Friendly Perth chooks

On Holiday in Tasmania, we decided to stop in Perth, Tassie. We come from Perth WA and wanted to get a selfie in front of the Perth sign.

While Parking we were met by these two inquisitive roosters. Had to take a photo as they were standing there very proudly. Probably posing for a feed.

The royal visit to Sunderland, 1918, King George V in conversation with a young boy.

Great photo.

:) Video: King And Queen At Sunderland 1918.

Once hailed as the "Largest Shipbuilding Town in the World", ships were built in Sunderland on mouth of the the River Wear from at least 1346 onwards and by the mid-18th century Sunderland was one of the chief shipbuilding towns in the country. The Port of Sunderland was significantly expanded in the 1850s. Between 1939 and 1945 the Wear yards launched 245 merchant ships totalling 1.5 million tons, a quarter of the merchant tonnage produced in the UK at this period.

Mass death of feral horses discovered in scorching, dry Central Australian waterhole  

A mass feral horse death at the base of a dry waterhole in Central Australia has been blamed on an extreme heatwave in the region.

Had no idea that the continued heatwave in the area could result in this tragic scene.

Awful. This heatwave combined with the drought has been devastating.

Hope everyone in SA and VIC stay safe today and tomorrow.

Local country bakery removes eftpos and goes cash only.  Places private ATM in the corner, every transaction incurs a $2.50 fee

 

Those private ATMs are very expensive.

Can't imagine the change would be good for that bakery business.
