Dedicated to the general sights, news and funny happenings in the wonderful city of Amherstburg
I wanted to thank Trisha, from the bakery at Sobeys Amherstburg for creating the best cake ever for my daughter's birthday! She had called last week to inform me that in spite of all their best efforts, the image machine at their store would just not work and they would be unable to provide me with the image we ordered for our cake. She gave me a couple of other options of what we could do on the cake. I thanked her and said we will figure something out. I had to call back a short time later to clarify a couple of thinks and she repeatedly thanked me for being so kind and not getting mad at her. She had made several calls that day and most had not been received well. I went on a hunt for something to put on this cake and finally settled on a package of stickers I found at a dollar store. My daughter's party was dog themed, so it had to fall into that category. I took the stickers in to Tricia and she was so nice and thanked me again for being so nice and pleasant about the situation and introduced me to her coworkers as her favorite customer that was so nice about the cake. I laughed and left the stickers in her capable hands. We'll let me tell you, not only did the cake look amazing, my daughter was jumping up and down saying it was even better than the boring picture she was supposed to get and it was the best cake ever because no one will ever have one like it!
I would also like to say shame on the people that were so enraged with this poor woman that was just doing her job. She has no control over the machine and they had done everything in their power up until that point to rectify the issue. They were offering other solutions to try and accommodate the orders. My daughter cried at first when I told her, but she's a child and I would expect that reaction from a child.
Hey everyone !
Today (May 31) I was walking down university going east. I stopped at University and Langlois and found a 2017 Graduation class picture from the UofW Bachelors in Education.
If this is yours please email me, and I will gladly give it back to you :)
The windy sky was appropriate on this special day as we celebrated the raising of our beautiful Canadian flag (http:/ / www.greatcanadianflag.com). The flag was raised at Dieppe Gardens as many gathered together cheering and applauding. As O' Canada echoed through the crowd, gunshots were fired as a part of Windsors 125th Birthday celebrations. Everyone was filled with such joy watching the amazing addition to our Windsor skyline.
Bruce and Alfred are 8 month old brothers born in early Sept 2016. They have been fixed, microchipped, vaccinated, dewormed, and have received flea treatments with paperwork to prove! No vet visits necessary, just take them home! They are bonded and must be kept together upon adoption. Both have an excellent temperament, calm and lots of purring. Alfred is quiet and dignified, likes to play but prefers to cuddle. Opposed by Bruce who is shy at first but always ready to chase a ball and is only ready to cuddle once tuckered out. These two are perfect for a busy household or someone who enjoys the companionship but perhaps doesn't always have time to play with cats. Bruce offers play time for Alfred and Alfred is always willing to cuddle with Bruce! This is the benefit to adopting two cats! Not as much work as one cat alone!
They are good with children and are used to being around small to medium sized dogs; I'm sure given a little time they could get used to large dogs.

My mom was at a party last night at the legion in Amherstburg and someone in a truck backed into her car. They left the scene and someone outside smoking got a partial of the license plate REG 10. The police have been contacted and there is over $2000 in damage. If anyone recognizes this plate please contact me. The person outside forgot to leave the colour of the truck so I'm not sure the colour, make or model. Please help me and share this post. My mom is so upset. This person hit a burgundy fusion so pending on the colour it may have rubbed off on their truck. Thanks so much 🙌🏻
Today, I had the unfortunate incident of my car slipping into a ditch due to snow flying everywhere on Howard and County Rd 20. I just wanted to thank everyone who stopped and checked to make sure I was okay and asked me if I needed help. The house in front of where the incident happened, thank you so much for coming out of your house and helping me. Also, to the OPP officers and the Fireman who also checked in on me to make sure I was okay and drove behind me until I was completely okay, thank you. It's people like all of you who still make me believe that there are good people out there. Thank you again.
Hello everyone! I feel as if my wife and I have missed a memo regarding the new unspoken rule on speeding. Growing up (I'm 31) I was taught that everyone does 10 over the limit, driving the actual speed limit will get you tailgated and birded. We've always honored that rule but we find tailgating to be getting much worse in the last few years. Especially on 80km highways (Howard out of Windsor is really bad!!)
Just hoping to hear some opinions, is it time for us to speed up?
I just wanted to say thank you soooooo much to the person at no frills in Amherstburg. They witnessed a white chrylser 300 hit my car while I was shopping and was kind enough to take down her licence plate number and leave it for me!!! It is so greatly appreciated!!!
