Dedicated to the general sights, news and funny happenings in the wonderful city of Windsor
Friday my car broke down on Lauzon right in front of the fire hall, a man stoped to help push, another man stopped and tried to help. A man from the car wash tried to boost us, a woman stopped to give cold bottles of Water as it was going to take the tow truck and hour.
Besides these people, 5 other people stopped to try and help. I have to say I am proud I live in Windsor, where people help people!!! Also a big Thank you to the tow truck driver, that did a lot of work in this heat. Believe me I will never drive by a car on the side of the road.
This is to the employee working overnight last night at the 7-Eleven Tec. W. @ McD. You do a fantastic job even with customers coming at you from all directions. Fast, efficient, knowledgeable, and you talk like you're real. Keep going with that. Great fit for the place. The chain needs more of you. :)
Reward for lost phone. Lost in Devonshire Heights area most likely. Black iphone7 with translucent green UAG phone case. Lock screen photo is my daughter and husband. Please, if anyone knows anything or found it, I need those family memories on my phone (not all are backed up). Offering reward for safe return.
Lost Tuesday, June 26th between 5:30 and 8:00 pm.
I was running behind and left the house without my umbrella or rain coat, I just grabbed my sweater and left running to catch my bus. When I get to my stop, there was a young lady waiting with her umbrella. While I tried to get my stuff together and put on my sweater, she came over to my side and provided cover. I'll admit, I was surprised, I thanked her a couple times. It was a bit awkward, but not the wierd kind, because I didn't know her and yet she was so sweet for her kind gesture. Thank you so much Miss. Umbrella-ella!!! Sorry I didn't ask for your name.
To the blonde woman driving a white SUV crossover, heading North on Lauzon Pkwy at Forest Glade drive, thank you. I was the poor sap in the black Chysler 200 that was disabled going south bound towards EC Row. You called an ambulance because you saw me sobbing and unable to breathe. I apreciate your convern for a complete stranger :) My rear tire blew and I was having an absolute panic attack with my sister in the vehicle. We are both ok and the ambulance attendant made sure I was ok enough to drive. :) Thank you so much for showing empathy and restoring faith in humanity.
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!
