Dedicated to the general sights, news and funny happenings in the wonderful city of Windsor
Yesterday my son asked me what kind of clothes they wore in Ancient Egypt. We talked about it, and it got me thinking about my high school history classes.
I graduated from Riverside in 2003, and my history teacher for most of those years was Ms. Siddle. She was such an amazing teacher. She really knew what she was teaching, and you could tell that she was really interested in what she was teaching. I still have almost all of my notes and "cheat sheets" from her classes. I was a lazy high school kid. I skipped class and I just didn't want to be there. I recently learned that she is still at Riverside, teaching history, and I wish I could go back and learn from her now that I'm an adult. It's really the only thing that would ever make me want to go back to high school. Her whole class was dictation and note taking, but she made history interesting, and funny, and animated. Those classes were really something special and I'm thankful to have taken them. Any of you kids that have her for a teacher now, cherish her. There aren't too many teachers like her.

I just wanted to let everyone know what great service my mother and I got yesterday at Armandos on Walker Rd. On a very rainy and gloomy day our server, Margaret, made us laugh and treated my mother with so much kindness that I will tell everyone I know to go eat there! Their food is always excellent and we will eat there in the future but in this world of people so eager to post negative things I just wanted to let everyone know what a delight Margaret was. Thank you so much!
I would like to give a huge shoutout to the Capri Pizza on Dougall Avenue. I am a grade school teacher, and I was looking to get some pizza boxes donated for a classroom fraction project. After calling several local pizzerias, I was at a loss.
However, after contacting the owner at that particular Capri Pizza, he was quite happy to donate pizza boxes for all of my students. He had his workers organize them all for me, and even bring them out to my car! My students absolutely loved this project and they learned a lot about fractions. We completed a thank you card for the owner and after presenting it to him, he was so happy with the kids' work, that he offered to bring us a free pizza at school!
I cannot tell you how much the project meant to the students, but the fact that the owner was so generous as to donate a pizza to them as well, made them ecstatic. Thank you for your generosity! #choosekind
To the honest person who found my 3 yr old granddaughter's little "Hello Kitty Purse" that had $25 in it and had her precious little treasures at Tecumseh Mall and turned it into the security office, you not only turned a frown upside down, but you restored my faith with showing me that there are honest Windsor people! You've been Spotted! We greatly appreciate your honesty and good faith!
Happy Grandma and Happy Granddaughter
Thank you to the kind lady I let in the line this morning at Timmies on Howard and Grand Marais for paying for my donut and bagel. I gave the cashier my $5 to donate to the broncos instead!!!! Very good morning indeed
To the incredibly kind person who found my phone in the back parking lot of Shopper's Drug Store at 500 Tec Rd East in Windsor, THANK YOU for bringing my phone inside & leaving it with the Post Office. I drove back looking for it within the hour, knowing the last I saw it was in Shoppers but not aware that it fell out of the pocket of my coat while getting into my car. I was very surprised someone had turned it in knowing that it was found in the parking lot! You are awesome!!! Thank you so much!!! ❤
My boyfriend and I went to Spago's for lunch. When it came time for the bill, the waiter, David, told us, You're free to go. Him and I were confused, looked at each other, and then asked if it could be on one bill. David says, There is no bill, I lost it! We were lost for words and so grateful and so blessed!! We love that there is still kindness in people's hearts. Thank you for paying for the lunch!!
I know that a lot of people have stories of bad customer service, especially when it comes to big box stores, but I wanted to share how wonderful Lowes in Windsor was this past weekend.
We needed a new dishwasher, so earlier in the week, we went to Lowes to find one. We pushed the help button in the appliance section and waited for what seemed like forever for someone to come help. Jeremiah came to answer our call and help us. He made our shopping experience extremely enjoyable. He was very knowledgeable and had us laughing like we we had known him for years. If you ever want to know anything about anything, seek out Jeremiah, he's a fountain of useless knowledge!! LOL
When it came time to pick up our purchase, I went to the store and unfortunately, there was a hiccup. They couldn't find our dishwasher (when it came off the truck, it wasn't put where it should have been). I waited for a long time and had to leave - needless to say, I was not happy. That's where Chris (who I think is the Manager of the Appliance section) came into the picture. I wasn't satisfied with having to go back to the store again and made that clear. Chris was so accommodating and friendly, I didn't even have a chance to spew out the angry dialogue I had prepared to give him. Chris went above and beyond and personally made sure our dishwasher was delivered to our door within hours. He too made us feel like we truly mattered. I can't thank these two gentlemen enough for their exceptional customer service!
If you happen to know either of these two men, please tell them they are appreciated.
Thank you Jeremiah and Chris, you will definitely be seeing us again for future purchases.
