Dedicated to the general sights, news and funny happenings all around the world
Spotted : My 8 y/ o nephew who turned 8 on nov 27. He's such a sweetheart. Says I don't care about presents on my birthday as long as I get to spend it with my family. Just after I tucked him into bed and it made me cry!
He also told me last night. You can have my piggy bank money to help pay the bills! How thoughtful but no thank you buddy. (Bills are much more than what he has plus I don't want his little money he has saved)
I felt like a very proud Auntie!
Him, his two siblings along with myself also brought some unopened toys from over the year that had not been touched down to the fire department and gave back!! Though not much, the experience meant a lot.
He melts my heart with his kindness and generosity
A Proud Auntie
Just want to vent about it horrible Santa experience at Devonshire today. Free or not an hour and a half wait and then pushed out by the next family after 30 seconds and 4 quick snaps. Didn't even get a chance to try and get my 10 month old to not be scared by Santa! Ridiculous! They definitely didn't longer on the bigger kids talking to Santa and pushed my babies aside like they weren't as important! So sad!
I'd like to give a shoutout to Rainbow Painting. I had a mild mold problem in my basement (in Riverside, surprise, surprise). Mark had come to my house to remove some drywall, and redo small affected areas. Not only do I feel comfortable leaving ANYONE from Rainbow Painting alone in my home (as they are very trustworthy), but Mark had left a note on my kitchen table, saying that I would need to re-putty before I repainted, along with a small tub of putty for me.
So, props goes out to Mark from Rainbow Painting. They are an amazing company with very reliable, great staff and do fantastic work as well.
A very impressed and grateful customer

I cannot believe you purchased GTA 5 for your seven year old son despite the employee informting you of it's rating and that it has uncensored nudity and a mission where you have to film people having graphic sex. Your response? "He's a mature 7 year old". Wow..
Shocked and disgusted costumer behind you
To the cute security guard at Met Hospital:
Thanks for always making my day with your bright smile and fake pout when I tell you "no". Here's hoping you know you have been SPOTTED!

Spotted : My favourite uncle, who passed away on Wednesday night after a lengthy battle with ALS. You were robbed of the ability to eat, and the ability to speak. Three weeks ago, a caregiver asked you what the downsides of your disease were. No longer able to speak, you wrote this note:
"Downsides: I cannot speak.
I cannot eat.
I love life.
And when my time comes, I will still be smiling"
Thank you for sharing those wonderful words of wisdom with those of us who must now face the holidays without you. You enjoyed your life until the very last moment, and proved to us that it is not the years in your life, but the life in your years. We plan to display a copy of this note in a prominent place in our home, to remind us that if you could remain so positive and happy knowing what your future held, surely we can choose to be happy in the face of our obstacles as well.
Love your inspired niece
Spotted : To the lady driving the black SUV on Howard this afternoon. You were texting and driving and weren't looking at the road. I had my young child in the vehicle and you were all over the road as you laughed at that "important" text. I was in the passenger seat so I was able to count to 5 seconds that you didn't look up at the road. When you were honked at, you shot us 'the finger'. Please know that your actions can cause a death or injury of someone else or even yourself. Be careful!
Spotted : To the lady in the black Cadillac at the timmies on wyandotte and lauzon around 4pm today...on a day when I've been struggling with some people in life not being able to grasp the fact that it truely is the little things that count. You, a complete stranger put a smile on my face and filled a void with such a tiny gesture. Thank you for buying my coffee, I paid it forward instantly and bought for the next car and hope it brightened their day, even just a lil!! :-)
