Welcome To Case's Column

Let me say a big welcome to all of you for joining me here. I'm going to call these blog meetings Case's Column. I wanted to use "Corner", but that was already taken. Since 2008, it's been a real privilege to come on here and share some of my life with you, and it's a big world where we live.

In these blogs, I'll just speak whatever is on my mind, but we will be playing within the rules here. I may pick a particular topic, point out an event, or shoot the breeze. I'm a little bit of an essayist at times, so I'll just speak what's on my mind, and I might tell a story or two. Or, I might spew out an opinion or three. There will be some serious moments, some tender, some poignant, but there will also be those moments that you'll just bust out laughing. But, hopefully, everything will be in good fun here. And, of course, there's a place below for your comments and thoughts as we go along here. So feel free to join me for the ride -- I sure as heck hope I'm doing this right and not making any mistakes.

Thanks for taking your time in reading Case's Column. Hopefully, you'll enjoy being entertained by it as much as I've enjoyed putting these writings together. And thanks for the time you spend in City-Data.com, where it's great to be alive!

Regards,

Recent Trip Went Well, But Not Without A Little Adventure

Posted 02-28-2022 at 06:36 PM by case44 (Welcome To Case's Column)

Not long ago, I touched on the fact that I had a little road trip taken last week. I've gone over some of the details (of the weather variety) in a previous post, so I'll get down to the other things.

I left Dallas (which looked like Scotland Yard with all that fog) Monday to head for Texarkana. Yep, the place on the state line. My hotel was on the Arkansas side, but then, Interstate 30 is loaded up with hotels. Nearly all of Texarkana's hotels happen to be located...

CPAC, By Far, Going Way Better Than Anything The Upcoming SOTU Will Offer

Posted 02-26-2022 at 06:38 PM by case44 (Welcome To Case's Column)

This weekend's CPAC (Conservative Political Action Conference) in Orlando has been powerful, as it always is every year. Lots of great speakers, not the least of which is President Donald J. Trump, came out and spoke in rallying American patriots to help work together to take our great country back.

I'll tell you this: CPAC is way better than what will likely happen this coming Tuesday when faux president Joe Biden* will give a lame State of the Union address which no...

The CDC, For Once, Actually Decided To Do The Right Thing

Posted 02-26-2022 at 02:40 PM by case44 (Welcome To Case's Column)
Updated 02-26-2022 at 03:18 PM by case44

Our government is loaded with cheats, thieves, and hypocrites, but then, you already know that. I have been very skeptical and wary of the Centers for Disease Control, which is a legit agency supposedly working for us, but for the last few years, had actually been playing a few games with many Americans during the COVID-19 plandemic.

I was elated to learn of a decision made by that same CDC while watching local news earlier this week during my East Texas road trip....

Concerns Over Weather Didn't Stop The Case On His Vacation

Posted 02-26-2022 at 02:29 PM by case44 (Welcome To Case's Column)

Just when I think it couldn't possibly happen two years in a row....

Watching the weather forecasts going into my Ark-La-Tex and East Texas road trip, I never thought that my part of the country would have another Arctic front moving through. Well, sure enough, Mother Nature decided to leave the back door open again, but this time, Case was in a better place. You see, last year, I was planning this same Ark-La-Tex trip in February, but we all saw what...

A Look At The Past With A North Texas Connection

Posted 02-20-2022 at 07:32 PM by case44 (Welcome To Case's Column)

Back in the late-1960s, a short-lived game show had made inroads onto television via syndication. It was a Chuck Barris-created quiz show entitled, "The Game Game".

Yeah, I know. Stupid name for a game show, but its concept actually was quite good, and also thought-provoking.

In the following YouTube vid, you'll see a couple of people who have something in common. Before they made names for themselves on television, they worked...
