Hubby & I are hoping the hive mind can give us some information regarding a good, reliable electrician or even who to avoid.
We have a couple of ceiling fans we want installed and we would also like to have a couple of extra power points and track lighting installed.
We live in the Gungahlin area.
I just want to put it out there that I am truly ticked off with Big W and Woolworth’s supermarkets and their ‘self serve’. (I am sure there are many other businesses that can be named as well.) I am ticked that I am being asked to use the self serve and that the stores [...]
I went out to Federation Square at Gold Creek this afternoon. I’m wondering who is supposed to look after and maintain the area. Is it TAMS? Is it privately owned?
It’s a lovely area with some nice places to eat and some lovely shops which are moderately to highly over priced.
However, walking around I [...]
Hi Rioters, I want to consult the hive.
I need to plan a 21st birthday party. Due to my disability, this needs to be a catered party.
Not a sit down dinner but more like nibblies and alcohol served.
I need somewhere on the north side and reasonably priced.
Does anyone have any recommendations for [...]
My son today ended up with a piece of wood impaled in the ball of his foot. I was unable to remove the wood myself. This necessitated a visit to the medical practice to see if the clinic nurse could remove the wood. I thought it was better to go to my local medical practice [...]
Can anyone advise on defensive driving driving courses for P platers?
There are a few available in Canberra but I would love to hear other rioters opinions on the good, the bad and the ugly.
Who to go to?
Well, once again, here we are talking about the traffic congestion on Gundaroo Drive which runs past the suburb of Crace.
Not only are regular commuters sick of being stuck in the obscene traffic jams in the morning which stretch from Barton Highway round about back to Palmerston, they now have obnoxious pricks people using Crace [...]
I live in the neighbourhood of Amaroo School. I often hear the alarm ringing. It’s not an actual ringing sound but a very high pitched, piercing wail.
I have called the school to ask them who their security system is with and have been told that it is with ADT Security. Many times that the [...]
Not long now until 26 January. Australia Day. Can any of my fellow rioters tell me where in Canberra I could possibly buy a hat, T-shirt or any other items with the Australian flag on them that are actually made in Australia?
Everything I’ve seen so far has “made in China” stamped on it.
What on earth is going on with WIN Television?
I have lived in many different places around Australia but I have never known a television station to go off the air on such a regular but random basis! It’s only for 20 seconds or so at a time but it happens at least 5 times a [...]
