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? [...]
I noticed a couple of weeks back that out the back of the Uni Pub, where they’re planning to put the beer garden, official ‘Stop Work’ notices have been slapped up, and (obviously!) work has stopped.
It looks like the notice covers the entire project, inside and out, and look to be Government issued notices, [...]
Are there any plans to upgrade the Cotter Road now they are building all the new houses out that way? The traffic stretches all the way back to Adelaide Ave in the afternoon and I am guessing it will only get worse.
I have friends coming over from England for their honeymoon.
They will be in Canberra for 3 nights and travelling in a hired camper van.
Does anyone know any camp sites besides cotter and stuff. More closer to suburbia?
Someone just told me a quick story about some prostitute named Limestone Lizzie… Sounds like a bit of a story, anyone got any stories to tell? Did she actually exist?
I am looking for ideas for function venues for a birthday party later on in the year.
I estimate there will be around 60 people, and would prefer somewhere within 10 minutes of the city (ie. Dickson, Kingston, Manuka, Ainslie etc) and don’t want to break the bank either!
Also, somewhere that has limited steps due to [...]
Hi all, this is the increasingly expanding Bill.
I never thought I’d be the type. The type that gets up at 5.30am to go to the gym. Or who gives up time at the pub after work to go to the gym. But alas, after too many beers after work, my doctor has finally convinced me [...]
My husband and I are hoping to sell in the next few months and are currently looking at our options. We have met with an agent who was very nice but had a commission of almost 3%. We find it hard to imagine that the work of selling our house is worth over $12,000! [...]
Should small business be compensated for poor planning by ACT Planning & Development?
I am looking for a professional(s) to do wedding hair and makeup for a Saturday in February next year. Has anyone got any recommendations/are you a hair/makeup professional? I am only interested in people who are available to do this in my home.
It would be for Bride and 5 Bridesmaids – approximately 6 hours work for two people (ie one [...]
In preparation for the three or four days of balmy summer ahead, it is time to coax the swimming pool out of hibernation. I no longer have the time to do a thorough clean, check filter components, balance water etc. Actually, if I am honest with myself, I probably do have the time, [...]
Has anyone had any personal experience with tattoo policies in the APS?
I currently work in a government department but am planning to move on.
My current employer has no concern with visible tattoos but I’m a little concerned that I may have to conceal them in another department.
There is an existing thread on this topic but it’s a bit old…
I’m looking for recommendations for a landscaper that is reliable, good and won’t cost the earth. Your comments will be gratefully received.
With thanks, Kitten Licks
I am wondering if anyone can recommend a good sports psychologist in Canberra.
I live in Watson so anywhere inner north would be great but I’m happy to go just about anywhere in Canberra.
Money isn’t a massive problem but I don’t want to pay unless I see results.
Riotact Hivemind, I’m getting with the times and going to install solar panels to help reduce my electricity bills.
Problem is – Solargain is currently the only provider I can find that installs in Canberra. There are plenty of companies that come up with a google search, but none of them service the Canberra region. [...]
I’m turning to the Riot Act for some helpful information! I need info on electric bike conversion. I want to get to work without my car, and I have tried Action and just can’t make it work. So I thought of looking into electric bikes. I have an ordinary bike that I ride very occasionally, [...]
I’m thinking of buying land in Googong (falls under NSW jurisdictions) so I’m looking for a good solicitor/s for property conveyancing.
This will be my first property, and I would really appreciate any recommendations. I have received a couple of quotes (above $1000), however seeing as this is all new to me, would greatly appreciate [...]
My baby boomer partner needs a new lower denture.
He’s sick of dribbling his ham and pea soup down his trackie daks
Quote from a dental lab, admittedly a very good one, $12,000.
Could buy an old ute for that!
We recently landscaped our yard and had turf laid on our front verge/nature strip as part of the project.
The work was all planned with a letter box built into a wall on the front boundary and paving coming off the driveway for the sole purpose of giving Australia Post easy access.
Unfortunately, the Postie [...]
Does anyone know what’s happening with the BP servo in Phillip?
At first I thought it was just going through a re-branding or something minor, but it now looks like it’s being completely demolished.
Surely not making room for another car yard?
What would you like to see there besides a car yard?

My Mum is very unwell and is unable to leave her home. She is about to undergo chemotherapy and is worried about how her hair is going to look as it starts to fall out.

I have been trying, without success, to get my 6-year-old daughter in with an ophthalmologist in Canberra (aside from the Canberra Eye Hospital, where I don’t want to go, as they have such a bad reputation for non-surgical cases).
Several recommended Drs are either not taking new patients, or have recently retired, apparently leaving me with [...]
So I’ve put up with my fair share from the neighbour’s children and I’m considering installing security cameras at home. I’m sure my problems aren’t much compared to stories others can tell – but over the years we’ve put up with regular midweek parties (parents never at home), litter and smashed glass in the front [...]
Sadly my air con unit seems to have passed on as it keeps tripping the circuit breaker.
Does anyone in Canberra know either a) a good repair person for Hitachi Air Con or b) a good sales/install person/retail outlet to replace the said unit with something nice and warm for this weather?
Thanks in advance. :)
Am seeking recommendations for a fishing charter provider on the coast – Bateman’s Bay area.
I intend to purchase a trip as a father’s day gift for a 40-something, and was wondering if anyone had been on one of these charters recently and could recommend one.
wondering once you’ve purchased a property, how is the best way to get the details about your house (photos, purchase price, floorplans etc.) removed from websites? (allhomes.com.au, real estate agent & property price websites).
If I email the agent & allhomes is this the best way? Is there any legislation about this that I [...]
I am wanting to play tennis and only seem to be able to find competitions that are super-serious. Given that I’m a beginner and am going to kind of suck, is there anywhere I can play that caters to beginners? I can travel to anywhere in Canberra to play.
Thanks in advance, hive mind!
Can anybody recommend a financial/tax advisor to advise on salary packaging? My employer has PBI status so they’ve sent me a letter of offer with various options, but i need to get professional advice on pros and cons.
Would prefer to give the business to a small independent if possible, then they can do my tax [...]
I need some advice for accessing local services. I am after a hairdresser that has a realistic price structure (hairdresser at Ainslie wants $75 for a trim – bahahaha) and I am also looking at options to get my daughter started off in guitar lessons.
Location for both services is Inner city/north preferred.
Does anyone know of any Kombi Van’s that are for hire (privately owned or through a hire car company) in Canberra or surroundings for a wedding in November 2013?
