Roses and Rotten Tomatoes (May 14, 2015)


  • A gymnasium filled with roses to my sons Max and Noah for earning their black belts in Taekwondo. Attaboys!

  • Beautiful roses to two kind people at the dollar store on Friday May 1 about 6 p.m. who paid $10 to the cashier for my bill. Thank you for your unbelievable kindness.

  • A bouquet of pink and yellow roses to my mother, Susan Wosnack. Through a brave battle with lung cancer she stayed positive and was a true fighter to the very end. Roses and much love to you mom – Julie and Teddy are waiting for you and I bet you are excited to see them too!

  • A beautiful bouquet of roses to those who showed up at our garage sale on May 2. We had a "free or small donation to the food bank section" and your generous donations added up to $65. We topped it off to $100 and donated to the White Rock South Surrey location of Sources food bank. Thank you!

  • Roses to the people for not voting "Yes" to more stupid transit. You’re smart and you’re also saving a lot more money too – keep up the good work!

  • A bouquet of roses to the boy and his friends in the Rosemary Heights area who saved our little dog. They went out of their way to run and find her after I fell and she bolted. Your actions show that you are truly amazing and kind kids. Also, roses to the kind lady who drove me home so I could get my car to look for her. You are all my everyday heroes.


  • A Boeing 777 full of rotten tomatoes to certain air traffic controller(s) at YVR who direct airplanes over Surrey and White Rock between midnight and 7 a.m. which is contrary to the Noise Abatement Procedures. Flights are supposed to avoid populated areas during the night so that residents can sleep. Flights can be monitored and reported on the WebTrak website.

  • Rotten tomatoes to city hall for approving the noisy construction of the house next door and cleaning out pipes while nearly flooding our bathrooms, three times. If you want us to move after living in Surrey for 40 years, why don’t you just send a letter?

  • Rotten tomatoes to sports fishing television show hosts who always stand up in their boats and never, ever wear life jackets.

  • Awoke today to a helicopter spraying for the oh-so-elusive moths. It’s Sunday at 6:30 a.m. – Mothers Day for crying out loud! Rotten tomatoes to Hepner for apparently having her priorities backwards!

  • Rotten tomatoes to the many grocery stores who display fresh flowers at the entrance and near the checkout counters. Why not show some consideration and move your florist business away from the door and the cash registers? Many people have allergies and it is very irritating to have to suffer while waiting to pay for one’s groceries.
