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,

Big Mac Attack? How About A Bigger One For Size?

I'm sure you've heard all the rumors about McDonald's in their quest for innovation and, at the same time, trying to win back what had been said to be lost customers. Honestly, I don't think they've lost that many, as my local Mickey D's still has streams of customers every time I pass by. Right now, they've got a heck of a promotion going on in two cities for a test. Dallas, Texas, and Columbus, Ohio, are the two markets for this test.

I decided to go in a few...

Scattershooting / The Loss Of A Texas Sportswriter

Posted 04-29-2016 at 07:20 PM by case44 (Welcome To Case's Column)

Here I go again with more Scattershooting right here on City-Data, where it's great to be alive. And here you go again with reading this blog page and becoming more informed each day, you'd swear you must have been at a Holiday Inn Express. Let's get the proceedings underway.

********

The inspiration (in part) for my Case's Column blog page has just passed away. He was a longtime Texas sportswriter with his own backwoods personality and dry wit....

Spring Storms Can Bring Some Unusual Illusions

Posted 04-29-2016 at 11:38 AM by case44 (Welcome To Case's Column)

You know it can get crazy during spring in Texas when you start imagining things. Passing showers or flashes of lightning can oftentimes have been known to occasionally bring forth a crazy dream or illusion. That's especially true when you're just trying to wake up in the early morning.

And one instance occurred on my way to work a few mornings ago. We'd just come off of a night of a passing thunderstorm that, several hours earlier, had gotten overhyped by local meteorologists....

Do I? Well, I'll Think About It

Posted 04-25-2016 at 08:01 PM by case44 (Welcome To Case's Column)

Have you ever bought something at SuperTarget or Walgreen's or some other outlet, and you were at the cash register and the cashier would ask you if you would like to be "a rewards member"? Ever had that?

I have. Most times, whenever I'm buying something and not wanting to spend a great deal of time at the store, I'd just shrug it off or tell the cashier "I'll think about it". That's apparently the easy way out of things, id-nit? "I'll think...

Astros Off To A Slow Start: Is It Time To Panic?

Posted 04-23-2016 at 08:16 AM by case44 (Welcome To Case's Column)

Houston baseball fans have had plenty of reason to get excited about a new season, given that their Astros had their best season in years this past year, with its first playoff berth since their World Series sighting in 2005. Expectations are high this year, so much so that the cats at Sports Illustrated had the team highlighted on their baseball promotion cover, predicting them to win all the marbles.

And the Astros record as of this writing? How about 5-12? Houston,...
