A beautiful bouquet of yellow roses to manager Larch and cashier Sarifah, kind people working at the Real Canadian Superstore in Nanaimo.
Kudos to Walker, a young grey seagull who obviously can’t fly. It walks around cars and people outside Port Place mall looking for a few edible scraps.
A huge thank you to Wayne Madison for turning an unsightly space into a relaxing green space – just follow the meandering path.
A big bouquet of thanks to the following businesses for their help with Cilaire Elementary School’s paint sale in May: Green Thumb Garden Centre, Cinnabar Valley Garden Center Supplies, Costco and Real Canadian Superstore. We appreciate your support.
A big bouquet of thanks to friends and neighbours of Cilaire Elementary School. We appreciate those donating to and supporting our annual plant sale. It was a huge success.
A beautiful thank you bouquet to Deanna for treating me to dinner on my 65th birthday. Thanks also to Gail, Paul, Susan and John who joined us and made my special day even more memorable.
a Bouquet for the 4 p.m. pyjama beefer. I love my jammies. When I get off work at 3:30 p.m., I’m showered and in them by 4 p.m.
Many happy miles to Doug Burns for the always excellent and professional service.
A big thank you to the Mounties for making us feel safe at the Nanaimo Marine Festival’s fireworks event. Well done and we like your sense of humour.
Bouquets by the dozen to Baywood Glass for installing my patio door. They arrived on time, cleaned up throughout the entire process and left the glass sparkling clean.
A big bouquet to the two RCMP officers we saw taking the time to change a tire for an elderly man along the Nanaimo Parkway.
thanks to all of our customers and friends for their support over the past four years we operated Waterfront Confections in Nanaimo. We are sad we had to sell the little shop and return to Calgary to help our family. We will miss everyone. There were so many interesting people we met everyday. From Bob and Georgia.
A bouquet of roses to Absolutely Brilliant carpet cleaning. I recently purchased an Island Daily Deals coupon for this company, not realizing the coupons were intended for new customers only. When I phoned and explained that I had purchased the coupon because I liked their past service cleaning carpets in my home, they honoured the coupon anyway. Andy did a brilliant job of cleaning my 40-year-old carpets and they look like new.
A bouquet of beautiful dahlias to Doug and Gloria for organizing the dance at Unity Centre. I am looking forward to the September dance. And another bouquet to Doug, Heather and Vic for providing the awesome music.
A great big bouquet of beautiful roses to the staff at Woodgrove Centre’s Bentley store for exchanging a fanny pack with a connector that didn’t work even though it was bought at the other store and I didn’t have a receipt.
A big bouquet to Andre of Elephant Property Enhancement for the fabulous job he did painting our house. He was meticulous in the preparation and minor repairs so that we have a paint job that is sure to last many years. It was truly a pleasure to do business with him. From two satisfied customers.
a Superior Road Samaritan bouquet. Many thanks for stopping and giving me a ride. After spraining my ankle while running through Lantzville, then struggling to limp home, your act of kindness was most appreciated. From the Florida runner.
A bouquet of cupcakes to Have Your Cake & Eat It Too for donating a beautiful cake and cupcakes to the Leaders in Training 30th anniversary celebration. The cake was appreciated by all who attended, including volunteers past and present. On behalf of the program, thank you.
a large bouquet of roses to Steve Marshall Ford’s service department. I took my Ford Focus in for serving and they treated me like I had a luxury car. Great service.
Huge bouquets of plumbing pipes for Trevor at the city’s public works department for doing such a great job for us. Trevor is informative, helpful and efficient. He smoothed over all of the frustration and ruffled feathers at our construction site and went out of his way to expedite the solving of our problem.
A beef to the sales clerk who sings religious songs while at work. A bouquet to her co-workers, who have to listen to it.
A steaming heap of manure to all horseback riders who let their horses leave piles of poop all over the sides of the roads and then just ride off into the sunset. I’m sick and tired of having to slalom around your poo pylons every time I go out for a bike ride. You should be made to bag your beast’s business and dispose of it just like dog owners have to.
a beef. I’ve been thinking about the plan to have a holiday in February. B.C. Day is a made-up holiday, so why not move it to February? Or does that make too much sense?
A beef to the store that advertises 10-40 per cent off. Your prices end up more than many other stores.
A beef to the city for the unsightly state of the garden display at the Bowen Road entrance to Beban Park – weeds, broken scarecrows, etc. It used to be so beautiful. What happened?
a Beef to the company that quoted one price to us over the phone, then doubled the amount when we went to pay.
An inexcusable beef to a store for making me wait more than a month for a bed and for unprofessionally scolding me when I expressed my unhappiness at the situation. Accept full responsibility next time so we can move on.
A big beef to those Nanaimo residents with ‘don’t help, don’t care’ attitudes. My car broke down on the hottest day of the year at 3 p.m. in the afternoon. From the man in his yard who thought I was trying to steal his kid to the guy on the tractor who rode away as I stood at his fence to the people in five separate houses who wouldn’t answer their door – thank you. To the young couple who allowed me to use their phone on their front porch – thanks for that.
A get-a-life Beef to all the beefers out there. I am sorry that you are having such a terrible life. Try to think of something positive to reflect upon.
A huge beef to the young lady behind me recently at the pharmacy counter at a big box store, who was snapping her gum loudly in my ear and chewing like a cow chews cud. Her boyfriend stood there with her and didn’t say a word.
A beef to the driver who had the nerve to honk at me while making rude hand gestures as I was going the posted 30 km/h through the construction zone on Bowen Road. Learn how to drive. My great uncle works there.
