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!

Looks Like Your Writer Has A Changing Food Pattern

Posted 10-22-2021 at 01:55 PM by case44

I'd have to say it's not completely official, but things do happen when people get older. Your writer may well be showing his age.

I feel like my tastes in food might be changing. On this last trip I've just taken, I've eaten Mexican food and have, for years, been an enchilada guru. Also have liked refried beans and rice. Now, not every place I go is going to have good rice, but it seems I might be losing some desire for some of those things. I hope it's not really true, because sometimes, your writer thinks he feels like having this or that, but then things quickly change. In addition, breakfast is starting to get that way, too, with biscuits and potatoes. So has pizza, but mainly the heavier thick crust. I generally prefer thin, as it's not quite as fast-filling.

Granted, I did go to another city (for what ended up becoming a very good road trip) and did have some subpar food experiences at two places I've visited for the first time and one other which actually reopened but had its food taste and look different than before. It does happen. Such experiences are also happening close to home, as well. Maybe it's my taste buds, but also, I have needed to lose weight and have been lax in recent days in continuing the effort.

Getting older, you'd think, would have a few perks. Right now, the negative things are what's interjecting in the proceedings. Maybe I can turn the corner a bit.

    Hey, y'all, don't panic. Case is doing a better job of keeping his portions down in addition to some age, um, baggage . I still love food and still get some urges here and there. I'm still going to love life.
