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!

Regards,

Daylight Time / Standard Time: Why Can't We Get It Down?

Posted 10-09-2014 at 03:05 PM by case44 (Welcome To Case's Column)

As if the dumbing down of America really weren't enough, I just have to look far and wide and run into things that make me scratch my head. Tragically, with this society, it doesn't take too long. Since I'll focus on only one issue here, how come we can't get that America ....................is on Daylight Time right now?

I am amazed how many folks don't realize it. We haven't fallen back yet, and people like to think we're always on Standard Time. Yes, except...

The Astros Could Learn Something From The Royals' Success

Posted 10-08-2014 at 03:07 PM by case44 (Welcome To Case's Column)

Before any more excitement reaches Houston, Texas, we have some intense excitement already going on in Kansas City, Missouri, today. Postseason excitement, in this case. Baseball fever is finally back in the Fountain City. The Royals are enjoying the fruits of a rebuilt franchise, and the fans' patience has certainly been rewarded.

Remember the Tampa Bay Rays when they went from last to first in 2008 and began a great run of playoff contention and playoff participation...

Case's Sunday Funny: Accentuating The Accent

Posted 10-05-2014 at 02:47 PM by case44 (Welcome To Case's Column)

Every now and then, I do a thing on these blog pages called the Sunday Funny. That is, if I try to do it on Sunday....

This time around, I've got some great stuff for your edification and perusal. I just love Sofia Vergara. She is the star of the ABC-TV comedy series, "Modern Family", and is one of the world's most beautiful women. She's also very funny, too, as it is the use of her heavy Colombian accent that has made her act work. Besides, I...

Lend Me Your Ears -- I Just Love Good Corn On The Cob

Posted 10-04-2014 at 07:17 PM by case44 (Welcome To Case's Column)

I don't eat it this often enough, but I've got to get some next chance I get. Now, my groceries for the next two weeks have been bought, so this writer will need to wait a little longer. But I admit, I just don't eat the following food item often enough, no matter what my main course is. I'm talking about fresh, hot corn on the cob. It's messy once it's prepared the way I'm going to describe it, but it's very delicious.

Take two ears of corn and put them...

Altuve Is Going To Be Something Special

Posted 09-23-2014 at 07:02 PM by case44 (Welcome To Case's Column)

Even if the Houston Astros aren't in the playoffs this season (and they won't be), that doesn't mean that there won't be a lot of buzz. Now that the team is past the three worst seasons in franchise history, it's time now to look up. And they have a player this season who has had his best season as a major leaguer and is positioned to be the team leader for years to come. Oh, he's been with them since they were still in the National League in 2011, but he's making a lot more noise...
