Right royal learning curve for Meghan Markle

Right royal learning curve for Meghan Markle


The multi-million-dollar royal wedding is now, it seems, in turmoil. From the crushing humiliation of staged paparazzi photographs to the overarching uncertainty of her father's attendance, Meghan Markle has made a few false starts with the British public.

Just two days away from the keenly awaited nuptials of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, a royal wedding that would not have happened even a generation ago, and the event has been overshadowed by uncertainty over the attendance of the bride’s father, Thomas Markle.

And if we had concealed carry laws and people could own firearms and train with them and be educated on the laws behind firearms many of these issues wouldn’t be a problem

And if they got the guns from people it would end up with someone being hurt. Or killed

I hear a lot about indecent assault, but is there such a thing as a decent assault? Anyway I'm glad he's caught. Fancy doing that near her family.

That so unfair he was just trying to do his job

That is so horrible. That poor man sleeping on the street. Housing affordability and availability in Sydney is at disgustingly low levels. I feel horrible for the driver too. But what was he doing driving onto the footpath?

I'll just sleep in the middle of the highway then and when I get hit I'll blame everyone else.

Brenton jesus

Y he take Sydney eye hospital

Just because a guy is sleeping on a footpath does not mean he can lawfully be run over by someone "just doing their job" Police likely would not brought charges if it was a simple unavoidable accident. Looks like the driver was possibly reckless?

Sounds like he did it on purpose, he had no reason for driving on a footpath, very sad 😢 poor homeless guy didn’t have a chance!!

I am occasioning laughter on this one. That's what happens when the old three tier government systems gets privatised. Notice how the police part of it all still works ok. Less State Gov Replenish Federal & Local govs

Think this says more about the city's homelessness problems than a debate by people who weren't there at the time to say if it was reckless or not.

If every rich person in aus bought a block of units to house the homeless there wouldnt be any homeless and this poor man would still be alive, rest in peace you're in a much better place now

What a sad story for everyone involved

R.I.P Mathew

How about think of the victims and forget the political crap for the this story

I feel sorry for the driver here! It would have been hard to notice or see the homeless person! There are so many others that contributed to this accident in some small way! There are some saying that the homeless should have some housing, well there is! If you talk to some of these people they choose to live on the street as it’s safer than living in the shelters!

We all know the wait in he Emergency department can often be a long one.

Well today, the State Government will open a specialised Urgent Care clinic at Royal Perth Hospital to treat drug and alcohol affected patients.

Which it's hopes will ease pressure on the emergency department.


Comment on Facebook

As an aging hospital...I don’t know why the entire freo hospital isn’t turned into a drug, alcohol and mental health clinic??? Just parts of it are used now since Fiona Stanley opened.

Good job...about time. There also needs to be a geriatric hospital in Perth, the health service needs to look after the people who are keeping the country ticking over..without them we would all be screwed.

Long over due but why put people with mental health issues in with drug and alcohol effected people. Many people who have not got alcohol or drug induced mental illness. 😣 could be a disaster in some cases to put someone with depression or anxiety issues in this new emergency clinic.

'Order and Discipline are the very foundation stones of a healthy society'. I don't know who's words they are but I've believed them all my life. You want to put druggos and drunks in front of hard working, civil, caring and educated people? Then I hope you've got a bit of muscle on hand and each with a Taser on their belt and all completely immune from ridiculous PC restraints. How many people have been to Emergency in great discomfort or distress, only to have an out of control 'knuckle dragger' there to make their lives even more miserable? Lots.

Do the mums have milk and are they feeding the babies?

We are so happy Julian rescued this darling little orphaned baby kangaroo and gave him a second chance at life. @julian_p_a_s_c_h_e_n (IG)

Julian learned on our tour (see second pic), how to stop and check kangaroos who have been hit by vehicles to see if there is a baby kangaroo who has survived in mums pouch. Julian held baby for 350km and delivered him safely to a wonderful wildlife carer! Baby has been named George.

Often baby survives in mums pouch after being hit by a vehicle because she has very strong muscles in her pouch that keep baby safe.

Is it common in Australia for kangaroos to be hit by cars? In America we have raccoons and skunks, etc.

Oh well done you Julian 💕

So wonderful that Julian had been on one of your wonderful tours and learned how to rescue a baby whose mother had been killed. Well done, Julian! :-) Shows how important it is to check the pouches of any dead kangaroo you see. You never know what you might find inside like this gorgeous little fellow. <3 We've been busy getting the donkeys ready for our event today. Just have to pack everything into the car, load the donks into the trailer and then we're off! Hope you're having a lovely Sunday there. Love to you all xxx

Blessings to you , so sad to think they are killed,

For all those fans who love Bradley and have been asking where he he is! 😀 Bradley is getting really big and doesn’t want to go in his pouch anymore. But he still loves a little cuddle and his milk 🍼❤️ ...


Comment on Facebook

I just love all the videos and the pictures u share with us. Plus learning all the information u share about the Kangaroo's I've learned so much so thank u from Kansas

Why are there such long nipples on the bottles? Is it because their face/jaw is so elongated? I know...strange question! 😂

Oh no... anyone else see a big boy sook that is going to be a massive big boy at the sanctuary

Aaaaawwww! 😍😍😍Good to know though that little Bradley won't turn into a pouch potato.😁

Darling Bradley may be too grown up for his pouch now but he sure still loves his milk! <3 How long before he goes to live out in The Sanctuary with his mate, Max? I'm sitting here busily cleaning donkey bridles for Sunday's event. Just wish there weren't so many brass buckles to polish!! :-) Then it's baths for Nell and Cassie tomorrow. At least it's supposed to be hot and sunny so they won't mind. Have a great Saturday. Love to you all xxx

Do the babies stay close to their mothers when it is cold if they are too big for the pouch?

Thank you for sharing Bradley’s videos. Enjoy watching him as he grows

Aw so very adorable !! Aw ld love to do this ! I'm in Canada and we don't have Kangeroos here only at the zoo s

I may come down and visit you guys. I am truly inspired by your kindness to animals and kindness in general! Lots of love from the states!

WOW! I was in AS last year only to visit this Sanctuary but sadly wasn't Possible cause they explain that I should buy 2 days before.😞 But, I have plans to comeback to the desert and spend more time to meet Roger and your friends! So cute!

P.S. Looks like the chilly mornings have persuaded you to wear long trousers rather than shorts for walking round the Sanctuary!! Very wise! :-) Keep warm! ;-)

Ooo, I had the chance to hold them as an baby kangaroo, so big already, 😍😍

I don't think these two will ever give up their milk

Brrrrr, sounds like you're having cold nights now. It's warm here - and sunny! - during the day but we had quite a thick frost last night!! Keep your fingers crossed for us that the weather stays good here until Sunday as we have our first donkey event of the summer. It's at a beautiful stately home in Wales so should be a lovely day out if rather a long way to go! :-) How old are Milly and Tilly now and do they still go round together? They are so cute <3 Have a great weekend. Lots of love to all xxx

I never realized how much I needed to see daily posts of kangaroos until I started following your page. They are all so adorable and my son loves the videos. ❤️

Ah, the dynamic duo!!! How they have grown! Who doesn’t want a hot beverage on a cold morning?? 😍😍😍😍😍

Looks good from Ireland where it is a glorious warm 16 degrees.

I have loved watching them grow up. It’s lovely to see they are still best friends. 😁💗
