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...

Remnants of Tropical Cyclone Fehi batter New Zealand with 160 kmh winds turning wheelie bins into "missiles" with King tides causing flooding

What remained of Tropical Cyclone Fehi moved over New Zealand Thursday causing flooding and wind damage across the country.
Winds of 100mph, 160 kmh hammered New Zealand's North and South Islands last night.
The winds caused severe damage to buildings, toppling trees, cancelling flights, turning wheelie bins into "missiles" and whipping up waves that have flooded highways and eaten away sea walls. Metservice was forecasting gales across the region on Thursday as much of the country is hit by the remnants of Tropical Cyclone Fehi. A wind gust of 142kmh was recorded at Mt Kaukau in Wellington about midday. A 135kmh gust was also recorded in the suburb of Kelburn about 1 pm. Multiple flights have been cancelled or delayed arriving and departing Wellington Airport where winds of 116kmh have been recorded.
King tides have hindered the situation causing widespread flooding around the battered country.
Families had just minutes to gather their belongings before wading through knee-deep water as they were evacuated from their homes.
