Roses and Rotten Tomatoes (Oct. 2, 2014)

  • Myriads and myriads of roses to the kindhearted people who cared for me when I fell unconscious to the sidewalk at 88th Avenue and 152nd Street on Sept. 19. I awoke to a beautiful blonde-haired angel by my side. May God bless you. I’m forever grateful for your kindness.


  • Roses to whoever found our son’s wallet and came over to return it (with all his cards and money still inside!) and, when we weren’t home, left a note on our door and dropped the wallet off at Ocean Park Safeway so it would be safe until we could pick it up. Incredibly kind and thoughtful! We so appreciate you! Thank you from the Johnsons.


  • A great, big rosebush of fragrant blooms goes out to Clover Lanes bowling alley for making our walking club’s recent fundraising event such a positive experience for our club. You did a great job to make everything run smoothly. Great food, great service, clean establishment – we had so much fun. Thanks you from Tracy M.


  • Endless thanks and beautiful bouquets of purple roses to all who have provided care and hope while I battle lymphoma: my family, caregivers and friends, the staff of the BCFV cancer clinic, Peace Arch Hospital ER and 6 North, Surrey Memorial Hospital ER and 5 North, and my generous blood and platelet donors. You have given the gift of life.


  • A gymnasium full of roses to the Delview 2014 Theatre Company for presenting an amazing, hilarious play The Man Who Came To Dinner, which featured student actors from Grade 8 to 12 who spent long hours after school to bring the play to life. A giant bouquet of roses to Mark LeBourdais for sharing his acting experience with the cast and crew; he was truly “the man who rarely came home to dinner.” Bravo.

  • Rotten tomatoes to the strata guy who used ‘Roses and Rotten Tomatoes’ to call someone names and threaten them. You are a bully. If it’s the guy who was running a circular saw in his front yard all summer, a summer’s worth of rotten tomatoes dumped on your head.


  • Three huge organic bins full of rotten tomatoes to the City of Surrey’s organic disposal. Not only have they picked up once in the past three weeks, they don’t bother to pick up after a complaint has been made. Shame on you for leaving rotting food for weeks on end. I pay for your services and try to make for a greener earth. The city has raised the price on disposal, but fail to dispose. No wonder Cloverdale is having rat problems. I am sure you will not do two extra dumps for all the leaves that have piled up in my yard over the last month from a huge tree I am not allowed to cut down as per your bylaws. Shame on you!


  • Rotten tomatoes to our North Surrey neighbour who keeps any and all balls, toys and sandals that fall into his yard. Last weekend, our six-year-old granddaughter was throwing her sandal into our apple tree to knock apples down and, sure enough, the sandal went over the fence. She tried to apologize for her misjudgment; however, the sandal went the way of all other items that happened to go in his yard. Why doesn’t this man move to acreage so he doesn’t have to have neighbours close by?


  • Rotten tomatoes to the Now. Trying to navigate the online edition of the paper is impossible. The popup ads are ridiculous. Give us a break.


  • Rotten tomatoes to the Now for printing the mindless personal attacks that readers send in. If it is a legitimate public issue, that’s great, but personal attacks reflect poorly on the sender and your staff.nutjob who keeps bothering the strata council. I feel very sorry for these people that they have to put with a lowlife scumbag like you. You’re a creep and nobody likes you. It if was me, you’d think twice before shooting off your big mouth. Shut up and go away.
