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...

More flooding misery is expected for the UK toward the end of next week as the latest storm is expected to strike bringing torrential rain and possibly wind damage.
Parts of the UK are set to be unseasonably warm in the next few days with temperatures set to be around 16C, 61F which is nearly double for the time of the year.
Incoming cloud will trap warmth and deliver a 25C swing by Wednesday, a week after it was almost minus 10C.
Odds on a white Christmas in London are currently at 10/1, the longest offered in five years. However another storm is expected to hit Northern Ireland and Scotland on Friday which could result in more flooding.
An active storm track will set up across the United Kingdom during the end of next week resulting in an increased threat for wind storms and unfortunately more flooding.
The last five winters have been devastating for parts of the UK as massive storms roll in from the Atlantic bringing torrential downpours, last winter saw the wettest December since records began for Scotland and Wales, the fourth-wettest for Northern Ireland and the second-wettest overall for the UK and this winter is shaping up to be just as bad.
Warm, humid air carried by strong south-westerly winds influenced by the Atlantic jet stream is dumping huge volumes of rain onto Britain causing devastation to land and property and it looks like the Brit’s are going to have to get used to it!
