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...

Records tumble as nearly half of a months rain was dumped on Sydney in just one hour this week
Sydney has experienced a week of extreme rainfall and flooding after thunderstorms dumped more than two month's worth of rain on the city.
In just one hour on Tuesday morning, 48mm of rain fell in Marrickville, 45mm in Canterbury, and 35mm in Sydney's CBD.
This equalled the 48mm total that fell in January, with 32mm between 10.30 and 11am today and more than 50mm has fallen since 9am, making it the wettest day in Sydney since August 4 last year. Flooding was reported in Penrith, Parramatta, Wollongong, Campbelltown and Port Kembla, Marrickville, Zetland, Woollahra and Sydney's CBD. The State Emergency Service had to rescue 13 people trapped by floodwaters, mostly in Marrickville and Zetland.
An apartment building on Ewart Street in Marrickville was in danger of collapsing after a waterhole next to it filled up with water.
Seventeen residents have been evacuated but the threat has since eased and the building will be monitored overnight.
