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!

Regards,

Oklahoma's Fried Onion Burger Day Must Not Be Forgotten

Posted Yesterday at 06:42 PM by case44 (Welcome To Case's Column)

It happens every year right around this time. Oklahoma's burger faithful gather in El Reno each May for their annual Burger Day. The tradition was spurred by the likes of Sid's and Robert's, both fixtures of the combo of shallot and ground round.

Every year, sure. But not this year. Why? Because of COVID.

Stupid Chinese communists robbing us of our joy again, but I digress. Okies and anyone else just love a good fried onion burger,...

Warm greetings once again, my fair readers. Time to do some Scattershooting, right here on City-Data for your reading and absorbing pleasure. Besides, I could just write fifteen different blog posts on the things about to get covered here, but then, why wait until July for the fifteenth post?

Baseball has been back, but, boy, we've had some mighty fine pitching in the early months. In fact, four no-hitters have already been...

Before We Celebrate Mothers, We Can Celebrate Windmills

Posted 05-08-2021 at 08:58 PM by case44 (Welcome To Case's Column)

This might make many Texans rejoice, but today is National Windmill Day. I've taken this from the trusty Calendar of Strange Holidays, and, well, there it was.

Even though it's actually a bigger day in The Netherlands than it is in Texas, fellow statesmen can still celebrate a real Texas tradition. Windmills? Of course! Every highway I drive on in my state has a windmill, usually on a ranch or someone's farm. You could say it's a staple of country living....

The Only Way The Left Wins Elections Anymore Is By Cheating

Posted 05-07-2021 at 07:33 PM by case44 (Welcome To Case's Column)
Updated 05-09-2021 at 06:08 AM by case44

You know that they stole it. They did, folks.

And even stolen elections have their own set of consequences. We are watching corruption re-entering the D.C. cluster as never before. America will never be on the mend unless it has enough people willing to fight back.

States are just now putting together new laws to protect themselves and preserve election integrity. The left calls it voter suppression, but folks, they're crying because they just...

Some Things Are Better Served On My Own

Posted 05-03-2021 at 02:43 PM by case44 (Welcome To Case's Column)
Updated 05-03-2021 at 05:25 PM by case44

As a C-D member, I've seen all kinds of things happen on this forum through the years. You and I have seen the good, the great, the brilliant, the so-so, the bad, the ugly, the redundant, the farcical, and the nonsensical.

Yes, such things do happen on City-Data , where it's great to be alive.

Some posters get it and others don't. And when it comes to starting new threads, you have to have something to keep it going, where there will...
