Dedicated to the general sights, news and funny happenings in the wonderful city of Windsor
I was in an accident tonight on Banwell. To the lady who stopped to help, I wanted to say thank you. I didnt get your name bc I was freaking out but you were calm, soft spoken and exactly what I needed. Thank you so much. Without you I would have been lost.
I was with my Uncle and Aunt at Costco when we were leaving we realized the vehicle we were driving had a flat tire with my uncle being legally blind and neither my aunt or I knew how to fix the tire we werent sure what to do but then out of no where a gentle man came over and tried to use fix a flat that he got out of his own car and tried for 45 mins to get air in until he realised it wasnt gonna work so just as the gentleman made the decision to help by putting the donut on and take the other tire off for us another gentleman showed up and offered to help him so it could get changed faster we were so appreciative for the help considering it was very cold out. We would just like to thank these 2 good samaritans for coming to our rescue. You've been spotted in Windsor!!
Today as my 4 yr old sons bus was approaching the bus stop I was crossing the street (corner of divine st and superior st in lasalle) to get to the bus. The bus fully stopped, lights flashing, and arm out at this point. A black car with a Male driver who decided it would be a wonderful idea to blast through and tear around the corner (going towards front rd) came within 2 feet of hitting me! I yelled at him and raised my hands to get his attention. He pointedly avoided eye contact and kept going like it was nothing.This is not the first time this happened 2 weeks ago a red minivan did this too. I am far from impressed!
I'm just so glad that the kids were not yet crossing the street while these cars decided to do this.
People, please be more mindful! This should not be happening. When lights are flashing on a bus it's for a reason, not for decoration. How would you feel if it was your child that came within feet of being struck by a reckless driver not giving 2 craps if they were crossing to get home?
On a good note! I want to thank my childs bus driver and the bus monitors (older kids from the school) for keeping a watchful eye and not letting the kids off the bus until they see it is totally safe for them to go.
Please drivers.....keep your eyes peeled for kids while driving, especially between the times of 3 and 4!
Two dogs got out of their owner's home and were having a day of it exploring, except it's FREEZING outside. A FedEx employee called over the two animals and got them into the warmth and safety of his truck before delivering them back to the owner! Now THAT is some service!
I want to Thank the 2 ladies who helped me on Saturday February 16,2019 at The Sandbar! It was my first time there with my partner and during dinner I started choking and Joe had to do the Heimlich maneuver to save my life while he was doing that 2 ladies came to help also! I do not know their names, all I know is one was a nurse and it was her Birthday.
They took me into the bathroom until I was ok which was several minutes because I could not get that piece of Steak to move. But, after several minutes and a few threats of calling an ambulance we finally got it to move. I am so sorry I did not get to thank you properly or remember your names. Hopefully you or someone you know will see this. From the bottom of my heart THANK YOU for helping to save my life. I have never been so scared in my life and you 2 ladies kept me calm, held my hair back for me and all around made me feel safe! So to Joe,my hero who says he is not a hero,I love you, and to those 2 ladies and the Staff at The Sandbar Thank you very much for all that you did for me last night. Yes, we will be back but Joe said I can only eat soup LOL. So grateful to all involved in saving my life! Forever Grateful,Kathy Hunter
Someone showed up soliciting for a charity called "Campaign for Sobriety". I looked up this name and this so called charity does not exist, I am wondering if anyone is familiar with this organization or is this a scam. My feelings are this is a door to door scam. Please see the youtube videos and see if you can recognize this person as legit?
It involves Tim Horton and the roll up the rim campaign! Remember if you win a free donut or a free coffee. just the rim is ok. If you win any major prize like a $50. gift Card. You must turn in the empty cup along with a pin number located on the cup, to claim your prize. Otherwise you lose, I learned the hard way
To the green and white transport truck driving beside me at Noon on commercial blvd and ecrow THANK YOU for slamming in the breaks and laying on the horn to avoid hitting the white Volkswagen who pulled out in front of you. THANK YOU for NOT swerving I had my 3 year old and 6 week old in the car with me. Awesome reflexes and great focus. Thank you from one very grateful Mon
