In need of some advice please.
My husband and I need to break the lease on our rental property, we still have 4 months left of the fixed term. We are having to break lease due to a loss of income and my husband has moved away from Canberra for work and we cannot afford 2 [...]
There seems to be an excessive amount of restaurants and cafe’s in the capital, the standard from personal experience is quite low in many forms of the dining experience, especially in the quality of food or poorly made coffees, with the exception of a top restaurant starting with “S” that I found to be excellent [...]
Breif history is that I had my thyroid removed 10 years ago and have been on medication ever since. First couple of years on thyroxine thyroid medication were up and down, next 6 perfect. Last 2 have been up and down again with various symptoms, doctors appointments, blood tests every 6 weeks, adjustment of medication then go [...]
Hi there fellow Rioters,
I am hoping to obtain some recommendations for a high quality, professional photographer. I’m looking for someone to photograph the progress of the construction of a commercial building over an 18 month period (located in a suburb near the Canberra CBD).
Someone with building/real estate experience would be ideal.
Good Day Rioters,
Simple question – What it the fastest provider in Belconnen’s North?
I currently have an ADSL 2 plan with BigPond – but they seem to take a large amount of my cash for a stack of services I don’t use. Their speed and reliability are OK – but nothing to write home about. I [...]
As a man of surplus girth I sometimes find it hard to get a business shirt that will button up across my large neck but not look like a poncho around the rest of my chest.
Does anyone know any menswear shops that cater for such a thing so that I wouldn’t have to go down [...]
Does anyone know an apple orchard where you can pick your own?
The only source I found is from 2003.
Willing to drive up to an hour.
I’m looking to move my modem from it’s current mess-of-cables in the kitchen to a cupboard, but I’ll need to get someone in to do cabling (at the very least, to install a powerpoint) and was wondering if anyone had recommendations of installers. (Best quote so far is about $150/point)
Hey guys, I was interested in catering for around 75 people in a few weeks.
Just cocktail food that can be delivered to our house hot and cold for around $250.
Is this feasible for the price or are we better off just doing something ourselves?
Hi there and Happy Easter fellow Riot’ers. I’m wondering if you can again offer me some sagely advice? I have recently purchased an older property that has stood empty for at least the last three months and we are encountering creepy crawlies everywhere.
For my partner’s piece of mind, we’re considering getting pest control in to [...]
I know there’s a few threads about this but as far as I can tell, none from this year / late last year, so I thought it might be worth asking around since apparently Justin’s is now closed etc.
I’m thinking of a navel piercing – I’ve had 3 cartilage ones done at Redpath and 1 [...]
So I work in a large agency, and have done for the 4 years of my time here in Canberra.
I recently stunned myself by being found the least-worst candidate for a position in a small agency. The position comes with a significant pay rise but I’d have to leave a place where is honestly [...]
I understand the car fair in Mitchell no longer exists, but does the one in Woden still happen? Anywhere else?
Will they be happening over Easter?
Some friends and I are looking to move in to a house together. We all study/work in either Belconnen or the City, so rentals on the north side are looking good.
One area that really appeals are the Gungahlin suburbs south of the town centre (big new houses, not far from the City/Belco, [...]
Hi, anyone have recommendations for gas ducted heating installers?
Our house has existing (unused) system but am looking to get more points (ducts) installed….thanks
Seen this morning at LBG.
About 4 inches long.
Couldn’t get better images as I was too scared to get close to it.
What’s the go with that construction site near Parliament House that is being operated by the Chinese embassy?
It looks like they are constructing a factory and there is dorm accommodation out the back.
The security is extensive, cameras and barbed wire.
I’m thinking of painting a concrete path.
I was thinking of Berger paving paints.
Has anyone used this, or can suggest another product?
Could these bugs be falling with the rain – they are always there after rain fills containers like fine grey ash on the surface.
Or could they be some insect life stage quickly appearing in rainwater ?
They are very alive – legs working well.
I have tried Google – but got no leads.
I know this may seem odd but I’m super keen on a vintage wood flip clock/alarm/radio but I have no idea where to even look or start here in Canberra.
So I was looking for suggestions on where I might find my clock (other than ebay) or if any fellow rioters had a flip [...]
I need some suggestions for a cheaper front facade.
Rendering the whole front is costing me a 1,500 to 2,000. Stack stone is costing me around the same.
But are there any cheaper solutions? I have rendering bricks in front of my house and would like to make my facade appear better.
Thanks in advance.
I know there have been variations on a theme in the past.
Looking at getting a Colorbond style metal roof for many reasons.
Any suggestions re roofing companies?
Thanks in advance
A question for the hive mind that needs revisiting:
Where’s the best Yum Cha in Canberra, and the best on the northside if they don’t coincide?
seeking advice on PA hire.
looking a five channel mixer, 2 cd players, 2 turntables (vinyl who’d have thought it;) & speakers (plus all the required cables, etc)… only required for the one evening (friday)
done a wee search, but recommendations would be appreciated:)
I have to drop someone off at Jolimont at 6:30 tomorrow morning.
Is there anywhere around there that might be open for a coffee at six-ish?
Just wondering if any ofr the Rioters can identify this caterpillar that was on my railing yesterday morning?
Does anyone know where I could buy cleaned Canberra red bricks?
We are looking for between three and four thousand.
Some idea of price would also be good, Thanks.
Paying for petrol this morning, I stuck my card in the reader and entered my PIN – “incorrect PIN” came the message, so I tried again and, again, got the same message.
“Just tap it, buddy” said the attendant (risking a stern finger-wagging for the use of that appalling American appellation). Mistaking my chagrin at his [...]
I live in the Oracle apartments in Belconnen.
Does anyone else living in an apartment in either Belconnen or Canberra seem to have problems getting parcels delivered?
In my case the deliverer doesn’t seem to even leave a card saying they’ve called, which means I have no way of knowing whether or not I’ve received something. [...]
I’m considering going to the Magistrates Court to dispute a parking infringement issued to me. Now before you all blast me and tell me to pay up, don’t waste taxpayers money, don’t be a tightarse etc I want you to know I’m not doing an “Dr Enfield’ or anything needless like that (I pay any other fines [...]
Has anyone else had someone putting screws in their tyres?
I have had on 3 seperate occasions now found the same type of screw in the same tyre.
It has been the same tyre each time and on the outer top edge of the tyre so I think someone must be doing it.
I’m looking to do some local press advertising for my business. Before I spend a small fortune on advertising, I’d love to hear your views on where my advertising dollar is best spent eg:
- City News
- Canberra Weekly
- Canberra Times
