I’m associated with a Canberra Sporting team that imports a number of overseas players for each winter season.
While some of their expenses(flights, accommodation and shared vehicle access) are covered they still need day to day spending money.
A complicating factor is that they rarely have a weekend free and train three nights a week.
Anyone out there [...]
I’ve been meaning to ask for ages… Does anyone know if there’s anywhere in Civic that sells guitar strings? The second hand CD store in the interchange used to but don’t anymore…
Would be so handy if there was rather than having to go out to Phillip or Mitchell every time.

The bike shop left months ago.
Soon the place will dug up and (presumably) the ground detoxed to make way for some more units … can’t be too many of these suburban servos left.

Let’s get with the program people. It’s 2012 and we’re not all white anglo saxon protestants around here trooping of to church every Sunday and observing the Sabbath.
Why should the Christians get all the holidays while Diwali, Hanukkah, Lunar new year, the Eid ul fitr, Nowruz, or Kwaanza are not?
To say nothing of the massive [...]

Has any family been caught out in the even pay gas bill issue where actewagl did not review the even pay arrangement causing hefty rises in the ongoing payments?
So last Friday during school hours I was walking to my car via the Gazebo down behind La Porchetta next to the Tuggeranong Hyperdome and noticed some teenagers in hoodies and ‘homie’ gear sitting around the Gazebo yelling some sort of abuse at a couple as they walked past. Well it was my turn as [...]

Is Canberra’s residential electricity subsidised?
Anyone know of good energy price deals for nearby NSW locales?
We are just [...]

Just saw a new channel on my Digital TV called 84.
Rang WIN but they didn’t know either. Does anyone know what sort of shows/content it will have.
I heard it could be like Channel 64 with all its silly infomercials and psychic scams, sorry, programmes.
Our Book Keeper rather un ceremoniously left us today with under 48 hours notice, while he did an amazing job during his time with us giving notice was obviously not a strong point!
Can anyone recommend a good Book Keeper in the City / Inner North area who is a wizard on MYOB and can [...]
Hello fellow rioters.
This query is for those investors/landlords who lease out their properties through a property management agency. What are the common rates and charges going around at the moment.
