Ups and downs of life

North Taranaki Midweek - - YOUR LOCAL NEWS - KATH BROWN OPIN­ION

THUMBS UP

TO: Clarke Gay­ford who will be start­ing a fa­thers’ group and a play­group for the chil­dren at Premier House. And if not, why not?

TO: Roger Fed­erer. He is proof that form is tem­po­rary but class is for­ever. It’s prof­itable too - he has won more than US$111 mil­lion in prize­money. At least, even with two sets of twins he won’t have to worry about the cost of school uni­forms.

TO: The mayor putting the ki­bosh on free­dom campers mak­ing a mess all over the place and tak­ing up park­ing ar­eas so lo­cals strug­gle to find a park. Once again a self­ish few make life un­pleas­ant for oth­ers.

THUMBS DOWN

TO: Jacinda’s preg­nancy. I am so over this. If you be­lieve everything you read Je­sus’ birth pales into in­signif­i­cance.

TO: Flies. Any­one would think we were liv­ing in Oz.

TO: The price of school uni­forms. Why can’t par­ents buy shirts and shorts at the Ware­house? Who is mak­ing the money here?

TO: Who­ever bought all the fans in town.
