My 12 year old would like a “just for fun” dance class that she could join.
Most of the dance places around the way seem to require uniforms or commitment to end of year performances or are for kids that attend term in and out.
Are there any classes that are suitable for a [...]
I would like to buy a good pavlova. However, every shop I contact has either closed down or doesn’t sell them. Suggestions please but not if you last went there a year ago as it has probably gone.
No I can’t cook it:
(a) I would probably burn it and
(b) competition for the stove.
Here’s one for Canberrans with longish memories.
Back in the 1980s and afterwards, there was a useful little service called Jobline. If you were unemployed or at university (but I repeat myself!) you could dial their number — I remember it, it was 477777 — and sign up to do odd jobs. Someone wants their windows [...]
I know this has been discussed before but the most recent post I can find is a couple of years old.
Does anyone have any recommendations for a Canberra based removalist to move our things to Northern NSW?
In particular I have had a reasonable quote from National Capital Removals at Mitchell – has anyone [...]
I converted my existing garage to living space 5 years ago, and am finally getting around to putting up a new garage. I want something affordable which can be made to look in keeping with the style of my house. After much research, I think the way to go for me is a steel carport kit, enclosed with blueboard and [...]
I realise this has been touched on in the past, however I didn’t find a lot of the answers I was looking for, so here we are again.
For reasons inconsequential, Mrs Bendross and I will be leaving our house and sticking it on the rental market. For more reasons inconsequential, we will be going [...]
I just got my rates, and the unimproved value of the land has not budged a dollar in twelve months. (It shows me the ULV from January to January)
We bought it in August 2010. That year the ULV went up $60,000!
So my question is, who got the benefit of that increase? Me or the [...]
My cousin recently started on probation with a hairdressing chain in Canberra, with a view of obtaining a 1st year apprenticeship after 3 months.
My wife went to her hairdresser who told her that the chain had a reputation of hiring probationers for 3 months then not offering an apprenticeship.
The probationers clean the shop [...]
We recently got 4 quotes from various Canberra companies (varying from stegbar to husband/wife combo) and the cheapest quote came in at $2400 installed. This is for a 3m 3 door (mirror sliding) with nothing fancy inside just hanging/4 drawers and some shelves.
In Sydney the same wardrobe can be installed for $800 – $1150. Why [...]
Its a silly question I know but Im stumped. I have a little man who wants to go out for a hotdog for his birthday. I cant think of where to take him. Other than a bowling alley or an ice cream/frozen yogurt shop (I know, weird huh!) I cant think of anywhere that serves [...]
Comedy ACT and Impro ACT are going head to head in The Great Debate, all they need now is a debate topic.
Captain for the improvisers: Nick Byrne, Artistic Director of Impro ACT and Improvention, Australia’s largest gaggle of improvisers and Australia’s second tallest improviser.
Captain for the comedians: Kale Bogdanovs, a Melbourne Comedy Festival veteran who’s [...]
Greyhound are offering wi-fi and a business class service on buses to and from Sydney
Can anyone confirm that the paved section of road just after the corner of Palmer Street and Bateson Road in Garran is not a pedestrian crossing? This is just after the turn into the Canberra Hospital up near the Red Cross Centre.
There is no indication whatsoever that this is a crossing but it seems that [...]
Has anyone got any recommendations for a legal firm on the Northside that can assist me in drawing up a will? Before you all say “Will Kits”, it’s slightly more complex in this instance and I do need to engage a lawyer. The only law firm I’ve used is for conveyancing and that wasn’t [...]
I am looking to transport some goods to the Toowoomba/Brisbane area and am wondering if anyone knows a company who does regular trips and might have some room to carry a small load?
There is not enough stuff to consider a full removalist and nothing is urgently required up there.
Any advice or suggestions would be [...]
I’ve heard rumours that the ACT suburb currently known as “West Macgregor” will be getting a new name. Is this true or not? And if so, what will the new name be? I could have sworn that I read online somewhere (or heard from a friend) that it was going to be [...]
Due to changing family requirements I need to extend the family home, the only direction that I can go is in the path of a protected tree.
Moving isn’t really an option as I couldn’t afford to purchase back into the suburb and I am not about to move the kids away from their school [...]
My wife and experience the daily nerve racking experience of Canberra commuting. It seems every second day at least we see another accident. Seven deaths in Canberra roads this year, and I dread to think of how many serious injuries or even insurance nightmares and work interruptions people are suffering every day. Fatalities are only the tip [...]
Did anyone else see the plane flying crazy low over Torrens?
As a fair and balanced, neutral political observer, with no allegiance to any political party, or political philosophy, I have been weighing up who will be getting my vote in the 2012 Assembly election.
I have gone into this with an open mind, taking into account the policy announcements and party platforms and have decided that [...]
I wonder if anyone is able to impart some wisdom on how to deal with a local sporting association which is being, shall we say, just a tad difficult?
In order to protect the innocent (I’ve always wanted to say that!) I will deliberately avoid divulging which sport/association is involved.
My children play a sport, for the [...]
There are signs popping up along Adelaide Ave warning “roads will be closed in this area” on Sunday, 9th Sept.
Of course, the details are locked in a filing cabinet in the basement, they are not obvious on TAMS’s website, or NCA’s.
Anyone know anything useful, like which roads and when? Thanks.
UPDATE 05/09/12 09:13: This [...]
I am considering entering to share housing. I am concerned because I have sport 3 nights a week and I sweat like nothing else. After training there are no showers so I have to come home smelly. I jump straight into the shower because I cannot stand my own smell.
In a share house situation you’re [...]
Hi, I know this is a long shot but just over 12 months ago I lost my memory card from my trip overseas and I am desperately trying everything to find it. It is a 16gb card with about 2500 photos on it. The case is a small brown case with orange lining and a [...]
I’ve had a search at previous posts and they are a few years old so thought I would post for updated information.
I’m looking for a financial planner to help sort out a budget and give me advice for investments/property. Preferably someone who doesn’t charge through the teeth and gives advice that is easy to [...]
I’m needing to move some large goods from Sydney to Canberra – a bunk bed and a cubby house. They’re second hand and I need to pick them up from people’s houses.
Can anyone advise of a cost effective way of doing this? I thought about hiring a ute. Can you recommend somewhere that doesn’t [...]
We’ve got an ex-gym cross trainer that needs to have the belt replaced but can’t work out to do it ourselves.
We’ve purchased the part but still need someone who knows what they are doing to attach it and see if it all works.
Any ideas on who does this kind of servicing?
My husband is a moley moley moley man and wants to have a thorough check up to scan for any irregularities.
Have any Rioters got any experience with where is the best place to start in Canberra?
Is there a skin cancer clinic you can go to without a referral or do you start at [...]
What is the best free alternative website to Allclassifieds.com.au for selling stuff online in the ACT?
I just have a few meager possessions that I’d like to get rid of before I move house.
Any help appreciated, thanks in advance.
Is it just me or is anyone else horrified by the Altitude Apartments being constructed between Chandler Street and Emu Bank in Belconnen? This monstrosity is an eye sore to say the least and it may not have reached it’s final height as yet. There are a number of large buildings in the area such [...]
I have recently been diagnosed with TMJ and I’ve been told that a chiropractor might be able to help.
Does anyone have a good (or bad) experience to report, and has anyone had success in treating TMJ with chiropractic?
so there’s a house thats recently come up for sale in red hill. totally out of my price range and probably a little too high class for my tastes anyway.
but I really like the artwork in the house! I’ve emailed the agent and the vendor is not interested in divulging the artists name (wtf? [...]
