Monday morning.
He said regardless of temperature, he tries to go fishing every day.
"I've been fishing for 80 years now.
I was born on a river," he said. "... I go fishing every day if I can, beats the hell out of sitting in a chair."
Knoetgen stated Loveland has had 11.98 inches of precipitation this year.
"It is going to have to be a very wet two months to get us up to the average of 15.61 (inches)," Knoetgen wrote.
"It just doesn't look good right now ..." Tuesday's forecast calls for sunny, with a light breeze and a high near 65 degrees.
Temperatures will dip down to around 37 degrees Tuesday night.
Wednesday should be sunny with a high around 73 degrees. So, as it seems, Kardoes will have at least one more week of warm temperatures and sunny skies to compliment his fishing trips.
"If I catch four fish then I have four fish for dinner - if I don't, my wife cooks something else," Kardoes said. "... My motto is I go fishing, I don't go catching."
