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 than 71,000 homes are still without power following the snowstorm that hit Chile's capital earlier this weekend, electric utility company Enel said Sunday.
The Las Condes, Vitacura, La Reina, Lo Barnechea, Nunoa and Providencia neighborhoods, all located on the east side of Santiago, are the areas with the largest number of homes without electricity.
Some utility customers have been without power for more than 30 hours, Enel said.
The snowstorm hit the capital on Saturday, toppling hundreds of trees that fell into power lines, causing outages in different sections of the grid.
Utility crews are working to restore power to affected customers, Enel said, adding that more than 300,000 homes were initially left without electricity.
Chile's capital was blanketed this weekend by the biggest snowfall in decades, with some residents grumbling about blocked roads and downed power lines, while others made snowmen or tossed snowballs.
Tens of thousands of people had their power knocked out in Santiago's metropolitan area with some parts receiving up to 40 centimeters (16 inches) of the white stuff, according to the National Emergency Office.
Residents woke up Saturday to find their city covered with snow and by late Sunday thousands of homes still lacked electricity.
Andres Rebolledo of the energy ministry said power should be restored by Sunday night or Monday. A worker at a Santiago hospital died when he slipped and hit his head.
