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!

Well, folks, it's that time again. And, for the first time in two years, it's time for the real games to get going when they're supposed to. All thirty clubs have their sets of expectations and the usual fan anticipation. Over the course of the season, there will gradually be fans coming back in to see real baseball in person and this fan is glad!

Here, now, are my picks for the 2021 season:

The Mists Of Time: The Odd Couple On Fridays As A Kid

Posted 03-26-2021 at 06:40 PM by case44 (Welcome To Case's Column)

It seems, anymore, if it's Friday night and I happen to be thinking about it, then I can have my television on and, at 8:30, it's 1971 again. Your writer was a little boy at the time, and dad, mom, and little brother were gathered around the tube with me in the living room after CBS-TV's "O'Hara: United States Treasury" and changing the channel over to ABC-TV's "The Odd Couple".

More than that opening theme song was the post-commercial intro music...

Heard On The Radio: It Sure Sounds Like A Strange Idea

Posted 03-24-2021 at 06:08 PM by case44 (Welcome To Case's Column)
Updated 03-24-2021 at 09:02 PM by case44

As life goes by, each day presents something new. But then again, it's not every day that you get some strange advice from what seems like good intentions.

When I was listening to a radio station on my smartphone at work, a public service ad came on, and it talked about what to do in minimizing a child's asthma. One of the suggestions that got revealed had taken me totally aback, and I didn't catch the scientific reasons as to why. Folks, it seems like a strange...

My Apartment Complex Is Going Through Some Renovations

Posted 03-22-2021 at 07:05 PM by case44 (Welcome To Case's Column)

Lately, I've noticed that some of the vacant apartment units in my complex are not just getting new carpet and fresh paint. I've actually noticed that some walls are getting completely knocked out. I kid you not; there was raw wood showing as I peeked inside.

Well, hey, nothing wrong with rebuilding to make things better for the next group of residents. It's doubtful that there were any pipe issues with the units during our recent winter blast. Numerous...

Case Provides THE Answer To A Recent Forum Inquiry

Posted 03-22-2021 at 09:35 AM by case44 (Welcome To Case's Column)
Updated 03-22-2021 at 01:03 PM by case44

Certain questions and thread inquiries often asked or submitted on C-D's P&OC forums can be fair game. Other times, they're just pointless and stupid, and that garbage usually comes from a left-wing contingent who can't stand America. But for now, we'll briefly explore the former with the following inquiry in a recent thread starter.

The title of said thread is: "For Those That Didn't Vote For Biden - Name At Least One Good Thing That Biden Has Done So Far."...
