Dedicated to the general sights, news and funny happenings all around the world
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
Yesterday at 3:50 PM, merging onto Huron Church from the Parkway. A chunk of ice fell off the transport in front of us and hit the windshield. Please. Please remember to clean off your vehicles thoroughly as this could have easily been much worse! PS- if anyone saw this reach out!
Around 12:45pm on Monday February 11th, I ran in to the hospital with my 8 month old daughter who was having a scary allergic reaction. It is now 3:45, we're home safe and sound, and I have so many people I want to thank!
First, to the 3 women waiting to go into triage ahead of me. They saw how frantic and terrified I was, so they helped to calm me down and assured me my daughter was going to be okay. One of them happened to be a nurse herself, and she reassured me that my baby's colour looked okay and that her crying meant she was still breathing. They all insisted I go ahead of them in triage, even though it was busy in emerg and they would have to wait longer. How selfless! I hope at least one of them reads this, and if so, please know that I am SO grateful for your kindness!
Second, to the entire team at Erie Shores Healthcare. I can't say enough good things about the care we received today! They admitted us immediately after triage, and we were greeted by the sweetest, most friendly and attentive nurse, I believe his name was David. He was amazing with my shy little girl and couldn't stop gushing about how excited he was to have such a cute patient. He begged to stay with us, but was needed elsewhere. Then we had another awesome nurse named Kim, she was very kind. And lastly, the incredible doctor we had, I wish I could remember his name. He took such good care of us and was very helpful and informative. He even called me personally when I got home to say he'd feel better if he could send in a prescription for an EpiPen for her, just in case something happens again before we see the allergist he referred us to.
And I can't forget the rest of the staff members that would walk by or pop in just to say hi to her and remark on her cuteness. We encountered so many friendly people today!
As a first time mom, this was the scariest experience of my life, but I am beyond thankful for all the wonderful people who helped us through it!
