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...

Deadly heatwave continues in India as 21 people die this week with temperatures hitting 45C 120F

The continuing heat wave condition in Telangana has claimed over 21 lives in the state over the past week.
People have succumbed to heat strokes in Nalgonda, Nizamabad, Warangal and Sangareddy districts as humidity dipped to 13%.
Mercury soared to 45 degrees Celsius in the coal mining areas of Kothagudem and Mancherial. Barring a few places in the southern parts closer to Andhra Pradesh, most of Telangana sizzled above 40 degrees, severely affecting life in the areas.
Hyderabad scorched at 43 degrees, the highest since April 14, 2016.
Many stayed indoors, fearing a heat stroke, leaving streets empty by mid-day.
State transport busses and shared autos soldiered on in their effort to ferry people from the Secunderabad railway station and other localities.
The mercury level also touched a new high of 43 degrees in Adilabad and Nizamabad. Nalgonda smouldered at 41 degrees, while Karimnagar and Bhadrachalam seared at 40 degrees.
Director of the weather office Dr Nagarathnam said heat wave conditions would continue over the next 48 hours.
"A weather system over the east-central Bay of Bengal is sapping the available moisture in the air, which generally keeps the weather cool on land mass," she said.
In Andhra Pradesh, Kurnool in Rayalaseema sizzled at 42 degrees, while Tirupati reeled under a harrowing 42 degrees.
