Happy birthday Belconnen! You have certainly matured well! 

Hopefully there are are some cool events on to celebrate this monumental occasion, I dare say scope out the park opposite the mall and the waterfront but I'll do some digging to see what I can find out... Check back here before the weekend!

Has anyone noticed the fish sculpture/installation on the corner of Market st. and Lathlain dr. in Belconnen near the markets and Bunnings? Don't feel bad if you haven't, I drive past there on a daily basis and have lived in the area for 10 years now and only just seen it for the first time last weekend.

It was (upon reading the plaque) installed there in 1990 by some art students but even more curiously is called "Albert". I can't help but wonder if this was a sneaky tribute to one of the most vile and sadistic serial killers of all time "Albert Fish" 

Oddly enough it was only through an app called "Ingress" that my boy downloaded on the phone which uses local landmarks like an orienteering game so you have to go find the object and tag yourself there on GPS. 

Anyway I thought it was pretty cool and its given me a heads up to slow down a little and observe my surroundings, you never know what you'll find :)

Hope you all have a great long weekend! Be good on the roads, you know the police will be out in force and they've got the double demerit thing happening all long weekend... but other than that... have fun have a beer or steak for me!

Just went through my first ever 30  kph school zone ... Boy it was slow! I'm not sure how I feel about this, especially if there's more slated to come in around other schools but be warned... this one was in Latham

CBR free wifi

Has anyone noticed they can get free wifi in the town centres now? I ran out of phone credit the other day and really needed to check something and found i can log on "CBR free wifi" in my "settings --> wifi ---> search --->" part of my phone ... (it should be a similar function path on most phones) I've been able to log on in belconnen (Lathlain and Benjamin way) Civic (Bunda, Lonsdale, Mort st...) and in Manuka (canberra ave) I'm going to check out where else this works but its a great feature of this city
