Re: Michael Harbison re-elected as Lord Mayor

Well done Michael and it's a shame you didn't get in David. Better luck next time. You'll get my support then too.

[COM] Re: #U/C - Rundle Convergence

This will be great when it's completed and I reckon I'd prefer this over a giant screen capable of playing live broadcast. That's been done the world over, this will be more special and I think much more interesting. It also opens up the opportunity to replicate the same thing on the other side (cen...

Re: Adelaide City Council Election 2007 (LORD MAYOR POLL)

Hey Al, Thanks for the vote, although you had better be quick in rushing it down to the post box by 6, otherwise it won't make it to the electoral office by tomorrow. Anne's probably worth giving a vote to, although her position on Vic Park changes a lot. You might want to look at Sarah Coligan, as...

Re: Adelaide City Council Election 2007 (LORD MAYOR POLL)

I'll be casting my vote tonight. I'm going to go with Harbo for Mayor and David Campbell for one of the area councillors but what do you guys reckon of Anne Moran? Reckon she's worth a vote given her stance on Victoria Park?

It does seem crazy but has anyone seen Taipei 101? It's currently the worlds tallest completed building and towers over every other building in the city. http://i21.photobucket.com/albums/b277/dnly00/Taipei-101a.jpg http://i21.photobucket.com/albums/b277/dnly00/Taipei-101b.jpg http://i21.photobucket...

Yep. No offense but "Victoria Square" sounds heaps better than some aboriginal name I can't remember after 5 minutes. Surely flying the aboriginal flag in Vic Square for the past century is enough to show any due respect.

Re: 7 Level Nexus Centre Port Road

Isn't it strange how the majority of low to mid rise projects display interesting architecture, yet the high-rise projects are pretty much boring glass cubes. Why is this so? Although I would say that this development is also a glass cube, I'd have to agree with you. The UniSA arts building on Nort...

I knew all along that CASA and AAL are fine with it. As stated many times before, planes do not fly OVER the cbd (much to the ACC's thinking that they do) anyways, given the thumbs up from these two authorities and recommendations of approval should only deliver a positive response. But hey, we all...

Re: Pandas coming to Adelaide!

Yes I've been to Taronga as well and I reckon our zoo is pretty good compared to that. I've taken our kids there and they loved it. I'll definitely be taking them again when the pandas arrive. I still cannot believe Adelaide scored such a coup. We're going to be one of the very few zoos around the w...
