Recently moved in and am looking for pest control to be done at the new place.
There are stacks of options online, with quotes varying quite a bit, so I was wondering whether anyone could recommend a reliable pest control service in the area?
I’ve noticed a previous post on the topic but that was a few [...]
In Sydney last month, on the recommendation of a friend, I tried out some dondurma in Auburn. Dondurma is turkish ice cream. It’s got a different texture, and it doesn’t melt as easily. Apparently, it’s made with the gelatin-like substance they use in turkish delight, which explains its different texture. But the orchid it’s derived [...]
I was wondering what peoples expierences with Headspace ACT, the youth mental health service are?
I have been provided with the great task of helping my younger sister (16) get some support.
Any ideas? Or opinions of the service mentioned above?
Good evening, rabble,
I have a 4/4 ‘cello that needs to be valued and given a quick “service” to ensure it is in good working order: sound post, bridge position, check for any cracks, check tone is still up to scratch etc.
Having done a search on RiotACT for “cello” I was unable to find a post [...]
My partner and I plan to get married at the beginning of next year and are looking for a celebrant.
Looking online there are a vast number of possibilities – but how do we know any are good?
We don’t have any specific religious persuasions but don’t really want to end up with any crazy new-age stuff [...]
Cocopops seeks the wisdom of the hive mind and has sent in this picture with the following query:
Wondering if any rioters know what eggs these are?
I’ve found them on clothes, in my peg basket in the bathtoom etc.
Tried google but no luck.
I live northside, but am willing to venture over to the southside for friendly and great customer service!
Has anyone had bed experiences with certain video rental stores?
I’ve moved to Canberra recently near the city centre. Due to the nature of my job (and the fact that I cannot get up before 5am…), I would like to go for a run at around 11pm / midnight.
I was considering running around Lake Burley Griffin but some parts of the lake do not [...]
Does anyone know of a builder in Canberra who will allow me to use my own materials, e.g. windows, doors and vanities?
All the builders I have been in contact with want to use their own supplier, and I have found that they are too expensive.
If anyone has any suggestions I would love to [...]
I’m in need of a travel agent who can make serious recommendations.
Are there any proper agents in Canberra rather than trained operators of airline websites?
While i am currently away from our “beloved” city. Social networking keeps telling me that
“They’ve heated the tap and fountain water at civic center in order to bolster sales of bottle water. ”
In reference to both DFO and Canberra centre, from my understanding its been quite hot so hot water in the pipes makes sense [...]
Calling for recommendations for Gardeners – Southside.
My garden is in need of renovation – nothing too fancy, need low maintenance for renters. I need bushes removed and some garden beds redone/mulched.
Over to you Rioters
So let me get this straight. When your neighbour’s have a pesky barking dog that doesn’t shut the hell up, you have some options. There are phone numbers to ring & people who listen & document your complaints, websites & forums with helpful suggestions, organisations such as bark busters who will come to the house, [...]
Hi all. I am looking for recommendations (or libelous comments, humorus anacdotes, etc) concerning podiatrist services in Canberra.
A family member is looking for ingrown toe nail related medical attentention, and no one has any specific experience.
Hi, My kitchen is in serious need of a facelift, but I am worried about finding a good company. I am on a budget, I don’t need luxury or high fashion but I still want it to be done properly and look nice. I want to find someone who will advise me on a cost [...]
There have of course been other posts. This one is from 2009. I’d like some more recent recommendations of good and reliable builders who have built a deck/pergola.
Also, typically – how long does it take? Just need to know because we have two Kelpies and will need to keep them out of the way while [...]
I need a Hall to hold a gaming event (LAN).
I can’t find any that allow overnight stay while even offering $300.
If anyone knows anywhere we could go, please share.
There have been threads on here before regarding mole removal here in Canberra. But i need information that is a little specific and isn’t mentioned in the previous threads.
I am a giant sook when it comes to surgery, small or big. I am looking for a place to remove a mole I have on my [...]
We have a question regarding school enrollment:
Our 12 year old is in year 7 at Melba. For work and commute reasons, we want to relocate. We are planning to rent an apartment in the Telopea Park School area in February since we like that school. We were under the impression that [...]
I have made the most common mistake that any novice landscaper can make:
I assumed that ALL TOOLS ARE CREATED EQUAL
I went to that big green warehouse and picked up some basic gardening tools (at the cheaper end of the price scale) and used them for all of 15 min before the handle of the [...]
I’m a first time dog owner. Got my little 4 month old pup from the animal pound. This tiny pup has turned into Godzilla in 4 months. We thought we had it all covered (taught her to sit and fetch) but it turns out that she needs some obedience classes. She’s a gentle giant and [...]
need recommendation for magic fingers, a sports physio for a bodgy ankle…
As a pretty awful 2011 winds to a close I’m interested what the rest of you think 2012 is going to be like.
No need for concrete predictions, what’s the vibe of the thing for Canberrans?
2012 will be…
Better than 2011
Worse than 2011
To my wife and I being Mexican food fans, the lack of Mexican/Spanish restaurants in Canberra can sometimes be frustrating.
I am only aware of the two in Manuka – Franscisco’s and Legends.
Excellent restaurants but a little far away to our location. Google has come up null so I thought I’d thought I’d try my luck here, any help [...]
PoQ has sent in this picture asking who can explain it:
While canoeing on Googong Dam, I noticed this.
What is it?
An automatic level indicator?
A signpost for aliens?
It was in a fairly shallow part of the dam, within about a mile (1600 m for younger viewers) of the dam wall.
I just found this rather horrifying specimen on my front porch.
Does anybody know what it is? Some kind of cockroach-bee-grasshopper hybrid abomination?
It was about 4 centimetres long.
I chucked it over the fence in the hopes that it doesn’t find its way back!
Hi there everyone.
We are planning a trip and are looking for a house sitter for a 4 week period. We have used online services to locate babysitters locally before and have found this service:
It all looks great and seems cool, but I am wanting to find out if anyone in the Canberra region has used [...]
We took some visitors from Sydney to dinner last night firstly to Jammo Wests where we we’re denied entry as we had rubber thongs on.
Needless to say the previous day we’d been to many places in Sydney in the same thongs but no, not allowed in the pokie palace at
Jammo. Next was an [...]
I prefer my oysters freshly shucked and unrinsed.
Have knife, can open.
Does anyone know of any suppliers around town, perhaps a van that comes up from the coast?
Is there a wholesaler or some sort of scrapyard in Canberra where I can buy a large slab of marble (maybe 1.5 square metres), either rough or polished?
Also, does anyone know how much I might pay for such a piece?
An astonishingly large number of media items proclaim Government support for male health programmes.
However, Google searches indicate that unless you (as a male) are at high risk of AIDS, the pox, suicide or family disintegration, ordinary male specific medical services seem non existant.
Personally, I am less than impressed with my local GP. I would like [...]
