Hello, just throwing this out here if anyone knows the answer:
I’m on ACT L’s at the moment and about to take the driving test in a few months. The problem is that my automatic car’s speedometer is busted and too expensive to replace – have to get the part from overseas. The car used to [...]
Does anybody have any idea about tenancy rules/leases through defence housing?
My girlfriend’s new sister-in-law is married to an Army officer and will soon be moving into defence accommodation in Canberra.
My girlfriend would like to move in with her (free rent).
My girlfriend and her sister have not been able to find any [...]
A friend is very interested in a couple of flats (or units, or apartments as they’re called now), one in The Monarch, Turner, and the other in Realm, Barton.
Other than the grandiose names, does anyone know what these developments are like, building-quality wise? Noisy? Minimal meth-labs? Stuff breaking down?
Any scuttle-butt (or praise) would be useful [...]
Has anyone attended the free workshop or know anything about Bizcorp-Business Growth Solutions?
Seems too good to be true that you could cut your mortgage in 1/2 “magically” by paying no more than you currently pay on your mortgage.
Can anyone explain how it works? If legit or a scam?
I’m craving antipasto and I’m craving it now.
Our beautiful 3 year old daughter is ready for school however because she was born in June she wont be able to attend preschool until 2013. We’ve been looking into Playschools in the ACT for 2012 and have ended up on a waiting list for a few as they seem to be extremely popular.
I would [...]
I need to get my wedding rings repaired, looking for recommendations for a good reliable jeweller in Canberra.
Area is not important just keen to get someone who does a quality job for a reasonable price!
Hi again guys,
Can anyone suggest a doggy day care centre say near Belconnen?
Quick question, is it illegal in the ACT to put advertising flyers under windscreen wipers? I received one the other day and I though it wasn’t allowed anymore? I know it’s illegal in NSW under littering laws.
I have some friend visiting Canberra in a few weeks for a few days, who need accommodation for 2 adults, 3 kids and 1 dog.
I need some suggestions to give them please?
Thanks in advance.
I’ve had a few questionable taxi drivers of late, and require a hire car instead of a taxi to take me to the airport very early this Friday.
I’ve found a few phone numbers, but would like to know if anyone can give me some recommendations please?
Thanks in advance
I’m going to preface this post by stating that I currently am and always have been an ‘alternative medicines’ sceptic. I put acupuncture in the same ballpark as reiki and chicken wishbone wishing.
However, after another seasonal bout of horrendous hayfever I have reached the same point as those parents of kidnapped children that you sometimes [...]
Does anyone know has it sold yet or is coming up for sale?
I am interested to know who purchased it?
ie Is it going to be a childcare centre?
Can anyone recommend a place to get a facial with extraction in Canberra?
Somewhere with experienced staff is much preferred.
Does anyone have a recommendation for a personal trainer in the city, inner north or inner south?
I want to find someone who can teach me a program/skill set that will set me up for years rather than months.
I am not interested in group training or anything resembling boot camp.
I’m happy to pay for quality.
For the past few years I’ve been able to get some wine grapevines (not their table grape cousins!) at a decent price – even if the vines themselves weren’t the best quality cuttings – from Bunnings in Tuggeranong, but this year Bunnings do not appear to be stocking them (probably a blessing, really…).
Now that [...]
I’m moving overseas so I’m trying to find a way to sell some of my old university textbooks. I have a lot on IT, Economics and Marketing that are still relevant to this day.
So what are the best methods of selling them?
I’m not a member of either of the Universities here so I can’t [...]
Having experienced two renderers failing to supply promised quotes, I am seeking recommendations for a good renderer. Preferably one experienced in rendering to a variety of substrates, including blueboard. Heck, right now I’d settle for someone who makes an effort to return calls.
The job is small, perhaps 100 sqm. I appreciate that it might be too [...]
I am looking to have a procedure and was wondering if anyone can recommend a good canberra plastic surgeon?
A few weeks ago I was rear-ended on my drive home from work.
My car was declared a write-off and, among other injuries, I have bad whiplash and can barely move my head.
At the moment my number one focus is on getting better – I have seen my doctor and been referred to physio [...]
Our work needs to get 12 -15 BBQ chooks for Melbourne Cup next week.
We had a bad experience last year where we ordered them from Woolies dickson only to turn up to find they had been sold to someone else.
Left a bad and chicken-less taste in our mouths.
So, where can I [...]
I have just returned to Canberra after living and working at various other Australian cities. Every other city I have been in where I’ve had satellite / cable television has included the free-to-air channels as well (GO!, GEM, etc).
Having just hooked up my Foxtel in Canberra I notice (and have spoken to Foxtel to confirm) [...]
Now that its warming up I am looking to acquire some chilli plants to grow on my balcony. The problem is I can’t find any established plants or even seedlings. Help!!!
I am a mid twenties adult hoping to get into playing some more bridge(i have only a rudimentary knowledge – but it seems fun). I know there are a couple of clubs out there and was just wondering if anyone had any recommendations or comments about which one might be good (or bad) and [...]
Hi there – I was hoping to harness some collective RiotACT knowledge to identify what this horrible spiky plant is.
It’s currently about 3m tall and 2m wide and in the process of taking over the garden…
Does anyone know of any sacred energy sites or leylines in Canberra?
I believe the Aboriginal people call them “boorooah”??
Mrs Hoo Haa and myself are about to try our hands at setting up a veggie garden but we know very little about it.
Does anyone have any good tips or can anyone recommend any good resources/links/books to learn more about the subject (specific to our climate)?
I wondered if Rioters had noticed any diminution of their Optus mobile broadband signal (applies also to Virgin, Amaysim, Dodo, Exetel, various other resellers of the Optus network).
I have been with Virgin mobile BB for several weeks and after experimenting with a wok aerial and the direction it points have been getting speeds of around [...]
Until last night I assumed that if an alarm at a house was going off constantly a person could call the ACT Police and have someone come out and investigate. But apparently this is not so. The police do not attend unless you can tell them you’ve seen secondary evidence of a break in with [...]
I need some advice.
I went to the Woden Shopfront for my friend’s 17 year old daughter, who was transferring a licence from overseas. Having already been in there twice to get knocked back because she needed proof of residence, we put in the paperwork.
Then the fun started.
We had to wait at the counter.
I tried [...]
Every year around this time tiny black bugs with yellow spots on their backs take up residence in our bathrooms (but no other rooms in the house). They are about half the size of normal lady bird beetles. We will often suck them up with a vacuum cleaner in the evening, only to find a [...]
I have recently started shopping at the Calwell shopping centre, and at the beginning it seemed nice enough but after a few weeks I can’t help but notice a lot of the people who work there are so rude. And not just the normal amount of rudeness, and not just towards me, they seem to hate everyone. [...]
