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...

Record temperatures shattered in San Francisco Friday as temperatures reach 45 deg C 115 deg C

Record temperatures were shattered in San Francisco Friday and that caused a lot of issues on public transit for commuters.
The heat wreaked havoc on the evening commute for many BART and Muni riders.
Muni says the oldest vehicles in its fleet had the toughest time and Saturday's heat could cause another day of delays.
Commuters heading home for the holiday weekend faced long delays.
"There's always delays when it's hot, and even not when it's hot," said one commuter.
Those arriving from the East Bay shared stories of suffering.
When asked how hot it was on one of the BART trains, a rider replied, "I don't have a thermometer, but probably 120 degrees."
"The ride here was miserable," said Dublin resident Lisa Domino.
"The air was barely on -- sweating.
It was really just miserable."
Both BART trains and Muni buses struggled to operate in the record-setting heat.
"Some of our older electric vehicles are overheating where the bus connects to the overhead wires," said SFMTA spokesperson Paul Rose.
"What we're doing is stopping those vehicles, letting them rest for a little bit and then carrying on with service."
Around the city people also struggled to stay cool.
Some suggested drinks in a cool bar and others were surprised about normally busy parks being deserted.
"I was surprised, shocked because there was nobody here.
But I understand because they can't play," said a park visitor. Folks at Dolores Park enjoyed the evening breeze dreaming of cooler days ahead.
