What can be planted in Canberra vegie gardens right now?
Can I still put in broad bean seeds?
- Dear fellow Canberrans
I feel strongly that it is important you all know about developments in Fisk Street Monash.
In short yesterday the ACTPlanning Authority made another decision in favour of developers to the detriment of Canberra families.
It approved demolition of two stand alone house in a quiet residential loop street to be replaced with multistory units with underground parking.
Help our appeal, and be warned – your street may be next.
Suggest ACTPLA be renamed – Development Approval Authority (DAAAA) perhaps?
A sad day for Monash and a sad day for all of Canberra.
- To close off the comments off about the Downer Murders
What a beautiful message left in the Canberra times from the victims families,
after all the readings on this site I thought it would be nice to close the
comments and end it with the acknowledgment in today’s paper, may Julie & Straun
rest in peace & I am sure everyone would agree it would be nice to leave all comments now as both these families that remain have a hard road ahead of them. They are available online to see in the Canberra times these notices.
Have a great weekend everyone!

- As Wall St collapses and the economies in Europe and the US head into recession, possibly deep recession, it is clear the apologists for cattalism have little understanding of what is happening or why. Least of all do they know how to address the economic maelstrom that is occuring.
Is Australia immune? No. Global interest rates for business will rise (irrespective of what the Reserve bank does) and this will flow through to Australia in higher interest rates. Credit will become much tighter. China’s growth is beginning to slow and the butchers of Beijing (or their children) have begun to cut interest rates to keep the economy at growth rates of greater than ten per cent.
The RBA predicts unemployment in Australia will grow rapidly to over 5 per cent (it is currently 4.1 per cent), and one economist is predicting unemployment in late 2009 will pass 6 per cent. This is an extra 200,000 people unemployed.
Why is the world economy going to hell in a handcart?
