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,

Chances are, if you happened to have been drinking something while reading the title of this latest computer chickenscratch, then many of you might have spewed out your beverage. Just allow me to explain the following to you.

I often eat breakfast out on my days off. And there's a small local chain closeby that has breakfast and lunch available, and I like to stop in. The OldWest Cafe is the name of the place, and it's mighty fine. Lots of things they have on...

Lubbock Coming Up To The Times With New Water Towers

Posted 04-21-2021 at 06:42 PM by case44 (Welcome To Case's Column)

Could it be? It is. Lubbock is still stuck in the 1970s with the water tower inventory it currently has. You would think that, if the city had done some more aggressive growing in the '70s and '80s, then maybe, we would have seen what the city is fixin' to build about thirty years ago, at least in part.

But, alas, Lubbock is just now getting to this.

Look, it's better late than never at all. Lubbock is finally replacing their three...

Number 9 Turns Out To Be Very Stubborn

Posted 04-20-2021 at 08:42 PM by case44 (Welcome To Case's Column)

When it's time for me to go to the apartment complex workout room, I usually trudge on over until I get to the door. Like other rooms in the main leasing office building, there are security locks with combos where you must punch in some buttons which set off the sensors.

You know the drill.

So, on came tonight. All I needed was to use the stationary bike. As I approached the entry door to the workout room, it came time to punch in four buttons with...

Houston's KTRK-TV Gets People Far Away Up Close

Posted 04-19-2021 at 07:20 PM by case44 (Welcome To Case's Column)

Say what you will about YouTube, what with all the recent bad publicity about unnecessary censorship. You can actually still see some things on that same service that actually matter, and the powers that be won't have to censor a thing.

I love sunrises. I love sunsets. And, lately, I love city camera views of places way outside my apartment patio. Thanks to YouTube and Houston's KTRK-TV (Channel 13, ABC), the station offers city camera views from two Houston...

The Democrat Party Is Definitely The Party Of ISIS

Posted 04-19-2021 at 12:58 PM by case44 (Welcome To Case's Column)
Updated 04-19-2021 at 05:53 PM by case44

Once upon a time, and it wasn't that long ago, that President Donald J. Trump declared victory over a terrorist cell group called ISIS. Our military should be lauded for attacking the leader of that horrible caliphate to lessen its impact on the world.

Well, now that Joe Biden is our so-called 46th president of these great United States, thanks to a rigged and stolen election, he's issued so many executive orders that we're all woozy by now just trying to keep up. ...
