Dedicated to the general sights, news and funny happenings in the wonderful city of Windsor
The English as a Second Language (ESL) department at St. Clair College has gathered treasures for gift boxes that we are going to send to Canadian troops that are stationed overseas at Christmas.
It was fun to shop for the items, compare with each other about what we bought and then gather and send them out.
5 large boxes will be sent off
We included things like playing cards, chocolate, candy, toiletries and Christmas scented air fresheners.
I have enclosed the pictures...in case you want to add these to the page!!
We are hoping that this will become an annual event with other schools joining in the fun of giving!!
I would like to give a special thanks to the great recycling guys today. I was struggling to get my son to school today, he missed the bus cause he hates going everyday. You taking the extra time to say hi and bye back, then honk the horn special for my boys was just AWESOME. For once he literally RAN into school cause he was so excited and wanted to tell his whole class about the cool recycling guys.
Signed a very greatful mommy
Spotted : To the older gentleman I see every day walking down Tecumseh Road. He seems to be walking all the way Howard to Jefferson every day, all year 'round!
Way to go keeping up with a healthy lifestyle no matter what your age!
Hopefully I can keep up the exercise my whole life!

To Our Surprise..my Niece thought it was a joke at first...but it wasn't The Gentle Man was just doing a Random Act of Kindness. It nice to know that there are still some Kind people left in this world....So to this Man..I Thank You, For Restoring My Faith In Believing that there is Still some Kind People out there....So I now I have to think of a way to pay it forward as well.
Hi spotted in Windsor
I spot a little girl with a big heart. I know every mom is proud of their kids but my daughter has done something that makes me beyond proud. From November 1st till today December 5th she has collected more than 300 winter accessories( hats, mittens and scarves) that she is donating tomorrow to help the needy during the cold months. We will be going to the Hiatus house and street help/ unit 7 homeless services. She is beyond proud and I think this helps bring some holiday spirit in all of us. She has been helped by so many friends, relatives and people we don't even know that heard of her little campaign..
Small gifts, big difference.
Proud of my Tatum.
To the Walkerville 8 bus driver the past couple of days around 8:30. I have been having a rough week. Running late, busses driving past me or being extremely late, arguments with my boyfriend over stupid things.. Seeing how cheerful and kind you are to everyone who gets on your bus brought a smile to my face. The way you wish everyone a good day as they get off the bus and say good morning to those who are getting on reminds me that not every bus driver seems to hate their job. Thank you for cheering me up on a day I needed it.
To the lady who came in to my work place this after noon around 4 and asked me to make copies for her it wasn't very nice to threaten me with spotted in Windsor and take my business card after I declined politely and said sorry. There was no need for threats. I think staples and Mr copies are places you need to go to for copies I'm sorry again if you thought I didn't want to help you.

I have renewed faith in the season. I wanted to make a difference in my neighbours Christmas. They have been through a lot lately, Cancer, not working, single income cut dramatically. They have two children 5 and 8. I see them everyday and wanted to put a sparkle in their eye by gathering up donations of food and money. They do not know this is happening but I have had a great response from my family and friends. I cannot remember the last time I have felt so overjoyed. I always give to charities, but what a difference when you know the recipients. I will be presenting them with boxes of food and a good amount of money. I cannot wait to see their faces. The kids have been so sad and worried that I just wanted to make sure they had a good Christmas. Thanks to all who gave so generously...you truly are the spirit of Christmas.
