Katy Gallagher is undoubtedly one of the most popular leaders in Canberra’s history. Her electoral vote is astronomical, and she is respected for her stoic mind and steady hand. Indeed Katy could blow up a hospital and go on shooting spree of endangered animals with Bob Katter and still enjoy enormous public support.
Understandably, Lundy’s decision [...]
Last week when I asked for recommendations for family friendly restaurants and cafes, I honestly expected to be inundated however, it seems that Canberra has a serious lack of family friendly eating establishments.
Places like Jamie’s Italian, and a few of the football clubs were recommended, along with Ricardo’s in Jamison and Tommy & Me in [...]
The words “eclectic electric” are printed on the back of the chopsticks at Canberra’s latest culinary sensation, Akiba, and it’s an apt description for the restaurant itself.
Owned by Peter and Michael Harrington and partner Dino Jugovac, this is a quirky and innovative restaurant that pulls out all the stops.
Situated at the former Dieci e Mezzo [...]
How will the reign of Katy Gallagher as Chief Minister of the ACT be viewed by History? What will be her Legacy?
Granted, what one person sees as a positive, another may see as a negative depending on how it affects them and whether they can see (or they care about) all the benefits, negatives [...]
Where is a good place to have a 21st?
Ideas more towards the Southside would be great!!
This weekend I decided to try out The Cupping Room for breakfast; a project by Ona coffee. So off I went to Civic. I had to wait about 10-15 minutes for a table (apparently it happens), but honestly, it’s worth the wait.
I’ve previously raved about their amazing salted caramel popcorn milkshakes, but as I discovered, The [...]
It is a privilege to drive on public roads, not a right.
Public roads are for safe, cheap transport of people and goods, not racing.
People of widely varying abilities who exceed minimum standards are permitted to use public roads and you are required to share the road with them, showing them every courtesy.
Leave a 3 [...]
Really disappointed that Nicholls still does not have NBN in the making, does anyone know when this will happen?
I know there are previous articles on this topic but does anyone have any suggestions in dog training. I have done some basic obedience classes though looking for some more training. I have a Kelpie so very energetic and would prefer someone who has experience working with the breed. Any suggestions?
I come from the old school way of thinking which is, if it isn’t your work and thoughts then don’t try and pass them off as if they were. I also think if you are the principal of a high school then you should set the example and not plagiarise to your students.
My daughter came [...]
Welcome to the silly season. And they don’t call it silly for nothing. It’s that time of year where all of our emotions seem to overflow and we dangle dance between the line of aggression and elation at the thought of the end of the year finally approaching and heading off on summer holidays.
But before [...]
Now that cherry season is here can anyone let me know if there are people selling them on the roadside?
So in January I will be driving to Batemans Bay for the first time from Canberra. I am on my red P’s that I have only had for 2 days. I just wanna get some tips and tricks from anyone who has driven up and down the clyde before. Thanks in advance.
A friend of mine was complaining about the lack of family friendly restaurants and cafes in Canberra. I was really interested because not having kids myself, it has not been something that I’ve had to think about when eating out.
So this week I’m asking for nominations on Canberra’s best family friendly restaurant/café. Feel free to [...]
Last week I was lucky enough to indulge in two great big stacks of fluffy pancakes. I wasn’t able to find that salted caramel, banana and walnut stack that I was drooling over when I called for nominations last Monday, but I did find something close.
My first stop was Pancake Parlour at 7am on a [...]
I am a longtime Experienced Dog Groomer/Exhibitor/Breeder.
I am from Young NSW just outside of Canberra. I am looking at coming over for 2 days a week Thursdays and Fridays to pick up some work in a Salon in Canberra. I can do any style clip, Poodles and Gundogs a specialty. I can hand strip [...]
We have had several rioters contact us asking about some commotion in Lyons early this morning.
Apparently at about 5am there were 50ish males being followed / escorted by roughly 15 police vehicles down Melrose drive, Lyons.
Does anyone know what was going on?
Thanks to Davo, Kiley and Big Johno for contacting us about this.
We’re thinking of buying a unit in the new Greenway development Southquay SQ1 across from Bunnings (Tuggeranong). The developer has a number of large unit block projects in progress, but where interested in looking at any of their completed projects. Can anyone provide information about any of their ‘completed’ projects/developments?Thanks.

In June 2014, this years ACT budget was projected to be m$333 in the red without the impact of Mr Fluffy – which could be as high as m$500 over 3 years, according to the ACT Treasurer, Andrew Barr :
On top of the cutbacks in the Federal Public service and associated downturn in other economic [...]
On Paul Murray Live Sunday night we were discussing the imminent departure of Jacqui Lambie from the Palmer United Party.
Janine Perrett was hosting, because the eponymous host was on a study tour in Abu Dhabi where he was examining local hotel architecture and the F 1.
Janine said – voicing the complaint of many – that [...]
Are we, as a society, officially doomed when we need a sign to tell us what needs to happen if the traffic arrows are red?
The image was taken turning right onto Gungahlin Drive from Gundaroo Drive.
I’m trying to think of any circumstance that would require the signage in the image. Maybe someone went through the red arrow [...]
I am drooling over the thought of a big stack of fluffy pancakes, smothered in salted caramel syrup, sprinkled with walnuts and topped with fresh banana.
Normally when I east breakfast, I am a bacon and egg kind of gal … savory over sweets. But this week I want to indulge. I’m going to treat myself [...]
The last post I could find about this was from back in 2009, so hoping someone may have some more recent recommendations.
I’m planning to renovate our bathroom and ensuite, and we’ve had confirmed that the wall material is bonded asbestos sheeting. I want to basically gut the bathrooms, replace the wall material, and start from [...]
