Canberra Home Delivery Food?

By 25 October 2014

I've just moved to Canberra and quite like it... except for the take-away and home delivery choices (or at least those I've found so far). Why does Pad Thai cost $16.50 (Lemon Grass)? In Sydney $12 is expensive. Same goes for Indian food... curries at $17-20 is a rip-off for take away. And why n...

By 24 October 2014 27

I'm interested on hearing thoughts on this, I recently purchased a new car from a dealer in Phillip that shall remain nameless (although it does rhyme with shommonwealth boaters).  Anyway, I went to pick it up and when the salesperson was handing over the keys and going through some features (its p...

Affordable Canberra housing.... so close.

By 15 October 2008 67

Well done on increasing the first home owners grant K-Dudd.   Just when Canberra housing was stabilising and, in some cases, decreasing - you go and f&*k it up by increasing the first home owners grant! Oh, but not for me - (predominantly, and by most accounts known to me) for the snotty n...

Taxi Charge ACT vs NSW

By 14 October 2008 50

I would like an answer from the government about the difference between the Taxi vouchers for people with disabilities. While NSW only get a 50% discount while ACT 75% off. If someone from NSW wanted to work in the ACT from Queanbeyan it’s not feasible for them to travel to ACT for employ...

WTF is going on in Canberra these days?

By 14 October 2008 13

I have just read this article and it is apparent that there is really something wrong with Canberra these days.   How can a Lady who takes a standover man to another Lady's residence to cause trouble not get charged? A 24-year-old Canberra man has been found guilty of threatening a woman with ...

My better half has had his third near death experience in 2 years as a result of yellow shirts (AKA tradespeople) not securing their load.

The changing landscape of Canberra music venues

By 14 October 2008 3

Change is in the air. The Just Bands list of Canberra venues is both incomplete, and now….out of date. Things have changed, or are about to…eg. The Green Room, which for years has been our better venue, is about to go the way of the DoDo. So…where to play/watch bands play? What are the...

Election wrap - 14 October

By 14 October 2008 25

Morgo lands a hit! Labor ran the following ad last night: Interestingly Katy runs a part of the opposition attack on her leader (from the youthful Brindabella Liberal David Morgan) and then comes to the defence of the old curmudgeon. I can't help thinking Mr Stanhope would have prefer...
