Welcome To Case's Column

Since this will be my first venture into the mysterious world of blogging, 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.

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, I'll set aside a place here 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.

Here you are. My very first blog page. Come on in and share in the experience. I'm interested in seeing where this is all going. And thanks in advance for dropping by!




The Best Part Of Winter Has Got To Be....

Posted Yesterday at 09:22 PM by case44 (Welcome To Case's Column)

....the highs in the 60s.

If nothing else, then it'll at least get people's minds off saying that they "can't wait until March", of which I happen to be one of them. This is a great change from 40 any day. And my area saw some sunshine, too, after a few dreary days. Your writer could not help himself today, as I just had to throw on my favorite Hawaiian shirt.

Every once in a while, I take a look at the Farmer's Almanac, which...

Scattershooting / Bagwell Finally Gets The Hall Call

Gather around your neighborhood blog page, everybody, because it's time once again to do the here, there, and everywhere. It's time for Scattershooting, where you get things you won't get (well, probably won't) on the main City-Data forums or any other forum page. So, let's get some more wood to throw on our computer campfire; we don't want it getting too cold for you....


This past week, I came across something on MLB.com that I've...

The Beach Boys Just Keep On Going

Posted 01-12-2017 at 09:30 PM by case44 (Welcome To Case's Column)

Oh, sure, I may be going to Corpus Christi in a month, but there's another beach you probably should think about.

Actually, it's a band with the word 'beach' in it.

Can you believe that, fifty years later, The Beach Boys are still performing and doing tours? Well, they are. Even though Brian Wilson, one of the founding members of this legendary '60s group, is not doing much touring on his own merit, he is taking the time to do it for the 2017...

Astros Need Just One More Piece To Their Puzzle

Posted 01-09-2017 at 07:28 PM by case44 (Welcome To Case's Column)

There's an enticing situation out there. As I've read on MLB.com and on the Houston Astros website, it's hard to believe that there is an available lefty starting pitcher as good as the one these writers are talking about. That lefthander is Jose Quintana.

It's been reported that this cat is available for a trade from the Chicago White Sox, who are actually willing to part with him. Quintana is only a .500 pitcher if you look at his overall record, but he has excellent...

Corpus Christi For Case: One Month Away

Posted 01-09-2017 at 02:26 PM by case44 (Welcome To Case's Column)
Updated 01-09-2017 at 02:50 PM by case44

The most encouraging news came from my most-immediate supervisor at work: "Should be no problem", and in the most assuring tone yet. Sounds like a deal-maker to me!

Ol' Case has everything else set, calendar, hotel, and all, with the exception of an itinerary (which I often use as a guideline, but with a list of places I want to go to). I'll make said itinerary soon, but what matters now is just me saving up a few greenbacks and having my vehicle...
