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...

It's a super typhoon and is the strongest tropical cyclone on the planet this year as tropical Noru takes aim for southern Japan

On Aug. 3 the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer or MODIS instrument aboard NASA's Terra satellite captured a visible-light image of Noru tracking through the Northwestern Pacific Ocean.
The image showed the eye had become filled with high clouds. Microwave data clearly showed the eye was present, so forecasters understood the clouds were high clouds and the entire eye had not filled in throughout.

Typhoon Noru will approach southern Japan this weekend before turning northward and threatening South Korea early next week.
While the exact track remains unclear, impacts to southern Japan, the northern Ryukyu Islands and South Korea appear likely, according to Accu weather.
Noru has already been on a long journey across the West Pacific.
Noru formed on July 20, then reached super typhoon status and became the strongest tropical cyclone on the planet so far this year on July 30.
Despite weakening from its peak strength, residents and visitors to southern Japan and South Korea should be on high alert for impacts from Noru as early as Friday night.
