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

By 30 March 2010 10

I have recently been on a fitness kick and have been walking daily from Curtin to Weston Park. This takes me right through Westbourne Woods. I have to come to see that most Canberran's have never heard about the place. The WikiPedia article explains: Westbourne Woods is an area of exotic tree ...

By 30 March 2010 21

Jeanette Lang is a local ex Scientologist who has come out to tell of her horrific treatment at the hands of Scientology, and to call for a Senate inquiry into the practices of the "church". I've always thought that Scientology was exploitative and a total sham, but this is truly shocking. It...

Looking for a good doctor...

By 29 March 2010 16

I know this post has been done before. The most recent one I found is from September last year and with the way doctors are I'm sure majority of the recommended ones have moved around. My family doctor moved interstate and I have tried several other doctors, but am yet to find one I like. Jus...

Just a quick message to say that nothing is cool about speeding around residential areas like Chisholm and Monash, and if you think your tough spinning the wheels in the rain consider that a 10yo kid could spin the wheels on their pushbike.
