Dedicated to the general sights, news and funny happenings in the wonderful city of Windsor
2 accidents today rerouted and managed to get off at Howard from expressway only to run out of gas at Howard and geandmaris. It was busy but being in the middle lane only half a block from gas station I, a female got out and pushed to get out of all the traffic. Trying to get the cars to let me to the curb lane. While pushing a car so many are in a rush but these 2 gentleman parked in gas station and came to my rescue. Thank you so much for all your help getting me over to the gas station, it was much much easier with 3 of us !!
A transport on its side at Huron line and accident at Howard please guys slow down and let's all get to where we need to in 1 piece !!
Thanks to the Downtown Windsor Community Collaborative, Our West End, The Glengarry Initiative and Ford City for coming together and hosting this workshop, Windsor Votes! It was a fabulous first step in determining what it is going to take to get Windsorites to the polls. In light of the latest report about poverty in the West End, there was amazing compassion displayed for the less fortunate in our city. I'm going to do my part to get more people to the meeting in July.
Let's make it easy on these groups and promise to vote in October!! We can't let 37% of registered voters (most living west of Ouellette) decide what happens in Windsor.

My hope for the above group is they can get more participation from all parts of the city.
Job well done!
Recently I've had a family member in hospital and rehab. It's become very clear to me that the nurses are not just nurses. They encourage the patient with caring and kind words, they calm the family and help us find what info we need. They put in so much extra love and care into their work. And they feel more like they are an advocate for the patient and family even though they work in a system that gives them bare minimum as far as resources.
I can't believe that in 2018 Windsor hospitals are still using paper charts. We went from emerge to surgery to a room to rehab and we had to repeatedly ask the same questions and catch them all up on what's going on. A paper chart with 100 pages in it is NOT ACCEPTABLE. WHY DO WE NOT HAVE DIGITAL COMMUNICATION IN HOSPITALS TO SET OUR NURSES UP FOR SUCCESS?
I sincerely hope this is part of the plans. How do we expect doctors and nurses not to make any mistakes if they have to flip through a paper chart for each patient. I'm disgusted. Give these Angels some help!
To the POS that hit our dog June 18th on South Talbot in Maidstone at 4:30 this afternoon. My husband watched you as you drove away. You took our much loved family member from us ,we had to let her go you hurt her so badly.
So to the person who was driving the later model tan escape I hope you sleep well and watch out because karma will get YOU!!
Today I was involved in an accident on Walker Road. I was side swiped / rear-ended by another vehicle with my kids in the car. I was obviously shaken and angry at the time.
A man saw the accident, pulled over, took pics and made sure I was ok. He stayed to give a statement, and kept checking on us.
Never having dealt with this situation before, I was pretty flustered. The officer helping me through it was amazing. He talked about his spoiled cat after finding out that I work in a pet supply store.. just doing what he could to keep me calm.
Unfortunately, I didn't get either man's name.. but I do want to recognize the fact that today was made just a little easier due to both of them.
I would like you both to know how much your kind gestures meant to me today.
On Saturday June 16 2018 at 830pm my family went fishing under the ambassador bridge I noticed a baby goose was stuck in a fenced in cement pole in the river he couldn't climb or go under the fence too deep in the water. The auxiliary police told me he has been in there several hours and the humane society was unable to come till next day I started to panic I watched this little guy try so hard to remove himself. I told my daughter we have to get him out so my son and daughter went in the water bent the fence upwards to swim under they went to the other fence with my daughter inside the trapped area and my son on the other the baby was looking at them knowing they were gonna save him my daughter struggled to get him out but he was also scared, I kept telling her to hold onto the fence for some safety for herself my son was holding the other fence up which they ripped out from under the water.My daughter used a big piece of plastic as they lured it to the opening he fussed but they got him out people were clapping and saying thank you to my beautiful children, mind you they both stink like dirty nasty water but it was so worth it. I just want to say thank you to my children Robert Renaud and Shyanne Browning for being brave enough to go in the river also love you both very proud mother
To the young man (and his kind parents) in Tecumseh at Green Acres Park who found and returned my son's Ipod. Pretty sure you play for LaSalle (black uniform with Antonios logo). We will be looking for you next time we play against you, we have a special lil something for your honestly and just being a good human!
He was so bummed thinking he lost it, and I literally just finished a conversation with him about how some people are honest and do the right thing and how he might get lucky enough to get it back, then boom! You guys called my husband saying where you were with it! You showed my 6 year old there are good, honest, kind people out there! Cant thank you all enough not only for returning it but for being a good soul!
See you at the field soon!
Yesterday was our monthly Pok mon GO community day. Over 200 of us gathered at Willistead Park to catch hundreds of larvatar, hoping for the illusive shiny. Friends were made, funds were raised for Habitat for Humanity Windsor-Essex (thank you for the surprise refreshment booth!!), and a beautiful couple started their life journey together in marriage. As the bride was walked down the aisle, we all moved to the other side of the park to keep their day special, and remarked sadly at the rain that started shortly after. Congrats to the new couple, and may the rain bless your life together!
