Here is my community service notice for those who haven't learnt where the brakes are in your car.

A good old Pork Knuckle?

By 31 March 2010 19

Hello Rioters, Ever since returning from a trip to Germany I've had a hankering for a chunk of pig.  Much to my dismay, I have found that Canberra doesn't seem to readily offer pig knuckle.  I even made two special trips to the Zierholz in Fyshwick because I thought that they would surely ...

Where is the ambulance membership?

By 31 March 2010 11

We've been hearing of late about troubles and under-funding within the ambulance service.  As far as I am concerned this is one public service that should be well funded and full of people who are happy with there employment conditions. When I started work in the smart state (go on fire away) on...

Immigration Bridge proposal fails

By 30 March 2010 23

Finally the folk behind this have come to their senses and will now be pushing instead for a monument within the Parliamentary Triangle. I wonder if the next proposal will be as ambitious as this was. While immigration is certainly something to be celebrated, I'm not sure that a static monument i...

Canberra Everytrail virtual guide for iphone

By 30 March 2010 2

Thought I might mention  Everytrail to those Canberra iphone/GPS users who weren't aware of it.  Bikers wanting to explore new single track/trails but lacking someone to guide them should get a decent iphone bike mount like the ibikeconsole and discover the GPS community greatness of Everytrail. ...

North Weston is actually South-west?!

By 30 March 2010 21

Is it just me or do others think the naming of the new Molonglo suburb sounds a bit dumb? I was thinking it was just a temporary name until they pulled the proper name out of a hat, or whatever they do. But this seems to be it. Maybe we should shift the focus from politicians on to something like en...

Westbourne Woods
