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,

case44

How Not To Carry A Heavy Television Set Down The Steps

Posted 01-13-2019 at 08:54 PM by case44 (Welcome To Case's Column)

I just know y'all will probably giggle at this, and we all need a good laugh now and then. Not too long ago, I had purchased a new flat-screen television for my living room. Great, crisp reception as only one can get from a new TV in this day and age.

Well, Case had to lift up the old TV and put it down on the floor at the ol' abode. It weighs about seventy pounds. And I live on the second floor. Dilemma? Doesn't have to be. What is a guy with an...

Fine Dining Etiquette: Where Has It Gone?

Posted 01-11-2019 at 05:32 PM by case44 (Welcome To Case's Column)

In the parlance of fancy restaurants, one would think that there'd have to be a strict dress code to be able to consume anything in such a place. It used to be that formal or semi-formal gatherings would be respected or revered, and, therefore, lived up to when people gather at a fine dining establishment.

Fast forward to 2019 now. I'm going to places like Brio or Bob's Steak & Chop House or some other fine eatery, and I notice a few people managing to show up in...

Stock Show Time Again In The Lone Star State

Posted 01-09-2019 at 07:28 PM by case44 (Welcome To Case's Column)

I just don't want anyone asking me, "Where's the beef?" In four Texas metros, the four best-known livestock shows and expositions will once again drop anchor in the next three months. Lots of animals. Lots of food. And, yes, lots of people. All are going to be top-notch, star-studded events.

Fort Worth is doing it first. Cowtown has their fest from January 18 to February 9 at the massive Will Rogers Memorial Center complex, now accented...

So Many Years Later, Elvis Is Always Being Remembered

Posted 01-09-2019 at 06:59 PM by case44 (Welcome To Case's Column)

He'll always be the King of Rock and Roll. His birthdate --- Did you notice that? --- was yesterday. Elvis Presley would have been 84 had he lived. Would he have performed during these last several years?

We'll never know the answer.

In the Music forums, one of my biggest joys is posting music sung by Elvis and the stuff he did. Periodically, you'll spot one of them in some of my more common outposts. Elvis. Singer. Actor....

Look At What I Just Spotted On 'The Hill' --- Juicy!

Wow, gang! Take a look at the following link. Great stuff from an unexpected source about the mindset of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (or something of that nature). This bit did not get touched by much of our mainstream media.

It's really good stuff, too. Look into the following link.
