By johnboy 22 May 2009 46

1. Garran Crash:

    ACT Policing is investigating a collision at the intersection of Yamba Drive and Wisdom Street in Garran around 9.45pm on Wednesday (May 20).

    A silver Ford Territory was turning right from Yamba Drive into Wisdom street when a white Ford Falcon utility travelling south on Yamba Drive collided with turning vehicle.

    One of the passengers in the Territory was transported to The Canberra Hospital with minor injuries.

    Other vehicles were waiting in the intersection at the time of the collision and police believe these witnesses may be able to assist in identifying who had a green signal at the time.

    Anyone who may have witnessed this collision is urged to contact Crime Stoppers

2. Farrer Stabbing:

    ACT Policing has arrested a 32-year-old Farrer man after a stabbing which occurred in a home on Spafford Crescent, Farrer yesterday (May 21).

    Around 4.50pm police received reports of an altercation between two men during which a 31-year-old Farrer man was allegedly stabbed. ACT Ambulance attended and the victim was conveyed to The Canberra Hospital.

    AFP Forensic Services attend the scene and investigations into the circumstances surrounding the incident are continuing.

    The alleged male offender was arrested at the scene and is expected to face the ACT Magistrates Court today (May 22) charged with assault occasioning actual bodily harm.

Um, isn’t the Yamba Drive/Wisdom St intersection in Hughes, not Garran?

It’s always good to see people making it easy for the ambos by crashing outside the hospital. One day idiots turning right from yamba drive into Garran will learn not to run red lights.

Yeah ant agree but the magnet can damage the edge too if you’re really pedantic like me. My Furi knives are in a block , the every day ones (Victorinox) are kept in their original plastic sleeve they came in in the drawer.
Bottom line is, take care of your knives and you’re allegedly less likely to come to harm.

Oh and those drawing conclusions between the sheep stabbing and meat consumption, pull your head in.

Putting the knives in the drawer isn’t exactly good for their edges, either! Knife block, or magnet. I have 2 magnets and love them. You just stick your knives on.

Continuing this off topic route, do not place your good knives in the dishwasher up, down, sideways or anyways.
Handwash and dry them and place them safely back into a safe place in your drawer.

Using the dishwasher damages the edges on your knives and you’ll just have to sharpen them again and remember you’re more likely to cut yourself with a blunt knife than a sharp one.

BOT, I used to live near the crash.

One final piece of advice from me to ensure that none of you get accidentally ‘stabbed’ in the kitchen. Whenever you load sharp knives in a dishwasher, ALWAYS ensure that you have put them in with the handle in the upright position and not the blade. Always.

It doesn’t take much of a slippery floor to require a sh!tload of stitches.


Oh, and also, never think that it would never happen again in a million years, cause it can, it will, it did. (Luckily, not as brutally as the first time.)
