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...

As Tropical Storm Noru lingers off the eastern coast of Japan tens of thousands of people in northeast Japan were told to evacuate their homes on Sunday as heavy rain caused major flooding and cut some rail links, authorities said.
The storm follows freak rains in southwestern Japan earlier this month that left at least 25 people dead.
Almost 25,000 people in Akita prefecture were ordered to evacuate and around 65,000 more people were advised to leave or told to prepare to leave the area, an official at Akita prefecture told Reuters. Several rivers were flooding and more than 100 houses had been inundated by floodwaters, the official said.
No injuries or deaths have been reported, but the authorities were still investigating, he added.
Some bullet trains running to and from Akita have been suspended because of the heavy rains,
East Japan Railway said on its website.
"There is a significant amount of water accumulating in the land.
Even if the heavy rains stop, we will continue to warn people to stay vigilant," the Akita prefecture official said.
