year and a half. He was

arrested after arriving on an

Air Asia flight. The head of the investigation says his

officers allegedly found 1.7

grams of methamphetamine in 4 packages carefully concealed

in the side panels of the bag

but he says he knew nothing

about the drugs. No, I

borrowed the bag. I do not

have a bag. I just borrowed

a bag to put some clothes

Europe's debt crisis appears

absolutely clear for us is the credibility and the

delivery of this unequivocal

commitment to correct the

excessive deficit by 2014. Spain's first

nationwide strike in close to

a decade revealed the

feeling what it is like to

work hard. These residents of

the youth justice centre who

more trades and skills here

in the ACT so this gives them

first-hand experience to test

have done the program this week. Many resident week. Many resident are to sure what the future holds.

They are looking for an

Steelers have never won, it

merger we were lucky enough

to get there in 99 but could

it will be great for the

region if they can get up.

They are always hard the pick

but I tend to favour the

Dragons for their consistency and the very they present as a defensive

side. This is Roosters

heartland but you would not

know it to look at it. We

should get them down. Get

support here but it is

understated. Go the Roosters! Some Roosters! Some have jumped

on the band wagon of their

Mark Carmody in among the

bonzai at Commonwealth Park.

What are you doing down


Yes, we are down her at the

national bonzai collection as

part of the Floriade month

but it is on 12 months of the

year. It is stunning. I will

tell you a bit about it after

the weather but this tree is

- first started in 19 74 and

is going absolutely strong. The tallest trunk on this

tree here is a metre. In real

life it gets up to something

like 60 or 70 metres

there is one growing in Canberra. It almost looks

like you are standing in a little fairyland of some

sort. It is a bit like a

fairyland. Almost a bit eerie

too because we have the

lights of Floriade on and it

is dark in here. Believe me.

Just give us the weather and

we will come back we will come back to you. Alright! So to the

weather. As you know it was

cloudy for most of the morn wing the sun finally pushing

through just as the lunch

break finished. We reached a

maximum of 16 before. Down

her among the mini trees it

is very pleasant, a bit cold,

but still very nice. Outside

the ACT today most centres

got to either 17 or 18.

Around our country today

Melbourne was sunny for the

final training run before tomorrow's big clash.

Adelaide was clear and sunny

and reached 22. Perth again

had a pearler, clear and 26.

On the last morning before daylight saving start

the sun is up at 5.38 setting

at 6.07. Similar conditions

on Sunday with wind a little

bit stronger, 30 km/h. On our holiday Monday wet again

unfortunately with easing

wind and a warmish top 21. That beautiful specimen to

your right, I'm not much of a

green thumb but how difficult would it would it be to grow something like that? They have all

been grown from seed. They

were last planted in 1993 so

quite difficult. There is no

roof over me here so it gets

all the natural rainfall and

sunlight that comes through

but collection is exquisite.

At the moment there are about

30 sitting here and they have

a total collection of 70. In

18 months it will slip up the

its permanent home but you

can come here 7 days a week

365 days a year. I do not

think they are open on

Christmas Day but every other

day. Looks terrific. Thank

you for showing us all the

bonzai. Stay with us for you in Civic where some amazing amazing sand sculptures have

emerged along City Walk. Have

a great weekend. Goodnight. Closed captions by This Program is Captioned
