Today at around 4 pm on manning road near Kozy restaurant, I got into a horrible accident. Roads were slippery and the oncoming car swerved into me in what looked like an attempt to avoid hitting the car in front of them. Both cars spun oppositely across the lanes and we all had difficulty getting out of our smashed cars. With assistance we all got out, before the other car went up in flames. A man in an orange vest came out to help, check on everyone's health, and tried to keep us all calm while 911 was called. He stayed on the scene until they arrived. Another man with an army green hat insisted I wait in his warm blue car until the cops arrived, and said he felt like it was his duty to stay and make sure everyone was okay because he was first aid certified. Another man in a blue sweater also stayed and asked the family in the other car to stay in his car to keep warm until the paramedics came, also coming to check up on me. There was an overwhelming amount of kindness from complete strangers during a time of shock and I was so grateful. I'm so sorry for not getting anyone's names that helped- but you have been spotted. Thank you!
Special shout out to OPP, EMS and windsor fire for their quick response- this community is lucky to have you.
HELLO SPOTTED IN WINDSOR AND FACEBOOK!
Me and about 20 other dog lovers have organized a pitbull March this friday, February 2nd at 3 p.m, to stand up for the euthanation and BAD reputation our furry friends have received here in windsor. It will be held on ouellette and Pitt street. If you own a pitbull, or any other "dangerous" dog and tired of people judging, come out and have a voice! You don't even have to own a furry friend, you can just come if you believe and stand up for dogs right. We've made 30+ posters with sayings like "punish the deed, not the breed" and "leave the dogs alone, they just want HUGS and bones" etc etc. So please come out and have a voice. Please pass this on. Spotted in, can you also post this to Facebook or anyone can just copy paste it to Facebook as well. Thanks!
Sunday afternoon we were driving our truck down the 3300 Block of McKay and saw a man pulling a wagon with a couple little kids. One was picking up something across the street and stopped while we approached. We waved this little 5 year old in front of our truck.
"They're picking up garbage" my boyfriend says with a smile.
I thought what a great deed. Take the kids for a nice stroll and show them that they can do a good deed and help their neighbourhood look cleaner.
They had a pile of garbage in their wagon too! Maybe this post will inspire someone to do the same and have an onlooker like us drive away in awe of their kindness.
I was literally disgusted to read today about the buildings sitting vacant with large sums of unpaid taxes! Absolutely amazing! One more reason Windsor is so special! Seriously, the City doesn't collect money owed to them for years and the buildings become so worn down, they take losses?? "IF" they can take over the buildings for unpaid taxes? But that's okay us loyal tax paying Windsor residents would love to pick up the slack and continue to pay for and fund the City of Windsors fantastic financing and spending!!! Soooo, I'm thinking if those business' can have tax arrears of hundreds of thousands of dollars...Hmmm Hey everybody we're good to go, for at least a hundred years+ of not paying our city taxes, right???? Not a damn chance!!! How exactly does this happen?? Don't answer the phone(cancel it actually), don't answer the door, keep the curtains, blinds or what have you closed and put all city of Windsor finance dept. mail back in the mailbox??? Is it truly that simple? Hahahhaha Could you honestly see us getting away with not paying our taxes?Collecting taxes from business' is someones job?? Now I know why my taxes went up $120 per month to $500 monthly, and I don't even live in a mansion!!! If the city tweaks their receivable department ( collects those hundreds of thousands before it even gets to that point!!!!), maybe we can get our roads fixed???
I'm truly not surprised, Great job, NOT!!!
Want to give a BIG THANK YOU to the man at Lowe's today he picked up my husbands cell phone and tried calling us before handing it in!! We pulled up and my phone started to ring!
Thank you so much I was freaking out because I just spent a crap ton of money at Lowe's and all I could think of is I'd have to return this stuff to get him and new phone.
Thank you again!!!
