We adults, in this part of the US, do all wear bike helmets and ski helmets. I have noticed that's not the case in other parts of the country.
I do have two friends who owe their lives/skulls, to their helmets

That makes you more sensible than here, where at best half of all adults riding bikes use helmets. - Or lights, or reflexes, or use the inside of their heads.
As for sunscreen. Adults and adults with children here are very much aware of the sun, but teens.... They believe they are immortal and can't get cancer.

Here is tonights segment about Mary on TV2 news at 19.00 Kronprinsesse Mary i miljrigtig skole - TV 2 Nyhederne
About a school where a new fuel-economic building has been opened and where the children have been taught about saving electricity. This building means that the energy consumption has been reduced by 90 %. All very good, but as the reporter points out, going through a newly build neighborhood, all the houses are hopelessly inefficient in regards to saving energy, at least according to Danish standards.
Garbage disposal: inefficient and so on.
An Australian emits twice as much CO2 as a Dane on average.
The journalist by the way is a news reporter, not a morning show dilletante.

Seriously, we have learned a lot from you Aussies but this is an area where we really can teach you something!
Example: We had our thermoglass windows from the 80's replaced a few years back. We saved almost 5.000 DKK (1.000 $) on the heating bill the first year alone. We expect to have our roof replaced next year and then we are talking serious savings on the heating bill! - Makes the house worth more and easier to sell too.
All our lightbulbs have long since been replaced by energy-saving bulbs and that has saved us a lot on the electricity bill, not least with two children around!

@ Post 183.

Another fabulous read and a few good laughs!

In this clip they are subjected to a Preussian fittness-gull/drill-gull named Helmuth who among other things call them closet-budgies.
Quite hilarious!

It's on Jess' Flicker account, on post 173. I'm not sure how to access the photos as she has some restrictions on them, sorry I don't know how to post them.

Wonderful Jess. Glad you got to see M & F and the photos were great.

I have been absent as both my husband and I have had a virus. Thank you Muhler for your contributions.

Madame Royale, did you enjoy the Docklands evening?

The Sun Safe message is so important. The younger generations here have grown up knowing nothing else but hats and safe times of day to play outside. However, the older generations continue to suffer the effects of sun exposure from their childhoods and teen years.

1 more day to go. What a wonderful tour it has been.

It seems to be a wonderful weather in Australia, I am not jealous at all

But thanks for the link - Mary really shines. A little sad that the visit already ends tomorrow.

I did thank you Lady Rosie. Thoughtful of you to ask.

I was at a venue called Sumac for a private event.

From Australia's Channel 9 News, a clip of Day 3 events and some old footage from Starmakers. Sort of a hodgepodge, but interesting.

Old footage of "Crown Princess" Mary at Starmakers - YouTube
Only Channel Nine would find it necessary to dig up the old Starmakers footage to "further exhibit Mary's natural grace"

An interesting gold necklace with what looks like diamonds on the circles and a matching bracelet.

Mary looks lovely in the red dress but useless to have worn a necklace IMO.

She has been looking really good on this trip even though it has been busy and flying to different cities. She still seems to not look jet lack or worn out from it all. It must be nice to be home and knowing your going to spend time with family and friends.
