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...

Tropical cyclone Dumazile set to strengthen to the equivalent of a Category 3 hurricane as it pummels the eastern coast of Madagascar

Tropical cyclone Dumazile is on course to shave Madagascar and La Reunion with intense rain and heavy gusty winds during this week.
Staying off the eastern coast of Madagascar warm water is expected to feed Dumazile enable the cyclone to strengthen further and may become an intense tropical cyclone during the beginning of the week.
Wind gusts over 100 km/h (62 mph) will still be possible in any thunderstorms in the outer bands of the storm, including along the eastern shores of the island.
Sustained winds up to 185 km/h (115 mph) are possible across the waters between Madagascar and La Reunion.
This would be winds equivalent to a Category 3 hurricane in the Atlantic or the Eastern Pacific ocean basins.
"The environment east of Madagascar will be favourable for further strengthening through Monday," said AccuWeather Meteorologist Faith Eherts.
The centre of the storm is likely to stay over water, and off the eastern shore of Madagascar, meaning the highest wind gusts will be found there as well.
This will create dangerous seas and boating conditions in the surrounding area.
Regardless of further strengthening, flooding rainfall will be a major impact.
