Do we even care about water restrictions any more?

By 22 February 2009 67

Over the last few weeks each time I drive past one of the "water target" signs, it appears we are consistently using many more ML than the target. There was a post [here] a month ago about the high water usage. So what's the go guys? Do we no longer care about water savings or do I simply driv...

Paradise at the Business Park

By 22 February 2009 30

Exiting the Airport earlier today, I suddently realised I was driving past a Garden of Eden-like environment. Where else in Canberra is the grass as green? The fountains as squirty? The statues as relaxed? The only snake in this garden is, as usual, the people who do not clean the b...

All Civic Parking to be Multi-Storey

By 22 February 2009 36

Did we know this? I've just been told by my partner, a manager in the building industry, that they (ie, local construction companies) had recently been notified that, by the end of 2010, all street-level car parks in Civic will be made multi-storey (with smaller 'footprints'). Has the re...

RiotACT favourite Todd Carney is obviously finding that life is quite tough when you have to work for a living. And so, with that in mind, the SMH is reporting that he may take off to the US of A to play american football. Frankly, I cannot see this happening. [ED - Can't see the US Embass...

Brumbies claw out a home win at the death - 18-16 over the 'Saders

By 21 February 2009 12

Rugbyheaven have the happy news that an out-gunned and overwhelmed Brumbies outfit scraped a win over the mighty (but injury depleted) Crusaders at the Stadium In Bruce tonight. The match report is, however, a total lie as it refers to "windy conditions" on a still night. Also with Stirling Mo...

Review Ocean to Outback Exhibition CMAG

By 21 February 2009 1

Stumbling and bumbling around Civic today, I detoured through CMAG on the way to the library when, whoa, there is a MAJOR exhibition on! Names even I know like Streeton, Boyd, Cossington Smith, Drysdale... All in a virtually empty hall at lunchtime. So if you like your art uncrowded, I su...

Tongue and Groove the new sensation?

By 21 February 2009 18

The Friday afternoon boozing scene in Civic has a new player that seems to be sweeping all before it. Tongue and Groove on Bunda Street is always so chokkas when I go past that I haven't even had a chance to go in and find out what it's like. The decor certainly seems to feature a lot of w...

By 21 February 2009 10

Milk Crate Man in Garema Place has been a big hit. But all is not well with the big guy. He appears to have been brought low and no-one's willing or able to help him. Life isn't easy in the big city. ...
