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... Swansea City 0 v 1 Leeds United, 4 points needed from 3 games...

112 year old heat record in Phoenix tumbles as a high on Friday of 117 deg F (47.2 deg C) smashed the previous record of 115 deg F

According to the National Weather Service, meteorologists claim a 112 year old record heat record has been busted in Phoenix, Arizona.
A high on Friday of 117 deg F (47.2 deg C) smashed the previous record of 115 deg F going all the way back to 1905.
With an average high temperature of 107 deg F (42 deg C), an increase of 10 deg F.
As for climate change, (Global warming?) For me, reporting heatwaves around the world for the last five years, 2017 has seen a huge spike in recorded heatwaves, with Arizona, California, the Persian Gulf and parts of Australia often hitting 122 deg F (50 deg C).
I have no climate change agenda but my world (Holland) is seeing longer warmer summers with often temperatures which are hard to deal with and the winters are milder, we haven't had snow here for a few years now and the temperature rarely dip below freezing in the winter months.
