I won't ever ever ever mention politics or politicians ever ever ever again on this forum. I promise :blink: :lol:
We're a pretty apathetic bunch here is Australia when it comes to politics. Mandatory to vote but some ridiculous amount of people who dont or don't both ticking a box. So.. I hadn't anticipated the response. Was just an otherwise boring ol' day in Canberra :D

When were you in Canberra HelpMe (but hopefully with a new name soon)?

oh and the Irish like it here at the moment.. infact lots of Europeans like it too. mmm and Canadian. More and more South Americans in town. Asia Pacific. Africa. Middle East. Not a lot of folk from Iceland yet but they will come.

There MUST be more to Canberra than what I saw!!! Besides walking for miles and getting nowhere, if you didn't have a car there was nothing to do - and it was dead before 5::00 :rolleyes:

One of the rules here is that you must respect other people.

That rule applies to identifiable persons who may not be members of the board. That includes President Barack Obama.

Whether you like him or not, this is not the place to judge him.

Good rule Peter!

You guys must have spent a lot of time in Canberra walking around in circle and around roundabouts:)

There is loads going on around Canberra in Autumn and especially Spring. Winter is hybernation and summer is at the coast. It is one of those places that you really need to know a local to know what is going on around town. Another problem is that a lot of people visit the Australian capital and expect it to be big and busy like WashingtonDC, London, Beijing etc. And a lot of foreigners have the Sydney impression of Australia :(
Oh and you do need a car. Public transport disaster IMO. no offence to busdrivers ;)

At least it brings some excitement to Canberra......

Don't get me wrong, I love Australia and absolutely loved the architecture in Canberra and the way the city was so perfectly planned and laid out. But Canberra was sooooooo quiet. The city was dead after 5:00 and on weekends.


Canberra
boring? I am absolutely certain, Helpme, that you have NOT ever been to Ottawa.. . . .. . .. we make virtually every other capital city seem like Mardi Gras....

:lol:

It is such a long bloody trip for my family and me, and that's why we haven't been yet. One day we are coming Down Under -- I have vowed this! We have good friends just outside of Perth.
Just need to wait for an enormous tax return... . . .....or inheritance...... :rolleyes:.....


One of the rules here is that you must respect other people.

That rule applies to identifiable persons who may not be members of the board. That includes President Barack Obama.

Whether you like him or not, this is not the place to judge him.


And hey, ya never know -- in all of the nightmarish challenges that have faced President Obama in the past three years, his skyrocketing stress level may have triggered the onslaught of an autoimmune attack and subsequent symptoms.... . .. he may well have dropped in here! .. . . .. ..IN FACT.........(((((eyes narrowing))))))........we all need to carefully reread diandliam's opening post to this thread.... . .....

....Does the wording, the tone.. . . . ...seem......somewhat........presidential?.....

Yup, methinks that diandliam is President Obama. Craftily feeling out his general popularity.. . .. ...quite brilliant, actually. Who would suspect a celiac forum member posting from Canberra? Yup.....gotta be him.

:lol: :rolleyes:

OMG... . . if anyone hits Ottawa with those kind of expectations.. . . ...gaaaaaaaahhh!
