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,

case44

An Early-Morning Image Still Beckons -- And Awaits

Posted 12-29-2014 at 03:10 PM by case44 (Welcome To Case's Column)

Every now and then, I think about a place. From time to time, I take road trips down to Central Texas and Austin on an early Saturday morning. And it's time I take another one, but more on that later.

This image out of the entire trip still sticks in my mind. Oh, there are other images like Interstate 35 in the darkness while I'm listening to late-night radio shows such as The Jim Bohannon Show or Texas Overnight or Red Eye Radio. Or like the sunrise over the...

Reflecting On How I Started On City-Data

Posted 12-27-2014 at 06:00 AM by case44 (Welcome To Case's Column)

To think it all started so many years ago, but yet, here I am on blog post five hundred and something (which, itself, took all of six years to get to) and, all of a sudden, I'm reflecting once again. Forget that unplanned year-in-review post; I'd just run into a thread allowing City-Data members an opportunity to reflect on how it all began.

Yes, we shared why we have stayed on City-Data, where it's great to be alive. You'll get a lot of interesting responses....

Christmas Comedy Relief: The McRib Is Back, Then It's Gone, Then It's....

For some people, the Christmas season is a happy time. For others, it's pretty sad. So, let me brighten your Christmas night with a little funny that couldn't wait until Sunday (when I would normally do them). And this doesn't have to have anything to do with Christmas.

You know how McDonald's always brings in the McRib sandwich for a limited time, and then takes it away seemingly right after it comes back. While the following clip does exaggerate, it actually...

Case's Christmas Wishes And More For 2014

Posted 12-23-2014 at 06:45 PM by case44 (Welcome To Case's Column)

While someone named Claus is preparing his sleigh for his journey around the world tomorrow, you and I have much to look forward to as another Christmas time approaches. We can all sit back and listen to some Vince Guaraldi music and witness Charlie Brown and the gang all skating around, all the while all of you are putting the finishing touches on your holiday gift-wrapping.

This is the place to be right now, you hanging out at the old computer campfire with Jolly Old...

Anchovies Don't Have To Be Such A Fishy Subject

Posted 12-22-2014 at 06:11 PM by case44 (Welcome To Case's Column)

Ever since I was a kid, I've always loved anchovies. The first place I'd ever tried 'em, you ask? No, not out of a can atop crisp crackers, but good guess. The discovery that I so richly discovered...... was on pizza.

That's right. Pizza.

Okay, laugh all you want, sports fans. Some people like anchovies. Many don't, and that's fine (This is, after all, America....), but I do. What the impetus for it was, I don't remember,...
