Dedicated to the general sights, news and funny happenings in the wonderful city of Windsor
I'd like to address the people of the Ottawa Street area that keep breaking into cars of the store owners. We are trying hard to make the area a destination for commerce, which in turn will make the shops thrive and bring more jobs or the area. If you keep vandalizing our property we will move from the area to do business. For the small amount of gratification you get from the meager belongings you're stealing you're actually making the neighborhood worse for yourselves and your families. Work with us to make your area safe and prosperous so we can employ you, your brothers, sisters and other family members. Only then will you be able to have pride in yourselves. Do you really want all of the convieniences to leave the area? Be smart take care of the neighborhood you and all of us call home. You know the right thing to do, don't let us down. Put a stop the break-ins and vandalism. .

Spotted : To the person who hit the poor cat crossing the street on Wyandotte and Pierre today around 2pm and just took off, that was heartless. I left my work to make sure the cat didn't crawl off to die. The humane society came and picked her up to put her to sleep. My heart broke for this cat, she was alone and scared. At least she didn't have to suffer too long. R.I.P little cat.
A big thanks to staff workers at Shoppers in Tecumseh Mall & Jillian who painted my nails for a small donation towards Breast Cancer research. You ladies made my day. I am so glad that I had such great service today & we had general good conversations besides the things I was buying. Keep smiling, kindness goes a long way.

To the wonderful woman who helped me back out of my parking spot at Tecumseh Mall, after some buttface decided to park within an inch of my van, THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!!! I tried for almost 10 minutes to get out of that spot until you came along.

As I walked along Victoria Ave. Friday morning, I commented to two women how lovely their Christmas greenery looked. They told me that it was not their home, but that of their friend. They informed me that the family was in London because both their young daughters were getting back surgery as we spoke. They went on to say that they wanted to surprise the family with the decorations, when they returned from Londton. What a lovely gesture by these two thoughtful women, you have been spotted

Oh spotted in Windsor I need your help! My husband and I took our kids out of a gift exchange on my side of the family so that the kids can NOT receive a gift but GIVE a gift to a needy child. Our kids nowadays have EVERYTHING a kid could ever want so we decided to give to some needy kids this year and have our kids heavily involved. My husband and I went to Kholes in the states to purchase 20 stuffed animals to donate. At Kholes if u buy "certain" ones...they donate 100% to kids charities...so we thought yay! Double whammy! But one problem...we need ideas if WHERE we can go to donate these. I thought of having the kids give them to children in the hospital at this time of year but they won't let us do that. We could but wouldn't be allowed to give them out ourselves. Someone else would. Which is okay but defeats our point of our kids seeing the blessing they are doing by their giving. So that's where u guys come in! Where oh where can we donate these stuffies to unfortunate kids? My children would love to hand them out...any ideas????
