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!




Baseball's True Stories: You Can't Make These Up

Posted 05-30-2022 at 11:05 AM by case44 (Welcome To Case's Column)

Two exciting and ironic baseball plays have occurred so far in the year 2022. I swear, you can't make this stuff up; it's too good.

On April 7, Seth Beer of the Arizona Diamondbacks smacked a game-winning, walk-off home run to propel his team to victory, 4-2, over the San Diego Padres in Phoenix. And here's the irony: That day was National Beer Day.

Fast-forward to May 28, where Jake Burger belts a solo homer in the fifth inning...

Proud To Still See America On Memorial Day

Posted 05-30-2022 at 10:37 AM by case44 (Welcome To Case's Column)

Every waking moment, I remain thankful that I live in the great state of Texas. While there is so much bad out there in the world, you have to do a little driving around just to see that there is still some good happening right here.

Coming back from breakfast out this morning, I took a stroll through the downtown section of Grapevine, Texas, taking in some sights along historic Main Street. Before my very eyes, there they were. One after the another, there...

Joe Espada Should Be The Astros' Next Manager

Posted 05-24-2022 at 06:30 PM by case44 (Welcome To Case's Column)

I know, y'all. I know what you all are saying to yourselves:

"Now, Case, you've got to let the season play out and let Dusty Baker make his own decision to stay or go."

We've got a lot of baseball left to play in 2022, but the Houston Astros are actually in a bit of suspense. Dusty Baker is the manager, and this season offers this legendary baseball lifer a chance to finally get a world title as manager in the big leagues, especially after coming...

Death Threats By Left Wing Goons Against Fellow Americans Need To Stop

Posted 05-24-2022 at 05:38 PM by case44 (Welcome To Case's Column)
Updated 05-24-2022 at 07:22 PM by case44

Sorry for the shocking title, folks, but unfortunately, this is where Americans find themselves today. But if you were shocked by the grim title for this blog post, then you will be even more shocked by who is responsible for the subject matter here.

Disgusted would probably be a more fitting word.

Folks, there actually are still some good people who actually work in Washington, D.C. My hat's off to Kat Cammack, a House rep from the great state of...

Kissing Skype Goodbye: Making Transitional Adjustments At Work

Posted 05-24-2022 at 05:17 PM by case44 (Welcome To Case's Column)

The powers that be in my workplace have said that Microsoft Teams will be the new communication portal for messaging and that Skype will go away on June 1. Okay, then. Change is just a way of life where I labor.

Look, there were good things about Skype in the many years I had it in my repertoire, but if workplaces want to do something different, then more power to them. All I've got to do now is adjust, play with MS Teams a little bit, and get a better feel for it....
