For the last month Ive been trying to buy a good hoe and have had no luck.
I even tried Fyshwick without result. I bought a cheap hoe with three prongs from a hardware store, out of desperation, but it exploded into three on the third swing.
What I want is a heavy duty cast [...]
Samuel Shumack’s autobiography written in the late twenties and first published in 1967, gives us an account of rural living in the Canberra district before federation. It offers detailed accounts of his recollections and conversations with other locals. There are a lot of tales about crimes, how people died and where they are buried. [...]
These are from a block on Eucumbene Drive Duffy. I’ve seen men in white hazmat suits taking stuff away.
I like the couch in the sewage pipe hole that was 10ft deep.
It used to be a cool place to have a fire and a few beers at night with mates.
I don’t think my [...]
I thought I would check out last weeks story on Kambah pools. I failed to find mountains of rubbish left by teens and druggy’s, but I did find this example of bad parking. Fortunately it didn’t stop some one from neatly removing the rear quarter panel and stealing the stereo.
UPDATE: The cool morning has brought [...]

How much should I expect to pay?
Does a gun black market exist in the ACT. [...]
Lying abandoned in wastelands, next to the Molonglo river, behind Fyshwick, are some very interesting parts of Canberra’s history.
Maybe some of you could help fill in the blanks?
In the 1900s (?) before the Dairy Road bridge, to get over the Molonglo river you had to take a barge.
The barge is still there, [...]
I chanced on Woolshed Creek at the weekend. Its on the ACT Heritage Place register. These special rocks were formed 420 million years ago during the Silurian Period when this region was a warm shallow sea. Imbedded in the grey mud stone are the fossilised remains of sedentry marine animals, mainly Brachiopods. During the [...]
ABC online has a story “Off-duty police could face drug testing“. The Australian Federal Police Association has proposed that officers be drugs tested 24/7, 365 days of the year.
The Australian Federal Police Association has put forward a proposal that would see officers subjected to random drug tests while off duty, as well as while they [...]
How do you find justice in Canberra when you are not normal? I accept that the police are not in a position to protect all parts of our community from violence and sexual assault. So what can be done.
“Zoron from Belconen” is a violent thug that stands over drug users. He bashes [...]
