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...

Super Typhoon Wutip the strongest February storm seen in the western Pacific Ocean in 70 years

Typhoon Wutip, the strongest February storm seen in the western Pacific Ocean in 70 years, passed south of Guam and may brush the northern Philippines later this week. This visible imagery, captured by Japan's Himawari-8 geostationary satellite on Feb. 25, 2019 (12:35 a.m. ET), shows Wutip's distinct eye as it churned through the Pacific.
On Feb. 23, Wutip became a rare February super typhoon – just shy of Category 5 strength – with sustained winds of 155 mph. According to NOAA's Historical Hurricane Tracks database, only three other February storms in the Northwest Pacific basin have reached at least Category 4 intensity since records began in the 1940s.
Wutip passed less than 200 miles south of Guam on Feb. 23, battering the U.S. territory with tropical-storm-force winds and heavy rain. An update from the Joint Typhoon Warning Center issued Monday morning (Feb. 25) showed Wutip's sustained winds were still near 149 mph as the storm moves west-northwest toward the Philippine Sea.
