    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

    Hi all,

    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!

    We would like to acknowledge the professionalism and assistance given to us by the AFP, Wendy.McDonald from white lady funerals, Rev Elaine.Gifford, Monica Jansen from the Quality Inn Dickson, Charles.Saleh of Furva Design and WIN TV.

    Rest in Peace Jules

    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?

    Socialist Alternative will be looking at the question and providing their own explanantion for the crisis.

    Capitalism in Crisis. Socialist Alternative. 6 pm Thursday 9 October in room G 52 Haydon Allen Building ANU.

I was talking to Graham the plant guy from Better Homes & Gardens at the Home Show today about soil improvement prior to establishing our new gardens, and he said that broad beans are the best thing to plant your hole yard out in for one year before gardening, but he said it is tool late now for broad beans.

So I guess that is a no for planting them for consumption too.

On the soil improvement (for anyone interested), he said substitute other beans, peas and/or lupins for a late start. The reason for doing this is that they have a deep penetrating tap root that breaks up the dastardly clay we have, and help organics get in deep, plus they are nitrogen fixers of course.
