Bike Rack Success?

By 16 November 2008 26

It's an interesting business watching Jon Stanhope come to grips with the huge Territory and Municipal Services portfolio. "He's actually visiting ALL the depots!" slightly awe-struck, and slightly concerned worker bees have been heard to utter over the weekend. Part of the introduction proces...

The Curry Kebab - Not as good as you might think

By 16 November 2008 39

Walking to Civic tonight we were debating whether to dine at the old favourite of Ali Baba, or try the new, and nearly next door "Grill Fusion" which offers on its signage to provide kebabs AND curry. This got us thinking that a good naan or roti bread could play host to a dryish curry formin...

Andi and George Band at the Holy Grail

By 15 November 2008 2

The band are probably still playing as I type this. But it's been a peculiar night so here I am amusing you, instead of me. The Holy Grail is an appalling venue in so many ways. The lighting is a nightmare and the sound is worse. Tonight there was a gifted sound man working the console and it...

Commuter or Day Tripper?

By 15 November 2008 67

Cycling on the roads can be a very risky business - hoping cars don't clip you as you ride along, avoiding potholes that could send you A over T, and taking Canberra's round-abouts-of-horror. I have a big pink girls bike with three (count them, three) gears, and am someone's mother, so I tend to ...

[First filed: November 14, 2008 @ 10:30] So there I was listening to Chief Minister's talkback on 666 and between the usual old farts, party shills and other assorted nutbaggery I was surprised to hear a familiar voice. Here's a link to a recording of the segment. There on the radio was th...

Unusual approach to recruitment ...

By 15 November 2008 35

Gus's Cafe have advertised in this morning's CBR Times classifieds for a kitchenhand, a cook, floor staff and a barista - and specified "no experience required"!

Bocking in Canberra

By 15 November 2008 9

No - not the beer - the Jumping Stilts. They are stilts with a spring on them and they are an upcoming craze, so my twelve year old nephew tells me. He is here on a visit from the Blue Mountains and says that there are a few bockers in Canberra. But where to find them to organise a bocking meet? ...
