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...

As we approach the peak of hurricane season Tropical Storm Dorian set to be named hurricane by Tuesday as it sets course to hit the eastern Caribbean


As we approach the peak of hurricane season, which usually occurs in early September, a tropical storm warning has been issued for Barbados, St. Lucia, and St. Vincent and the Grenadines. That means tropical storm conditions (39-73 mph winds) are expected there within the next 36 hours, according to the Weather Channel.
Tropical Storm Dorian is strengthening as it moves westward toward the Windward Islands where it will bring heavy rain and strong winds early this week and could reach hurricane strength by Tuesday.
Dorian is currently centred more than 200 miles east-southeast of Barbados, moving steadily west at 10 to 15 mph.
In addition, tropical storm watches are now in effect for Martinique, Grenada and Dominica. Tropical storm conditions are possible in those areas within the next 48 hours.
Dorian will move through the eastern Caribbean Sea and turn more toward the northwest during the middle portion of this week.
It's intensity forecast later this week remains highly uncertain.
Sea surface temperatures are warm ahead of the system, and upper-level winds are expected to remain weak for up to 48 hours. These factors favour intensification.
However, the mid-level atmosphere is moderately dry, and that may keep a brake on any rapid strengthening. If the storm can develop an inner core of moisture and keep it walled off from the dry air, more sustained intensification would be possible.
The latest forecast from the National Hurricane Center (NHC) calls for Dorian to be a hurricane as it approaches Hispaniola and Puerto Rico later this week.
