Personally I find tires always seem to cost too much so I would like to post now that I have found somewhere that is both cheap and has great service. Northwest tyres.
I got all four tires changed on my porsche boxster for $550! This is after bob j and costco both quoted me around $1000. [...]

So I need to find someone to fit the TV antenna.
Does anyone know any reasonable priced and reliable services in Belconnen? Thanks a lot!

I have a decent pair of headphones (earbuds) that have served me well for the last couple of years. Sadly the right hand speaker has decided it has had enough and is no longer working.
Rather than fork out for a new pair, I was wondering if anyone could point me in the right direction of [...]

This black and white male cat was found in Gungahlin last week. He is microchipped and desexed, but unfortunately his microchip details are out of date so it has not been possible to locate his owners. He has a number of health issues so it is very important to find his family. Does anyone recognize [...]
So I found out recently, after traipsing around the usual suspects of BCF, Bunnings, and whichever servo I could remember, that I can no longer refill my gas bottle at these esteemed outlets.
Some research through PhD Professor Google suggests this is due to some safety inspections revealing poor refill practices by spotty faced 17 year [...]
Actors and fans of the gothic and macabre take note!
Centenary Edge has put out a casting call for its upcoming gothic take on Canberra called Blood & Mortar.
CULTURAL AGENCY CENTENARY EDGE IS SEEKING ACTORS FOR A ‘NEW GOTHIC’ FEATURE FILM TO BE SHOT IN THE NATIONAL CAPITAL IN MARCH – APRIL 2014.
I have a 10-year-old VW Polo that I bought new from an unnamed VW outlet in January 2014 (it had 300k on the clock).
Being a complete eejit, I have used the car dealership to service the car since.
Since February 2012, it has had an ongoing problem with voltage to the throttle. This problem causes the [...]
Fancy a chat with Andrew Leigh? He’s gonna be leading a discussion/workshop about social capital later this month in New Acton.
A CONVERSATION WITH DR ANDREW LEIGH MP
How connected are we in our communities?
And how has this changed over time in Australia?
Is Canberra the insular, disconnected place it’s made out to be? Or is there more [...]
Years ago in Civic, a grotty little building was home to Jobline, the odd job referral service that kept a lot of no-hopers like me in touch with the wide world of good honest work. It got cancelled by Kate Carnell in the early nineties, but I’m hoping there are people around who used to [...]
I have a very wet underfloor to the family castle. Despite a fan bringing in outside air for 6 hours a day, for the last year or two, the humidity is constantly high.
I have already applied a number of quite excessive drainage solutions, but have reached the point where I need a better brain.
Hi there. I just wanted to publicly commend the young female lifeguard who was on duty yesterday morning at CISAC.
Yesterday the pool was full of groups of young school kids attending swimming lessons. Whilst taking a breather after having swum a few laps, I looked up to see the young life guard spring into action. [...]
Does anybody else get annoyed with this in this day and age? You order food at a cafe, bill comes at $50+ then told EFTPOS is not accepted.
Surely these days having an EFTPOS terminal is essential to a business as people like myself seem to carry less cash. If Medicare has now gone cashless [...]
A sunny Sunday afternoon at my place was interrupted by a baby brown snake making it’s way into my front yard – casually seeking some warmth on our concrete driveway.

Is anyone able to shed any light on how the rules and regulations of front fences are interpreted and enforced (or not) in Canberra? In our street in Ainslie there are at least half a dozen house with fully enclosed yards, not to mention “property demarcations” that are more than double/triple the height specified by [...]
We have friends coming from interstate and need a hire car for family with a newborn.
Can anyone recommend a good hire company who use good quality car seats, and install them for you?
I’ve often found myself in in airport car parks trying to install crap car seats in hire cars.
So the Australian National Dictionary Centre (ANDC) are looking to crown Australia’s “word of the year” and would like suggestions to help them along the way. It’s not a vote as they will make the final call, but they’re looking for you to make the shortlist.
I discovered this fact because the ANU have written a [...]
Sourced from The Canberra Times, it is interesting to see that the lovely Taylor Schmidt suffers from “substance abuse disorder, depression and adolescent conduct disorder.”
Isn’t that just psychiatrist talk for “loves taking drugs, is sad about being caught for killing a dude, and behaves like a shit during his adolescence?”
Perhaps many Riotacters could be diagnosed [...]
The Centenary’s almost over, does anyone feel they got their $31.6 million dollars worth?
Has there been a ‘a lasting impact on the community’?
‘Ms Archer said she was conscious of using the $31.6 million centenary budget to put on events throughout the year that could have a lasting impact on the community.’ Canberra Times [...]
Debate abounds, is Halloween a gross piece of American commercialism with no place in Australian society?
Popular meme bouncing around on Facebook.
Or is it a bit of fun that in no way needs to be commercial or American and what’s your problem with American culture anyway?
What do you think?
I tend to feel hating Halloween for [...]
Come and learn some Christmas carols in four-part harmony with Canberra Harmony Chorus women’s choir!
Over the past few months I have been experiencing bouts of extreme fatigue and recently dizziness. I have had huge problems trying to get that diagnosed. On an APS2 wage I can’t afford to pay to see a doctor. I finally managed to get in to see a doctor at Winnunga who did a whole [...]
I rarely use Action Buses, however on occasion do particularly on weekends.
I find the Red Rapid between Gungahlin and Canberra a great way to get in and out of town.
However the service that runs on the weekend is such an ambiguous winding route that it took me best part of an hour (estimate) [...]

2012 Giant Anthem 29er, small frame, charcoal colour, dual suspension, hydraulic disc brakes.
Distinguishing feature is a remote lock-out rear shock with [...]
Most people that have lived in this town for a few years realise that the ACT justice system is s***. If it was a car you’d be ringing scrap metal yards hoping one of them will agree to come and take it off your hands.
So today I noticed that our new Chief Justice (Murrell) has [...]
